Catherine Kung founded The Southern Gloss as a collective way to pull together her creative interests in the world of fashion, travel and design. Being raised on a small farm in the midwest and developing a love for travel has influenced her eclectic Southern approach to style without setting aside practicality. She has been a stylist to numerous celebrities, editorial and advertising photoshoots, and has spent many years modeling for commercial and fashion campaigns.

The latest addition to The Southern Gloss has been a curated jewelry collection of hand selected pieces, some handmade by Catherine, that are now available for purchase!

Her goal is to inspire others to see the potential in the world around them, to appreciate the beauty in themselves, and to think outside the box in order to accomplish their goals affordably. But more than anything, her philosophy is to encourage empowerment through creativity and style. 

She currently lives in charming Old Louisville Kentucky along with her husband Andrew and fur-child Jenni.

“I believe that every single human has the right feel beautiful. A simple way to make this world a better place is to empower all those around you by helping them to see the beauty in themselves. This creates a confidence that becomes the most attractive and inspiring thing a person can wear.”

There are many ways to work with Catherine to help expand your outreach! Examples include Sponsorships, Partnerships, Product Reviews and Collaborations. Contact us to find out more!
