What interests you most about fashion?
I love developing my style by mixing vintage/retro with current pieces. It’s like collecting rare books or beanie babies –it’s such a thrill and a challenge to find something you don’t already have and the crazier it is, the more fun it is to put together an outfit. Clothing is wearable art in the best possible way and your collection isn’t hiding in a climate controlled room or sitting in clear boxes on the shelf, but something you get to share visually with everyone every day.
