What does the word "Muse" mean to you?

A Muse is timeless. I consider myself my own Muse because I'm always changing and multi-dimensional. My style reflects my moods. I love creating out of the box looks because being ahead of the curve when it comes to how I put clothes together.

How does your career influence and inspire your approach to dress?

I've been working in fashion for 10+ years, and it has definitely elevated the way I dress and influenced my diversity in regards to colors, patterns, textures and layering them together. Life is layers, as is clothing. As a full-time model, I'm also motivated to be in a show stopping look at any moment. It’s never "Am i doing too much?" but more so, "How can I do more?"

If you could be front row at any runway show, who would it be and why?

I would have loved to attend any JPG or Alexander McQueen runways in the 90s or early 2000s. Those are two of my favorite designers and their collections live on through the masses at this very moment. Timeless and inspirational.

What are three closet staples for a never fail silhouette?

First and foremost, I'd say my Miu miu platform clogs because a sky rocket high vintage shoe never fails. A good white oversized collared shirt can be paired with so many looks. An LBD, whether it's mini, form fitting, or maxi, is a must.

What trend or specific piece is on your fall fashion wishlist?

I don't follow trends however I am dying to add a floral Balenciaga knife boot to my shoe collection. I’m a shoe fanatic. I need them in a crazy print. You can never fail with a sharp pointy toe boot.
