influencers: Hamish Bowles

11:30 AM


This man is one of the most respected guys in the fashion world and yet he is relatively unknown to the masses. In contrast to Anna Wintour who represents the Fahion World and Vogue magazine to an extensive audience, Hamish Bowles caters mostly to those in the know. Through his position as International Editor at Large for Vogue magazine, he has become one of the most respected authorities in the world of fashion and interior design.



Hamish Bowles attended Britain's most famous College for everything fashion, the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He has always had a knack for the history of fashion and the relation between fashion and art. Therefore he is an expert and collector of Haute Couture pieces from different centuries and knows about their history and production like none other. After a brief stint at London’s Harpers & Queen magazine, he started his path at Vogue over 20 years ago in 1992. Since then he has worked his way up from Style Editor to European Editor at Large and eventually became International Editor at Large.

His extensive knowledge on fashion and art has even landed him the job as creative consultant at New York's No. 1 museum, the MOMA! There he was responsible for some incredible exhibitions like the critically acclaimed “Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years—Selections from the John F. Kennedy Library Museum” or “Balenciaga: Spanish Master”, both displaying completely different angles on fashion.



In addition to these shows, he was responsible for writing accompanying books on Jackie Kennedy and Balenciaga as well as great pieces on Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior.

More recently, he was able to land some small rolesin movies and TV-shows such as Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette or Gossip Girl which shows how mulit-talented this man really is!

I love the fact, that even though Bowle's look on fashion seems a little old-fashioned at first glance, he is not only a teacher of fashion but moreover he is able to connect younger generations to the origins of styles and trends that would be forgotten otherwise. As a matter of fact, Bowles does not shy away from modern fashion and is also very present on the Internet, for example with his column “The Hamishsphere” on Vogue.com.

Hamish Bowles, is a modern Dandy that knows how to dress extremely well and has a strong affection for the beauty of fashion and art. Without people like him the fashion scene would much more boring!
