Tell me about yourself.
D: My name is Destinie and I’m a 25 year old blogger, stylist, and entrepreneur from Brooklyn.
How would you describe your personal style?
D: My personal style is always evolving. I like a little bit of everything and I think that shows through my clothing. I like juxtaposition when it comes to my style, mixing high end and streetwear, mainly.
Any advice for young girls trying to figure out their own personal style?
D: Always go with what feels right. If you like it, do it. Set trends, do your own thing! Everyone else’s opinion doesn’t matter!
Tell us about your website KingDes.com!
D: Kingdes.com started as my personal blog, then evolved into my shop as well. I blog mainly about my personal style and cool places I’ve been, along with others’ style I can appreciate and different brands. My shop is all about delivering dope products to my customers. The idea is that when you want a cool ass piece you automatically think of checking out King Des!
What is your earliest fashion memory?
D: I remember going to the Prada store in like 2009, and picking up a pair of red suede heels. They were beautiful! I was never really into heels, but those heels embodied everything that was me! That was the moment when I realized those were the type of shoes I had to own. It was like they described me without me having to speak. Until this day I allow fashion to speak for me. It’s the first thing people see before you even open your mouth.
List your top 5 wardrobe essentials.
- A black leather jacket.
- A black turtleneck.
- Light wash vintage jeans.
- A cool graphic tee.
- Margiela Tabi booties.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
D: In 5 years I definitely see another baby and my own home. I see myself having more clients to style, as well as styling more photoshoots/editorials. I also see my website living up to it’s fullest potential, and hopefully having my own retail space!
