“People aren’t original. They follow trends. I don’t, I do my own thing. I believe in freedom of expression. That’s why I got this tattoo. Born free, live free.”

“The biggest issue in the fashion industry is and has been diversity in models, makeup artists, hair stylists and designers. Even photographers. It’s exhausting that we still have to talk about this.”

“The biggest issue that you constantly see is diversity. I never see myself reflected in anything fashion related. I don’t see any of my friends reflected in anything fashion related. But I think that the rejection from the fashion industry makes everything exciting. Because then you’re like fuck this, I don’t exist in this world, I can find my own way.”

“The ideal image of a woman is fucked up. It’s causing girls to have eating disorders and body dysmorphia. I think in today’s society we need to market fashion so that it’s for everyone. When you think about it the standard is being 120 pounds, 5’10 or 5’11, and white. And if she isn’t white she has to be this goddess, and that’s not how it should be.”

Him: “I was always into the old school mobsters.. the 20’s, 30’s, and 50’s. I like how rugged they were, and being a tattoo artist is rugged. I always wanted to bring a bit of classiness to the ruggedness.”

Me: “Do you feel like there are any issues in the fashion industry?”

“Fashion doesn’t always have to mean money. It’s just suppose to reflect who you are as a person. We have people camp out in front of our store to spend tons of money for no reason. It’s ridiculous. So I’m interested in following your journey, because we need more people like you to push a different message about what fashion means.”

Her: “We just came from a Japanese meet up for people who are into their fashion!”

Me: “So what does fashion mean to you?”

Her: “Well I’m an artist, so this is just an extension of what I do. I am a product developer and I create dolls.”

Me: “How ironic that you say that. You look like a real life doll!”
