{ Introducing Katie Rodgers of 'Paper Fashion' }

Our Guest Blogger this week is the very talented and Lovely Katie Rodgers. You might know her from her beautiful blog Paper Fashion.  
We asked Katie to show us how she uses her Fashionflat Sketchpad, and to tell us a bit about being a Designer for Reebok, a fabulous Fashion Illustrator and a really cool person. Over to you Katie Girl~

My name is Kathryn Elyse Rodgers, and I am a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University. I have a BFA in Industrial Design, but after pursuing fashion and apparel on my own, I realized it was my true passion! I now have a career in Apparel Design, and currently work in Boston for Reebok.

As an Apparel Designer, sketching is a huge part of my day. I spend a lot of time coming up with quick apparel design ideas. As much as I'd like to spend hours on each illustration, (as I do for my blog!) I don't really have that kind of time at work. That's what's great about Hokey Croquis sketchpads- the croquis is already there, so I can just sketch out the ideas quickly. Usually I spend a lot of time redrawing croquis, so it's a nice change!

Every since I started working full time, I realized I needed some sort of outside outlet. I decided to start an illustration blog, since illustration is a part of design which I love. My blog, PaperFashion, really keeps me going more than anything else…and the thought that people enjoy seeing my work really makes me happy.


 Thanks so much for sharing Katie, next time we're all coming to visit you in the Reebok Studio :)
