Why did you choose fashion designing as a career?
I chose fashion design as a career because I love to see garments tell a story. The way you dress often tells your mood. Fashion plays a major role in our lives.
What things outside of fashion, inspire your clothing?
Outside of my clothing im inspired by God, love, nature, glam, extreme art and music.
In which area of design does your line fall under? (Ex: street fashion, ready to wear, haute couture)
Syeko falls under street fashion. Extreme Art that meets fashion.
Do you consider the environmental effects of the colors and prints you choose for your collection?
Yes I love nature. It plays a big part in my collection and the fabrics and colors I chose.
How do you balance creativity with commerce?
Im still learning to balance the two. When im designing I follow my heart and the creative passion I feel at that time. If I feel it I design it and it makes my clients feel Syeko. They love it.
Rules are meant to be broken, which are your favorite fashion rules to break?
I love a sick white pant suit all year long. Tailored waist with a wide leg is the hottest look to me.
How do you stay up to date regarding fashion?
I read alot of fashion magazines. And I pay attention to my clients, street fashion,vintage looks etc. When im out I study what consumers are wearing.
How has your personal history influenced your views on fashion.
I watched my grandmother get dressed up every Sunday. I studied fashion history at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. It made me appreciate how fashion has influenced us for centuries but we all have a love for it. Once again they expressed themselves through the art of fashion.
