MEET THE ARTISTS:

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LOOK THAT YOU’VE CREATED: Ahhhhh, I’d have to say my black and white achromatic look I styled for NYLON Germany! I mixed different black and white patterns together and it came together perfectly! I topped it off with thigh-high, clear Chanel boots and it was just *chef’s kiss*
WHERE DO YOU DRAW INSPIRATION FOR YOUR WARDROBE STYLE? I actually have a few different inspirations. I’d say Fran Fine from The Nanny, Solange Knowles, my explore page on Instagram, my boyfriend’s closet, and the endless magazines I read.
