"Fashion is the armor we wear, it’s a very powerful communication device. So there must be creativity to create clothing to create inspired clothing and creativity in communicating the story behind the clothing as well. Without creativity clothing is just a commodity, something functional to cover our bodies." - Maxine B├ędat, co-founder and CEO of Zady 

My military jacket used to be my default "uniform," especially when I had no idea what the day was going to bring, or when I just wanted to go unnoticed.  Sometimes I want to switch characters like a person in a stageplay.  Nowadays though, there isn't much of a time or place to wear those things, because I'm called to represent something bigger and prouder and make stuff happen.  Slowly my clothes reflect how I'm growing and changing, but yet somehow these clothes are still very me.  There's a difference though - they're not necessarily to keep things at an arm's length, but rather to propel me out there just as I am and be who I was meant to be.

What is most interesting is fashion when it's living. I find it inspiring when people dress well - but in their unique interpretation. Searching for people who enjoy having fun with their style and make their own statements. If you want your picture removed, don't hesitate to contact me!
