WGSN Staffer: Carla Buzasi, Chief Content Officer
Having spent most of the past month travelling with work, I’ve been more or less permanently plugged into my MacBook or iPhone, so my Christmas gift inspiration this year is thanks to the cool and quirky people I follow online. This Christmas, if it doesn’t have a hashtag, it’s not going in my stocking!
I’ve been friends with Hannah Coffin, the founder and CEO of Needle & Thread, since we were 13 years old. Her label makes the most gorgeous, beaded and sequinned dresses, and her elegant Coppelia ballet dress looks like a timeless classic. I’d say I was biased but with everyone from Helena Christensen to vlogger Tanya Burr also wearing her designs, I’m in pretty good company. #proudfriend!!
My favourite shop in the world is Liberty, and their Instagram feed is a constant source of ‘I want one of those’ moments. The NikexLiberty collection was teased back in November and is the chicest tie-up between the two brands to date.
I’m in the middle of renovating, and have walls of mood-boards clipped from Pinterest in the flat. It was the colour combination of Diptyque’s Liquidambar candle which first caught my eye, but it’s deserving of a spot in my real-life world, too.
