Meet the Designer

"I believe that Beauty is our birthright.  Let's take it back."
           - Ann Andrews, Ann Catherine Design 

As a designer who works one-on-one with clients, it did not take long to learn that most women - no matter their age, shape or size - walk around with a feeling of "not measuring up". It's no wonder. Fashion, TV, Magazines, Movies, Advertisements -- we're besieged with images of what we should look like.  

Though we may not be fully aware, we internalize these unattainable and often distorted standards (and it doesn't feel good). So began a deep, personal inquiry into the meaning of beauty. What is it? Is beauty important? Why do we so often feel at odds with ourselves?

True beauty has an unmistakable resonance and is far more than something we see.  It's something we feel, something we experience. In fact, I believe Beauty is Essential to our Well-Being.  When we are not in alignment with authentic self-expression we feel it and others sense it.

The clothing you wear is something you have control over; it's a piece of the well-being puzzle. So, in addition to designing, I assist customers in reframing their negative self-image; offering Wardrobe Transformations and Style Consulting to help them find ways to express their own vision of beauty vis-a-vis the clothes they wear. 

I assist women in reclaiming beauty - on their terms - apart from the pressures of fashion and our culture's impossible beauty standards.

The result?  Your ideal self-expression, well-being and timeless beauty.
