From your musical tastes to your political views, were you ever way ahead of the rest of us, adopting the new and the emerging before everyone else?
The only Avant Garde quality I have is my obsession and adoration for avant Garde fashion!
Ever since I was little I’ve always been fascinated by costumes and creative, artistic pieces of fashion, or wearable art – even when I didn’t even know what avant Garde was or meant.
It was so mesmerising – to see something so completely different to any regular ‘fashion’ and it wasn’t a costume in a show, and see people losing their minds over this stuff… The volume and the intricacies and the detail were and are breathtaking.
I wouldn’t say I was ever ahead of the curve or trend, more so my interests were just generally different to the norm, and I like to think those qualities are what made me special and unique growing up.
It’s nice to be different sometimes.
