“I love flashy pieces so I’m really inspired by 90s grunge. Tokyo’s fashion scene is a must when it comes to mixing colors and patterns. My style inspiration: anything that catches my eye and I can play with to make it my own. My favorite designers are Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Dsquared2. Anyone who pushes the norms on fashion and creativity.”

“I am wearing a shiffon button up, a gold lion necklace, gold bracelet, and custom Elemntri pants. My style is influenced by rock'n roll and pop culture icons such as Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Prince, Bobby Brown, Jimi Hendrix. I would even go as far as to say Little Richard. My current favorites include the pre fall 2017 Gucci campaign. The variety of outfits Prince wore for the Purple Rain tour also inspire me. I’ve dedicating my wardrobe to more silk and satin materials lately, I’ve become a big fan of blouses. One could say that I just prefer to look as luxurious as possible.”
