Ms. Ecka gave us an insight on her approach to the fashion game, and some secret pointers all women should follow.
Why do you think the 90s were such an influential time period?
I think the 90s were influenced in several different ways. One way obviously was the bold pops of color. It was such an addictive and eclectic time period. Not just that, but I love how influential attitudes were on fashion. The 90s was filled with unique personality and people who didn’t let others dictate their mood.
When you’re going out, what is a must-have for you?
I have to have on a pair of cute shoes. Of course us ladies can’t live without a good shoe! Pair that with some light colored jeans and a white top, and it’s the perfect timeless look
Do you dress for the weather or how you’re feeling at the time?
Definitely for feeling. I always want to be comfortable, but I want to have real expression through my wardrobe and style.
What would you tell women who’s getting dressed in the morning?
Consider your comfort. It is always, ALWAYS important to be comfortable. That doesn’t always mean having on a comfortable pair of shoes. Wear something that makes you comfortable being exactly who you are, and don’t try to be anyone else. Be unique and be yourself. Every time you get dressed that should be the focus.
