Hi, I`m Cat Angelina Gasparri. I started this blog and webpage
as a platform to exchange fashion & beauty ideas but most importantly
to reach people whom I can help to feel more beautiful and self-confident.
Fashion is my passion.
To me it is synonymous with having lots of fun, experimenting with different
styles & eras and the possibility to express myself in a creative and personal way.
With a lot of imagination I’ve always designed and made dancing costumes
and ball gowns since I was a little girl. I feel especially inspired by the era
of “old Hollywood” and love the late 19th century fashion, feminine and elegant.
Since I dress according to my mood rather than the current fashion trends
I am quite a chameleon.
At 19 instead of finishing my medicine studies, I jumped on a plane and took off
for my first modeling contract in Asia which was supposed to last only 3 mouths
but turned into 12 years of trotting the globe fromTokyo, Taipei, Osaka,
Paris, London, Seoul, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Delhi, etc. and back to Europe.
While modeling is a wonderful profession that gives the opportunity to meet
very interesting people from all walks of life, travel extensively and make
a good living, I felt I was missing an outlet for my creativity.
So I began to apply all the useful tricks and tips I picked up along the way
of working with hundreds of different makeup artists and started to work
in that profession as well. I love the way you can completely change a look with
a couple of well positioned and skillfully applied stokes of a brush, slightly dipped in color!
With a lot of enthusiasm I studied fashion design (focusing on bridal and evening wear)
in London and started to style people surrounding me by advising them
on what suits & fits them and passing on everything I learned
while spending half my life time in the world of fashion.
My next destination was a 5 year stay in India, where I was very lucky
(besides many other things) to acquire a vast knowledge of fabrics,
hand print techniques and embroidery and fell in love with color again
after having been a minimalist who only wore plain and simple,
unembellished black for a while.
For the time being I`m back in Europe and am currently living between Vienna and Lugano.
