Faux Fur-cuffed Jacket | Creation Despite


My name is Caitlyn Rose— I’m the founder and editor in chief of Creation Despite and I live in lovely Los Angeles, CA.

I’ve always been just a little preoccupied with fashion… noting what worked and what didn’t, competitive price points, and how different trends translated on me, a dynamic woman in real life.

Out of my struggles with skin problems evolved a profound appreciation for makeup with a focus on natural beauty, organic skincare, and vegan beauty products.

Furthermore, the context of my story as a millennial is marked by the technological revolution and all of the creativity it’s fostered. Technology has ushered a new era of entrepreneurship and with it, a new place to innovate in fashiontech & beautytech.

Although I’ve worked in various digital marketing roles for the past several years,  my deliberate writing style and eye for high-quality creative have remained constant.

During my career, I’ve been exposed to a variety of dress codes from the casual tech start-up to the more formal environments of an international corporation. I also did my fair share of creative production on fashion and beauty photoshoots where I came to learn how impactful personal presentation could be.

On a daily basis, I’m immersed in fashion, beauty, technology, writing for LendGenius, consulting for small business owners, and running this blog.

Other times, I’m drinking too much coffee, eating good food with good people, binge-watching TV shows, practicing photography, doing yoga, and planning my next big project.

In the next few years, you can expect me to bring a mobile app and an off-fashion clothing brand to market. Long term, I intend to open a non-profit animal rescue and to offer a full scholarship for women in technology.
