Catherine Holstein

I am the shy one...okay not really since I am the one always showing my face on the internet or strutting down the runway in our designs..People are always sorta confused when it comes to the three of us..at one point people actually started calling us triplets...i guess we've spent so much time together that we have started to look alike... so I guess it is fair that I should introduce us as individuals even though yeah we are a unit...
Doreen- She is the oldest and my sister...she likes to think of herself as a photographer..believes that no one else can take pictures like her..we all know that that isnt true but we are like watever...let her humor herself...ok its a lie...as an amateur photographer (being that she has never taken any classes) she does a good job..
Oseyi- My oseyi...we've known each other since high school...and I can't believe she came to America..I thought she was going to go to some school in England..neway..she is the one that does most of the makeup during the shoots...
ok..any better? I thought not...I'm terrible at bloggin...I leave that to the other 2 parts of cranberry...I will be praying for u guys to understand this incoherent mess I am trying to push across...and before u say anything I apologise for my actions.....
Yeah so I am obsessed..wait..there's no I in team abi? ok..WE are obsessed with teenVOGUE....yeah we have all the issues of teenvogue and I mean all...I used to be a broke student(I mean I'm still broke) but I still have to have a copy of teenvogue lying in my house...ok so I dont suscribe to the magazine...I am bad with commitments....which is why I dont understand the relationship with cranberry...it is the longest most fulfilling relationship I have ever had....sure we have had our ups and downs..sometimes I only have to think of the color of cranberry and I get all frustrated but other times it makes me blush....*sigh.*.....Anywayyy....back to teenvogue...was reading it some day and came across this absolutely fab chica that I am SO GREEENNNN for...like I dont understand why some ppl have it better than others....yeah her name is Catherine Holstein....she went to Parsons and is like wat 22 and ppl like mischa barton have already started wearing her clothes...like ARRRRRGGGHHHHHHH...wat do we have to do to get to where she is???????neway I am including a page from teenvogue about her wonderful road to success...yeah i read it and wept already...

Hi girls,
I love ur ambition. Goodluck in all that u do. Rome was not built in a day.Love the work u are doing.

That book is very good and helpful.. Its a good guideline and takes you through the necessary steps. If I were to write a book I would write it the same way as I/many designers have gone through most of those experiences. It is VERY helpful because its about the business of FASHION beacuse creativity is not enough to make you successful. You have to have a plan for your creativity and manage it well. Have a point of view and stay consistent. I wish you ladies all the best of luck and that book is a treasure.

Another book to add to my list,but you guys should check fashion babylon out if u havent already, its quite funny, just one designers perspective on life as a fashion designer and trying to break into markets....good read!!

Lol... well done "shy one". It was not at all difficult to read. Catherine what's her name's mum could be best friends with Mischa's mum or stylist or hair-dresser or dog-walker.

You'll get there.. your stuff is waaaaay better than a lot of other amateur stuff out there. I didn't know about your label till I stumbled across your blog in the most random way possible. I did initially think "here we go again" but the pictures were so so soooo great! If I can scrape some money together soon, I might even ask for something to be Fed-Ex'd to London, if you do international deliveries that is xxxx
