What’s your best styling tip?
Never be afraid to push the socially defined boundaries of fashion – in fact, that is how new styles are born. Be brave. Mix and match. Take risks in styling things that you wouldn’t think would work together. Be authentic. If you feel empowered covering yourself up, then cover up. If you feel empowered taking it off, then take it all off. Fashion is forever changing and if you’re not grounded in who you are then you may find yourself simply following others – always do you boo.
What’s your favourite BlackMilk piece?
Gahhhh, this is a ridiculously hard question so I’ve got two answers. My go-tos are the Red Tartan Toasties because it is always so damn cold in Vancouver, Canada – these have saved me from becoming a popsicle. My favourite piece ever is the Slytherin Scoop Skater Dress. I may have a slight obsession with all things Harry Potter, and as a fellow Slytherin this dress is EVERYTHING.
If you could choose one food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
BREAD!!! So many delicious options to choose from – baguette bread, flat bread, pita bread, chapati bread, Iranian breads…yummm! One of my favourite things ever is biting into a fresh baguette, if you haven’t yet done this then your next stop is to buy a warm baguette. I love bread.
What does the world need more of?
I would say love but that word has been used so much it’s turned into a cliché that doesn’t really mean anything. So I’m going to define what love means to me. Love to me means listening, empathy, caring, open-mindedness, and compassion. The world needs more of all those. Right now fear is running the world, everyone is afraid of anything different. Fear leads to hatred, and hate always leads to violence. But if, instead of fear, we approach others with an open mind, with empathy, with love, and we listen to each other, the world will be a much better place.
