In our wildest childhood dreams, we fantasized about having a fabulous town house near a park in a major city (London) with a lovely family, and an entire floor dedicated to our wardrobe, which—again, in our wildest dreams—would be full of pieces by Ashish, Roksanda, and Prada. Hi, Tania Fares lives that life.
She’s also an ambassador for the British Fashion Council, heading up a fund that supports promising British designers. Oh, she also co-wrote the book on contemporary British fashion, London Uprising: Fifty Fashion Designers, One City, so clearly if there’s anyone we’d turn to for all things London fashion, it’s Fares.
The Lebanese-born writer/editor/consultant’s closet is evangelical about London fashion. “What I love about London is how diversified the designers are,” she told us, “how creative, colorful, interesting everyone’s background is.” That creative, colorful, interesting thing applies tenfold to the contents of her literal full floor of a town house closet. It even has a bed, guys. Dreams.
