Fashion has always been my creative outlet. I remember growing up with uniforms and dress codes, but more importantly free dress days where I would show off the clothes I had carefully chosen but could rarely wear. Today, my closet is in a constant state of downsizing. My goal is to curate the most creatively inspiring personal collection with the fewest possible clothes. The right jacket, or pants, or shoes, or hat creates a mood, but what is more important, even sacred to me, is the process of creating the outfit — mixing pieces in unusual ways and playing with styles, colors, lengths and layers.
Lucid Muse gives me the opportunity to curate a collection beyond what I personally want in my own closet. The idea of someone finding what I’ve picked out as a precious new addition to their own wardrobe is almost more exciting than finding a new addition to my own. And in a market that is one of the top polluters worldwide, it is so important to me to be a part of the sustainable revolution.
