Josh, 40 “I’m obviously wearing a LOT: Moschino (bags, shoes, scarf, jewellery), Gucci (headband, sunglasses), Prada (red bag), Philipp Plein (t-shirt), MSGM (pants), Chanel (gloves, jewellery), Linda Farrow (gold sunglasses). There are so many serious things happening in the world, but I decided my fashion choices will not be one of them. I consider fashion joyful, playful and an escape from the difficulties of life. I’m a maximalist. If one of something is good, then two or three is even better. I get great pleasure from color, and from matching colors. I pride myself on cohesive chaos. I also often describe my style as “ridiculous, luxurious, sarcastic, fantastic”.

Jorge, 53 “I’m wearing a vintage L.L.Bean shirt, a mid-70s Pendleton shawl, an Agnes de Garron hat, Levis 529 jeans, and Nike sneakers. My looks spring from intuition; a color or pattern will be the starting point. As a poet and multimedia artist, I often read my poetry within the context of performance art pieces. I document my looks and musings on my website.”

Jessica, 33 “I’m wearing a hoodie I bought at a neighborhood bodega on my commute to show, vintage Claude Montana pants from Scout LA, Céline boots, and a Telfar bag. I change my hairstyles often so a lot of my personal style lends itself the type of hair I have at that moment. I also like to mix it up and pair high with low and vintage. Designers I like: Eckhaus Latta, Wales Bonner, Kwaidan Editions, The Row, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Céline (Phoebe era), Loewe, Lemaire, Y Project and Jacquemus.”

Elizabeth, 76 “I’m wearing rain boots that I airbrushed green, PJ pants by Joe Fresh that I dyed green, an Uniqlo jacket, a faux fur knitted scarf and Old Navy green gloves. I only wear the color green, because it is such an amazing, positive and loving color. Loving people inspires my style, and happiness that it brings.”

Arebela, 28 “I’m wearing a green set from Urban Outfitters, a coat by Kim Shui Studio, sunglasses by Free People, a bag by Stella McCartney, Kenzo shoes and brooches by November 19. Color bomb and pop art inspire my style. I’m also a big fan of green and red, and ready for all new things new.”

Yasin, 36 “I represent the evolution of humanity. No more one way we must all learn to respect, honour and appreciate the ones that make a difference. I dress according to my spirit for the day. They change. Everything I wear is a gift from either an indie designer or from a friend. The art of pay it forward. Now I’m wearing Hi On Life, Moyo by BiBi, Brav Didi, Damascus Apparel and Humble Haberdasher.”

Stephen, 29 “My jacket and bag are by MaryMe JimmyPaul, shorts by Bernhard Willhelm, leggings by Walter van Beirendonck, shoes hand painted by Scooter LaForge. Hat and scarf hand knitted by me. My main inspiration is color. I travel year round to teach knitting design and color techniques while I share my knitted designs so I’m constantly soaking up inspiration from favourite destinations like Iceland, Amsterdam, and NYC. Walter van Beirendonck is my favourite fashion inspiration.”

Veronika, 28 “I’m wearing a blazer by Mango Collective, pants by Cameo, a coat by Somedays Loving, a headscarf by Vicky Zhang, shoes from Berska, and a Supreme x LV bag. I like to mix up different textures. This particular outfit is inspired by my home, Russia, so today I am Russian babushka. I love the new Gucci – they have re-imagined the brand and I live for it. I love unisex style: suits for women, big shoulders, blazers. I think it’s sexy when a woman can pull it off topped with bold red lipstick.”
