Throughout my life, my love and admiration for fashion and style have always been inherently deep. At a young age, I found myself fascinated with patterns, prints, color schemes, and even textures. In high school, I yearned for shoes, handbags or any accessory that showed the world exactly what I wanted it to see of me. My room, filled with images cut out of magazines, showcased pieces that I believed were the answer to any fashionista prayers. Yes, my love for fashion is genuine and wholehearted… but I can’t say that it has always loved me back.
