Makeda Saggau-Sackey is the publisher and editor of the Washington, DC based online fashion magazine The Glamazon Diaries. As a forerunner of DC’s premiere virtual fashion site, Makeda embodies the resilience, creativity and passion of Washington style, attitude and culture, fusing fashion, philanthropy and politics to illustrate to outsiders that DC’s got style. She is native of Ghana, West Africa and calls Washington home. The Glamazon Diaries serves as a daily style bible for Washingtonians looking for the latest fashion news and trends, beauty and lifestyle products and how to find of-the-moment styles. The second mission of the Glamazon Diaries is to offer outsiders a birds-eye view of Washington life, style and philanthropic culture. Now in its third year, Makeda is expanding the Glamazon Diaries to other cities, creating Glamazons one city at a time.

Favorite Designers: Giambatista Valli – Every piece of Valli I own is timeless. He understands how to make a woman feel beautiful and feminine in her own skin with the cut and style of his dresses. Donna Karan, she is quintessential New York. She designs for a woman, celebrating her strengths and masking her weaknesses with clothes that feel luxurious and take my breath away. Oscar de la Renta because my dream is to own one of his gowns. Alexander McQueen for his avant garde and ground breaking designs.

Vintage: 70’s Kansai Yamamoto for the eleborate detailed jackets. He made David Bowie fabulous with his jackets and kimonos during his reign. Yves Saint Laurent is a recent obsession. I’ve been collecting vintage YSL via Ebay for his celebration of women. I am still on the lookout for one of his Le Smoking jackets, pants and safari jackets from the 80s. He really empowered women to dare to wear anything they wanted, especially pants.
