In 2011, Polk was invited to be the New York Fashion Editor of FIASCO Magazine and assigned her own monthly feature, 'Style Mode'. In less than a year Polk has styled 3 cover stories for Fiasco and this successful collaboration continues.
She established 'Katharine Polk Stylist' in 2009 an ongoing fashion styling company specializing in editorials, music videos, and high-end celebrity clientele. Katharine enjoys the opportunity to work with top American and European photographers, models, actors, musicians and magazines, leaving her distinctive stamp on everything she does.
Originally from Malibu, California, Polk graduated from FIDM in Los Angeles with a fashion design degree and moved to New York City to begin her career as the design assistant and in-house stylist for Badgley Mischka Couture. Her designs and styling work graced the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week runways for six consecutive seasons (from 2007-2009) and appeared nationally in WWD, Glamour, InStyle, Elle, and Vogue as well as on the cover of Brides Magazine.
Polk also dedicates her time and passion to her role as an U.S. spokesperson for the international non-profit organization, Designers Against Aids. She lives in New York City with Jonesy - her supermodel English bulldog.
