Today we bring you our editor Mariana Leung who publishes Ms. Fabulous. During New York Fashion Week, Miami Fashion Week and other top events you will find her embedded in the photographer’s pit to bring you the top trends and insider fashion scoop. Get to know her better:

Where do you live?

New York City! I have lived here for over 20 years working, breathing, designing, photographing and writing about fashion.

What do you write about?

Designers I think are doing something interesting. People in fashion who are passionate about their work or a worthy cause. Creative people who are doing something inspirational to designers. Beauty and style products that I love.

Who were your favorite designers at NYFW?

My favorite presentations this season were Reem Acra, Zang Toi, Theia and Vivienne Tam.

Describe your personal shoe style?

Heels that are comfortable are the Holy Grail for me. Machi Footwear has great styles taken straight from the runways. Even the tallest heels are surprisingly wearable. That’s perfect for my red carpet trips at Fashion Week events!

Blogger Spotlight: Lindsey Puls

Machi Footwear LOVES bloggers! We had a chance to meet up with a few of our favorites during NY Fashion Week. We thought you might want to get to know them better. First up is Lindsey Puls of Have Clothes Will Travel. She looked very pretty wearing a lace dress with a cream handbag and our floral print MIYA-3 heels after the Angel Sanchez fashion show.

Where do you live?

Princeton, New Jersey is currently my home base. However, that location is always changing. My husband and I are constantly on the move for his job, so we are bouncing from one end of the country/world to the next. (Our next big move will be after the holidays.)

What do you write about?

Have Clothes, Will Travel (my blog) is a mix of my outfit and travel posts. My outfit posts can range anywhere from evening gowns to geeky Star Wars dresses to sweaters and jeans… I never limit it myself when it comes

to personal style. I like to let my readers know how to recreate the looks, and what I think of the quality of the clothing I’m wearing, and what kind of event I’m wearing the outfit for.

As for the travel posts, those have been anywhere from Rome to India to fun things to do right here on the East Coast (I’m even working on a shark cage diving post from Cape Cod!). I’ll share fun little tidbits about the trips, and give advice to anyone looking to take a trip there themselves.

What has been your favorite part about New York Fashion Week this season?

Actually being able to attend it! Haha. Having not lived in the area very long, this was the first NYFW I was able to attend.

As far as shows go, though, Rodarte had my favorite spring collection. I’m still dying over those Mary Janes!

 

Who is your favorite designer?

Oh, that’s a tough one. But probably Caroline Herrera. I love the timelessness of her collections.

 

Describe your personal shoe style?

Quirky yet classic. I adore shoes that have a retro vibe to them, but I’m also not afraid to rock an eye-catching stiletto with a bright floral print.
