Meeting interesting new people from all walks of life was a major motivating factor that lead me to a career in journalism years ago when I was still slogging away as a college student at UCLA’s Daily Bruin. To this day, it’s still one of the best parts of the job. As a fashion editor, I’m constantly meeting a special breed of industry insiders—designers, stylists, photographers, artists, publicists and others who live and breathe fashion and beauty and possess an incredible eye for style. Nerissa’s Notebook seemed like the perfect place to bring you an occasional style snapshot of trendsetters I meet from around the globe in the feature I’m simply calling “My Favorite Outfit.”
For the debut post, I’ve interviewed Lucile Puton, a talented young menswear designer I met in the South of France in May while covering the Hyeres International Festival of Fashion and Photography. She was one of the 10 selected finalists in the competition.
