Kat Griffin is the founder, publisher, and editor-in-chief of Corporette. She had to learn fashion truths the hard way: by showing up to her conservative Wall Street office in outfits that seemed perfectly fashionable and normal when she left the house, only to realize upon arrival to the office that they were either horribly frumpy or incredibly inappropriate. She cursed the magazine editors who told her that work-appropriate wear consisted of mini-skirts and gladiator sandals, and wondered why no one wrote about beautiful suits. In May 2008, she finally decided to take matters into her own hands and start Corporette. She’s been enjoying the dialog immensely and is happy to report that it has been over 1000 days since she last wore fishnets to the office. (You can read Kat’s “Introductions” post, along with some introductory videos, here.)
Kat grew up in Ohio and moved to New York to work as a writer and magazine editor (Family Circle magazine, Time’s college guide, and Sportswear International) after getting her BS from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. After working for a few years, she took a three-year detour to D.C., where she received her JD with honors from Georgetown University Law Center, and then returned to New York to work at Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, where she worked as a litigator for six years; she then worked as a staff attorney at the Media Law Resource Center for two years. Her husband, two sons, and her blog babies (Corporette and CorporetteMoms) keep her busy.
