Interview with Erin W.

MY BEST FASHION ADVICE
You don’t have to buy expensive clothes to make an outfit look amazing. If you have the right accessories you can make a five-dollar outfit look expensive - it’s about putting things together the way you want.
MY WARDROBE STAPLES
I have an incredible black and white striped Norma Kamali jumpsuit from the 90s - it looks like an old prison jumpsuit. I’m also obsessed with a pair of tie-dyed silk Y & Kei pants teamed with an oversized black silk pirate shirt with fringe that I found at a thrift shop. My go-to dress is a simple black cotton one from Margiela.
FAVOURITE PLACES TO SHOP
In LA I always seem to find something great, usually vintage or from V.O.D boutique. I always go to Dallas Jackie’s because I love the mix of the small designer brands she has. I got some really amazing early ‘90s Moschino pieces there that i’m totally in love with.

Go-getters!
DEFINE YOUR STYLE
Frumpy sexiness! I like oversized jeans, jackets and denim shorts - which I wear every day. There’s so much of a tomboy in me so I enjoy wearing guy’s clothes.
BEAUTY BUYS
Eye make-up is the most important beauty accessory for me and I always have a great mascara handy. My absolute favourite is Maybelline’s new Falsies Volum’ Express mascara, which gives me an instant false lash look that lasts all day.
TYPICAL WORKING DAY
If I’m on a modelling assignment I wake up extremely early and the shoot normally continues into the evening. Every day is different, but i’m always on the go.
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO
I love dancing to Augustus Pablo’s Jungle Cry and listening to Donovan’s Mellow Yellow.
COMFORT ZONE
My tree house, which is super-comfortable and cosy. I go up there in the afternoons to work. At night, when I’m standing in my backyard and have the bonfire going, I think, 'Wow. This is my own little sanctuary.’
COULD NEVER LIVE WITHOUT
If I were ever to be stranded on a desert island, I hope it would be with my new TAG Heuer Meridiist mobile phone.
MY TOP BUYS FOR A/W10
This season’s collections are totally my style - jumpsuits, jeans and big sweaters. You can dress this type of clothing up or down with different accessories.
FAVOURITE DESTINATION
I love Maui for vacations. I also enjoy snowboarding and surfing. When in New York, Far Rockaway beach is always on my list.
