Who/What has inspired you to start blogging?
I actually started blogging in 2008, but then quit because I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I realized that I wanted to pursue costume designing in... film so I went to graduate school. It wasn’t until my final year that I thought to myself, "Movies inspire fashion all the time, why not create a blog about it?" That’s how it all began. I love costume design and fashion so naturally, I started featuring both on my blog. I wanted not only to inspire others, but also showcase the vast majority of talent that costume designers deserve.
Are clothes a means of defining yourself or a means expressing something else?
I don’t think clothes define who the person is, but I do believe it is a medium that is used to express oneself. My style changes everyday and like art, I use clothing to tell a story.
What is one thing your readers would be surprised to hear about you?
I can’t stand scary movies. The last horror film I watched was "Sixth Sense." For some reason, I’ve developed a photogenic memory and it’s quite terrible. My goal is to work on a horror film set so I can physically see how fake everything is. Haha.
What is your first impression of the GiGi New York brand?
I’m a lover of minimalistic bags because I believe they can be passed down from generation to generation and GiGi New York has just that. Every piece is so timeless and the attention to detail in the leather and hardware is just perfect.
