Tastemaker, fashion editor, designer, model, and business savant: if this sounds like too many roles for one woman to take on without losing her cool – or her Choos – think again. Caroline Issa, the globetrotting wonder-woman and Executive Fashion Director of TANK Magazine (where high-art meets high fashion), makes it all look easy.
