Who are your favorite black designers? I really admire Tracy Reese style icons? Shala Monroque And why? Tracy Reese-I love the way she dresses a woman’s body and how she has built such a successful brand. Shala Monroque-are you kidding…her style is effortlessly classy, chic, humble and bold at the same time. Each ensemble is stamped with her own style characteristic.
What’s your favorite item in your wardrobe right now? Oh I have two…My yummy vintage mongolian lamb fur coat & my lovely camel colored wool vintage cape!
What’s your definition of fashion and or style? I believe style is specific to the character of the person…it’s a persons ability to express themselves from a pure place of inspiration & confidence. It’s a stamp and it’s more about the person than the outfit in my opinion.
Do you care more for fashion or style? Definitely style…although I do love fashion, it’s influenced heavily by trends, trends die down and then come right back around. Style for me is something that is consistent and specific to the person, it’s like a fingerprint.
Favorite current fashion trend?/least favorite? I really have fallen for the Levis destroyed denim short & chunky heels. My least favorite trend is DEFINITELY creepers…sorry creepers lovers.
Something in your closet that you couldn’t live without? My new white double breasted blazer with gold buttons…
Who or what inspired you to create a fashion blog? My friend Dannie told me I should start a fashion blog 2 years ago, & I thought “Yeah right”, and believe it or not I had no idea that this whole world of fashion blogging existed. I have always been the creative type and come up with new ways to put things together and never knew there was so much inspiration out there. So here I am two years later and loving every minute of expressing my creativity through my style and extreme passion for fashion. I really do love it…I want to be involved in fashion for the rest of my life.
Best moment of your blogging career? I would have to say my “Style Pantry” feature. That was nice…oh and being featured on the home page on Chictopia.
What does BlackFashion mean to you? I can share what I would like for it to mean, Black fashion to me means a cultures ability to move forward with no restrictions, and express themselves not based or founded on the rules of just culture, society or fashion, but founded in the liberty of what they are truly inspired by. Living a stylized life outside of the box…outside of the box that says you have to conform or be a certain way.
