WhHAT DOES FASHION MEAN TO YOU? Expression of identity and human spirit.
WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS OF COMPANIES LIKE NIKE USING THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES THAT UNDERPAY THERE WORKERS AND ARE OKAY WITH CHILD LABOR? I could go on a tirade about capitalism and greed, but I’m just gonna say that it’s unfortunate that the existence of these business practices in the fashion industry are responsible for the spread of trends. Almost everyone takes advantage of exploiting labors in “fast fashion”, which is precisely why I wear a lot of pre-worn and vintage pieces.
FAVORITE SHOPPING SPOTS? Any thrift store that can give me the opportunity to dig for treasure!
FASHION WEEK 2011: It’s not done yet, but there have been some great things to look forward to so far! I was really taken aback from Dolce & Gabanna especially, it was such a departure from what they normally put out and I can already tell girls of a younger generation are gonna go NUTS for it!
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN YOU HEARD THE NEWS OF ALEXANDER MCQUEEN? In school and on my laptop when I wasn’t supposed to be.
TV or NO TV? I prefer movies. I haven’t watched tv at all since I went to college and I haven’t really missed it.
PROJECT RUNWAY OR ANTM? Project Runway, ANTM never dazzles me.
FAVORITE PAIR OF SHOE AND WHY? I have these great fitted-ankle leather boots that I thrifted not too long ago and I wear them CONSTANTLY into the ground I love them so much.
