Personamagazine.net: When, where, and how did you get the line started?I started out of my moms house almost 10 years ago and sold to a couple boutiques in the Los Angeles area, after I started getting positive feedback about my stuff I gained confidence and shopped my line around to other stores in the States and Japan.
Personamagazine.net: How do you feel about the company now and where it is headed?I enjoy being able to work with and create custom things for artists and musicians I admire as well as doing ready to wear. I’d love to get an investor or a backer behind me so I can take things to the next level. I’m currently working on a secondary line that will debut for spring/summer 2010 so thats a step.Personamagazine.net: Who are some of your favorite designers?I love my friends and local brands such as Alex and Chloe and Grey Ant as well as European designers Nicolas Ghesquière, Hussein Chalayan, and Martin Margiela.Personamagazine.net: What is your goal for 2009??More collaborations with my talented friends such as photographer/director Greko Sklavounos and milliner Franc Fernandez.Personamagazine.net: What was your prized first purchase in fashion as a youth or as an adult??I remember being really excited about getting Cross Colors and Hypercolor tshirts for my birthday in middle school haha.Personamagazine.net: Do you read Bossip?Yeah I have to say I do check bossip.com on a regular basis:]
