Born and raised in Los Angeles' Los Feliz / Silverlake area surrounded by friends and family in the film, music, and fashion industries, Saskia is a true LA girl. Following
a two-year stint abroad to study at the London College of Fashion, Saskia recently returned to her hometown, where you can find her shopping
up a storm on Melrose Avenue, dancing the night away in West Hollywood's
newest clubs, or scoping out the city's regenerated Downtown area.
The Australian travel writer has run out fingers to count the amount of times work and play have drawn her to the City of Angels. From whirlwind press junkets to trans-continental road trips and dedicated stopovers to allow for a frantic day of vintage shopping on Melrose Avenue between connecting flights, she's seen LA from just about every angle. But it's never quite enough.
