I saw this woman and her husband walking by and I decided to stop her because I loved the fact that she blended in with the graffiti art at Venice Beach.

Me: “What does fashion mean to you?”

Her: “Well, my husband buys for me. He knows about what I like more than I do!”

Her husband: ” My wife has never been that fashion conscious, but she gets compliments on the way she dresses without even trying. It just comes naturally for her!”

And then they excitedly spoke with me about my future goals and asked me to take a photo with them. I happily obliged!

Me: “What does fashion mean to you?”

Her: “Everyone is different and has their own individuality, and we should all embrace that. We should all know ourselves and embrace our styles.”

I was curious about her accent, so I asked her where she was from and what she was doing in California.

Her: “I’m from England. I’ve just been here couch surfing. I love it here in California because the people and the vibes are so chill.”

Me: “What does fashion mean to you?”

Her: “Well, my style has grown a lot since I’ve moved to LA. I’m originally from a small town and I never use to dress like this.”

“Fashion is a performing art. The street is my stage and everyday is a performance. People in America dress so casual because they are so afraid to offend. They take offense to how WE dress, but life is so short, and you have to have fun. Sweat shirts and hoodies all the time are boring! And then people ask me if I have a favorite fashion designer and I say no. Not because I’m arrogant or cocky.. Its just that I’m always changing.”

“Fashion is vibrancy, color, patterns, and textures. I feel very strongly about my cultural background, and for me not to, is me denying who I am.”

Her: “I’m wearing my snake as an accessory!”
Me: “Yes you are! All of those tattoos… I feel like your tattoos are your fashion. What is your tattoo goal? To cover your whole body? What does fashion really even mean to you?”
Her: “Yes they are and yes it is! I’m in cosmetology, so fashion for me is everything. Appearance is everything.”
