Fashion Insiders Around the World
February 08, 2017
“Fashion is the last true democracy!” It was a line we overheard at a neighboring dinner table last night, and while everyone laughed, maybe there’s some truth to it. Influence now goes all ways instead of being an oligarchy. (The greatest cinematic burn of all time comes to mind as an explanation of the latter.) Isn’t the opinion of the wearers—the people—and the ways they mix styles, labels and brands, a more trusted endorsement? Thanks to the great global platform that is the Internet, fashion feels more egalitarian than ever. Get to know five women who have turned their international cities into real runways.
And on that note, a great soundtrack is in order. May this micro-playlist to inspire you to walk like a Michael Kors SS ’13 model.

There is a lot to learn—much more than style—from Mama Càx, Brooklyn-born and raised between Haiti and Montreal. She beat a cancer diagnosis and now has a prosthetic right leg. She started this new year with an Aristotle quote: “Where your talents and the needs of the world cross; there lies your vocation.”
