Home of New York's greatest vintage store 'Beacons Closet' , Bedford avenue is NY's version of Portobello road. Set in Williamsburg Brooklyn - Bedford ave is only a short ride on the metro, no longer than 20 mins from Union Square. One long street filled with market stalls, quirky boutiques and cute cafes, the local artsy crowd are an inspiration... shame we didn't bump into Dan Humphrey!


Look: Indie funk
Get- her - style: Chloe Sevigny, Daisy Lowe
Haunts - Beacons Closet (colour co-ordinated vintage store)
Secret finds - Diane Von Furstenberg cashmere cardigan for $20 !!!

Neve Tzedek - Tel Aviv - ISRAEL

(Click on image to make larger)

Neve Tzedek is situated in the vibrant city of Tel-aviv. The area is made up of little cobbled streets lined with ultra trendy boutiques, bars and restaurants. Shabazi Street within Neve Tzedek is home to the most fabulous jewellery and furniture design. Real gold and precious stones are a key focus for the israeli designers as well as unique costume jewellery. If looking for a religious jewellery e.g. star of david or evil eye/jewish hand symbol this is an excellent place to come for an individual piece that no one else will have. Womenswear and menswear is not purely on-trend however some pieces will fit well with other classic items in your wardrobe.

Look: Bohemian, nouveau hippie
Get-her-style: Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Kate Moss, Alice Dellal

Fashion & Travel, the perfect pair...

A designers biggest influences comes from their travels, each seasonal trend has a story behind the garment, inspiration is captured from Brick Lane to Bangladesh.

London, Paris, New York and Milan undoubtedly hold the most prestigious fashion emporiums showcasing the most beautiful garments however a hidden boutique or a secret independent label give more inspiration, more compliments and a greater thrill !

This is your world wide style guide.
