“I used to play dress-up in my living room, and I’ve never stopped. I love looking weird. One day I might look like an African Queen, and the next day I’ll look like Sporty Spice. I’m from Eritrea, a small country in East Africa, but I was raised in Sweden, where people are so toned down. When I walk to the train, people stare at me and make me feel uncomfortable. But if I put myself in jeans and a T-shirt, then I’d be uncomfortable. This is my comfort zone. I don’t read fashion magazines or fashion blogs. What I’m wearing, I bought on the street in a country where people hand make the clothes.” - Ellen Elias. For Ellen’s full story, watch her What’s Underneath episode!
