Caroline Issa is most widely known as the fashion director of Tank magazine, but with her background in finance and marketing she also works heavily in the business side of things. In short, she’s a fashion powerhouse. An elegant mixture of creative and business savvy, Issa is the kind of woman we should aspire to. She understands the industry in a way that is realistic and innovative. Career envy aside, her unique perspective is not the only thing that I love about her. Her style is practical but experimental. It’s also very easy to draw inspiration from as it is relatable and understated. The best part is that you can never pick what year her looks are from. Every look has a timeless quality that is rare in this fast-paced era of fashion. Here are some of my favourite looks.
Another example of her rocking a pair of 7/8s. She works prints in a really seamless way, that is simple but still eye-catching and intriguing.
Could you pull off a giant army green fur coat that is giving me flash backs to Oscar the Grouch? Highly unlikely (no offence) but Issa does so without a hitch. This demonstrates her keen and creative eye and also shows that she knows when to work it and when to play it safe.
Finally, the layering in this look is amazing. The variation in not only colour but texture is so creative. It makes me wish I had a powder blue metallic biker jacket, something I never really thought I’d say…
