You have worked with several streetwear brands, which of these would you recommend for people who are not familiar with style?

Ans :
Well, I wouldn’t say I have worked with familiar big brands far and wide, it’s really been more of the local breeds here. Personally, for me, I like poparti, Modav, and carly wears. Their distinctive style does it for me.
Recently, streetwear has seen an increase in popularity, What are your thoughts on the mixing of streetwear as high fashion, especially as seen on the runway this past season?
 Ans :
Runway stylists can be very tricky and fluid. In the sense that, they often embrace finessing and “ fine art “ just to pacify the art of runway fashion, in which half the times is a little bit on the edge for your daily wardrobe consumption. Recently, streetwear has somehow circumvented to high-fashion scenery especially with the footwork and sorts— of which, I must say, is undeniably a joy to behold.45540776-AE8D-4636-815A-31D4C7F14804
