Meet Madison | Style Ambassador

Madison-Style-Ambassador-Glasses

Madison is our style ambassador who can be found around the globe working on different projects being an international press writer and stylist. Dabbling also in PR and manufacturing, she is constantly on the move. While she admits avoiding glasses in her youth, like most do, she now sees them to be as vital to a wardrobe as staple accessories.

Name & Nickname: Madison | Mads

Home base: San Francisco & London (when I’m not travelling)

My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 8 pairs of eyeglasses and 3 pairs of sunglasses.

I applied to become a style ambassador because: I thought it was a wonderful way to display how diverse eyeglasses are in everyday life, and worn for any occasion. I am also a massive fan of Clearly’s selection in designer frames.

Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They can change the look of your entire outfit by wearing a different pattern, colour, or shape… the sky is the limit!

A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Take someone with you, a person who will tell you the truth no matter what! But, remember to always choose a frame that you love! Sometimes trying on a completely different style may surprise you. It’s all about your eyes and the shape of your face.

Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? Absolutely! I have a few basic tees and tanks that are great for layering, travelling and working out.

I chose this pair of glasses because they showcase my style: artistic, sophisticated, and never shy about patterns! These Valentino frames are a conversation starter and already make a statement by their shape. But, they’re also going to be quite versatile in my wardrobe.

My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: I truly love pastels! Although, I usually wear whatever I want in any given season.

The best way to organize a closet is: For me it’s by item/style, i.e., skirts, knitwear, blouses, etc. I almost never do it by season anymore, since I often have to wear autumn/winter pieces throughout the year. I have also invested in good shelving/bins for shoes, and hat boxes for clutches and scarves.

My favourite online source for style inspiration is: Interior/architectural magazines and fine art sites.

I like the way Gwen Stefani and Tilda Swinton express their style. From daring patterns to minimal polished pieces, they both always have such a distinct attitude of confidence in what they wear.

If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Too many people to choose from, but perhaps Tricky and Diane Von Furstenburg. DVF has been such an inspiration to me since I was a little girl. I think she would have good humor, and give great insight about the apparel industry. She’s innovative, and a smart business lady. And, Tricky for a good chat about music and influence.

A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Twitter (@ladyofashion) and Flipboard.

Favourite city to go shopping is: Berlin and Prague. I generally try to stop by local flea markets in other cities as well.
