Do It Like Doonan
Meet Simon Doonan - I did in 2006 at Teen Vogue's Fashion University. Simon Doonan is known for his outlandish display windows as Creative Director for Barney's New York. Here he was giving students insight into his inspirations for his window designs. Doonan was one of the masterminds behind the Warhol trend a few seasons back after his iconic tribute to the artist in the Barney's windows in Winter 06. Aside from visual creations, Doonan also has a collection of books including his most recent - Eccentric Glamour.
This book is on my list of fashion must-reads. It depicts the importance of boldness in terms of personal style.
You can follow Simon's blog at Barneys.com
or visit his website. As a trendsetter, and the top man in visual merchandising, Simon Doonan is just one person in fashion you should know.
