You can blame it on having been raised with two brothers, surrounded by skate and surfer friends; but I have always had a pre-disposition to feel my best while wearing androgynous pieces and sneakers. This was very much to my mother’s disappointment, who despite her best efforts (think pink and flower pattern everything) was not able to influence me to change.
I was one of the few girls to have boys as homies and to be part of their "boys club" at an early age. I was also the girl who loved sports, competition and some adventure. That meant you needed to be able to move around comfortably and not to be afraid to get a little dirty; sometimes I wonder how I got a career in fashion. Now and then I will put on a dress and heels, regardless of what you normally wear, there is always a time to play dress up.Photo by Signe Nickel
