You probably haven't heard of Silence Is Golden, but you will soon. Kelvin Tam, the Sydney-based designer behind the brand, just met with some very important stores in New York this past week, and the line should debut on American shelves soon. Tam, who was until recently an architect, has paired structured proportions with feminine fabrics for his Fall '08 collection, mostly in black and white with shocks of electric blue and yellow in between - not to mention some pieces in leather without even the slightest trace of "tough chick". But the real reason we're so into the clothes? The white cashmere coat-dress. We'd wear it everyday, even if it means eating meals from inside a plastic bubble to avoid spilling. Now if only the clothes came with the salty blonde hair and Australian beach shack like in the look book, then we could justify buying it all.

Fashionista Turns Five! Fashionista's First Editor, Faran Krentcil, Takes a Look Back
Believe it or not, Fashionista turns five years old this month. Which is, you know, pretty old in blog years. To celebrate our big bday, we've asked all of Fashionista's former editors (in chronological order that's Faran Krentcil, Natalie Hormilla, Abby Gardner, Britt Aboutaleb, and Lauren Sherman) to reflect back on their time at Fashionista from the highs (seeing a Chanel show) to the lows (being chewed out by Arianne Phillips for leaking her fashion week plans and costing her a client). First up, the girl who started it all, the inimitable Faran Krentcil, who is now Nylon's digital director. To Begin With: Everything. Some people think I started Fashionista from my bedroom with a pinch of magic, an overdose of ambition, and some Skittles. That's not really what happened. Not even close.
