The MNY Spotlight

Meet Janie Pierrepont, NYC-based fashion influencer

Introduce yourself!

Hello! I currently live in New York City with my husband Ned and little mini dachshund Posie. I grew up in New Jersey and moved to NYC after I graduated from Wake Forest where I studied communication and film studies. I began my career in media working at Discovery Communications but always had a creative entrepreneurial spirit particularly in fashion. I then transitioned to working for the footwear company, Soludos where I managed the CX team and then just recently began working for myself!

How did you first start building a following on instagram?

I honestly am not exactly sure! Ned and I were married almost two years ago and I think being a bride can definitely be overwhelming especially when it comes to searching for your dress and other various looks. After my wedding, people started reaching out to me asking for ideas or suggestions on where to shop for brides!

How would you describe your style? Who is your biggest fashion inspiration?

I really love classic pieces and prefer to invest in quality fabrics and garments that are timeless in my closet. My style is a mix of classic & traditional with an element of color and flair. My biggest fashion inspiration is my Mom!

What exciting projects or collaborations do you have coming up that you can cue us in on?

I do love exploring new restaurants and destinations and I have a few exciting collaborations in the spring that I am excited about that incorporate some travel!

When Vogue covered your wedding, you mentioned that Carolyn  Bessette-Kennedy was your style inspiration for your wedding weekend. What is it about her style you were looking to emulate?

Yes! I love her iconic sleek wedding gown and wanted something similar for mine as well. I envisioned a minimal silhouette with small detail and sleek cuts.

If you could swap wardrobes with anyone, who would it be and why?

I would love to swap wardrobes with Maria Orden. She is a European based designer and always wears the chicest matching suits with bold & colorful patterns and prints.

What draws you to the Mestiza brand?

I really love that Mestiza is a female founded brand incorporating classic silhouettes with high quality fabrics that are timeless.
