REFINERY29'S 2ND ANNUAL STYLE BLOGGER

The Grand Prize Winner and recipient of a Refinery29 contributing gig at our NYC offices and $1,000 to spend on the clothes it takes to look the part is Ann Kim of Andyheart! Ann impressed Editor-in-Chief Christene Barberich and Creative Director Piera Gelardi with her sense of style, resourcefulness, eye for design, and prose style. Ann, why don't you step up to the mic and say a few words about where you got your sense of style and what blogging and winning this contest mean to you?
"Thanks! I'm a proud L.A. native and inherited my sense of style from my father, an architect who always got the details right. (Thanks, Dad!) I went on to cultivate my love of fashion at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and as a senior designer at Ferroconcrete, a branding firm, where I work on personifying brands like Pinkberry, TBS, and Hustler Toys.
"Blogging is a full-time job on top of my design career. Wherever I go, whatever I do, I devote time into my blog, Andyheart. It's my love letter to style.
"Being chosen in the top five was amazing enough. It meant that someone out there really appreciated what I was putting out into the world. Winning the contest is a great privilege, especially since blogging is so new to me. Without my blog, I wouldn't have this amazing opportunity to further develop my passions. Thank you, Refinery29!"  Read more on Refinery29
