"My favorite thing to do has been like style, I love styling. I started sewing my own stuff, I started like really getting to know vintage and like really that's where I really started to get down to the nitty-gritty of vintage. So now I can take a piece and I can date it back to like its country of origin or like if it was made in a time of war. Every garment has a story and so like I can take it down to the decade, like well you know there is a reason why there was only such like a certain amount of fabric put into this garment because maybe there was scarcity or maybe it’s a certain length because there was war or some regulations and just its like I think that’s really for me that’s the coolest thing that I have developed. Because now I have a passion for it and I have gone and really studied a lot of garments and studied how to preserve them and date them back.”
