I found this Fashionista walking out of Moore College of Art and Design. Her monotone grunge yet feminine look intrigued me to highlight her in this week’s FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT. Her pieces have feminine silhouettes, however, the dark monotone palette and leather accents give her look a grunge twist. Grunge and feminine are not two categories which are normally considered to be achievable in one look. This Fashionista provides a good example of these two categories colliding which many can take inspiration from. She even shared her tattoo of Philadelphia’s skyline on the back of her neck with me. Not only did I love it, but I was very interested as she explained the meaning behind the tattoo to me. I then saw her clothes as not just as an outfit, but her own style. Her outfit was very city chic with a twist of grunge and her love of the city is shown through the tattoo. All of these elements combined show her personal style and who she is. Every Fashionista/o should aspire to find a style which they feel comfortable in and shows who they are.
