Describe your style:

“My style is mine. I wear pieces and accessories, down to even my tattoos, that make me feel in alignment with myself.”

Where do you draw inspiration from for your wardrobe?
“Largely from folks I want to nod to or show respect for, give gratitude to and remember. I take fashion inspiration from Black and queer culture, from what’s happening in music, art and politics, mood and energy—simply from life. You are your own creation. Everything that I do is in alignment with thanking the folks who have sacrificed in order for me to be here today.”

Favourite local clothing brands?
“Hats off to tREv Clothing, Family Over Fame, Bad Publicity.”
