Hockey in Harlem Fundraiser with Designer Catherine Soderberg
YouTube l https://www.youtube.com/

Check out Cathy Soderberg (newly my cousin!) and her work to raise money for Hockey in Harlem, which is fund raising event to allow underpriviledged children in Harlem to play ice hockey. I find it incredible how she responds to the form of the helmets in a way that is both strong, protective and delicate. I also love how the arts can contribute in so many ways to so many different interests!

David Trefler Same here! How common is the transition from architecture to fashion? Does she have a boutique or does she work for a label? Where was this interview taking place?

Catherine Soderberg

Catherine Soderberg Hi Everyone! Thank you Emma for forwarding me this link. Yes, my background is in architecture. I did my bachelors degree at Pratt and then went on to get my masters degree as well. I have always had a passion for fashion too so it was exciting when I was given this opportunity to participate in a fashion competition. This interview was taken place during the fashion competition at the beginning of September. I feel there is a commonality between both fields. The body is a 3D moving object, and in architecture, one is always trying to design spaces for the body. My work can be seen on my website at www.socadesignstudio.com. I am currently working on starting my own design studio. All the best to you all! Never forget to believe in yourselves. You can do anything you set your mind to. xo

Vidushi Sharma Love your comment about how architecture and fashion are so connected. I think that is something people rarely realize. One of our hopes for this website is to help people realize how many disciplines are, at their core, more related than meets the eye.
