MEET THE ARTISTS:
Annie + Hannah
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP:
Annie split her time between Honduras and New York. Hannah was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.
WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN FASHION:
We both gravitated towards clothes since we can remember. Annie made business cards that said she was a designer as her occupation around 7 y/o but deviated multiple times after. Hannah has styled herself since she was 3-4 y/o when her parents gave her free reign to pick out her own clothes.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LOOK THAT YOU’VE CREATED:
Cole Sprouse in the most incredible yellow Alexander McQueen suit for Hunger Magazine feels obvious to us. However, our favorite looks come from our collaborations with kids. We love to put ourselves in the mindset of a child and let our imagination run wild. Sometimes we let the kids join in on the fun of styling their looks!
IF YOU WEREN'T A STYLIST WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING INSTEAD:
Annie would be living on a farm in upstate New York with a bunch of disabled, elderly, rescue dogs.
Hannah would be out mastering the art of Ikebana.
WHERE DO YOU DRAW INSPIRATION FOR YOUR WARDROBE STYLE?
EVERYWHERE! Ordinary people walking down the street, film, runway, art, the internet, etc.
WHAT SONG GETS STUCK IN YOUR HEAD MOST OFTEN:
This answer varies all the time. But you can rely on Hannah to burst into Kanye’s, “All of the Lights” pretty routinely on set, or searching for the light switch at a costume shop.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ERA OF FASHION:
All of them?!
WHAT IS THE ONE ITEM OF CLOTHING THAT YOU WEAR MOST OFTEN:
In unison- “blue jeans and a white tee!”
WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY BE:
“What’s for Lunch?”
WHAT IS THE HARDEST THING YOU'VE EVER DONE:
Just existing the past few months. A pandemic, self-isolation, civil rights movement. So much introspection and growth - which is great, but hard!
WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU LAUGHED SO HARD IT HURT:
3 mins ago when we came up with the title for our joint autobiography.
WHAT IS YOUR SECRET TALENT:
Annie can sing all the words to Beastie Boy’s “Intergalactic”. Hannah can bake croissants!
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO DANCE MOVE:
After an 8 month stint in Argentina, Annie learned the art of Tango from Carlitos and Rosa Perez.
Meanwhile, Hannah spent seven consecutive summers at sleep-away camp finessing the Irish Jig.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO UNWIND AFTER A BUSY DAY:
A drink, our pets, and BRAVO.
WHAT ITEM OF CLOTHING DO YOU WEAR TO FEEL YOUR BEST?
A leather jacket and/or heels!
