Label your style: "Urban weaver meets belly dancer"
So do you belly dance?
I do. It's one of those things - once you start doing it, you find that it influences a lot of aspects of your life, including your clothing.
I assume being a designer influences your style, too?
I'm very particular about fabrics. If I find something with a beautiful woven fabric, then I'm like, "I have to have this." Even if it's in a too-small size, but there's only one of them, and there's something inspiring about the weave or the colors, I sometimes have to get it just to pull it out to look at it.
What do you gravitate toward?
I usually wear a lot of black with a splash of color. Even if this was a black top and jeans, I'd probably still have a scarf around my neck or in my hair. So it's nice that I feed my own scarf addiction.
Where do you like to shop?
I find myself online, late at night, shopping. I love Anthropologie for dresses. I like Boden, a company out of the UK - I like their sensibility with colors, it's a very English way of looking at colors or patterns.
You smell very good. What are you wearing?
I wear Addict by Dior. That's kind of my signature fragrance.
