GoKateShoot for Washingtonian: Zoe Pollock


Several weeks ago, I photographed Zoe Pollock for my column in Washingtonian Magazine. The lovely Miss Z is an intense thrift addict who is one of the style minds behind Trash Cat Collective, which recently had a wildly successful pop-up and Fashion/Design Nerd Nite (at which I spoke). I loved shooting with Zoe though, and we had THE BEST time working together! I arrived at her apartment half an hour early (entirely by accident...those of you who know me know that I am always a slightly flustered, "fashionable" 10 minutes late for everything!). She brought a bottle of champagne and a friend and then suddenly we had a  tiny festive party! We had a ball photographing her unique vintage pieces that are all filled with wonderful stories that she is more than happy to tell. 

I love when old becomes new again; her pajama top-turned blouse is completely on trend with the full pajama suits that brave fashionistas in Paris have been rocking for a couple of seasons now. Plus her apartment is DIVINE!





And she collects really cool antique industrial metal. Neat!
