Rossana is from Italy, but we caught up with her in Bricklane having a walk with her friend. She is a nanny at the moment, but she's planning to apply for an English Literature BA course. In the meantime, she's trying to absorb the 'Londoner style' as much as possible! She was really proud of her bag, by the brand "Comme des F*ckdown", which apparently is produced in south Italy in the same place where she's from. She says she knows the designer. So there's got to be a few perks there! What can we tell you, Rosanna, we love your bag and we love it, even more, when fashion has a sense of humour! @weirdie_ross

We caught up with Yalda and Somen in Rome as they embraced the summer sun in their floaty dresses. They are from Denmark and were visiting this beautiful city as a family. Yalda told us that Rome is one of her favourite cities as it's full of history and that inspires her. She is currently studying to be a dentist in her home country. Somen is also a dental hygiene student; she loves fashion with Zara and Asos being her go-to brands. They seem to have a shared passion for their occupation and their style. They know how to work the high street brands for a high-end look, and we bet they'll always have a glowing smile to match!@The_yaqubis @somenyaqubi

There was an element of retro-futurism to Alevtina's look, and yet she is also so now too, sitting composed as she sips her coffee crème in Paris. She's a Fashion Designer from Russia and is inspired by Alessandro Michele who was appointed the creative director of Gucci in January 2015. His first shows for the brand created a media storm and he's a fan of gender fluidity sometimes placing his male models in female clothes. He said, " I love taking prints, embroidery, appliques - precious things that seem to be from another time - and using them to create a contemporary, new story." Seems like you guys are on the same page Alevtina! @alevtinavgustova

Annabelle bought her gorgeous dress in a vintage store in New York. Perhaps her homeland in the Philippines inspires the colourful hues. We love the oversized look with her classic Comme des Garcons bag; only Rei Kawakubo could make a paper bag look this good! As well as the vintage look, Annabelle explained that she also loves all the sunglasses by Céline, we discussed the quality, the sharp and impeccable design. She definitely has a love of all aspects of the art world from to conceptual to clothes and in that painterly creation, it shows! @annabelle___bl

We love the contrasting colours in Georgette's look. She's Cameroonian and half Austrian. She explained that she was with her class to visit London for a week. Georgette has career aspirations on many levels; when she graduates she would like to do social work abroad with a goal to eventually work with children and to participate in or create projects to help those in need. However, there's another side to her life that is just as contrasting as her colour palette; when she's not being a good Samaritan she's busy modelling and she hopes in the future it will lead to a focus on the music industry. Author Richelle E. Goodrich said, “The humanitarian is a treasure hunter seeking gems of remedy and appreciation.” While the world of fashion and music can be glamorous and alluring, it's good to see that Georgette navigates it with some alternative gems in mind! @Still_georgette

We met Manisha in South Molten Street when we spotted that smiley Hill and Friends bag. Manisha is born and bred in London with Indian heritage. She was out to do some shopping and generally looking at brands for her new business as a personal stylist. It all happened organically; she started helping out mums at the school gates who needed something to wear for their nights out. She would lend them pieces from her own wardrobe and before long it became a business. Manisha is a great supporter of the British high street and always looks for little twists and interesting details. Her goal is to help all women to feel better in their look and to show them that style is affordable and not just for the rich. Now that's something to smile about! @stylebymanisha

We spotted Prang in polka dot chic in Paris; she was heading out of Céline store with a friend. She loves fashion, and as a hobby, she has started a business on Instagram where she sells dresses and summer basics, no wonder; Prang is from Thailand, she might be used to hot weather but she likes to visit the city of love to get inspired and seek out new brands and creators. Her classic dress and boots lent her a Parisian look; she was wearing Le Spec and a Chanel bag, so she fitted right in - Voilà! @lovegramshop

We noticed Keely in that beautiful, long, elegant white dress walking around Soho. We love the yellow shoulder bag which popped against her outfit and she added a bit of edge with her Doc Martens! She was shopping that day, searching perhaps for some fashion inspiration at one of her favourite stores: The Kooples or Zadig & Voltaire. Keely is praying that the current long dress craze is more than just a trend so that she can keep wearing them indefinitely. We hope so too Keely as you look stunning in them! @keely1024

We saw Mei walking down Commercial Street, and we were amazed by her stunning accessories, which we discovered were her designs. She’s had her shop for 18 years and started in Spitalfields market before it was regenerated. Mei wants to bring the spirit of old Spitalfields back. She is working on a project entitled 'Silk Series' which aims to reinstate the original designers that used to have stalls there. On the 13th of June, they are having a big event to celebrate these artists and designers so Traffique will be there! Mei's brand is called Victimfashionst. She makes upcycled clothes and accessories. All of the brands she was wearing are designers that will be part of her project. We admire Mei's dedication to the environment and to her fellow artists. Sometimes looking back and appreciating what you have is progress! @victimfashionst
