What inspires your style? Everything. I take my cues from the most random places/objects/people. I'll find inspiration in a Barnett Newman painting, or in a shade of moss that I saw in Venice, or I'll get it from a well-dressed homeless person I passed. I am an amalgamation of the world around me and the world I create for myself.
What city/country has the best style? London, hands down.
What movie best captures your style? Party Girl.
Who has wack style? Style is such a personal thing. It's not my place to judge.
What trend do you want to see die? Jeggings, Pajama Jeans, and anything else that should be a pair of jeans but somehow became a hybrid of something else.
Last clothing item you purchased? A vintage mohair sweater.
Most money you ever spent on a single item of clothing? $60 for a second hand Helmut Lang dress. I have a knack for finding amazing deals on things that I want.
Favorite website? Ebay.
What do you collect? Books and nail polish.
What is your favorite brand? I don't have one.
What is your favorite tech gadget? My mini disc player, it's so dated, but I still marvel at it.
What do guys dig about your style? That it's always original.
What's the most common statement people make about your style? Something having to do with how I manage to make the ugliest of garments look good. I just tell them it's all in how you carry yourself.
What's the item currently in your closet you most regret buying? There are no regrets on my hangers.
What do you see as the next big trend? Heavy draping.
What is your favorite city? Istanbul.
What is your dream job? I already have it. However, occasionally I romance the idea of working for Pantone. Who wouldn't want to spend 40 hours a week making new colors?
Who is your dream date? Kanye...
Last book read? "Colour: Documents in Contemporary Art" by David Batchelor.
What is your trend proof style advice for our readers? Always, always allow your style to be a reflection of who you really are—not what you want people to think you are. Everyone is unique, singular, and imperfect.
