Halima Aden & Carine Roitfeld On Fearless Diversity In Fashion

1200x600 (2)

Two worlds collided, or rather were brought back together, when Halima Aden and Carine Roitfeld paired up for a talk at Business of Fashion VOICES.

One of Carine's favorite trends of the moment is stirrup pants, which have recently gained popularity with labels including Gucci, Attico, Balenciaga—and street style stars everywhere.
