GoKate FNO!


Fashion's Night Out. Was. Huge. I shot this shopping night to end all nights for Refinery 29, hitting the streets for FIVE AND A HALF HOURS to capture the best of the best street style DC had to offer. And whoo boy, did they ever have some wild and wonderful style! You can check out Refinery's 28 picks HERE, but there are over 150 in this post. A million thanks to everyone who was so indulgent in my photographic inquiries, you all look incredible! 

I started by attending the VIP media event in the Brightest Young Things lounge, which was beautifully decorated. Then I made my way down to Hu's Wear, took a quick shopping break to buy some perfect Erro leather pants and Jean Paul Gaultier cropped trousers, and then kept on shooting into the wee hours. 

This shot above is one of my very, very favorites, but it's like picking your favorite child so you'll just have to hit up the ENTIRE post after the jump!

Collar love


Tribal print perfection...with pockets! 

Interesting proportions, and I love that South American take on a backpack

Oxblood patent sneakers are a sweet take on one of fall's hottest trends

The Miu Miu shoes. SWOON. 


And the eyes and the necklace. Gorgeous. 


Sweet babydoll dress with a Peter Pan collar is made edgier with lace-up booties

The bang. The denim. The babydoll dress. Such cool personal vibe - well done!

These girls MADE MY NIGHT. Look at it all. Yes. Just, yes.

Platforms to kill, and cutouts

Black lipstick isn't easy to pull off, but paired with a floral bow tie becomes even more fem

Metal fringed ring? Want.

All of this. And she knows it. Werk.

The ink, the close-pin in her nose, the sheer, the collar. the makeup. And a great story to boot - this fashionista has a serious story behind her neuvo-gothic style.
