  • For a fashion person, Erin Wasson doesn't shop much for garments. "I shop a lot more for furniture than I do for clothes," she says. "I much prefer going to an antique shop full of obscurities." []

"So I wasn't doing anything dissimilar by taking all the American classics and making them relevant for today." []
