Jacquin: You have a really interesting career background! How was your experience working at Bloomingdale’s instrumental in launching your business today? What are some key things you learned while working in visual merchandising and the buying office for Bloomingdale’s?
Kate: Haha, yes, it has been an indirect journey! My time at Bloomingdale’s was such a great foundation. I learned how to run a retail business, how to edit a collection, and then how to sell product through marketing and visual display. My experience with in-store styling and creating seasonal installations was a great education in color theory, combining patterns, and creating a cohesive overall effect. I draw from all these lessons on a regular basis.
