Managing Fashion Editor
Writer and stylist Brie Thalmann has logged more than a decade in the local fashion industry. A pompom and high-waist-jean addict, when she’s not making giant origami or spray painting tropical leaves for photo shoots, she’s out hunting for ceramics and crafting it up. Her closet staples: artsy prints and easy-going silhouettes.
Senior Fashion Editor
Stacey Makiya was meant for fashion ever since putting on a shiny velour jumpsuit at age 4. She’s interviewed fashion’s top dawgs including Tory Burch and Diane von Furstenberg, styled more features than the ridiculous number of shoes she owns, and has learned more than she could’ve imagined from the local creatives she’s worked with.
A compulsive project-starter, Marisa Heung’s apartment is usually cluttered with yarn, jewelry-making supplies, paints and various half-completed ideas. For her, fashion boils down to two questions: “Will I still wear it in six months?” and “Is it comfortable enough to sleep in?” She is often seen wandering Downtown sporting an aloha shirt, skinny jeans and sneakers.
Natalie Schack is a design-loving, hiking-obsessed freelance writer born in the Island’s central plains, currently living in the city. When she isn’t scouting new fashion or crafting puns, she spends her free time daydreaming, yoga-ing, and dusting off her pith helmet for the next adventure life throws her way.
