Here’s a look at seven Manhattan women who are defining fashion on their own terms.

A Perfect Composition
Voltz Clarke gallerina Blair Clarke applies her artful eye to everything.

Fashion is a personal passion for me because... it’s the best way to communicate with the world without opening one’s mouth.

My fashion philosophy is... comfortable—yet I always toss in an unexpected twist!

The best style advice I ever received was... be yourself!

My favorite designers are... Veronica Beard, Chanel, Céline, Dolce & Gabbana, Rag & Bone, Milly, Isabel Marant and The Kooples.

In regard to jewelry, I opt for... minimal. Homemade friendship bracelets, Kelly Rutherford Star necklaces and Annina Vogel charm ensembles, Catbird and Paige Novick earrings.

In NYC, I shop at... Bergdorf, Barneys, Fivestory, Brandy Melville, Saks Off 5th and Zara.

I sometimes coordinate my outfit with... funky knee socks and dangling hair feathers.
