“I like clothes that speak for themselves, also pretty much all vintage and thrifted clothing because I think it has more character. New York street style inspires my style a lot, as well the past, the 70s and the 90s. I like Zoe Kravitz’s style a lot! My favorite designers are probably Public School, Proenza Schouler, and Jacquemus.”

“I am wearing thrifted clothes from The Philippines which is where I’m from. I am inspired by the people I see around me and the strange things I can find in the Philippines, and I like clothes that are functional and aesthetically pleasing at the same time.”

“I am wearing my Champion sweatpants, my American Apparel halter bodysuit and a thrifted scarf. My style is inspired by sci-fi films, anime, 90s hip hop and R&B, banjie cunt realness and my mother. The clothes have to speak to me when I see them and when I try them on, they have to make me feel something. Something I always look for is, can this outfit be my “cartoon character outfit” because in cartoons they always wear the same thing, so I want the outfit to be able to represent me. But at the same time I’m still figuring out who I am as a person and I think fashion is one of the best ways to not only express yourself but find yourself.”

“I am wearing my own pleated clothing: pants, poncho, hat, and coat. I am inspired by beauty, and textiles, especially indigenous and tribal. I like a rather wide variety of clothing, mostly antique, tribal, and ethnographic. I’m much more interested in individual style than fashion. As Coco Chanel said: Fashion changes, style remains.”

”My style inspirations are David Bowie, David Sylvian, Ryuichi Sakamoto. Styles I like: bold colors with some architectural interest, high waists, sharp collars, New Wave androgyny, pattern mixing, glam with some malevolence, tweed, colorful fustiness.”

“I like to mix styles and old with new, fancy with something trashy, but always throw on a pair of boots to dress it down. I love to have fun with my style, and don’t take fashion too seriously.”

“I like to take inspiration from a specific time and place, and especially movies I’ve been watching. Recently I’ve been watching a lot of Jean Jacques Beineix films. I like to buy clothes with a future travel destination in mind. I like to mix vintage with contemporary designer pieces. Second hand of course, and if it’s a little fucked up it’s nice because it’s not so precious.”

“I am wearing an Adidas top, vintage jeans, Adidas Stan Smith sneakers. Instagram, Tumblr, and old music videos inspire me. I like the 90s, boys clothes, hiphop, workwear, sports clothes. Basically anything that isn’t to lady like and glamorous.”

Sarah, 25

“I am wearing a JPG top from Amarcord Vintage, a Norma Kamali blazer and Miu Miu pants from James Veloria and Zara sliver boots. My personal style is all over the place but I am inspired by music like disco, post punk femme, the 90’s etc. I am a fan of Margiela, JPG, Miu Miu, and Prada. I like mixing designer and non name brands together. I like when an outfit doesn’t have a genre. You can’t quite put your finger on it but, it’s weird and there is something in the pieces thats tying it all together.”

“I don’t know what I’m wearing but I found it all at cheap vintage stores, and modified it. My *style* is inspired by the cosmic universe/ holography. I like wearing anything that extends my celestial body into the colorblind universe of my thoughts, while on this physical plane.”

Akeesha, 27

“I’m inspired by Earth, mood, and function. Today was a gray, introspective day, so I wanted to be wrapped up and warm – a self made cocoon to foster self reflection and comfort. I’m drawn to any style that cultivates confidence, contentment, and a smile. I lean more toward used articles of clothing, something that’s been passed down and can tell a story.”

Justin, 28

“My mood inspires my style, so each day is usually a different look. I just like when people look different from each other and, more importantly, when people look like themselves; comfortable in their style. Now I’m wearing a mustard short sleeve button down from H&M, rinse black joggers from Urban Outfitters, a black leather jacket, black and green ombre round beads, warm brown ankle boots. Round iridescent shades from Forever 21. ”
