How would you describe your fashion sense?

The most important thing to me is to feel good, not only comfortable but also happy about what I am wearing. I think that I am not an ultra-feminine type dresser; I don’t like showing a lot of skin. I think my dress sense is more casual and classy with a touch of individuality.

What’s your favourite clothing item?

I would say that my favourite clothing item is a dress. There is nothing I feel more comfortable in than a dress. It doesn’t matter whether it’s short or

maxi or if I’m going to school, shopping, a meeting or even the hospital.


Where do you shop for clothes?

I don’t have a specific shop. I also like making my own clothes. I mostly consider seasons, trademarks, and also colour when shopping. If something catches my eye and it fits me, I will not leave the shop without it.

What is your favourite fashion accessory?


My favourite accessories are necklaces, earrings and rings as they go together. I also like sunglasses; I wear them even in
the house.

What is your favourite clothing item on a guy?


Most guys don’t care about their shoes. They will smell good

but when you look at the shoes, you get disappointed. They are definitely my favourite thing on a guy.

What’s your favourite scent?

 
I love Green Tea because it smells
natural and fresh.

Any fashion advice?

I believe that what you wear and how you present yourself is a
silent introduction to who you are. I would advise people to always dress to impress and wear what they feel comfortable in.
