I admire women who have identified a style that works for them, and that’ll safely see them through their 20s, 30s, right up to their 40s and beyond. There are a number who understand that it’s not what you wear, but how you wear it and what works for their body shape. Retailer Katherine Cheng is easily one of them—one of the most stylish women in the metro.
Katherine is the owner of women’s wear line, K & Company. “I have always been interested in fashion. [I] dabbled my first collection in the bazaars 15 years ago and finally opened my store 10 years ago,” she shares.
Now, she shops for work wear at her sample room! Moreover, her stores are a reflection of her own closet (a good sign as she was once on Preview's Best Dressed List)—keeping things clean while nailing down the details; polished femininity with edge. If there was a need to define the ineffable definition of classiness, perhaps, Katherine comes closest.
