Movers & Shakers

Movers & Shakers: Kate Young

April 28, 2016

Stylist Kate Young is the woman behind Sienna Miller, Natalie Portman, and Margot Robbie's killer looks, both on and off the red carpet. She began her career as an assistant at Vogue, working with Anna Wintour and Tonne Goodman and is now one of the top stylist in Hollywood. In the last few years, she's added designer to her resume by launching a collaboration with Target and a collection with eyewear brand Tura (we used her shades at our Spring 2016 presentation).

Kate’s strong visual eye and effortless aesthetic is one of the many reasons we’ve tapped her to style our fashion week presentations and why we are excited to feature her as one of our Movers & Shakers. Read on to learn more about Kate’s personal style, her favorite red carpet moment and the secret to her success.
