you're right softgrey...it's strange...there are so many articles and little pictures online about how she is a style icon....Q & A's about her favourite things, people, places etc....and none of her work....i cant find any print work....maybe she mainly styles celebrities and the occasional runway show?...i think she picked the vera wang gown for michelle williams at the oscars....

My Town: NYC
Stylist Kate Young Finds Quiet Charm Amid the Chaos



September 08, 2006

With the arrival of Fashion Week today, New York will inevitably become a hyperkinetic whirlwind of finery and flash, fueled by canapes and mini-bottles of Moet. Thankfully, there are people like Kate Young, the yin to the over-indulgent yang. “I’m drawn to things that are organic, industrial, slightly minimal,” says the stylist and contributing fashion editor for both Teen Vogue and Interview. “As well as things that are antique, that have a patina to them.”
Her stripped-down, story-to-tell elegance is evident in the way she dresses her clients -- Jennifer Connelly, Hilary Swank, Michelle Williams, to name a few -- as well as in her designs, a collection of Victorian mourning jewelry and objets d’art such as compasses, corkscrews, and hand-crocheted shawls. “I’m inspired by my friends,” she explains. “And the New York lifestyle – spending days going to galleries, sitting in cafes...” Here, the Pennsylvania native, who’s called New York home for the past nine years, offers her favorite places in the city to browse fiction, sit back with tea, and stare at the wallpaper. In her own words:
Favorite Café:
Cafe Sabarsky in the Neue Galerie. It’s my favorite room in NYC.
Favorite Shop:
R store in Tribeca. It's gorgeous and industrial and minimal. They have the best jeans, t-shirts and cashmere that don't feel at all mass-produced. The men’s suits are really gorgeous. I'm dying for a couple of the mercury glass handblown pendant lamps... and, of course, I love my own jewelry collection, which is sold there...
Favorite Lingerie Store:
Jean Yu. It’s also my favorite store for a dress or a gown. Couture panties are the most extravagant thing ever, but everything Jean does is precise and in perfect taste.
Favorite Jewelry Shop:
Tenthousandthings. I love the feel of the store -- organic and modern. The guys who own it are the best -- sweet and hilarious and unbelievably talented. Their jewelry is beautiful and the selection of other jewelers’ stuff is amazing.
Favorite Record Store:
Other Music. It has the best selection of CD's, plus really great staff picks.
Favorite Strange Shop:
De Vera. I want everything.
Favorite Antique Shop:
Cafiero Select. David Cafiero's shop that is never open!!!! I love him and his taste. It changes all the time, but he has the greatest eye.
Favorite Lunch Place:
BG at Bergdorf Goodman. The wallpaper makes me feel like a lady and the people-watching is incredible.
Favorite Place for Tea:
The Adore. It’s one of my favorite places in the city. It’s a little café on the 2nd floor. The storefront sells teas and madeleines, then you can go upstairs for lunch and have little sandwiches.
Favorite Takeout:
Taim. They have falafel that is sooooo good, and ginger-mint lemonade.
Favorite Bookstore:
Three Lives. There’s such a good selection of fiction. It’s a charming, beautiful shop with a great, great staff-picks table.
Favorite Beauty
FragranceCandle Store: Aedes de Venustas. They have decadent, rich Goth decor and rare, luxurious brands and fragrances.

Party Adventures - Fashion Week Daily - 1:05 pm
Derek’s Gyspy Girl


A moment with Kate Young, stylist of Derek Lam’s show:

So what was your inspiration?

The inspiration was Guy Bourdin’s photographs for French Vogue in the 1970’s. There was a slight gypsy feeling, so there was a little bit of volume and color. Then there was a whole section of eveningwear in the end that was based on lingerie that was also inspired by Guy Bourdin. We wanted her to be like a fun girl, like a girl you wanted to go dancing with. And I think what’s appealing about those photographs and that era was that the women wore fashion, you know, they were aligned with designers and they bought the collection every season but they also like partied in it and went and danced in it, got laid in it. So we wanted it to look that way, like women can have a lot of fun and be sexy in these clothes but they were really still very well made and beautiful pieces.
Have you worked with Derek on past collections?
Yeah, on every one since the first one.

And how do you think his style has evolved?

I think that Derek is known for his dresses and his pretty, feminine pieces, and last season was a little bit of departure from that and this season is sort of a combination. It’s an evolution. She’s a feminine pretty woman but there’s definitely still that harder edge from last season. So I think that Derek is friends with a lot of women and he loves women and the women who he’s friends with tend to be successful, strong New York kind of girls so you see some of that.
You’ve been very busy this week.
Yeah, this is the last of the four shows I styled. I also did Jenni Kayne, Yigal Azrouël, and Nicole Miller.

Any tips on getting through Fashion Week?

Oh, I don’t know. Vitamins!

While I absolutely love Yigal Azrouel's most recent effort...
I can't say I'm too fond of her 'style'..
I think she is fashionable as she has many nice pieces..
But her personality isn't shining through for me...
The clothing doesn't hang elegantly..
nor does it look like a second skin...

Forgive me for being out of the loop, but she is no longer with Amanda Moore I guess is she? When did they break up? I had no idea she was married, nor to a man either.

if you read amanda's thread you'll quickly get a very good idea....amanda and kate were in a relationship, i think for a few years, i dont know....they broke up, kate started dating a man...i'm assuming the man she is now married to (or perhaps not?)....and that's that....now she's married with a child...as always there is plenty of gossip and plenty of rumours....i don't know what's true and what isn't...i don't care, quite frankly...
