DESCRIBE YOUR CLOSET IN 3 WORDS.
EDITED, RELAXED, CHIC.
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS INSPIRE YOUR CREATIVITY.
I am constantly inspired by my surroundings. Whether that is during my morning commutes on the subway, colleagues on set and foreign places. I love observing what people around me are wearing and what inspires their wardrobe choices.
WHAT DO YOU THINK CREATIVITY LOOKS LIKE / WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
Creativity looks like a group of people collaborating together. Most beautiful pieces of art, music and fashion are constructed by a group of people working together.
WHAT OR WHO ARE YOU INSPIRED BY?
I am so incredibly inspired by my clients. A lot of them are pioneers in their industries and I find it so motivating to learn what drives them.
NAME THE GREATEST ALBUM COVER OF ALL TIME.
Negro Swan by Blood Orange.
TELL ABOUT YOUR BOLDEST FASHION CHOICE – A SINGULAR MOMENT OR AN EVERYDAY DECISION.
I like to be bold in my accessories. My wardrobe is pretty uniform so having fun with a pair of bright colored shoes or colorful bag is how I like to spice up my outfit.
EXPLAIN YOUR IDEAL INTERGALACTIC GETAWAY – WHICH UNIVERSE AND WITH WHOM?
I’d love to live in a universe where everyone can fly so I can easily see all of my friends and family while living anywhere in the world.
IS YOUR JOB JUST ABOUT CLOTHES OR IS IT MORE THAN THAT?
I always tell people styling is 90 percent strategy and 10 percent creative. My job requires a lot of prep which includes conversations with designers, budget planning, shipping coordinating and organization. So yes, so much more than clothes itself. Thats the fun part!
Power suit brings the Flush sock into play.
The Neon sock adds a pop of color to Britt’s summer whites.
WHY DID YOU GET IN THIS BUSINESS?
Since I was 12 years old I slept with a Teen Vogue under my pillow. I remember checking the mail every day until the next month’s issue was delivered to my door. I would then photocopy the previous month’s issue and tape it on my wall. Fashion has been a part of my life for almost as long as I can remember!
GIVE US YOUR BEST SOCK PUN.
I used to have a few jokes about pairs of matching socks but I’ve lost one.
