meet KATE

Kate O'Dowd's background is in magazine publishing. Following an MA in Fashion Journalism, at London College of Fashion, she joined the team at IMAGE Magazine, where she honed her skills as a feature writer and trend commentator, before taking on the challenge to conceive and launch a brand new wedding title, BASH... a special little magazine that industry acclaim and a fancy Magazine of the Year award, in its first year.

Alongside writing and editing, Kate has worked as a fashion and book stylist and has appeared, on numerous occasions, as a trend and wedding expert on television and in national newspapers, as well as hosting all of BASH's many events.

Kate thinks of each event as an issue of a magazine, with cover stars (that’s you) and tag lines; substantial content and the frivolous, too; and with each line written to make the reader (also you) happy.

She lives for the look in a client's eye as she describes to them what they want, but can't articulate – it's almost as good as watching that poor groom try not to cry, as his beloved sweeps up the aisle... with all his mates watching.
