Fashion and Franks Fave Fashionistas - Yasmin Sewell

This week i have gone back to the Brits, well she is an Aussie, but so beloved and firmly embedded in our fashion hearts that we like to think of her as one of our own, Yasmin Sewell.  Former buying director for Browns, her own shop Yasmin Cho, mecca for stylish londoners and rockstars alike, credited with Liberty's fashion successes in her role as consultant and now at Westfield.  Her style is both elegant and at the same time borrowed from the boys which is a hard look to pull off, I think she does it to perfection.  Wishing all my fellow fashion lovers a good week xx


I love this outfit - it is so easy and we all have these pieces, push up your sleeves and belt your waist - perfect!


Love the collar, the opaques and then the play between the skirt and bag


Strong standout pieces grounded by the coat and the open yet stong shoe


Small details - the brown of the boot echoing the brown in hat 


I have this cardi - i hope to wear it as successfully one day - the neutral outfit, sleeves pushed up again and then that Fendi bag - so easy so effective


Love love love the sleeves


Again have the jacket (so chuffed to share pieces in common with Ms S) and love the boyfriend jean - am really feeling boyfriend jeans at the mo



My two final fave pics - pure and utter perfection x


I am going to be having a bit of a break over the next couple of weeks, i have a visit from my mum coming up and work/life balance with blog getting a bit out of whack, so although i wont be posting/commenting as much i will be checking in as much as poss x

  1. So true, she pulls off the boyish look so well, and styles it in a way that is so unique. I love the last two pictures, something quite French about them.

  2. Claire, of all the fashion buyers/fashionistas, Yasmin Sewell has always been my favourite because she is so original and I love her chic version of the boyish style. She did a great job at Liberty and she is such a dynamic person that I'm curious to see what's next. I'll never forget when I bumped into her at Browns and I happily noticed that we had the same pair of Seven For All Mankind jeans, small joys...

  10. Love her! Pulling off a menswear is really hard, but for her she did it effortlessly. My fave from is the one where she wore a cardigan and the other one, with fedora brown hat. :)

    Have a great day babe!
