TRÉS AWESOME. The blog was started as a personal side project. Its main aim was to showcase the fabulous style of Chicago; a city often overlooked by the fashion community. Always obsessed with clothes and photography, TRÉS AWESOME allows Emma to indulge in both her passions. More importantly she hopes her blog gives people inspiration and even encourages them to experiment with their style and self-expression. This Über talented photographer has been published in New York Times, Elle, Time Out Chicago and even been featured on NBC news for Lollapalooza. My partner in crime at fashion events, Emma knows everyone who’s anyone in the Chicago fashion scene. Next month will be hitting NYFW together, trés excited!
Beautiful leather gloves and statement necklaces
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE CHICAGO'S FASHION STYLE?
Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, so it really depends on which one you're talking about. Wicker Park is art school chic whereas Lincoln Park is sporty spice.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
It's a combo platter of classic silhouettes with a contemporary edge.
WHAT’S THE MOST PRIZED POSSESSION IN YOUR CLOSET?
An Indian Chief Head Ring I got in a boutique in LA. And a pair of huge turquoise lace earrings from designer Ashley Scott of Drapes.
WHICH DESIGNERS DO YOU WORSHIP?
Stella McCartney, Elbar Albaz and the Mulleavy Sisters.
ONE THING YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
Laughter and love.
