Catherine Smith, Founder & Fashion Director at Plan de Ville
"I’m so lucky to have worked for Keija Minor at Brides Magazine. She truly leads by example, and the best advice I’ve received from her is to 'be brave enough to live the life you truly want.’ Keija left a career in law to pursue her dream of being a magazine editor, and she never looked back. Her leadership has shown me that the most important thing you can do for yourself is to identify your dreams, make a plan to reach them, and remain committed to your path.”
After her time at @BRIDES, Catherine launched her own company, @plandeville, a content and commerce destination dedicated to emerging luxury fashion designers. Catherine was recently awarded the Rising Star Award in Retail from the Fashion Group International.
