Vibrant Conversation: Getting to Know Kate Parfet Through a Magnificent Color Palette

Kate Parfet is magnificent and understated at once. With delicate features that create the most beautiful canvas, whether that is a face full of nude hues or rich color, she eludes a strong yet quietly stated sense of self. Her talents are eclectic – from her elevated sense of style to her deep well of intellect, she is equal parts stunning and dynamic. This dynamism makes Kate an interesting subject and a beautiful study. Intrigued by her casual cool aesthetic that contrasts beautifully in this editorial shot by Carly Foulkes, I asked her a few questions on her dreams, aspirations, and present day musings. Dive in and get to know Ms. Parfet below.
