Q & A:
1. How would you describe your style?
Classic European style with a fashion-forward edginess. I like to mix designer pieces with everyday staples. For example: Prada pants, Isabel Marant top with Zara boots.
2. What is your best style advice for women?
Focus on a small number of core wardrobe staples and build your looks around those. Wear well-fitted pieces that suit your body shape.
3. What are the latest fashion trends you are excited about?
The explosion of color for Spring 2013 is wonderful to see, leaving behind neutral palettes and moving to such a varied spectrum of colors.
4. What makes you happy? What inspires you?
My children make me happier than I can actually describe. Nothing makes me happier than to dress in an outfit that I feel has been well put together – it makes me feel on top of the world! I’m inspired by people who aren’t afraid to challenge themselves in any facet of life, be it work, art or sport. I feed off creative people and—thanks to them—I can then tap more into my own creative side.
MORE ABOUT GEMMA NEWLOVE
Originally hailing from English shores, Gemma Newlove has spent most of her adult life abroad, and by no means any coincidence in some of the world’s best fashion & style locales such as Milan, London and Sydney. This broad international exposure has given Gemma a truly unique style and sensibility. Her inspiration comes from an eclectic appreciation of Italian artisanship and tailoring, Australian edgy beach boho-chic and British tradition and heritage.
Gemma’s pivotal moment came whilst working for Glenda Bailey of Harper’s Bazaar US in Milan. This real life “Devil Wears Prada” experience led to the realization that fashion was part of her raison d’être.
Her friends all look to her as their very own style setter and are always asking for tips and advice on current trends. Gemma is delighted to be a ModeWalk stylist and ultimately aspires to be in a position of promoting her very own sartorial designs on ModeWalk.
