YOU ARE A BABE
BLANDA EGGENSCHWILER, ILLUSTRATOR / GRAPHIC DESIGNER
"I was born and raised in Switzerland and came to New York to study graphic design at SVA and then graduated and worked at The New York Times as an Art Director, and then at a brand engagement firm. Creative freedom is the most interesting to me... If you have a project where you can go nuts and use your judgment, then it’s amazing. I do different side projects that are a good balance to my everyday work; I’ll take on pretty much anything that’s fun. I did a t-shirt and jewelry line for OBEY recently, and that was great."

CONNIE WANG, GLOBAL EDITOR, REFINERY29
"I grew up in Minnesota but then I went to school out in San Francisco. Um. . . I moved to New York and when I started at Refinery I was maybe the third editor they had. I was number six on their staff, now we’ve grown to maybe fifty people with a huge team. I’m the Global Editor, so I manage everything that shows up on the homepage for Refinery. I source freelancers and contributors that have really niche interests and I also write stories and trend reports."
JANE KELTNER DE VALLE, TEEN VOGUE
Jane Keltner De Valle, Fashion News Director, Teen Vogue in Paris: “ I am wearing a Bare Essentials blush, I think it is called sorbet and a NARS lipstick in roman holiday. I am wearing some eyeliner too but you can’t really see it right now. That's it--I like to keep it simple.”
