A: I love how diverse it can be, I love that it's always changing, a lot more people are conscious of what they're wearing, I don't love the mainstream tack that you can sometimes find, the stuff that makes me cringe or I can walk down a street and see the same outfit on at least a dozen people, do not love.

I have way more other brands that I'm currently loving but a lot of them aren't necessarily fashion or are small store owners so aren't really classed as designers or brands.
