Fashion Mogul

     What sets a Fashion Mogul apart from the regular everyday girl who picks out an outfit before leaving the house? Interesting question... for me, I’d say creativity, the ability to create, not just put something together. Anyone can slap an outfit together, just like anyone can make a PB&andJ. That doesn’t mean they can cook. Being a Fashion Mogul is more than just picking out clothes that match. It’s the ability to create something absolutely brilliant!


So who is my Fashion Mogul for May?

Jonathan Simkhai

OK, I know this is a girls magazine but, I chose to feature a male designer. This fashion mogul was inspired by the female fashion industry and I just had to feature him as this month’s ‘fashion mogul’. Yes I understand he is a "HE", so what! His work is so captivating and I debated it in my head for what...  5 seconds and decided that yes , he would be the first male fashion mogul featured in this section. You can’t deny talent no matter who it comes from and I wanted it to encourage you that you can be successful and thrive in whatever career you choose to pursue, as long as you persevere, be dedicated and love it! So back to the fun stuff... his work is my kind of style. I would call it, ‘Monday Fierce’.

Sally Lapointe a true trend setting fashion designer (my new obsession). She is a Massachusetts native who has earned a spot on Forbes’ 2013 ‘30 Under 30 in Art + Design.’  Sally along with Sarah Adelson founded the brand Lapointe together. Her collections are made with poise, class, elegance and are truly captivating with the bold reds and the eye-catching sequins. I would call her fall 2018 collection, 'Manhatten chic'.

Nichole Lynell not only does she exude glamour, but poise and elegance and the thing that I’m inspired by most is her ability to create her own clothes that she walks so boldly in.
