February 16, 2018

How would you describe your style?

AS: Crazy, funky… it’s not fresh, but its original, I don’t know how to describe it, it’s a bit out there. It’s a mixture of a lot of things because I definitely know it didn’t just come from just anywhere. It’s just imagination-wise, it’s style based off of imagination and creativity, that’s what I call it.

 

What influences your style?

AS: Food. It sounds weird, but it’s definitely food because I am really interested in colors, but it also comes from my culture, actually Gun Woo’s culture too because I’ve been really influenced by the whole Asian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese culture. It kinda meshes with Nigerian culture too because of all the colors. I was a pretty plain kid when I was about five or six, but I was like I don’t know what this [color] is, but it’s pretty cool, so that whole Harajuku thing.

 

Where do you like to shop

AS: H&M, I search on Instagram for a lot of cool Instagram shops because they typically have a lot of nice stuff. You don’t have to go to your typical Forever 21, which they do have nice stuff, but at the same time I have to search for something different. I like layers too. So on certain shops on Instagram they will have a whole bunch of layers, so just some really cool things that are different styles of clothing than what you would typically get in America.
