Is fashion about beauty, or novelty?  Is taste a matter of opinion, or discernment? Why do we care so much about what we put on our bodies?  Better question: why wouldn’t we?  All this and and more at The Tastemaker: a place for deep thoughts on trivial things, and an exploration of what we say and how we say it via our sartorial language.

Sarah Lockhart is the founder of Tastemaker.  With a background in journalism, she’s done a little writing in the realm of arts & culture at Patron Magazine, The Dallas Morning News, and more.  Forever preoccupied with the big questions (Can the rise of your jeans say something about your soul?), she’s pretty certain that, when it comes to fashion, there’s more than meets the eye.

In the Age of Social Media, the definition of a tastemaker, in its strictest sense, is now more universal than ever.

  1. a person who decides or influences what is or will become fashionable.
