6. WHAT PROMOTED YOUR CAREER IN FASHION DESIGN? WHAT GIVES YOU THE MOTIVATION?
I have always had a passion for fashion and found myself sewing and making patterns at a young age, I went to hair dressing school but it was my love for writing that brought me to where I am in the industry at this point.
I will never forget my first fashion show! As the columnist writer of Socially Scene for the Boston Post Gazette my editor suggested I check out a Denise Hajjar show at the Copley Hotel during Boston Fashion Week 2012.
I had never really covered a fashion show but was totally mesmerized by Denise and the beauty of her designs. There was such elegance in the presentation. It is an honor to now be working with her on projects. It was such a high a few months back to tell her the story when she asked me why I got into fashion and I was able to smile and say, "you".
5. WHICH PHOTOGRAPHER, DESIGNER OR MODEL WOULD YOU LIKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COLLABORATE WITH?
Well I am blessed to be working with Denise Hajjar at the moment, her model Simone Aptekamn is my girl crush along with Sophie Weidass so when I see them at a show I know I'm at a class act production.
4. WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST IN FASHION?
Diane Von Furstenburg she is such an iconic business women that exudes class.
3. HOW DO YOU BALANCE CREATIVITY WITH COMMERCE?
That's quite the question. I don't! I have people telling me all the time to smarten up on my price points. I'm an artist, I love what I do, so I am happy to do it. I do have a business advisor so he is breaking all that down for me, thanks Jerry!
2. WHAT KIND OF FEEDBACK HAVE YOU BEEN RECEIVING ON YOUR LATEST PRODUCTS?
I am getting positive feedback and excited reviews on my work. It's all so surreal to know what I love to do it benefiting people in business.
1. WHERE DO YOU SEE YOU / YOUR BRAND IN 5 YEARS TIME?
I see myself on a remote beach every late January through March. Now what I will be doing to get myself that luxury? Your guess is as good as mine! I am always exploring something new yet I always stay true to roots of soccer and writing. I think I would like to be in sports broadcasting and sit on a fashion board where I am arguing with Anna Wintour
OPINION POLL. WHAT IS THE CURRENT STATE OF FASHION IN BOSTON?
I think Boston Fashion is making a very good push in the right direction. We have had some struggles with too much of our community being divided. However I am starting to see some power players take charge and some new faces with fresh ideas.
Any Upcoming Events?
As of this moment in interview process (Sept/Oct 2016) I have the closing of Boston Fashion Week tomorrow with sexy stunner Angelica Timas and then I'm rushing right over to my man Stanley's show with his fabulous sister Joelle and their strong brand showing IAmKreyol.
