ABOUT

Kate Matthews has been in the image business since the age of six when she got her hands on her first makeover client­­—her dear cat Cynthia. She’s come along way since then, and to the relief of cats everywhere, has moved on to human subjects and has become a professional wardrobe stylist and brand consultant.

She began her career in 2006 while finishing her Marketing degree at the U of S. Soon after convocation, she focused on artist management along with marketing and publicity for musicians. A few years into her career in the music business, Kate was offered a coveted fashion internship at ELLE magazine. While at the magazine, she worked on photo shoots, pitched story and page ideas, wrote articles and interviewed celebrities, and learned the ropes of working at a major fashion magazine. After working at ELLE, Kate developed her niche as a wardrobe stylist and brand consultant, allowing her to combine her love of fashion, music and marketing. She has since been nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award and her placement and client list includes Warner Music Canada, Live Nation, Canadian Country Music Association, ELLE magazine, Globe & Mail, National Post, Food Network, CityTV, CTV and more. No matter the project, Kate’s goal is to help others create and convey their unique, authentic brand and to help them consistently communicate that brand.
