Sometimes I like to imagine myself as the most interesting person you could ever meet, but usually I’m just your ordinary girl who’s found herself deeply seduced by the glamour and mystery of fashion. While so many people find solace and comfort in black, I regularly dress as if I’ve exploded out of a children’s cartoon. I believe that more is more: colours, prints, and heavy texturing. Load on the accessories and layer the clothes. The louder, the better. Why bother making a statement if no one can hear it, let alone feel the impact?
Personal style provides a fluidity that factual information never can. What I wear says much more about me than what I study or where I work. You can know me before I even open my mouth. The way I dress embodies my mood, my identity, and my aspirations. It’s how I express myself to the world. The meaning of dress, and the creation of beauty through what people wear, is the all-consuming focus of my thoughts.
That’s it. That’s Lydia, the new styling intern at WORN.
I absolutely adore her personality and what she stands for. Her work at Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and The Costume Institute in the Metropolitan Museum of Art is inspirational. Her pizzazz is legendary and her point of view is so unique and distinct. Her creation of fantasy and her constant drive for the unexpected is motivational.
She has a quirky cartoonish style filled with frilly, girly details and an intelligent point of view to boot. What’s there not to love?
The magazines that she started (Pop, AnOther and Love) are thick, juicy, and always filled with the most interesting editorial photos. Her distinct point of view is so undeniably original. I love her amalgamation of playfulness with tailoring and luxury.
TrendLand’s Editorial Page
The dirty dirty truth is that a lot of the time I look through fashion magazines just to see the editorial photos. (Except when I’m reading WORN, of course). TrendLand saves me the trouble of flipping through dozens of glossies by posting all the amazing editorial photos right online, with descriptions of models and stylists.
