Pre-Loved Podcast: Liisa Jokinen
Let’s talk about today’s guest -- today we’re speaking with Liisa Jokinen. Liisa is a 45 years old Finnish-born entrepreneur based in NYC. She’s the co-founder of Gem vintage search app and also works as a street style photographer running NYC Looks, and working for The Cut during the NYFWs. Liisa started street style photography in 2005 with Hel Looks -- Helsinki Looks -- which was one of the first independent street style blogs in the world, and now again it is one of the few left! I launched NYC Looks three years ago when we moved to NYC.
We talk about Liisa’s journey with vintage style, street style photography, street style inspiration from Finland to NYC, and her favorite vintage fashion markets. All this and more on this new episode. Let’s dive in!
