Video: 5 Style Lessons From A Latin Fashion Editor

It is inevitable to think about the movie The Devil Wears Prada when one imagines the life of a fashion editor, is not it? But in addition to the glamor, the parties and the parades in Paris, in the work with which many dream you can learn to understand where the trends come from and where they are going, how much you have to let yourself be carried away by fashion and how to be stylish season after season.

To bring you these fashion keys, we interviewed the Mexican writer Sara Galindo who, after twelve years as executive fashion editor of Elle México magazine and other business adventures always related to fashion, launched her first book: Tú, You, Toi: Your style is you, in which she tells us what she is wearing this year, her style references and how to be a good fashionista and not a slave to trends.

What is the difference between fashion and style for you?

Fashion is what designers offer you four times a year. The style is you.

What are your favorite designers and reference style icons?

My current international favorite designers are Alessandro Michele [Gucci], Karl Lagerfeld, Stella Mc Cartney and Phoebe Philo [Céline]. My favorite style icons are women like Coco Chanel, Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Giorgia Tordini, Veronika Heilbronner and Caroline de Maigret.

What is the star trend that you recommend for this spring / summer?

Robes, men's shirts without one shoulder, origami and shoulders with a round shape.

What is the best advice you have received in your life about fashion, trends and style?

“You can always be chic and stylish with a t-shirt and jeans. It is something you have in your veins. Never become a victim of fashion, it is very easy to fall there, Do not use clothing as a cover letter. You have much more to give than clothes can. You are first, the clothes later”, Karl Lagerfeld

Why did you decide to write this book?

We have always believed that we have to project an image with what we are wearing, but after 20 years of having this false belief I realized that it is completely the opposite. What we really have to look for is to dress to reflect who we are and not define our essence and personality with what we wear. My book, in addition to helping you sharpen your style, will be the most complete guide to look fabulous in any situation, at any age and in any setting, it will help you understand that the competition is not outside but with yourself, because you are unique and unrepeatable. There is no one better than you, there are simply different people.

What would you recommend to someone who wants to start a career in the fashion business?

Work hard and never take your finger off the line. You can achieve everything you propose if you focus, never lose the floor, never believe that you already know everything or that you are the best because that's when you can start losing everything. Plant roses on your way, because you never know when you will return walking on it.
