What is EVERYDAYISAFASHIONSHOW.COM?

An online showcase of my personal style, eardrum breaking creative voice and a few fashion related things I've done that I'm proud of. I hope it also serves as a place for inspiration. 

Inspiration?

Yes, for those interested in also attaining personal style nirvana and not giving a damn about outside opinion.

What's the secret?

Attitude. The only thing that stops complete self-expression is allowing your self-worth to be decided by others. When the   self-conscious vultures of society sense you aren't looking for their approval, they won't try to rip you apart. 

"Every day is a fashion show" is pretty self-explanatory, but care to elaborate anyway? 

The site name derives from constantly being asked over the years where I was going because of my personal style. I eventually started responding with "every day is a fashion show!" and it stuck. The thing I love about fashion is that style options are limitless and each day presents a new canvas. "365 Style", as I like to call it, is wearing a fringe veil one day and octopus tentacles the next.

What inspires your style?

Everything.

Your work? 

Cindy Sherman was the first artist to have a large impact on my life. The concept of being a one-woman band and applying several crafts for a single project, i.e. self-portraits, is exhilarating. When I was a kid I loved making clay sculptures, I suppose making fashion accessories and manipulating clothing evolved from that. I'm most interested in creating fashion that's aesthetically interesting, educational or has a statement behind it.                  

You're not on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.       Why is that?

Not YET. Although I think it's wise from a personal branding/ visibility standpoint, as an outsider I've been uninterested up until this point because social media comes off a bit tortured and invasive. I guess I've just been avoiding the inevitable though because in the future business will conquer emotion and I'll become just another victim. #killme

On that note, any last words? 

Talk is cheap, it's time to go create something.
