“I’ve been working for ASOS since last year and it’s been amazing. I love ASOS because it’s inclusive and makes fashion fun and exciting for all; it’s affordable but more than that, it’s really optimistic – and that’s such an important element in an industry that can so so often be the opposite. ASOS really embraces an open-minded attitude towards fashion, and I love creating features for the site based around cool, interesting people working in creative fields – usually my friends!”

“At Refinery29, I’m responsible for all of the New York newsletters that go out everyday. Gosh, it’s so nerve-wracking, once it’s up, even after there’s nothing else I can really do, I still click through it probably four or five times. I also put up seven to nine stories per day on the New York channel. If I don’t write them I edit them, just making sure it’s a good mix of beauty and fashion and keeping it local and in our voice. It’s different everyday and that’s totally fun.”

“My job overall is to have original content for the web and to tell the story of what’s going on in fashion at any given moment. I write articles and profile people and cover events. It’s so fun. My favorite part is meeting people and seeing their creative processes. I feel like fashion people get put in a corner but really it’s full of all these artistic types, from photographers to makeup artists and writers who really dedicate themselves to a craft and there is really something interesting in learning about why they do what they do.”

“I’m Australian and Montenegrin. I moved to New York six years ago as a music writer for a magazine. Now I have a Web site, which is like a music and fashion magazine called The Pop Manifesto. I started a record label late last year, which is associated with the magazine. They both have the same name because I can’t seem to separate the two. I DJ a lot and curate a party at the Tribeca Grand Hotel called Life from Tribeca. I didn’t name it, I would have probably just called it The Pop Manifesto as well [laughs]. I’m also in some bands: Apache Beat, Ille and Girl Crisis.”

THE CLEANSE: BLUEPRINT

In retrospect, giving in to the endless desserts and holiday baskets was maybe not the BEST idea (cue the extra spinning class.) In my efforts to ‘de-cookie’ myself after over-indulging over the holidays, like many of us do, I decided to embark on a cleanse to beautify from the inside out. I settled on BluePrint’s “foundation juice fast” — their mid-level cleanse. A box arrived with eighteen juices neatly arranged in plastic containers: six juices per day for three days.

“For the past six months I’ve been playing a lot of shows around New York and recording an EP, I produced it myself and wrote all the songs. I’m super excited; I think it’s a big evolution for me. I had a record come out when I was really young, I was eighteen and it was released in France and over Europe and it’s kind of reflective of how young I was. After finishing school I thought I may want to pursue acting, but after having time to grow into myself I have found that I’m really passionate about [my music]. I’m having a lot of fun with it and my EP should be out by the spring. I have done three films this year so I’m kind of just rolling with the punches, but I think my music is my main focus of the moment.”

“I work as a stylist and have a daily video series called ‘Today’s Look.’ I’m doing the whole thing with my brother, who is amazing; he is that encouraging person telling me to keep it up. I’ve been on Twitter since its early days and I would always tweet my look, which at the time wasn’t very common. My brother and I had talked about expanding my blog and Twitter and he loved the idea of adding video to it. People can comment on it; it’s super interactive. Not only do I love it because it’s the greatest creative outlet, but it helps me get dressed because I have to think about the show’s theme. ‘Today’s Look’ is very much of a hangout — ‘come hang out with Andrew.’”

“Basically I tweet for Milk Studios and I write for Milk Made as an ambassador for their site. I’d been at Made Fashion Week a bunch of times before working here and loved it. I’ve always found Milk so interesting, they do so many different things. On any given day we have some of the top photographers in the world shooting here, it’s such a great environment. The people are all very talented and inspirational.”

“I’ve had my own hat brand for the past two years. I really enjoy it and I’ve collaborated with some great people. [My designs] channel a dark romanticism, there’s a lot of black but at the same time it’s pretty kooky. They are dark and a bit witchy and also very ladylike. I’m really drawn to the 1920’s and Art Nouveau. I use a lot of alligator skins and only top couture materials; most of them are sourced from Paris.”

“I handle everything that Nylon does online. I come in every morning and take the reader’s temperature and figure out what everybody is obsessed with, what everybody wants to see and then make it happen. Sometimes that means going deeper into a feature that we’ve already done in the magazine, sometimes that means highlighting a trend we’ve seen on the street. It’s really cool and very agile – touches a bit of everything. My background is as a fashion writer, but the great thing about Nylon is there’s a lot fashion but there’s also film and art and music and life.”
