Who’s behind Paper Fashion?
I am, Kathryn Elyse Rodgers (also known as Katie).

This morning, you woke up:
Got some coffee, answered emails, got ready for work.

How would you describe your style?
My style is very simple... I wear alot of neutrals and black with a pop color here and there. I don't like to think too much about what I am going to wear. My typical outfit is jeans/leggings with a long tank and a drapey vest with funky jewelry.

Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?
Probably people I don't know... blogs, people walking on the street with great style. Old professors (both fashion/ art/ and non art) have also influenced me alot.

Biggest achievement:
Being able to do what I love to do every day of my life... 

I’m obsessed with…
Blogs, fashion, apple juice, bacon, coffee

A phrase you use far more often:

New York City

A book:
