Opening a boutique with staying power in a city like NYC is no small feat, but Claire Distenfeld was up for the challenge. She opened her Upper East Side fashion mecca, Fivestory, last spring - and one year later, it's still going strong, hailed by critics as one of the best curated high-fashion boutiques in the city. The multi-story townhouse carries everything from Balmain to Carven, but no matter what she puts in her store, her goal is to always make women feel good, telling us, "I'm never gonna buy pieces that won't make a woman feel good. She can feel different, she can feel unique, but you're not gonna see a garbage bag with holes in my store." Click through to see how Claire Distenfeld was able to use her background in fine arts to make a name for herself in the cutthroat fashion industry, and stand out from the rest. More>>

Artist Marcel Duchamp once said: “I am interested in ideas, not merely in visual products.” Duchamp’s seminal creations and thinking were instrumental in art’s paradigm shift over the next 100 years. It may be too soon to tell, but Leandra Medine, aka the Manrepeller, a fellow detractor of retinal art, seems to be on a parallel path, encouraging us to mindfully contemplate our own personal fashion choices, rather than mindlessly follow others’.
This year, Time Magazine named Manrepeller.com one of the top 25 blogs in the world (that’s the entire world, not just the fashion world!) – but it’s her innovative ideas on fashion and the business she’s gotten herself into offline that has caught our attention. With countless collaborations including a jewelry line that sells out in seconds, a new clothing line that will surely do the same, several ad campaigns with brands like Bumble & Bumble, and even a book of essays in the works - she’s become the thinking woman’s fashion icon of the moment, if not the future. She’s inspiring women far beyond the fashion industry to love who they are…with or without their man’s validation. In two short years she has redefined what it means to be a “fashion blogger” and, at 23, she has no plans of slowing down. As Hall and Oates almost once crooned: “Watch out here she comes, she’s a… MANREPELLER!”
