Style Profile… Holli Rogers

Have you always worked in fashion?

 

I started in the Neiman Marcus buying office which eventually led to my current role as Fashion Director of Net-a-Porter.

 

Did you have any early influences that sparked your interest in clothes?

 

My 7th grade science teacher never wore the same outfit twice. That’s always stuck in my head and has encouraged me to dress differently every day.

 

What do you read to begin your day?

 

I read The Economist and The Cut for daily updates and love flicking through UK or Australian ELLE Décor. However, I am obsessed with Assouline books at the moment, especially the Chanel leather-bound set by Francois Baudot & Francois Aveline!

The Sartorialist II Arrives in September 2012!

The other day I announced on Twitter the forthcoming release of my second book, The Sartorialist II, which will be available in September 2012.

 

I’m excited to work on another book, especially since the process and final result of the first one was so rewarding. The book signings were exhausting, but they were also a great opportunity to meet so many of my readers. I look forward to doing the whole thing all over again and making it even better this time!

 

With a long project like this, I think Twitter will be a great way to keep you guys updated so you can follow the process of creating a book, from the issues faced to the rewarding results.

 

I’m also working on a way for you to potentially contribute to the final result of The Sartorialist II, right now we’re just trying to figure out exactly what that process will be. Again, thank you for making the first book such a success, I can’t wait to complete the next.

 

Oh, P.S.– One of the things that I’ve been working on over the past several months has been saving some of my favorite images, instead of posting on the blog, as exclusives for the next book.  Since I’m addicted to sharing the best of what I find with you, it’s really killing me to save these images instead of posting them on the blog, but I think it will make the book that much stronger!

The Reading List…. The Modern Century

“A great deal of what is generally classified as photojournalism is in fact not reportage but illustration — a matter of providing an appropriate (attractive, somber, diverting, dramatic, comical, lively, unobtrusive) image to fill the space.  The alacrity with which Cartier-Bresson could grasp the social sense of any circumstance and distill it into an image made him one of the most accomplished illustrators of the twentieth century.”
