WHY IS FASHION IMPORTANT?
“Fashion is important because it’s a form of expression and a way to stand out as an individual. What you wear can affect your mood, confidence and personality, and I think that’s powerful.”
IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN HISTORY, WHAT FASHION ERA WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE IN?
“It’s a toss between the 80s and the 50s! I was a kid in the 80s, so I got a little taste of it, but I would have loved to be an adult then because I do love its fashion. Even the over-the-top stuff like acid wash and the giant pants, though I love it most for its bold colors and shoulder pads. On the flip side, I adore the polish and sophistication of 50s fashion. High-waist skirts, cropped pants and fitted tops. Luckily these styles are relevant today and I definitely wear outfits that are inspired by both decades.”
WHAT ITEM WOULD YOU NEVER PART FROM?
“I have a pair of brown and black lace-up boots that I’ve had for over 10 years and I refuse to get rid of them. I was told they are ‘old school’ riding boots though they look more like understated combat boots. They are perfectly worn and my favorites! To be honest, I rarely wear them now, but sometimes they are the perfect complement to a look and that’s why I love them.”
