It’s day 14 of our Advent calendar; a calendar like no other. It is the perfect way for WGSN Insider readers to meet the team members in our global offices, find out more about what they are working on and why they are coveting certain items.

Each day for the next 11 days, we’ll be spotlighting a member of the team and their seasonal picks. Enjoy!

Holiday Wish List: Day 14

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!


2015 was my personal year of the jumpsuit – I’ve lived in them for the past 12 months. Despite this, I’ve yet to get into ‘evening’ jumpsuits, but I spotted this one on Pinterest and think it would make the perfect New Year’s Eve outfit.

Ballet magic


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.

Luxe Candles


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.
