Black & Grey magazine | Fashion Art Literature Community
First garment you ever made? My younger cousin's dance costumes. I hand-beaded and -sequined them. She adored them.
What's your design training/schooling? Self-taught.
What have been your influences? I've recently begun to reflect on designs in history. I like the idea of recreating it to have my aesthetic. I'm all about balance in design.
Item you're most proud to have designed? My spywear line. A week of sewing proved I could absolutely do this.
Favorite designer(s)? I'm thoroughly enjoying Burberry, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger.
Fashion must? A great blazer, bold or simple.
Fashion faux pas that drives you crazy? Low-cut pants when they shouldn't be low-cut.
Favorite style icon? Jackie O. She is nothing but graceful.
Dream celebrity client? What would you make for him/her? Florence Welch. She needs something to make her look like the siren she is.
If you had to name your label, you'd call it... DEATHERAGE
If you weren't designing, you'd be... Doing interior design or event planning. I love both.
Biggest pet peeve? When I call someone and they don't answer.
Favorite PR designer? Kenley has a great aesthetic. A lot of people refer to her style as being a one-trick pony, but I love the vintage style.
Challenge you hope they bring back? The floral challenge. I would love to go to town on a floral dress.
Challenge you hope they don't bring back? The mom challenge. I don't think I'd like sewing for someone else's mom. Moms are hard to please when they aren't your own.
Do you think you can win PR? Absolutely. If you want something bad enough, you'll find a way to get it.
