The retail-packed area of Soho—slow-moving tourists and all—is a multifaceted playground for rebellious go-getter consumers who aren’t afraid to throw some plastic and let their freak flags fly. That’s why we synched up with 24-year-old designer Danielle Guizio, who makes threads for budget-conscious irreverent folks—think graphic tees that read SERIOUSLY, FUCK YOU and PERVERT, plus sexy numbers like All Tied Up bodysuits. Yeah, the girl goes for it. “Gathering style inspiration from fashionable pedestrians is just a bonus when shopping in Soho,” says Guizio, who suggests everything from a faux-leather handbag she owns to a top that’s “super girly and conservative.”
