The next generation with famous fashion lineage is coming onto the scene—some are already in the game, while others are just starting to flirt. Here, four new faces you’re likely to see again.
NAME: Daisy de Villeneuve AGE: 32 FASHION PEDIGREE: Her father, Justin de Villeneuve, was the iconic Sixties photographer who discovered and promoted Twiggy. Her mother, Jan Ward, a fashion model, was regularly featured in Vogue and has worked with Mario Testino and David Bailey. CURRENT POST: London-based de Villeneuve is an illustrator, collaborating with Topshop on products such as bags, mugs, shoe boxes, stationery and underwear. Her other clients include Moët & Chandon and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. “I’m not in the fashion world, but I dip into it,” she says, adding that her aesthetic is “colorful, childlike, naïve…but in a good way.” REASON FOR WORKING IN FASHION: “I liked the idea of making my own clothes,” says de Villeneuve, who studied fashion design briefly at Parsons School of Design in New York, before switching to a fine arts degree. PERSONAL STYLE: “I don’t like these fashion designers who make things you can’t wear. I don’t have money to burn on designer clothing, although I appreciate it. I like to be individual, not follow the trends.” INDUSTRY IDOL: Zac Posen. “He’s a friend of mine, and I knew him before he became famous. It’s been great just to see him go from being at Central Saint Martins to what he is now. I went to his show for the first time recently and saw Martha Stewart and Puff Daddy in the front row. It was amazing.” FASHION WEAKNESS: “I love classic clothes.”
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
