I always said if fashion didn’t fall into my lap first, I would have pursued a career in music. Like herion to an addict, it’s something I must consume everyday to feel alive. My earliest memories include rocking out to bands like Fleetwood Mac & Marshall Tucker Band alone in my room. Although, in my mind, I was entertaining a crowd of thousands. To this day, there will always be an inner rock god looking to take center stage. Unfortunately, I haven’t gone platinum yet, but I sure as hell feel like have when it comes to my look.
Tom Ford said it best, whenever he’s feeling down he puts on a suit to make him feel like a million dollars. I love that about fashion. It’s one of the reasons why I got involved in this industry. Whether you want to you feel like a million dollars or rockstar, that’s the power that fashion holds to those who understand it. To many it’s just stuff, but to others it’s their armor they put on everyday to fight life’s unexpected battles.
