We had the good fortune of connecting with Catherine Fulmer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Catherine, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
The creative process from start to finish makes me incredibly happy and full of life. That sums up my professional life in a nut shell. Personally – nothing makes me more happy than to see my 6 year old grow up to be an incredibly caring and wonderful little human
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been designing high end, ready to wear, women’s clothing for over 10 years. THings first started taking off for me in NYC. I’m really proud that I have been able to stay true to my craft and stay inspired. I’ve always felt that my connection with my surroundings has always been a true tell of my personality and spirit. It’s been an interesting road for sure, but absolutely rewarding. The most satisfying feelings really come from the personal relationships I have with my friends and clients. My collections empower women to feel great about themselves. The comfort and style really bring out the best in them, and I’m so honored to be able to create and share that experience.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Los Angeles is one of the best places to play, and you definitely need a full week to get everything in. I would start the journey with a personal airport pick up and head straight to Kreation in Venice Beach. Got to start the morning with an organic green juice or smoothie. From there we would stroll the streets of Abbott Kinney, pop into Satine Boutique and stroll the blvd. Next stop would have to be Gjelina. Hands down one of the best restaurants in all of Southern CA. If the wait is too long, you can always get Gjelina togo, but we have to wait, and definitely indulge in one of their incredible craft cocktails. Next stop would be a beach day at Topanga Canyon Beach. It’s a quick drive up PCH to get to Topanga. Never overcrowded, and the locals are all very “granola” and green friendly. After taking in a breathless sunset, we would then head up Topanga Canyon blvd to Inn of the Seventh Ray. The setting is by far one of the most romantic and stunning layouts you have ever seen. Nestled creekside in the middle of the mountains with an amazing wine and food menu. I would then most likely to do this on repeat for days, as these spots never get old. We would venture over to Laurel Canyon and dine al fresco at Pace. If you haven’t had their vegan pureé , it is to die for. You can also pay homage to Jim Morrison’s house across the street, and even venture up into the hills and crash a Houdini House party! As I currently live in Silver Lake, we would obviously spend mornings on the reservoir. The 1.5 mile walking track wraps around the lake quite nicely. Never too crowded and you get an amazing breeze between the hills. We would have to take in a pilates class at Motivate, before heading to El Condor for Happy Hour margaritas. These days I’ve been spending time in Topanga and Malibu. Not feeling the eastside as much anymore after this apocalyptic year to be honest.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Gratitude to all the amazing selfless health workers and frontliners that have put themselves on the line this apocalyptic year we’re having….
