Tastemaker:

T¯ast•ak•er 

noun

a person who decides or influences what is or will become fashionable.

 

As Buffalo grows, so does its personal style. Young creative professionals are shaping the way we look at art, design, and music, inspiring the entire community to see the world in a different way. These are the future seekers, dreamers, and doers. From lifestyle to fashion to culture, here are some of the individuals who are defining the new Western New York.
