Why Catherine Bachelier?
As a fashion expert Catherine teaches fashion empowerment workshops in the US and Europe and teaches us that style is much more than a fashionable outfit. Style is poise and confidence and is a profound reflection of who we are.
Catherine hails originally from Nogales, a small town on the border of Arizona and Mexico. As one of nine children, and born as a triplet, Catherine was destined to lead a unique life yet remain connected very closely to others. It makes sense that Catherine’s career trajectory started, and remains, in jobs involving helping others. With a B.S. degree from the University of Arizona, she spent two years nursing in OB/GYN followed by two years in pediatrics. She enjoyed an additional four years as a project manager for state funded health programs within the nursing, program development and management fields.
Catherine eventually left her beloved field of nursing to be a full-time mother and to pursue her love of weddings and fashion.
Since 2000, Catherine’s wedding business had grown exponentially. She’d made a mark for herself by adapting to wedding clients’ various needs, maintaining excellent relations with top vendors in Southern California, and contributing to the field with her expertise in print media.
In 2011, Catherine embarked upon a major change within her business model. With her ¡Si se puede! approach to life, Catherine’s venture, and what is now CB StyleMaker, came to fruition. Here, she combines her main interests into an all-encompassing career that weaves her expertise as an author, personal stylist, professional wedding planner and internationally sought after expert and speaker. Catherine is an author and contributor for fashion and wedding publications and has been featured in top magazines such as Real Simple, Martha Stewart Weddings, Business Insider and Reader’s Digest.
A genuine force of nature, Catherine inspires those around her to reevaluate themselves in a positive way, resulting in true fashion empowerment. Using a personalized approach to presenting the best version of you, Catherine’s guidance is effective, easily and immediately incorporated, and has a tremendously positive impact both internally and externally.
