Katya Moorman is an entrepreneur, content creator and photographer who thrives in the digital space. From 2008 – 2014 she envisioned and developed StyleDefined NYC, a blog that grew into a website which according to Italian Vogue “developed a cult following by New York’s riotous underground tribe” with its unique mix of NYC nightlife, fashion and style. Over this period, as a creative director/influencer she collaborated with several brands creating visually striking “social first” campaigns including SONY, MAC Cosmetics, Diane von Furstenberg and Barneys New York.
After selling StyleDefined NYC in 2014 she was offered the position of Director of Communications for Manufacture New York, an incubator in Sunset Park with a mission to mentor and train the next generation of U.S. apparel designers on tech and sustainability.
She is currently the Creative Director of Digital Strategy at TILL: bioFASHIONtech and the co-founder of No Kill Magazine.
Her personal design and photography work has been exhibited at SONY Plaza, Times Square, The Arsenal Gallery, Brooklyn and the Keller Gallery in San Diego California. Her interactive piece on life post 9/11 is part of the permanent collection of the 9/11 Memorial Museum. She holds a MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and has been on faculty at Pratt in the Graduate Communication Design program since 2008.
