Lyn Slater is the Accidental Icon.

While pursuing a career as a college professor and taking courses at a New York fashion school, Lyn was searching for something to combine her existing skills and interests while expressing her creativity.

Around 4 years ago she started her blog Accidental Icon. Lyn labels herself a cultural influencer and has a large international following, traveling globally in her role as Accidental Icon. Her instagram has more than 557,000 followers.

Lyn has modeled for brands such as Valentino and Mango and has been profiled extensively in the fashion world. One of her first ever profiles was on 40+Style and you can read her style interview here.

I spoke to her in my apartment in New York when I was there and I think you will love this interview!
