At its helm is tour de force Margie Aguilar, whose background as a producer for Spanish-language network Univision led her to found the firm. Here, Aguilar explains to D CEO how her creative work influences her day-to-day style. Read on:

WHAT I DO

“ISP Creative is a creative house and studio. I manage the team, projects, client relationships, and creative direction.”

STYLE ICON

“I admire Olivier Rousteing of Balmain. His clothing is very powerful and structured. It reminds me a bit of my personality. I don’t take myself too seriously, but when projects fall behind, I can be a sergeant.” 

ON THE JOB

“Production teams have historically dressed in black, similar to the stagehands in a theater. We want our work to shine. I like wearing black and white at work because you can dress it up or down.”

FASHION INSPIRATION

“Cultural sentiment ultimately dictates my design aesthetics.”

STYLE DEFINED

“Bold and timeless. I like to combine classy looks of the past with some bold and unexpected elements of today.”

FASHION ESSENTIALS

“My courage and camera—even if it’s just my phone camera. I always have a camera in reach to capture beautiful moments.”

GO-TO LOOK

“My looks emulate the industrial nature of production. It’s a lot of utilitarian-fashion with pockets, zippers, and latches.”

HOW I ACCESSORIZE

“I love Tiffany’s HardWear collections. I’m fascinated with their recent campaigns, including “Not Your Mother’s Tiffany” and how the company has collaborated with Beyoncé and Jay-Z to capture a new generation.”

WEEKEND LOOK

“When I’m with my family, I embrace all the bright colors that come with my Latin heritage.”

FAVORITE STORE

“I enjoy visiting Alice + Olivia; it has fun, bright, and beautiful looks.”
