Cathryn A. Fisfis has immersed herself in fashion and design for nearly a decade. At a very young age, Cathryn was influenced by the world of the arts by her grandmother, Katina Lazopoulos. She was told stories of the fashion industry from her cousin, Stanley Platos, who at the time was the Vice President of Sales for Valentino for North America, and then later went on to establish his own brand, Stanley Platos. She was inspired by his classic feminine designs and attention to detail.

Cathryn graduated from the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, New York City, with a BBA in Fashion Merchandising in 2006; after studying Fashion Design at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco. During her years at LIM, she interned at Barney’s New York, as a Style Intern. While at Barney’s, she assisted stylists with jobs for soap operas, sitcoms, movies, celebrities and socialites. This was a fantastic plunge into the world of styling. In 2006 Cathryn worked for the Donna Karan Collection, as a Design Intern in the DKNY Footwear and Accessories Design Studio. She was thrust into the world of high fashion and loved every minute of it. It was during her time spent at Donna Karan that she realized her passion and love of accessories could lead to more than just a hobby. While living in Manhattan, Cathryn also worked for the Jenny Yoo Collection and got her first taste of the bridal market. She fell in love. She was amazed at the impact her ideas had on the brides and how much they appreciated her opinions. She loved being a part of something so special and life changing.

A position in Greenwich, CT at Saks Fifth Avenue became the next stepping stone in her career. As the Designer Department Assistant Manager, Cathryn was known for her creative merchandising, attention to detail and all around friendly demeanor that the clients loved. After two years at Saks, Cathryn took a job at Van Cleve – The Wedding Pavilion in Paoli, PA as the new Bridal Director. Cathryn was able to take the small boutique from an empty building to a full blown bridal shop within eight months. An accomplishment she is extremely proud of.

In 2010, Cathryn officially began her career in styling. She took her experiences from her time at Barney’s New York as well as thirteen years of retail and brought style to the everyday modern woman. As a Chester County & Central Pennsylvania based stylist, she was able to reach clients in Philadelphia, New York and Wilmington, DE.

Cathryn A. Fisfis soft launched her own collection of diaper bags and handbags in November of 2013. Recognizing a need in the market after having her son, Nicholas Jr. in 2012 and searching high and low for a fashionable yet functional diaper bag, she decided to create one; several actually. She believes that women shouldn’t have to give up their style when they become a Mom. They should be able to carry an “It Bag” that also fits all of their baby’s needs inside. Watch for her men’s collection, coming soon!

Fueled by her infinite love of fashion, Cathryn continues to dive into new projects. Whether dressing her clients, styling bridal parties, designing handbags and accessories or creating her brand, Cathryn remains unstoppable in the fashion world!
