I always prided myself for having an excellent vision, and wore glasses only for fashion sake.
But, lately I've noticed that my eye sight is not that well! I've been hesitating to visit an optometrist
for months, and finally I did it, and guess what I have to wear glasses for reading and when working
on a computer! OK... no problem! But, the problem was choosing the right frame, the one that would
suite me, that would be of high quality and fashionable as well. I tried on a couple of frames in an
optical store, maybe I'm too picky but none of them seemed good enough, and I decided to wait and
check out some other stores. Few days later, as if they knew, I was contacted by an online eyewear
store PRET A VOIR to do a review for one of their sunglasses or eyeglasses. I couldn't say no. They
have a huge range of super stylish designer glasses. I went through their offer and there they were,
perfect black cat eye glasses by Ray Ban. The cat eye shape has been around for a while now and
enough time has probably passed for them now to be deemed classic. I couldn't be more happier
when postman brought them to my door. They are comfortable to wear, lightweight and I can't
wait to pop them prescription lenses and act nerdy XD
Do you like my choice? Are you a glasses wearer?
Are you picky when it comes to choosing a frame?

1. What were the first steps you took in the world of fashion?
I have always had my hands in fashion one way or another.
After studying Fashion Merchandising in college, I bounced
around doing a lot of merchandising, and window display
jobs, and then to managing a vintage clothing store. Granted
it was a roller coster ride, I really learned all aspects of the
business, allowing to take that, and put it towards in my
2. Why is reviving old clothing so appealing to you?
What made you start cutting, distressing, bleaching,
and dirtying up T-shirts and boots in the first place?
There is just something about used, beat up garment that
is beautiful to me. If these garments could speak, the stories
they would tell would be priceless. I became fascinated with
going out, and looking at the wear and tear of garments, and took these ideas and started creating my
own version. It's a form of tribute to the lost and forgotten, and usually thrown out pieces.
3. How long does it usually take to create a piece? Can you describe us a process of creating one of your T-shirts? It really depends on the piece. A leather jacket for instance could take up to 2 weeks. I never really plan out what I'm going to do, it really just starts to come together as I'm working on it. I could have an idea in my head, start putting the jacket together, and completely change my idea in the middle and have a totally different outcome. I feel if I were to plan anything, I would go crazy with all the thoughts in my head.
4. Where do you find inspiration for your designs? Looks like music has to play a big partin what you do. Music is a huge part of my inspiration. I go through phases with music. Right now I'm in a 90s grunge phase, which brings me back to my teenage years. I do a lot of my thinking when working and it's really great thinking of old memories from when I was a teenager. I'm also super inspired by my neighborhood, the east village of NY. So much rock and roll history is here, and I really want that feel to play a part in my designs. 5. Do you consider yourself an artist? I absolutely consider myself an artist. My mind is always going a mile a minute, and I'm able to use clothing as a form of canvas to express my thoughts.
6. How would you define your personal style?
A mixture of many different genres of rock and roll...
7. What are your plans for the future?
That's always something I really never like to think of. I live my life day by day. I have become super
content with my life, and am happy that people enjoy what I do today. I don't plan on stopping
what I'm doing, so the thoughts of the future for me are pretty much endless.
8. Any advice to young designers?
Don't give up and believe in your true self. Today's society really tries to tell the new generation
who to be and how to act. Individualism is the most attractive virtue.
