In Rent the Runway’s newest “Closet Close-Ups” video, Yigal Azrouël shares his super-sweet fashion inspiration: his mom. “She’s still beautiful,” he says.

In addition to swooning over that — and his charming accent — we love peeking into his showroom to see the bold patterns and refined pieces he has ready for fall. “Fall 2012 collection is a mix of feminine and masculine, it’s a bit more rock ‘n’ roll but more lady looking,” he explains. Stars like Drew Barrymore, Minka Kelly and Claire Danes already love the looks.

Check out the clip above for more from Azrouël — including why he chooses not to be trendy.
