LOUISE ROE IN CHARLESTON
The British style authority experiences the height of Southern charm
If there is a magazine, website, or television show devoted to fashion, Louise Roe has probably written, hosted, or doled out advice for it. Suffice it to say, the British-born fashion journalist and model knows a thing or two about style, and she’s now funneled her knowledge into Front Roe, a new book filled with helpful tips on everything from buying vintage clothing to decorating your home. “It draws on all my years of working in the industry, behind the scenes and on shoots—all the tips I’ve picked up,” says Roe, who will soon embark on a multi-city book tour. Though based in L.A., the 33 year old often finds herself on the road, chasing trends from London to New York to Charleston, South Carolina, where she attended the city’s fashion week in March. Having first visited it when she was six years old, Roe had been eager to return. “I had this hazy memory of horses and sorbet-colored houses,” she recalls, noting that she was happy to find they both still existed. “There’s a real sense of history in Charleston, which, coming from Europe, I’m very drawn to.” Here, she reveals her snapshots from the trip.
