5 Questions With...Mary Kate Steinmiller

12.02.12

Mary Kate Steinmiller- Senior Fashion Market Editor at Teen Vogue can be spotted on the front row of many-a New York show. Find out what she's most looking forward to this week as she answers our '5 Questions With...'

What's your favourite ever Fashion Week show?

In terms of my favorite show I have ever attended, it would be Ralph Lauren – Spring 2010. It was my very first opportunity to see a Ralph Lauren show, and it was so utterly fresh and beautiful. I realize Ralph is no fashion innovator or visionary, but he represents pure, clean, classic American fashion, and this show was a representation of that. My peer editors were laughing because I teared up during the show, but I remember every detail ---- from the loose baby blue ribbons in the girls hair, to the flush on their cheeks and the subtle shine on the denim.

Which trend will you be trialling at Fashion Week?

I’m all about warmth and comfort this fashion week. February shows are always miserable and freezing, so for someone who loves and lives in skirts, dresses and heels,  I’m going to take a chance and embrace pants and super cool sneakers for the week.

Who are the 5 people on your fantasy front row?

Anna Wintour, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, Jay-Z, Mary Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen

Which show are you most excited to see?

In NYC Rag & Bone
