How would you describe your style in three words?

I would describe my style as Androgynous, Minimal, and Avant Garde.

Who are some of your style icons?

My style icons are Grace Jones, and Tilda Swinton.

What are your top five fashion must-haves?

Top 5 must haves are a great overcoat, black skinny denim, black boots, a signature hat or bag, and of course a pair of sunglasses.

Were you always into fashion? If not, what created your love for it?

I've always been very very interested in fashion. My parents were the influencers of that.

Tell me about your proudest achievement?

One of my proudest achievements was when I recieved my AAS in fashion design in Florence, Italy and working with the Creative Director for Salvatore Ferragamo.

We saw that Zendaya was recently rocking one of your pieces for "Kode Mag", how did this come about?

YES! Zendayaaaa! I love how she is styled.That came about because a great friend of mine is the Stylist Asst. to her Stylist, Law.

Assuming that you want a career in fashion, what exactly is your dream profession? 

I do want to continue to do fashion design and design under a large brand, as well as being known for great achievements.

I notice that you have these signature tall hats. Would you call this your signature piece.

I would call my hats my signature pieces, and they're even more signature because I create a lot of them.

What is one fun fact people don't know about you?

That I'm extremely personable despite what a lot of people think. I guess an actual fun fact would be that I have a mohawk of long dread locks that I've been growing for almost 11 years. It's always hidden under my gigantic hats.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I would definitely want to be world renown and also working in the fashion industry preferably in fashion design
