Kate is available for work
I always aspired to be a star in the womenswear world working as a stylist; however, unbeknownst to me I would become utterly captivated by men’s tailoring during an internship at Thomas Pink. Not only was I drawn to the product, I felt the menswear market had a much different attitude and energy and I felt a shift in my own style and aesthetic. After that pivotal time, I immersed myself by interning, freelancing and landed a coveted position at Details Magazine working with my current mentor, Eugene Tong.
My career at Details began as an intern with the Fashion Department, followed by a position as a Fashion Associate, which then led to a Market Editor role over the course of 4 years. During my days in the fashion closet, I had the privilege to be surrounded by the most prominent menswear labels as well as more niche brands from Scandinavia and Taiwan. I was ravenous to learn more about the clothing but also about the trends, and how these elements created beautiful visual elements during each run through with our Creative Director, Editor-in-Chief, and fashion team. During my time at Details, Eugene Tong and I styled and co-produced lookbook photoshoots, fashion shows, and campaigns. We continue to broaden our client base, and I look at each project as chance to share my creative thoughts and execute it at the best of my ability.
After the closure of Details Magazine in 2015, I took an unexpected leap into full-time freelance styling and experimental production which helped me build strong relationships with such innovators as Ronnie Fieg (Kith), John Elliott, and Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne (Public School). Leveraging the connections, I made in publishing and styling I joined the men’s sales team at Capsule Show managing over 1,800 brands. Although daunted to accept a sales role, working at Capsule enabled me to continue to research new brands and give them a platform in the American market to thrive and represent the landscape of the current market. While I was in a sales position, I had the ability to produce 8 fashion presentations during the Spring/Summer 2018 Capsule Tradeshow. I executed sponsorships, resources for each brand, scheduling, budgets, and set turnover in between each presentation. This is when I realized creative production is my main focus for my career.
After Capsule was sold in 2018, I decided to start my own project management and consulting business, Kate Cervini LLC. Through starting this company I have had the opportunity to work on various projects with leading companies. The projects range from art performances at Art Basel, Miami to fashion fairs in Copenhagen. My most recent experience has been working on various events and projects with clients such as: Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF), Plus Plus Agency, SO MAJOR, The Business of Fashion, and Vanessa Beecroft. I value the opportunity I have with my clients and execute each project and event to its fullest potential.
My experience has allowed me to understand and gain knowledge as a project manager from fashion shows and photoshoots, marketing campaigns, collaborations and partnerships, client management, market knowledge, and events. I continuously look at past and present projects to think outside the box and to bring fresh ideas to the new opportunities presented to me.
