She’s a curious troublemaker intrigued by the world around her. An extrovert seeking personal entertainment, honesty, sexual liberation…
Where do you go?
I go where my instinct pushes me. I have lived in NYC a long time and haven’t found a reason to leave yet. I like to visit the woods or the beach at times to clear my mind.
What is love?
I’m still asking myself this question all the time. I’ve learned thus far that love is an eternal feeling that never leaves you. Even when you’re no longer with a person, if they passed away or if they hurt you in some way, this feeling of love is inescapable. It can be a beautiful curse on your soul.
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is a ridiculous and at times repulsive industry. However, I’m fascinated by the power and affectations clothing can have on a person and how they’re perceived by others. I like to play with identity on a daily basis and I think clothing has a big role in that freedom.
What are you dreaming about?
I’m dreaming about a world where simple amenities for daily life are more accessible to all people. I’m dreaming about a way to distance myself from ideas of money and live in a realm that is 100% creatively motivated. I’m dreaming about the vastness of outer space and the extent of knowledge we can all hope to attain…
