Once upon a time when I was interning for a local indie designer on east 9th street,A cool chic southern belle with top notch style lived across the street,making her my neighbor. Her name was April Hughs and she was a fashion stylist/editor at Elle Magazine. I would see April at all the major shows during fashion week and she'd stop in to pull something at Cynthia Rowley where I was interning as well. I'd be backstage dressing the models and she'd be rubbing elbows with the designers. Back then I was 18 and she 25 which used to be an adult in my eyes. Later on April became the leading fashion editor for this new hip magazine in town with editorials to die for. That magazine was NYLON MAG!!! This brought April to new heights in my young girl fashion hungry eyes...
This story being said,it's pretty clear why Faran Krentcil is editor worship worthy in my book,since currently she is on top of NYLON MAG hierarchy !!!
Faran Krentcil is a friendly fashionista on the trend-setting circuit. She was a major key player in bringing Fashionista.com to new heights, "Thank God for Fashionista!". Her curly blond hair and inviting smile makes her super approachable and equally adorable. I am overjoyed to have Faran as an addition to my blog full of female gems.

I'm the Digital Director for NYLON Magazine. That means I'm in charge of bringing the NYLON Universe online through stories, images, videos, music, and nights of no sleep. I love it because I get to be creative every day. I love it because I work with incredible people who aren't afraid to tell me when I'm wrong. I love it because it gives me an excuse to carry my camera everywhere. I love it because when I was 17, I bought a copy of NYLON in a supermarket, and for the first time I felt like somebody, somewhere, knew who I wanted to be.
