Our Global Fashion Reporter Kristin Yamada is never without her camera, constantly visually and mentally processing fashion. Her job is to travel to Fashion Week and other assignments, document style on the street, and report back to us what it all means.

She feeds perfect photos to The Thread for our galleries and slideshows. But what you don’t see are her physical trend reports, hefty tomes which she delivers and explains live to an internal audience. Where did this collar come from? What does the combination of this sneaker and this handbag indicate? Kristin has the answers.

Also she’s just cool. Here she is talking about packing for Fashion Week.

We love collecting travel tips from our adventurous friends. Even if we’re not sure when we’ll get to use them, we squirrel them away in the hope that someday we, too, will get to visit these amazing locales.

Since Milan is next on the Fashion Week circuit, we asked our street-style photographer, Kristin Yamada, about her favorite places in the Italian fashion capital. After all, Kristin is basically Italian by choice.

Here’s what she told us not to miss when in Milano.

And just like that, closing time for London Fashion Week has struck on Big Ben’s face. Although it seemed as fleeting as a moment of sunshine in the British capital, LFW packed the street-style punches. To make up for the overcast skies, the fashion fold wore acid-bright colors and sparkly shoes. We were oh-so-pleasantly dazzled.

Here are just some of our favorite looks on the loveliest ladies we’ve been trailing all week—plus their Instagram accounts so we can keep tabs on them as they bounce to the next Fashion Week.
