My fashion inspiration is and will always be my mom. Growing up, I would always see her sew her own clothes and I witnessed other people come to her with their clothes to fix/make. I would always say, "thats so dope, I want people to like my art and passion for what I love so much that they trust me with their own pocessions!" My mother taught me that fashion does not have to be so serious and boring. She would bring home the ugliest fabrics sometimes and make ugly things on purpose & we would wear them and laugh forever. That is why till this day I find it sad when people can't find the joy in fashion, or when people take themselves way too seriously.
My fashion goal is to become a stylist, well it changes up sometimes to being a designer but that's perfectly fine because I'm still young enough to explore both. It's just something about styling.... I would often give my friends shirts to wear & the happiness i experience from that alone is amazing, so I can't wait until I get to just create someone's entire look one day, that would make me happiest. Fashion is my form of art and it means everything when people appreciate it.
My struggle with fashion is like no other but one struggle that I know alot of people can relate to is being a muslim female. From the beginning, we are taught that fashion is not for us, well I want to be proof that it is, whether you like how i dress or not I am proof that we are taking steps forward, we can dress how we want, act how we want and people can still love us! I not only aspire to be in the fashion industry but also to change the world with my voice, the best way to relate to people is through fashion and im figuring out how I can put all my social justice views and fashion together, my goal is to perfect it. These are the two most important things in life to me. I always felt like I may not be good enough, smart enough, pretty enough but you could never take away my knowledge of fashion and social justice. That's what I'm best at. I think we all need to find those few things we're amazing at and perfect them. One question I always get asked is where i shop. I really do wish i had an interesting answer for that but truthfully when I'm not making clothes/ wearing clothes my mom has made then im either thrifting (goodwill specifically, found some of my best pieces there) or forever21/h&m, american apparel alot now because I have to as an employee. But thats about it, basically any cute store in the mall will have 1 or 2 amazing pieces if you look hard enough.
