Favorite Big Fashion Designers


We're in the middle of New York Fashion Week so thought it a good time to chat about favorite style influences.

I am mainly a street style fan - I love seeing the individual looks a person comes up with, and they do not have to be created from name-brand pieces. The Sartorialist will always be #1. It's become quite crowded on the streets of style, with a lot of "meh" or sponsored or fame-hungry looks. A lot of people are looking the same as the next. So let's keep a sharp eye for true style makers and people who feel style at their core.

That being said, I do totally love the aesthetic of some popular design houses. At this point in my life, I'm not in the income bracket to shop with them, but I do appreciate their Instagram accounts and garner inspiration from their designs. Just like with music, I'm not great at describing why exactly I like something - I just like it.
