I LOVE fashion magazines. Elle, Vogue and INStyle are my favourite magazines to read on the plane when I am traveling. It gives me insight on what’s going on in the fashion world.
What was your favourite style decade? (grunge, hippy, 40’s, …)
I am a big fan of the 40’s I believe that I was suppose to be born in that decade lol
What does style mean to you?
Style to me is like an art form. It’s a form of expression for people. I believe you don’t need money to have style. Just creativity and confidence.

I always dress for myself. Because if I don’t feel positive or confident in what I am wearing then neither will the person I am wearing it for.

Never over do it.

What do you think about the way men/women dress in this city? Do you find Vancouver’s style different from other cities you’ve been to or lived in?
Vancouver has a great style. I think that each city that I have lived in brings something different to the table. Los Angeles is very casual and accessorized, New York has that all walks of life for fashion and Paris brings such an essence of class that you can put on anything your in the mood for and wear it out.
Have you ever felt pressured to look a certain way? Why? What did you do about it?
I definitely think there is a lot of pressure to look a certain way. As much as I love fashion magazines I do disagree with the way they airbrush everything and give young girls the idea that this is how they must look. I think you have to be yourself and love your body and look and that will project to others. I never let the pressure of being a certain way get to me. This is who I am take it or leave it.
Do you think fashion and trends are affected by media? Is this a good thing?
Yes and no. I do think celebrities inspire fashion trends to a certain extent but really the designers are the ones who inspire everything from the start.
