She has an easy elegance and grace, is not afraid of experimenting with clothes, displays authentic individuality in her choices and always proves that her instincts are good. A style icon in her own right, she is one of those girls who in my opinion will truly define an era. She has the kind of French sophistication women long for, the playful Parisian charm I admire in my mother (yes, she’s French) and has her place in my top 10 key influential style forces. Her name is Liz Goldwyn. LA jewellery designer, rock and roll kid and granddaughter of legendary Hollywood movie mogul Sam Goldwyn she is also the author of a documentary which looks at the last generation of burlesque queens in the 1930s to 1950s through their clothes. She knows what fashion can do for a woman and her expertise apparently started at a very young age. As a teenager, she was already cultivating her passion buying vintage pieces at thrift stores using her pocket money. I could spend hours studying pictures of her under a microscope. She genuinely comes alive when playing dress-up. Whether wearing YSL, Balenciaga or vintage from her huge personal collection there is always a place for feminine audacity. Personally, I’m attracted to the energy that emanates from her, the quirky ideas and old-fashioned virtues she displays through her clothes and references to chic. There’s a new girl in the fashion family!
