"New York is associated with workwear and a very understated, urban style, which suits my sensibility," explains Maria Milano, Head of Womenswear at Harrods. Kicking off our Step Inside series, which follows four industry insiders throughout Fashion Month, we caught up with Maria ahead of New York Fashion Week to see what her transatlantic suitcase looks like.
"My three top tips for dressing for New York would be to overpack – which is the opposite of what people usually tell you but I like to be prepared; to keep your eyes open and allow yourself to be influenced by what’s around you; and to have fun!"
"Key accessories for New York are my mini bags – I’m obsessed!"
Follow #StepInside on @Harrods Instagram to see Maria in New York, plus we’ll be joining Caroline Issa in London, Pernille Teisbaek in Milan and Monica de la Villardière in Paris.
