Decked Out: Hannah Simone’s Global Sense of Style
Written by on January 24th, 2015

We saw that you attended your first Fashion Week — tell us about that.

It was incredible. It’s always so great when you get to experience something new for the first time. I went to the Monique Lhuillier show and that was sucha beautiful show. It was such an experience, and then I went to a dinner she held afterward. The designer [Lhuillier] was just so lovely and genuinely interested in our feedback and what we liked. It was just such an honest and organic experience.

What are some other designers you love?

Peter Pilotto — I wore a great outfit they designed; I was a huge fan. I’m wearing a Ted Baker dress today for an event, and I love how fresh and feminine their clothes are and the way they fit so beautifully.
