Jenna Lyons has become an influential style ambassador for J Crew as their Creative Director....establishing yet another take on street style mixing day pieces with evening pieces, menswear pieces with girlish pieces along with the addition of Thriftshop and Army surplus items tossed into the mix with a sure eye for oddball ( but GREAT!)proportion combos and fresh combinations of fabrics, prints, textures and bold statement accessories.Like the iconic YSL back in 1960's Paris, Miss Lyons has changed the look of the streets of NYC.

“You have to make quick decisions,” Jenna Lyons, the president and creative director of J.Crew, told BoF. “Ultimately, fashion is all about gut anyway — there’s no science to what this should look like or that should look like or how many times you can redraw that or resketch that or redo that catalogue cover. The fact of the matter is, either it grabs you or it doesn’t.”
