Best Wardrobes in Britain: Maxim Magnus

Welcome to the latest highly exciting instalment of Who What Wear UK's Best Wardrobes in Britain. It's where we do exactly what that title says on the tin: delve into the most fantastical, awe-inspiring and downright influential wardrobes in this fair country of ours. We're honing in on the women who cause the street style photographers to press their shutters as much as the characters you don't yet know—the ones who fly under the radar with secretly incredible clothing collections.

This month we are proud to present Maxim Magnus. The 20-year-old model has shot to fame over the past year in part thanks to her outspoken, eloquent, patient and trailblazing work as a trans woman. Maxim has broken stereotypes, smashed down some barriers and been calm and cool throughout her newfound popularity. Whilst you'll often see her through the eyes of über-cool magazine shoots, Gucci campaigns and catwalk shows, today is all about the real Maxim: shopping enthusiast and one of the biggest fashion fans we know. You'll find the Belgian-born,, London-based Insta-darling's true style (it's very varied and very brilliant), learn about her journey with clothes thus far and definitely feel rather envious of her shoe collection.
