What kinds of things inspire you?

Simplicity—things like road trips to Palm Springs and visits to downtown Los Angeles on a Sunday afternoon.

Why is fashion an important part of your life?

Fashion lets me show off my creative side without being held back.

In your estimation, what are some important things someone should keep in mind when crafting their own personal style?

Just be yourself. Start with the basics and have fun. No one can tell you how to feel and who to be.

Do you remember when you received your first pair of Chuck Taylor sneakers?

My mother bought me my first pair of hi tops when I entered the 7th grade. It’s funny because I am still wearing black hi-tops today. The classics never go out of style.
