This Australian knows what she likes. Orawan loves her new life in New York City, even though she admits liking Soho more than Williamsburgh where she actually lives. She considers Soho more upscale, while Brooklyn is too vintage. Clearly, she’s in the posh urban chic space, which is obvious from her choice of pink puffa by an upcoming Korean designer. Orawan was on her way to do some shopping in Soho, by far her favourite place to shop. She’s a big fan of the City, its eclectic food, its fashionable people and above all the energy. We agree! She works in e-commerce, travels often and loves animals. Anyone who loves animals is a friend of ours. We coincide with Orawan and with famous French writer Anatole France who once said: “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." @orilim__

Volen is a perfect example of style and substance. We almost didn’t catch him as he dashed down Great Newport Street, but his burgundy trench and exceptional layering were too good not to capture. He explained that he’s originally from Bulgaria, currently studying Comparative Literature at the prestigious Kings college. It's all about understanding cultures from the inside through language and artistic traditions. Volen's wardrobe is definitely cross-cultural, he was championing a burgundy trench by Bulgarian designer Kiko Kostadina among other international brands. His mother is a tailor for Kiko, so we know where he got his style sense!

Giorgia has been shop-hopping down Brick Lane. She’s keen to start studying Socio-Economic Studies at University in London, but in the meantime she’s perfecting her English at a language school. We caught her coming out of Hot Futures, a new funky sunglasses shop and she seemed determined to continue shop-hopping around the neighbourhood. Perhaps she was already starting to evaluate the economic activity of the trendiest London area. Has it progressed? Is it regressing? We would love to learn the outcome of her analysis. If we judge by the number of people walking around, we’d exclaim out loud “this is progress” at least in an economic sense. Georgia thanks for making us think a bit more about the current economic activity of our favourite London Neighbourhood!

Simplicity is her motto. Kate is inspired by minimalism and essential lines, this is why COS is one of her favourite brands. This stylish Graphic Design and Communications student is originally from Taiwan but as of late you will find her around Granary Square in and out of school. She’s so busy finishing the year's final major project that she has no time for anything other than to focus on her work. We wouldn’t have guessed that this is Kate’s daily University attire, she looked so chic! When she’s not busy at school she loves to visit Shoreditch as she can’t get enough from the people and how creatively they dress. @kateyu1218

The bard once proclaimed, 'all the world’s a stage', and that includes the rainy streets of Porto. Carla brought colour on a grey afternoon with her beautiful red Chinoise-esque parasol, a bright backdrop to her aqua-blue trench, a collision of colour and cultural styles. She explained that she works at the Teatro Rivoli – a beautiful theatre with a rich history dating back to the early 1900’s. It seems the perfect fit for Carla; the parasol definitely adds an element of the theatrical to her look, a little bit of Puccini in Porto!

Paola was taking a break from her nursing studies in Rome to visit her boyfriend and roam the streets of Barcelona. She defines her style as 'sporty elegance'. Brand loyalty does not define her look. Instead, she prefers to be compulsive and let her love of music guide her. 'Each outfit has a soundtrack', she tells us. We think her pastel brights and tulle layering convey a spring vibe, Paola says it looks like the song 'High' by James Blunt. The lyrics speak of a beautiful dawn. If all of her outfits have such positive sentiments and song titles, we want to hear the entire playlist.

Andrew's mood wasn't the shade of his coat; he was happy to be home. Originally from Long Island, he now lives in L.A., he's a director after all, but he told us that he just had to come back for a visit because he misses the NY weather. That’s original! His relaxed denim coat and beanie looked very East Coast and he told us that one of his favourite brands is Golf Wang streetwear by rapper and record producer Tyler the Creator. The colourful graphical t-shirts are personally designed by Tyler with new collections or 'drops' released bi-annually. Today Andrew is a tourist in his hometown, museum hopping before stopping off for his favourite bagels from Baz Bagels in Soho. American journalist and author Jimmy Breslin said, 'When you leave New York you ain’t going anywhere.' Andrew might be heading back to L.A. soon, but he'll always be an East-Coaster at heart. @andrewgallo

Xing was looking pretty in pink when we caught her outside CSM where she currently studies. We loved the mix of textures and layers, from her fluffy blush-shaded Cath Kidson coat to the multi-levelled hem of her slip dress. But mainly we had our eye on her sparkly Margiela-clad feet! Akin to a pair of space boots, yet reminiscent of Twiggy's style. She believes in mixing and matching both designer and vintage 'because each brand has something interesting and we should embrace them all.' Originally from China, she loves exploring Brick Lane's vintage stores. We can see why - her style spans decades; from that 90's-style shift dress to the 60's shoes yet there's a contemporary quality. We think her time-travelling style is stellar! @Hinghushen

We couldn't fail to spot Kyota's Raf Simons top with its heart-emblazoned message across his chest and the impressive reverse-layering of his jumper over his Uniqlo puffer. He told us that it was his first time in NY and he loves it, especially Soho, the location of his favourite brands such as Raf Simons and ACNE. But it's not just the shops that he loves; he thinks New Yorkers are warm, kind and fun. We explained that not many people say that and he said that it's much easier to interact with people here than his hometown, Tokyo. His music passions include Katy Perry, but his favourite band is the famous One Ok Rock from Japan. We don't think Kyota needs any banners; his effervescence for life shines from within. But that outfit is so good; perhaps this is one occasion when it's ok to wear his heart on his sleeve. @kyotamaruyama

A life in uniform doesn't have to be dull, at least not when you are Olivier. We thought he looked like a vision in camel as he dashed down South Molton Street, his coat flowing behind like a cape. Was he on a special mission we asked, 'just my lunch break', he said, explaining that he's from a town near Brussels but now works in London as a sales assistant at Joseph. In fact, his entire outfit was Joseph, his uniform apparently, but it was that coat that he was most proud of, 'It was a sample; the only one in that colour, the final design was produced in grey', he told us. One day he hopes to set up his own menswear line. If his style sense is anything to go by, he'll be flying in no time.
