Author, Fashion Editor, and Stylist, Caroline Vazzana, developed a love for fashion at a young age which she decided to turn into her career. She also wrote her book “Making it in Manhattan,” which is about the ins and outs of the fashion industry. This allowed her to relay to her readers and fellow fashionistas her own experience as well as the lessons she learned along the way. Working hard and also enjoying everything that life has to offer, Caroline Vazzana embraces every day to its fullest!
What pushed you to pursue a career in fashion? Has fashion always played a big part in your life?
Growing up I always loved fashion. I always insisted on dressing myself when I was little and loved experimenting with bright colors and crazy textures. It wasn’t until I got a little older though that I realized I could pursue fashion as a career and that’s when I applied to colleges for fashion design.
Tell us more about the inspiration behind your book “Making it in Manhattan.” What was your favorite part about writing this book? What did you hope your readers would get out of it?
I wanted to write “Making it in Manhattan” to draw back the curtain, to let people into what can feel like a very exclusive fashion industry and teach them the ins and outs. My favorite part was probably just sharing my journey and reliving it along the way. I hope my readers feel inspired to pursue their dreams!
What was your experience like being the face of legendary costume designer Patricia Field’s “Sex and the City” campaign? Do you recall a moment throughout that experience that had a strong impact on who you are?
I loved working with Pat and her team! They are such a creative team and I was so honored to work with them! It was really cool wearing pieces from the Sex and the City archive!
Where do you think the future of fashion is headed? What role do you hope to play in its growth?
I think the past year we’ve all slowed down a bit and taken a step back. For me, it’s been a year of adapting to the new work from home lifestyle. I hope to continue to be able to inspire my community to dress outside the lines and that you can build your brand no matter where you are!
Describe to us a typical day in your life.
There isn’t really a typical day ever. It’s always changing. On a daily basis, I’m doing zoom calls with brands, writing and editing articles, styling shoots, and creating content for my personal channels.
What piece of advice would you give to other fashionistas out there?
Don’t give up! This past year has been tough. But the fashion industry is still here. With hard work, anything is really possible in this industry.
