Tell me about yourself.
AA: My name is Alexus Assata. I'm 19 years young. I live in Los Angeles but I'm originally from New York. I am a fashion stylist/creative director currently striving to be a girl boss by 21!
How would you describe your personal style?
AA: I would definitely have to say my personal style is authentic. I'll give you Va$htie one day, Aleali May the next, then give you Alexus off the wall and that style is indescribable. I'm definitely a tomboy at heart. I can't walk in heels to save my life. But I can definitely walk in a room full of girls with heels on and still be killing shit.
Who is your favorite fashion designer?
AA: I don't have a favorite fashion designer but I do have a few that I like a lot. I'm wishing to one day say I am own my favorite.
What's the one trend you'd love to see never come back in style?
AA: To be honest I never really looked at a trend and hated it. I've always felt like whatever the trend was at the moment the right person can body it in the right ways. I've definitely surprised myself a couple of times and made trends look better than what they were portrayed to be on others.
What's the best career or fashion advice you've ever received?
AA: Damn, this is a good one. The best fashion advice I've received was from one of my previous mentors Chavon Tingle. Everything that came out of her mouth to me was the best advice but one thing that stood out the most was when she told me a set back is always done to make room for a come back. I use to cry over spilled milk. Now, I wipe the milk I spilled then pour another glass.
Do you have any fashion pet peeves?
AA: Nothing other than I'm late to everything because my outfit always has to be on 100.
How do you stay motivated?
AA: I definitely would have to say I stay motivated by keeping in touch with God. Praying is key. In this industry it can sometimes be very challenging to stay motivated/positive but when I stay around the right company, stay focus, and give my all at any moment in time there is no stopping me. I'm on beast mode 24/7 and I like to keep people who are on beast mode around me because when one falls off the other is right there to pick them up and keep the ball rolling. I keep it at a "Can't stop, won't stop" motive.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
AA: I see myself where ever God plans for me to be. I'll see myself somewhere and then when it's time for me to be in that place I'm somewhere higher. I'll just keep having an eye of a tiger and let God lead the way. Hopefully I'm somewhere changing the world and making an impact on young ladies lives like myself.
