Growing up, Katriel cites his parents for inspiring his interest in fashion. His dad is an R&B musician with a flair for good style and his grandmother was a whiz on the sewing machine. His parents were also excellent cooks. In high school, Katriel studied the culinary arts and had the chance to work with chefs in Las Vegas. While he loved the artistic aspect of plating food and the way that his dishes would delight customers, he ultimately decided that fashion was his true love.
Originally a sneakerhead with a self-described 90s Fresh Prince-inspired style, he now takes inspiration from Jimi Hendrix, Lenny Kravitz and the 1970s. “I’m a sneakerhead at heart,” he says, “but a boot guy on the feet.” He still has a collection of more than 50 sneakers, with prized possessions like a pair of Air Jordan 1s from 1985 (the first Jordan ever made) and Kendrick Lamar Cortez’s, but his style now is more runway. Think 1970s vintage, Western styles, square toes, loafers and boots. “Being bold with fashion,” he says, “is one of the reasons why fashion is what it is. Be different. Make something out of nothing. Make it yours… I never want to look like somebody else.” When it comes to styling or creating the perfect photograph, Katriel recommends spontaneity. “If you see anything around you, take advantage of it. Step outside of your comfort zone. Put something on that you’re not comfortable with and see people’s reaction.”
Katriel has been working at Buffalo since June of 2019. He loves the way that the job teaches you about a wide variety of styles. With such a diverse staff, as well, you not only get to see the styles – you get to see how people wear them. He also loves talking to customers and finding just the right piece for them. “Just have fun,” he says. “Of course you have to work hard and get your job done, but if you’re not having fun, then the customers won’t have fun. The rest of the staff won’t have fun.”

Katie comes with a background in Musical Theatre and a Master’s degree from Sarah Lawrence in directing, ensemble work and digital media. These days, when she’s not at Buffalo Exchange, she works as a freelance director and playwright with a focus on narratives centered around women and retelling historical narratives. She also works as Associate Artistic Director with Troy Foundry Theatre in Troy, NY. She takes inspiration from artists like Frida Kahlo, Louis Bourgeois, Caravaggio, and Gustav Klimt, as well as from sound and music. “I think theatre is the greatest collaborative art,” she says, “so things like music, fashion, visual art, digital media – they’re all essential to creating far-reaching performance art.”
Katie’s biggest theatrical influences include Samuel Beckett, Carol Churchill and Jose Rivera. Her work tends to be abstract with a goal of creating worlds that are recognizable but different from ours. “Experiencing art is not one size fits all,” she says. “It’s a very personal experience, and my goal is always to create space for each individual to find what they’re looking for.” Continuing her work amidst the pandemic has been tough, she admits, but just as Spencer Block believed, Katie knows that art is essential to our existence. “Art has survived every era of chaos, war, political turmoil and dysfunction in history,” she says. “We need art to express, communicate, protest, and process… When the opportunities aren’t presenting themselves, create your own.”
Over the past year and a half working at Buffalo, Katie has found her creativity and creative problem solving to be a huge asset to her job. “In the end,” she says, “fashion is art. It’s a way of communicating about ourselves, and even when I’m not making theatre, I feel like I’m working with art every day that I get to handle clothes.”
You Wouldn’t Guess:
I only have about 40 pieces in my closet total!
My Road to Buffalo:
I wanted a change of pace! I had been working in the wedding industry, and was looking to step into a role that was more fashion-oriented.
I’m convinced I can learn other languages through music, so I’m listening to a lot of French and German pop from the 80s.
Our store’s building has existed for about a century and is alongside several that have popped up within the last year.The city is a combination of old and new, tradition and innovation.
Random Customer Conversations I’ve Had:
What color we think describes the day, what planet we think we could survive on. A lot of weird conversations for sure, but it makes for a unique experience every day!
My Personal Style:
Andy Warhol pop art created on a yacht in the south of France, if that makes any sense.
Path to Store Manager:
I started as a Buyer, but knew I wanted to progress up the ladder. I’m grateful that Buffalo Exchange provides frequent opportunities to do so!
I was an art student for a hot second, so painting and sculpting. And I love to learn, so I like to keep up with science journals.
Skill I’ve Strengthened:
Communication.This job has helped me learn to not only communicate efficiently,but also understand that everyone communicates differently!
Recent Buffalo Find:
A bubblegum pink Acne Studios western shirt from the 90s!
I Could Spend Forever…:
Looking at a new museum exhibit!
Favorite of the Five Points of Power:
Speak the truth. Speaking openly is one of the kindest things anyone can do!
Whales, nature documentaries, trying not to kill my lemon tree.
I had only shopped at Buffalo once before deciding to apply — and I’m happy I did!
