No one’s asking you to feel badly for fashion people who have to (get to!) hustle, rush, lose sleep and miss meals to catch dozens upon dozens of beautiful dresses, coats and separates during the industry’s twice-yearly around-the-world tours of designers and collections. But the truth is: it is a hustle.

London Street-Style Stars to Watch

These are the people we can’t wait to see hit the pavement at LFW. Expect them to pull out all the stops for the second leg of runway shows.

Julia Sarr-Jamois

Queen of risk-taking, freelance stylist and senior fashion editor at i-D magazine Julia Sarr-Jamois is street style’s unparalleled It girl. A pioneer of streetwear’s now ubiquitous fashion sweatshirt, the London native boasts a signature fro and enviable free spirit. Usually packing color, texture and pattern into her ensembles, Sarr-Jamois could just as easily throw on perfectly weathered vintage jeans and tees and still stand out among the crowds.

Nordstrom Signature collaborator Caroline Issa is one of those people you just always want to see when you walk into the room. Because she’s so gracious and kind, and because she’s just been somewhere interesting or is about to go somewhere epic—and because she always has an amazing outfit on.

We ran into her at the Alexander Wang presentation on Saturday wrapped in the chicest plush wine tones, and spent a few minutes ceiling-gazing around the show’s grand and historic venue before I got her take on one New York City essential.

Sure, the casualization of workwear is a thing oft lauded as a godsend for modern office life (we definitely aren’t complaining), but international fashion fixture and businesswoman Caroline Issa reminds us that keeping the pro in professional has its perks, too.

Spring in Paris attracts the romantics; fall brings back the fashion fanatics. For this final stop during Fashion Month designer Caroline Issa selected a flirty outfit to go with an overtly coquettish clutch. We think it’s the perfect finale to a series of sophisticated looks. (Don’t miss Issa’s picks for New York, London, and Milan.)

Número tres stop during Spring 2016 Fashion Month is Milan, Italy’s fashion, commercial and economic hub. As with New York and London before, designer Caroline Issa—a street-style guru, too—has selected an outfit that revolves around a handbag chosen for the chic city. And this suede, drawstring borsa is molto bella.

Yep, it’s that time again. Over the next month, editors, buyers, models, and more will be disembarking planes and weaving their way through New York, LondonMilan and Paris as the next round of Fashion Weeks—the Spring 2016 editions—come to life. The key piece this September and October from city to city and coast to coast? The handbag. We had Caroline Issa select one for each city—and a look to go with it.
