Wen Wilmot is an artist, photographer, and aspiring fashion designer who has now taken to writing about fashion as a means of educating herself, and hopefully others on the issues that lie at hand for the industry. She considers fashion to be one of the most inspiring, intimate, and intriguing art forms existing today. She finds sensuality on all levels of the industry, from how clothes are conceived in the creative process, to the manufacturing, advertising, merchandising, and finally to how they feel to the touch. Her first creative memory was of sketching fashion plates. If you were to ask her what separates an average piece of clothing from an exceptional piece of clothing, she will tell you “fabric and fit. Good design is nothing without impeccable fit and superb fabric.” She considers clothing low on function to be a disappointment, and clothing high on function “genius”. Her style consists of lots of black, a little bit of white, leather, wool, silk, and sheer garments, with a bit of menswear in the mix. She has found that she prefers to alternate between days of structured and unstructured, masculine and feminine, and light and dark. She lives in New York.
