The 27-year-old designer chatted with the glossy about all things fashion including her collection, closet and more. Check it:
On building a wardrobe: “Whenever someone comes up to me and says, ‘I’m having trouble shopping.’ I tell them to pull out their 10 favorite, most-worn pieces, then build a wardrobe around them. You need to figure out what you gravitate toward, what makes you feel good—and those staples are going to be different for everybody.”
On the inspiration behind her line: “At first, I was just designing for myself. Then I started getting comments from women who didn’t have my body type, saying things like, ‘I have a larger chest and can’t wear this tent-shaped dress.’ So I’ve learned to make pieces that don’t necessarily flatter me but look great on someone else.”
On how she stands apart from other ‘celebrity’ designers: “I spent years in school for this. It wasn’t just, ‘I like clothes! I’m going to make some!’”
