Founded in 1986 in Milan by Ennio Capasa, Costume National‘s design point of view can be described as Couture meets Street meets Evening wear- a complicated mix but this is what makes the Italian design company a standout. Labelled by the press as edgy-chic, Costume National‘s collections offers modern sophisticated clothing combined with the Italian design tradition of precision and architectural details. A former assistant of Yohji Yamamoto, Capasa’s clients include Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Madonna.
As a Southern California transplant now living in the Midwest, Catherine has turned layering into an art form and accepted that UGGs actually do have a place in the stylish lady's wardrobe. She's been featured in Woman's World Magazine, DrLaura.com, Refinery29, Wellness.com and has made appearances on ABC7 Chicago, FOX2News St. Louis, KCAL9 Los Angeles, Fox19 Cincinnati, WGN TV Chicago and WCPO TV Cincinnati.
