When you think of New York, a few things come to mind: Saturday Night Live, Central Park, Rockefeller Centre and of course, Radio City Music Hall. Music is such a big part of the Big Apple, and with exports like Jay-Z to the Beastie Boys, NYC is the hub for music aficionados. In part two of our Texture muse feature, we’ll introduce you to cool girl Alix Brown. Photographed by Kristin Gallegos and hair styled by our friend Wesley O’Meara, be inspired by this effortlessly chic music ingenue.
