Tell me about yourself.
J: Hey! My name is Joey, I’m 23 years old and I reside in Long Island, NY. I am an assistant manager and aspiring wardrobe stylist.
How would you describe your personal style?
J: My personal style is basically all of my alter egos just combined into one. I'll have the grunge look one day then the posh pretty girl look the next. It all depends on my mood and where I am heading to.
You're no stranger to switching up your look. Sometimes you're in heels and sometimes you're in sneakers. One day you have a short haircut and the next you have a long protective style. How important is being versatile to you? And what advice would you give somebody who's afraid to try new looks?
J: Being versatile is VERY IMPORTANT to me because it helps others notice you more. Many may want to try new things but are afraid to take a risk. I am a huge risk taker and in order to be comfortable with taking a risk, you must always remember to be confident and never worry what others may think of you. The more you switch up but are still able to have the same personality, the more people you will actually meet who are just like you. Especially being in the fashion world, its all about who you know and standing out.
Quick! You need an outfit for a major event. Name your top 5 go to stores or designers.
- Forever 21
- Maison Martin Margiela
Who is your current favorite fashion/style icon?
J: My current favorite fashion/style icon at the moment would have to be Rihanna!
Her swag is so dope and I honestly look in the mirror before I head out to events and say to myself “What would Riri wear?“ *lmao*.
She is fearless and also a risk taker. It's like she can’t do any wrong.
List a few of your closet must haves.
- Black Leather Jacket
- Ripped jeans
- White/Black t-shirt
- Nude, Black, White Heels
What is fashion to you?
J: Fashion is about expressing your identity and who you are from the inside without having to speak. Your clothing can really tell someone about you off the back.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
J: Well, let me start off by saying that I am really excited about working on my portfolio for wardrobe styling and I’m hoping to launch it soon for many to see what I am capable of.
Having said that, I would hope to be able to contribute my talents within a company that will help give me more awareness as a wardrobe/shoe stylist and build clientele.
