WORDS BY NATALIE YIASSOUMI
The seasoned editor and marketing veteran offers everything from shoe candy to invaluable career advice on her page.
Today’s Follow Friday is dedicated to a true veteran in both the fashion and shoe worlds.
Gabriele Hackworthy is a highly recognized and respected face within the industry, having over 20 years experience as an editor and fashion director at publications from around the world we’ve all turned to at some point or another for inspiration, ranging from the Australian, Chinese and Japanese editions of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar U.K. and Porter magazine.
After her role as editorial fashion director at Net-a-Porter, Gabriele moved on to become the senior vice president of global brand communications and marketing at Jimmy Choo, meaning Gabriele was behind everything from the curating of the Choo collections, to the brand’s advertising campaigns, collaborations and social media. She now runs her own luxury brand consultancy.
Throughout her stellar career, Hackworthy naturally amassed a shoe collection of dreams and she shares glimpses of her shoe closet on her feed, with regular #FeetUpFriday pictures from her desk, spotlighting everything from the dreamy Jimmy Choo ‘Sacora’ pearl-embellished heels and glamorous mesh stilettos, to Attico mules and classic Chanel slingbacks. By regularly posting old season classics, she is also using her shoe snaps to encourage everyone to shop their own closets and buy less.
You’ll also find her sharing scenic holiday snaps in Zimmerman dresses, taking on TikTok challenges with her equally chic daughter, and attending fashion events across the globe – so humor, good fashion and escapism all come together on her feed.
Apart from the glitz, the glam and the shoe candy, Gabriele’s page is also a source of invaluable information as she draws on her own experience to share career advice for those wanting to work in creative fields – we highly recommend the career chat on her Instagram TV with Dr. Maryam Zamani – and to amplify current issues like female empowerment and diversity.
