I've always been inspired by fashion from the 1990s and early 2000s. I grew up in Houston, Texas, for a big chunk of my childhood.
I would always see music videos on MTV and think, 'I'm going to wear clothes like this when I grow up!'. I also loved watching shows such as The Fresh Prince Of Belair -huge fashion inspo.
My love for sneakers started when I got my first job at 13! I could save up and buy my clothes and shoes, allowing me to express myself through fashion.
I loved seeing the emergence of Bapestas in the early 2000s. The merging between music and fashion has always been the most exciting moment in sneaker culture for me. Kanye and Yeezy, the list goes on.
It feels fly as hell! You feel like the coolest person in the room, and a walk anywhere is a runway, LOL.
@alealimay - I feel like her style is reminiscent of the 90s; I love her ability to mix streetwear, designer & high fashion effortlessly. @tlzfemme, I love the silhouettes; no one else is doing it like her at the moment!
@jbdapparel - she really elevated knitwear and started a trend. Everyone needs a JBD piece in their wardrobe for summer. @samimirovintage - I love that she began with upcycling vintage garments and now created ethically made clothing with many cut-outs and collaging techniques.
Aaliyah x Nike Air Jordan, as Aaliyah was a huge fashion icon and inspiration in my life. I would have loved to see what she would have released in the fashion and sneaker industry.
Some pairs in my rotation are the Nike Air Jordan 4 'Military Black,' Nike Air More Uptempo '96, Air Jordan 4 Retro 'Cool Grey,' and Adidas Ozweego.
I wish to own a Bathing Ape Bapesta M2 low-top sneakers.
My vintage diesel handbag, Rowland vision glasses, Dada Supreme leather varsity jacket, and trucker hat are essentials.
