❤ How would you describe your personal style?
I pay the bills buying vintage clothing for a certain American clothing manufacturer so I'm constantly surrounded by gorgeous garments from the yesteryears. My personal style as a result is a mixture of clothing dating from the 40s to the 90s.
❤ What are your inspirations? Designers / artists you admire most?
Prepare yourself for two heavily cliched answers... First i will have to say my husband Landon who is a designer of fashions, graphics, various office supplies and who illustrates, animates and most recently is trying his hand at the banjo. He is endlessly inspiring to me. I'm also deeply enamored with the 60s czech new wave and its leading ladies.
❤ Which of your creations / accomplishments are you the most proud of and why?
This is a super difficult question to answer! I think I was definitely most excited to have my first solo show a couple years back. My favourite piece entitled "my brother Liam and some hairless cats" was part of that exhibit.
❤ Which trends do you think will be big this Fall? Which ones will flop?
I've seen many the constructed 60s inspired wiggle dress which makes me very happy as i've been steadily building up a collection for quite some time. I'm kind of hoping the return of the saggy "boyfriend jean" will flop.
❤ What's the most fashionable city in the world at the moment?
I'm always poking about street style blogs and i have to say it's rather hard to peg just one city as most fashionable! I really admire the way Berliners put together an outfit. We have a shop there and i absolutely love putting collections together for them because they are so creative in their styling.
❤ Which websites do you go to regularly?
Right now i'm in love with The Selby, my flickr contacts page, Art of Michelle and sidereel for episodes of skins.
❤ What would you wear on a date?
My vintage underoos to tuck my tummy in, a wiggle dress, tights, my favourite 40s pumps and a hat!
