With fashion month upon us, anticipation is high among editors, buyers, celebrities and industry fans. Those lucky enough to receive invitations are geared up for a month of craziness. Designers around the world spend months creating collections; production agencies planning sets; and PR companies coordinating with guests. But the oohing and aahing isn’t just for the runway. Before the lights dim, all eyes turn to the streets. The street-style brigade is on the move, and this is who we’re watching.
Fearless and fierce, Gilda Ambrosio’s style captured the attention of photographers around the globe and won her the adoration of the fashion industry. With 143k instagram followers, she’s been coined an ‘it-girl’ – but she’s so much more. Ambrosio’s schedule is constantly packed, bouncing back and forth between Milan and LA, and wherever else her projects take her. Currently her main focus is Attico, a brand she started with best pal Giorgia Tordini, which takes inspiration from 1920s boudoir robes. This fashion month she’s sure to mix in her own designs with those of legacy brands and other emerging designers. With Ambrosio, fashion is ruleless.
Model, mum, and street-style star, Candela Novembre reminds us how fun fashion can be. Since she was young, Novembre has viewed getting dressed as a game.

Novembre views her style the same way she views her life: a work in progress. Catch her gallivanting through the streets in her latest looks.

While she still enjoys travelling the world to discover new inspirations, Sewell is in love with the uniqueness and originality celebrated throughout London.

Her refined and classic style has her looking like a stylish relic of the past, while simultaneously a fashion icon of today. Walton spends hours and hours day after day scavenging antique markets and thrift stores looking for one-of-a-kind pieces, being sure to not miss a thing. Unlike those who bring their best for fashion month, Walton is impeccably dressed everyday.
A German model-turned-fashion-editor, Veronika Heilbrunner balances delicate femininity with boyish accents. You’ll find her dressing down multi-thousand dollar gowns with sneakers and athletic socks; no matter how extravagant the dress, she bases her choice of shoes on comfort and utility.

Anna Dello Russo
Anna Dello Russo consistently tops the list of ones to watch year after year. She entered the industry as a journalist and spent years working for Condé Nast in Italy before becoming a creative consultant and editor-at-large for Vogue Japan.
