We're excited to launch the first part of our new blog series: Meet The #MGirls! We wanted to reveal the driven, creative and diverse personalities behind the lovely ladies we call #MGirls...
Up first is one of our fave London ladies; Freelance Photographer, Social Media Manager and French Bulldog Enthusiast, Kate Forster!
Kate's the Girl-Behind-The-Lens for some of our recent homepage editorials and street style shoots. After starting her career at Threads Styling, Kate's been snapping all the best street style in Paris, she's been up close and personal on the runway with Gigi Hadid and her dreamy Instagram feed has become a daily obsession of ours.
It's about time we all got to know her a little more...
How would you describe yourself and you style?
I would say my style reflects my personality, super relaxed & laid back. As a photographer I have learnt that comfort is your friend!
How did you get into Photography and street style? What is your favourite thing about it?
I have always been in to Photography; when I was younger and on holiday in Paris during Fashion Month I was exposed to the world of street style. It was fast, fresh and super addictive. There are so many cutting edge trends and styles to chase and each season is more exciting than the last! My favourite time, is returning home at the end of the day and editing the imagery. As the pace is so extreme the first time I get a chance to look at anything I have shot is in the peace and quiet of a hotel room…
When you're not working, how do you spend your free time? What's your guilty pleasure?
FOOD. Living in London means and endless supply of pop-ups, new restaurant openings and supper clubs! If I am not eating out and about I love home cooking too.. In fries we trust, right?
If you had to pick one favourite trend from this season, what would it be?
I am a sucker for an oversized sleeve! Although Ive found they aren't exactly practical...especially over lunch!
What brand are you most excited about at the moment?
There are so many! I have a major Vetements crush, as well as Rosie Assoulin, Sandy Liang and I am dying to get my hands on a pair of Maryam Nassir Zadeh pumps!
White t-shirt and jeans or little black dress?
What should be a staple in every girls wardrobe?
The IT bag. Black, leather and goes perfectly with everything in your wardrobe.
Less or more?
If you were stranded on a deserted island & you were to choose one item of clothing to take with you, what would it be?
I have an old vintage Metallica tee that I found in a thrift store in LA. It’s like my second skin.. if I am going to a dessert island, it’s coming with me!
What's your favourite possession?
I am going to be cheesy, but it would have to be my engagement ring, designed by Anna Sheffield in New York!
Where do you like to spend your summers?
Preferably in Greece. The white wash architecture, blue water and pink blossom is an Instagrammers DREAM! Throw in a few cocktails and it’s the perfect vacay.
Name something you can't live without...
My dog, Lars!
Keep an eye on site to see our latest collab with Kate very soon...
