President & CEO, SWW Creative. New York
In November 2009, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff started her new tenure as the founding director of fashion at Lincoln Center. At the core of her responsibilities, is overseeing the relocation of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to its new home at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park, a move she did with both grace and ease. With a jewelry collection that we dream about (a haven of Lanvin jewels) to her Hermès bags in every color, style, and shape under the sun, when we die, we can only hope we go to Wolkoff heaven (we've been good girls after all!) During her time at Vogue, SWW was mentored by Anna Wintour, and was responsible for overseeing and producing the magazines famed events, including the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala and the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund for young emerging designers. But beyond the world of fashion, Wolkoff still manages to lend her hand to a slew of New York City-based charities—and as busy as she is, she certainly has the clothes, shoes, and accessories to make a lasting impression. With Blackberry in her right hand, a can of Coca Cola Zero in her left and a Birkin paired with a fur-embellished custom overcoat, we couldn't be happier to have the one and only Stephanie Winston Wolkoff in the house!
