Be Influenced by Gilt This Fashion Week

This Fashion Week, Gilt has been working closely with four up-and-coming fashion influencers, all of whom have a unique sense of style, representative of their individual personalities and character. From an upper east side socialite turned businesswoman to a glossy magazine fashion editor, from a Brooklyn soul singer to two Canadian bloggers who invade the closets of fashion's elite, these women have taken the fashion industry by storm.  All elegant, innovative and chic, these fashion influencers have every style covered, and I was lucky enough to get an insiders look into their top picks from Gilt's inventory and fashion's most coveted trends. 
Each style influencer will curate a sale on during Fashion Week, offering up insider pieces that will help shoppers get the look.  The sale goes live on Monday, September 12th at 12pm EST. so you won't be able to see what's involved in the sale until then, but ZlataThoughts is giving you a little sneak peak today!
