Every day she’s hustling
Briony Smith, 30, is a fashion writer, editor and stylist. She grew up dreaming of working in magazines and The Martlet student newspaper at the University of Victoria got her that first byline. After finishing a Bachelor of Arts in English and Creative Writing, she did plenty of less-than-thrilling work. These days she covers emerging style in Toronto, contributing to The Grid, ELLE Canada, Chatelaine.com, MuchMusic and others. The money isn’t great, but she’s loves the hustle.
Tell us who you are and what you do.
