Sartorial Elegance

Today we’re gonna talk about the 26-year-old illustrator and current fashion director at The Sartorialist who has mastered sophisticated cuteness with a love of vintage, Pinterest, and of course, a perfectly curated Instagram, Jenny M. Walton. She can be spotted on the streets of New York, Paris, and Milan, and you can see a lot of her artwork that she has been doing for couple of years. From being an illustrator for events in Miu Miu, Prada, Bottega Veneta and a whole lot of other brands, you name it, she’s done it! 


Once she told Vogue that her inspiration came from old movies. Joan Crawford, in “Mildred Pierce”, who plays a mother completely devoted to her daughter, or Bette Davis in “Now Voyager”, in which she plays an ugly duckling transformed into an elegant swan.


She grew up in a small town in New Jersey. “At school, most of my classmates’ parents were farmers. Our house was surrounded by cornfields and farm animals. And we didn’t have a TV. It was picturesque, boring… and light years away from fashion! But my mother would take my two sisters and me to the markets to choose fabrics. She taught us to sew and embroider our own clothes.”

Her current job in Sartorialist is responsible for a wide variety of tasks that are directly associated to fashion coordination, management, and attending fashion shows. Also referred as fashion coordinators with the idea of creating a two-way dialogue about the world of fashion and its relationship to daily life. Creating editorial content of what they see on the street that echoes to how fashion designers look at it. Meanwhile at Markers and Microns she devours herself to fashion illustrations, working with drawing pens and copic. Multi-talented and fashionable? Check.

Now she is engaged with the man behind The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman! We can only assume that will be one well-dressed and well-shot wedding. Can’t wait!
