Fashionista/os can present such elegance and neatness with their style, whether it comes from their prints, garments or even statement socks! I was impressed and attracted to this fabulous looking Fashionista, who was outside of the RISD auditorium. Let’s see what she had to say about her personal style.
Name: Kisa Shiga
CollegeFashionista: What’s your favorite documentary?
Kisa Shiga: Raised in Queens, New York.
CF: If you could choose to live in another era, when would you live? ’70s, ’80s or ’90s?
KS: The ’80s or ’90s because of the music. Old school bass jams are too bomb.
CF: What inspires you when it comes to designing apparel?
KS: Growing up where I did really influenced me, and I think my work usually takes some elements from street/urban culture, along with the cleanliness of a Japanese aesthetic. But in general, I’m inspired by anything that was relevant to me growing up. Right now I’m working on a men’s collection that is inspired by PeeWee’s Playhouse and the movement in sound and music.
CF: For a casual evening in studio, what would we find you wearing?
KS: Nothing fancy–just a T-shirt, pants and fun socks.
CF: Do you follow any fashion blogs? Would you recommend any?
KS: I really don’t keep up with any fashion blogs.
How To: Are you inspired by Kisa’s look? Perhaps you are inspired by her styling! If you seek a similar look–with an assortment of statement garments–go shop at any store that carries unique printed garments, or even a good pair of conversational printed socks will suffice. These looks and particular garments can be found at Free People’s vintage store, Urban Outfitters and PIXIE MARKET. Explore the wide array of statement socks at Urban Outfitters and get creative with the accessories at PIXIE MARKET.
