Katharina Lina is a beauty and culture editor based in London.
Currently the digital editor of Infringe Magazine she oversees all copy, content management, social media, and communications.
Previously Katharina worked as editorial assistant at King Kong Magazine between 2016 and 2018 while simultaneously completing her BA Fashion Journalism degree at Central Saint Martins.
Capturing the essence of her personal interests, Katharina’s graduate project gave birth to Dragon Lady, a printed alternative beauty publication focusing on queer and POC perspectives.
Dragon Lady is a print beauty publication for those who don’t see themselves represented in mainstream media. A space for the marginalised, the outsiders, the eccentric nonconformists.
Eurocentric beauty ideals are constantly slapped in our faces, even in parts of the world where achieving these ideals is unrealistic. Skin-bleaching, eyelid surgeries, and models of colour out of jobs are merely physical symptoms of a singular white beauty ideal.
This magazine provides inclusive representation, self-aware reflection on popular culture, and an exploration into how beauty and makeup can shape identities, without an exclusive or commercial agenda.
The author of several iconic hair moments in recent pop culture, on her Instagram show, not always having a method, and elitist structures in the industry
