Marie-Caroline Moir has got herself a big old collection of hats: poetry-writing hats, English-teaching hats, knitwear-designing hats, singing-in-the-2006-Ford-Focus hats, and fashion-styling hats.  She’s delighted to add a Style Editor hat to the heap. Especially inspired by the overlap of visual and literary art forms, Caroline hopes to inject that frenetic, holistic aesthetic into City Arts‘ freshly minted style section.
