My love of fashion has always been there too supposedly...I just remember constantly drawing princess dresses over and over when I was young and different dresses and outfits and giving them names.... I particularly remember one looking like a black and white tiered wedding cake with a matching hat and I called it 'too choosy' for some reason

I think its also from some of the little matching outfits my mam would dress me in that I just loved wearing, another initial influence were the disney films, in particular Beauty and the Beast I used to sit by the fire in my house with my housecoat tied round my waist and spread in a perfect circle on the floor like in one of the scenes

My mam always had me doing crafty things at home; art, drawing, small sewing projects, knitting, cross stitch, embroidery, taking me to art galleries, museums and national trust houses with fantastic interiors. She also kept a 'dressing up bag' of her old clothes that I used to make outfits from or just used to prance about in around the house.

I just love it

I was obsessed with ballet dancers dresses. My Mum bought vogue so I used to devour it. My gran was also realy interested in clothes. My Grandpa (on my dads side ) was a tailor so that helped too as his house had loads of old patterns & fashion books from the forties in it.

There is still some fabric I think - huge rolls of it. The patterns and books are long gone. When my grandpa died my mum found a beaded flapper dress in the house & chucked it out - what an idiot? sad really.

I used to draw outfits and send them to Lady Diana!!

My mum taught me to sew and knit when I was really young, and it all started from there...don't know if that's a good or bad thing. Not a good industry to make money from!!

Initially, graduating from high school propelled me into getting as far away from that all-over state-of-mind as possible. Which meant no more looking like everyone else in boring stuff from Gap, etc. It's odd, though, because I never really thought about clothes much before that. I guess I just realized somehow that everyone around me looked the same; it was a clone situation. And I think seeing fashion and makeovers and stuff on TV more and more got me thinking about it. Sounds silly, I know. And as I've grown more and more interested in fashion, I've realized it's another creative and expressive outlet for me, just like making music, drawing/painting, and skateboarding. So there you have it, basically.
