Sarah Chavez is the Managing Editor of 25 Magazine, and one of our favourite New York style stars. She is our Everyday Icon this week – and here’s why.
Toronto-bred and New York-based Sarah Chavez is the Managing Editor of 25 magazine, founded by supermodel Anja Rubik (whom Chavez met through a mutual friend.) She is also a consultant, with brands like Marc Jacobs on her client list, and a muse to fashion week photographers all over the world.
Chavez was photographed by Adam Katz Sinding in a chilly New York City, and we asked her to share some of her style secrets.
