Brooke Kao

American University student who writes a popular fashion blog

“Brooke is a very good painter, and she instinctively gets how shapes and textures fit together. You can see it in how she mixes layers and colors. She wears a lot of consignment and vintage pieces from the flapper and mod eras, but she never looks like she stepped out of another decade. She always looks modern.”

—Andrew Peng, friend and Richard Montgomery High School student
