Cathy Mallebranche was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and is a New York-based fashion stylist and a personal shopper. From early as her teen years she always had a different fashion sense and style apart from the average teenager. Cathy started off designing her own clothes, as well as hiring her own tailor to create one-of-a-kind outfits. It wasn’t long before that she started getting requests from friends, family and even strangers who would occasionally approach her on the street and ask her to create and design outfits for them as well. This essentially boosted Cathy’s confidence and she later made the decision that would ultimately change her life.
With an interest in all things fashion, arts and entertainment, she walked away from the corporate world, and her pursuit of a Degree in Psychology to pursue her love and sense for fashion. In 2002, with no official background in the fashion industry, she took hold of her own destiny and picked up the phone and made calls to over 100 stylists and simply asked to be given an opportunity to demonstrate her willingness and show that she was indeed ready to be a fashion stylist assistant. The opportunity was granted by some of New York’s top celebrity stylists at the time, and opened many doors to Cathy’s profound venture.
Since then, Cathy has moved on to make a name for herself within the industry. As a freelance fashion stylist, she has worked with some of entertainment’s biggest stars, such as Kelly Rowland, Nick Cannon, Pharrell Williams, Jonas Brothers and a host of others. In addition to working with publications such as Spanish Harper’s Bazaar, Trace Magazine, Calabasas Magazine, Vibe Magazine, Wired Magazine, and The New Yorker, just to name a few. Some of her clients consists of Macy’s Federated, Conde Nast, Sony Records, and E! Entertainment. Cathy has lent her creativity to all avenues within the fashion industry, including, but not limited to, Broadway Plays, National Commercials, Advertisements, Television, Runway Shows, E-Commerce and Catalogs among many more projects.
The undying passion for fashion that Cathy possesses enables her to continue looking to work on new and exciting projects that stimulates her creative mind and ignites her enthusiasm to keep pushing to take her fashion sense to the next level.
