Christine Centenera knows fashion.
She knows what works on her, she knows what works on the most well-known of celebrities (or the most, if Kim Kardashian’s your number one) and she knows, probably, what looks best on you.
As Vogue Australia‘s fashion director – formerly Harper’s Bazaar’s fashion editor – Centenera’s reputation in the fashion industry is an excellent one. In 2011, she served as the styling consultant for Kanye West‘s women’s collection. She has dressed the likes of Cate Blanchett, Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, Gisele Bundchen, Kim Kardashian, Miranda Kerr, Lara Stone, Kate Upton and Gemma Ward.
Kim Kardashian has very publicly sung her praises.
“She really just knows every accessory to tie an outfit together. Sometimes people can be really simple and look great. She has definitely accessorised and just puts different things together that you wouldn’t think of but they just look so good on her,” she said in 2015.
Indeed, that’s what they’ve done.
This passing week, Centenera and her partner of 10 years, Australian fashion designer Josh Goot, launched Wardrobe.NYC. The idea behind the brand, the duo told The New York Times, is for it to be like the antidote to the world of fast fashion we currently live in.
