You in two words: Creative / Restless
When did you believe in yourself the most?
I am lucky enough to have been born and raised by a very loving and supportive family. But the most challenging time, was the moment I decided to drop my lifetime of studies in music and pursue a career in fashion and photography. In order to make that decision and redefine my life was to dig deep, and really believe in myself the most.
What advice would you have given yourself ten years ago / What advice would you give your future self?
The only advice I would give to my past self would be: Trust the process. It may not always seem like you‘re on the right path, but every move leads to the big goal. As for my future self, I would hope that he looks back with no regrets, of things not done, experiences not lived and new cuisines not tasted.
What is the best thing about wearing Matinique?
The quality, fit and way the clothes make me feel while wearing them. And even though my style is changing and evolving, there are always pieces from Matinique that I return to again and again.
What is never out of style?
A white oxford shirt, a good pair of navy pants, and a clean white sneaker or brown loafer.
