At RunwayRiot, we know that the truth about women on the street blows everything else out of the water. The women of New York and the visitors are fascinating. They’re engaging, they have refined opinions, and they do stuff with impact. They also dress cool. We don’t believe in the privacy of their feelings, nor of their stories. While the selfie generation is busy altering reality on Instagram, a few people, us included, are burning to get girls on the street talking, laughing, and schooling us on where they get their looks. Welcome to RunwayRiot StreetStyle where we chat up women on their streets about their outfits and other funny stuff.
Today we speak with a Tommy Hilfiger Merchandising Coordinator from Amsterdam, who we flagged down when we saw her dressed head to toe in Topshop. Watch her talk to me about making prep marketable to the kids on the internet, how fast fashion needs to cater to size diversity, and why the issue with fashion is that it’s excluding other models and only focusing on the ones with the most Instagram likes like Gigi Hadid.
