Here’s what the 27-year-old fashion designer had to share with the mag:
On building a wardrobe: “Whenever someone comes up to me and says, ‘I’m having trouble shopping.’ I tell them to pull out their 10 favorite, most-worn pieces, then build a wardrobe around them. You need to figure out what you gravitate toward, what makes you feel good—and those staples are going to be different for everybody.”
On the inspiration behind her fashion line: “At first, I was just designing for myself. Then I started getting comments from women who didn’t have my body type, saying things like, ‘I have a larger chest and can’t wear this tent-shaped dress.’ So I’ve learned to make pieces that don’t necessarily flatter me but look great on someone else.”
On what sets her apart from other celebrity designers: “I spent years in school for this. It wasn’t just, ‘I like clothes! I’m going to make some!’”
