When she's not tucked up in vintage silk PJs or fashion-drawing at her Greenwich Village home, Walton travels the globe with Schuman, seeking out outfit inspiration from as far afield as the grand palazzos of Italy to the sprawling flea markets in France.I was a tomboy growing up, so when I go back to visit teachers in grade school, they're always surprised I work in fashion now. When I graduated I got a job as an assistant to a knitwear designer who was big on embroidery in New York. I started bringing a sketchpad on the train and that was how I started to get better at illustrating. I sort images based on colour, lighting, patterns and trends. What has Scott taught you about street style photography?
We got really good at watching her walk around, striking up conversations and closing great deals.
I was living in Southern Brooklyn and the job was in Queens. Since we started working together, we have pretty much been together every single day. I found I was always extending myself working for others but never really knew if they appreciated all that I gave in my job.
There is something really nice about working closely with someone you care about on so many levels.
But you do not see the romance in this style of dressing and that is what Italian women do well. I am working with an English jewellery designer, Monica Vinader.
She makes beautiful jewellery and I love the minimalism. For me, it is about being authentic in what works well. I love simple, tonal nude heels and still wear them.
