How would you describe your style?
I would say my style is very pop, a little hip-hop, a little sporty and definitely Korean-influenced.

What types of things influence your style on a daily basis?
I definitely take inspiration from various elements of pop culture in my wardrobe, but what I actually find most inspiring is automotive and graphic design. I love the visual harmony and futuristic design outlook of the automotive industry in particular. I’m always trying to push this sort of a feeling with the clothes I wear.

If your clothes could talk, what would they say about you?
Hopefully good things! Honestly, I think they would beg me to add some colour to my wardrobe. I wear a lot of white and black. Black is an easy go-to for a lot of people, but I’ve been really into head-to-toe white lately.

Are there any pieces you would like to add to your wardrobe heading into summer?
I’m feeling the beret right now honestly, those are cool. I’m going to start collecting a lot of patches too, I’ve got a black jacket I want to cover in patches until I look like I’m apart of a NASCAR pit crew.

Local spots you like to shop?
Fresh Goods on South Park Street is hands-down my favourite local place to shop.
