What inspired you to move in the direction of the fashion industry?
I feel like fashion has been a part of me since day one. People loved the way I dressed in elementary and middle school. Even in high school, I was nominated best dressed every year. I would travel to Atlanta, to my godmom’s house, and I would go shopping at Phipps Plaza, because you could get Louis Vuitton, Gucci, etc… so, as a young kid, I was exposed to this. I would go back to school and stunt on everybody! (Laughs) There’s a culture called Ball [an LGBTQ+ subculture], and I used to “walk” in fashion categories. I would also walk for a fashion house.
