How would you describe your personal style?
Dark, casual elegance that is subtly avant garde. Minimal, consistent, wearable.
Where did you get your passion for fashion?
I have always been interested in design. I studied fashion at university (then later, art and art history). I now work in the visual arts and am highly sensitive to aesthetics.
Where do you find sartorial inspiration?
Probably everywhere - in architecture, nature, art, other blogs. Concrete ideas come from my head; then I seek specific pieces for my wardrobe that fit my ideologies.
What is the difference between fashion and style?
Fashion is wavering, influenced by the winds of change. Fashion is cyclical. Style is personal taste that evolves over time. To be stylish is to know yourself, be consistent and have a keen eye.
Any advice for a woman who is starting to find her personal style?
Think before buying. Be true to yourself. Grow as a person. Live life.
The purpose of the Friday True Fashionista series is to show women who use clothing to express their personal style. Each woman has a different, unique look and opinion on clothing and fashion. These women inspire me in my clothing choices, and possibly their bold sartorial statements will inspire you. Stay tuned, there will be a featured True Fashionista every Friday for the next few weeks. And if you know of a True Fashionista in your life, tell us about her in the comments!
