How has your year been so far?
My year has been crazy. I can’t believe it’s March already. Time flies when you’re having fun.
What inspired you to start your Instagram account?
I really love fashion and I drink a lot of coffee, it’s as simple as that. When I first moved to NYC, I would walk around the city and find new coffee shops to try and I was naturally shooting my coffee n clothes together in photos.
Where do you find inspiration from?
I find my inspiration from everything, really. I like to just walk around the streets without any technology and just observe. You can learn a lot from just observing and seeing how different people and things work.
What projects have you been working on that you’re most proud of?
I recenetly helped launch the NMD sneaker with adidas Originals. We had an event in NYC for the launch, which was epic. As far as Coffee ‘N Clothes goes I’m working on a revamped website.
What is your go-to outfit?
Black hoodie and a pair of jeans.
When did things starts to take off for you?
Right off the bat. It’s a catchy topic and it is something people do on a daily basis.
What advice do you have for someone who wants to start their own professional Instagram account?
Make sure you have a unique angle and just have fun with it.
