Model Monday: Katia

This season we’re warming up to the ’70s with sweet embroidered dresses, knit tops, and fur coats. Layering different textured fabrics is essential for traversing the winter weather en route to holiday shopping and parties alike, leaving you comfortable and undeniably chic. While on the go, stay grounded in a pair of leather lace-up boots or Swedish clogs. Topping off the look with soft curls or loose milkmaid braids adds a touch of retro glamour to this romantic look.

What do you enjoy about modeling? I enjoy seeing the final product, and thinking about how hard it was to get “that shot.” I like the mystery behind the photo, that nobody else but those who are on set know.
What do you think is the most pressing current social issue? Clearly global warming, we are so destructive to the planet, and without it we can’t live. I feel touched by so many other social issues, but without a planet to live on, we have nothing to fight for in the first place.
Guilty pleasure? Hamburgers
Favorite article of clothing/accessory? My best skinny jeans
Place you would want to visit? London, England
What are you currently obsessed with? Justin Bieber’s new album
What is your “guiding philosophy” for life? Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey, but they don’t need to, because for it’s not for them, it’s for yourself.
