What 3 projects that you have been involved in are you most proud of?
This year I have taken on quite a few projects but the three I’m most proud of would be launching the fashion label We Are Savages with my girlfriend Kimmi, creating a meal prep service that offers our clients fresh & healthy meals, and entering a DJ competition which has now furthered my DJ career and means I’ll be playing at a few events on NYE.
What has being a blogger taught you about fashion – how has your career influenced your style?
Being a blogger has taught me that fashion is something personal and not everyone is going to like your particular style, but that’s what makes you individual. Now having a career in fashion and launching my own brand it has influenced my style to be more basic and monochrome.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is basic and minimal.
What is your go to outfit?
Our We Are Savages basic tall tee in white, black leather chino style pants and black Adidas Y3 sneakers.
Where do you get style inspiration from?
It’s a mixture of things. I get inspired by street wear, so think ripped oversized tees, sweaters and kicks, but I’m also inspired by clean lines and tailored garments from Balmain or Alexander Wang.
What advice would you have to someone who is having difficulty developing their own style?
Don’t listen to what other people say. Experiment and wear what feels right to you and you will soon develop your own individual style.
What are your fashion dos and don’ts?
-Basic Oversized Tee’s
-Biker leather jackets.
-Thongs/Sandals with Jeans
