A Major Prediction for the Fashion Industry in 2017

It’s a been a pretty big year for Yasmin Sewell, who helped relaunch the new Style.com in the UK this September. But even before that, the site’s fashion director and Who What Wear’s Street Style Star of the Year has been as much a fashion week staple as the clothes, the designers, or the after-parties have been. It’s due to not only her creative and cutting-edge outfits but also her chameleon-like ability to thrive professionally in multiple corners of the fashion world.

To give you an abbreviated bit of her impressive résumé, the Australia-born, London-based Sewell first launched a celebrity-loved boutique in the late ’90s and then went on to work for Browns in London; later on, she consulted for major brands. Oh, and she’s also behind Être Cécile. Exhausted yet? Not Sewell. Her style is like a sartorial pick-me-up every time we spot her, be it in the most billowy ruffles, the freshest of prints, or a sublime pantsuit. She’s a champion of emerging brands, is game to mix high and low, and, simply put, her love for fashion is palpable.

Ahead, she lets us in on her style tricks, closet, and predictions for the future of the industry.
