Kate O'Dowd

After an MA in Fashion Journalism at London College of Fashion, Kate joined the team at IMAGE Magazine in 2007, progressing from the position of Editorial Assistant to Assistant Editor, before moving on to helm the launch of our newest title BASH, in 2013. In its 18 months, Kate took brand BASH from strength to strength, gathering a dedicated following, nabbing a Magazine of the Year gong at the Irish Magazine Awards, and growing its successful BASHprep wedding workshop series. Now, BASH has morphed into IMAGE Bride, celebrating the bond with its sister titles and Kate is busy, as ever, dreaming up wonderful ways to do weddings.
