ANABEL CUERVAS

Addicted to coffee and good times, lover of animals, big and small.

When I was asked as a kid about what I wanted to be when I was older I used to say I wanted to be a writer. Other times, I preferred to be an explorer. I think it’s always been clear that I wanted to discover things, meet interesting people and talk about them, and that’s why I started So Catchy! Where Fashion Begins.

I inherited my sense of fashion from my parents and there was nothing I loved more as a child than sneaking into my relatives’ closets to touch and see all of the different clothing. My imagination would soar, there, in between all of the skirts and tops.

In this project, all of my passions and dreams come together, my job is to explore the world of fashion and to discover people with new and interesting creative talent and in turn to tell their stories.


MICHAEL PADILLA

Jack-of-all-trades, master of none, I’m up for anything that sounds more interesting than the last project.

My journey to this point has led me from my home in Michigan to the frozen fields of Rochester, NY to the streets of NYC, across the ocean, back to the Windy city for one last real Midwest winter and back to the sunny streets of southern Spain. Along the way I’ve picked up a degree in Fine Art Photography, ridden along in ambulances, worked in theatres and bars, learned another language and turned my own into a job, I’ve translated some very boring instruction manuals along the way.

My job here is mostly linguistic, partially web-focused and any other odds and ends that need fixing.


LOURDES RODRÍGUEZ

Yes, I do strongly believe in Karma, in coincidence, in the power of empathy and in perseverance, but to be clear, I am not a fan of Amélie, nor have I let my armpit hair grow in.

I like finding tendencies, but not following them. And even though I am thoroughly convinced that fashion is a waste of time and money, I still get trapped, even seduced by it all of the time.

I try to observe without touching but sometimes I slip up. I’ve discovered that my fatal attraction is creation, creativity and talent; beauty, curiosity and innovation. I’ll die happy when I’ve lived at least a few days in every city on the planet and my day to day life is really worth it, when I’ve been able to help someone.

If you’ll allow me… Don’t just sit there like an idiot, move it, do something interesting with your life! Or at least stop your whining.


CONTRIBUTORS

Lola González

An inquisitive mind and journalist who enjoys investigating the phenomenon of street style. Without even realizing it, the way you wear of an article of clothing, your behavior and the tribe you belong to define you and that’s what I study. I’m interested neighborhoods with inspirational character, small, improvised concerts, and the freedom expressed by casual looks. Fashion is fleeting and there will always be trends that can anger or will be beloved. @loleras_

I think fashion is a form of expression that starts in the street and ends wherever your imagination takes you. I’m passionate about anyone different, peculiar or unique and am a partisan of simplicity and elegance. My path has always led me to places authentic. It’s in the details that we find the difference.

I am studying a 4 year course in Fashion Design and I do freelance fashion photography as a hobby, its my passion and it fills my soul to a limit that I forget about the universe’s existence! I love traveling (walking into an unknown big city and taking photos is a must-do for me) and experiencing different and new cultures, I love anything new, be it people, music or food I looove food! Music is what fills me up, life would be so rhythmless without it. And I say do it with passion or not at all.
