W Magazine's Fashion Market Director Reveals Her Closet Confessions
The latest tastemaker to be featured in leading designer e-retailer Bluefly's popular Closet Confessions is W Magazine's fashion market and accessories director, Karla Martinez de Salas. A regular style star at Fashion Week, Karla has an impeccable eye that combines editorial vision with a Southwestern flair courtesy of her Mexican and Arizonian roots. The Closet Confessions episode features Karla's SoHo apartment filled with beautiful pieces from her travels and her equally drool-worthy closet. She has also curated an assortment of designer must-haves for fall at Bluefly's sister site, Belle & Clive.
With years of experience at trend-setting glossies like Elle, Vogue, Interview, T Magazine, and now at W, it's no surprise Karla Martinez de Salas is a lover of all things style. "I love style as a whole-not just fashion," she explains. "The way you live, your furniture, the way you travel, the way you eat-all of that kind of comes together. I really love translating that art into the magazine." Her personal and eclectic style is shown on to extend from a giraffe-legged bowl found in South Africa to a custom wedding gown designed by Carolina Herrera.
As a fixture at every major Fashion Week around the world, Karla has tips on how to survive long days and constant traveling. Her busy day must-haves? A bright lipstick, a moisturizer, and comfortable shoes. "During Fashion Week, if you're not comfortable in your shoes, you can't walk in your shoes," she says. "And no matter how amazing your outfit is, if you're not comfortable in it, it doesn't work."
