Our favorite New York retail scene micro-celebrity,
Marc Jacobs Maison Martin Margiela salesgirl and budding headband designer Ginny Branch, has gone international. She's profiled in the latest issue of the Philippine Star. In the Q&A, we learn more about Ginny's family, and her personal style. In response to a question about her hair color: "My hair is a dark auburn color naturally. Little old ladies inspire me. Six years ago I wished for my hair to turn silver and I’ve been coloring it so ever since. I don’t have style icons, just muses. Heroines in children’s books. Young girls and elderly women. Silver foxes. Scandinavian porcelain doll-like girls. Flappers and Victorian silhouettes. Sarah Sophie flicker." [Philippine Star; Previously]
