Q: Do you prefer street style fashion or runway fashion?
A: A combination of both.

Q: When and how did you become interested in fashion, and where do you find your inspiration?
A: I think in a way I was always interested in fashion, but wouldn't really admit it to myself because I didn't have the confidence to express what I liked. In fact, I wasn't quite sure what I liked. When I started looking more specifically at designers, and simultaneously was learning through art school all about art and design I found a new way to look at fashion loved it. Once I found my style, and knew exactly what I wanted to portray and find in my fashion finds I couldn't stop looking at fashion constantly. I'm still trying to build and grow in this aspect because it takes work to find clothes that reflect your personality and fit your body well at the same time. I think my inspirations range from the different fashion designers out there that I admire, like Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, Phillip Lim, Marni, Proenza Schouler, and many more. I also find inspiration from everything, to illustrations, movies, music videos, cultures, street culture, characters, color palettes, even social media and fashion blogs.

Q: What are your favorite fashion blogs? Magazines?

Q: What do you love about fashion? Not love?
A: I love that it's so flexible and it is immediately related to identity. You can show your style and what you are drawn to through your clothes, as well as the shapes you want your body to be cut into or reflect - and that is art. I guess I don't love how there's a slight underestimation when it comes to some people not looking at fashion design as art, because that is exactly what it is, and it's a fun type of art too.

Q: Your favorite designers & brands?
A: Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, Phillip Lim, Marni, Kenzo, Edun, Proenza Schouler, Armani, Maison Margiela, Mango, Zara, Calvin Klein, Valentino, Thom Browne, Raf Simons

A: My goal is to become a creative director or curator of some sort.

Q: What are your other interests? How do you spend your spare time?
A: I'm an illustrator, so that's how I spend most of my time. I'm constantly making new illustrations and making stuff. I also have a great interest in makeup.
