Delia Sweeney 29, Gallery Director and Actress “This skirt is from Madison in Los Angeles. Both men and women have told me it’s ‘hot,’ women probably because they can tell it’s easy to wear.”
Johanna Williams 23, Model “The skirt is from Wasteland. I think in spite of how high the slits go, it’s still pretty covered up because of the middle piece. It’s an effortlessly chic piece.”
Simone Jamille Wicha 39, Museum Director “My taste is influenced by artists and architects. I’m attracted to clean lines, structural elements, richness in color or material, and depth.”
