Q) At what age did you realize you had such a passion for the fashion industry and why do you think you were so inspired?
A) Since I was 15 years old, I started to be interested in the world of fashion because I wanted to start dressing better. I think what moves me the most in this fashion universe is the way I feel when I wear a specific outfit or piece. I like the thing of “expressing yourself” by the way we dress.
Q) Do you have any favorite clothing brands, which you find yourself always spending all your money on?
A) I don’t have a specific favorite brand of clothing. Almost every week my friends and I go to the thrift store together, which is something extremely therapeutic for me. I feel that we have a universe of options and ideas that we can do with the reuse of an old piece.
Q) Why would you say that you were so interested in making music? Have you always had a need inside to create your own or is this a new passion that came to you?
A) The world of fashion and music are my main pillars. Since I know myself as a person I have been connected to music in an inexplicable way in everything I do. My musical project is a dream that is being realized after a lot of conversation with myself. I was very insecure and indecisive about everything I did, but I believe that now I found out what I really want to be.
Q) Your social media platforms are growing at such a quick rate! Thinking back a bit, was there anything specifically that helped your social platforms rise the way it did or was this more random?
A) I’ve been in this Internet world since 2018, and I’ve been through many things. When I am asked about how my platforms have grown I cannot answer, because it was a very natural and cohesive way, it was not a scare overnight. I think this is great because I was able to understand what was happening, understanding that I became a source of inspiration and voice for the millennials who follow me.
Q) Can you name a few songs that are currently in your playlist that are filling you with inspiration during the strange times the world is experiencing?
A) I am always looking for new artists to listen to, and lately, I have been listening to a new artist called Suki, she is incredible and her new song “Blessing” left me standing for days, I could only listen to her. I am also listening to a French artist called Lous and the Yakuza, her aesthetic is incredible and her voice is unique. Moving to the other side of the globe, I love to support the Brazilian scene that is increasingly spreading worldwide, and Duda Beat has an incredible album that deserves to be heard!
Here is a list of a few songs that I’m addicted to Suki – Blessing, Lous and The Yakuza – Dilemme, Benee, Lily Allen, Flo Milli – Pain, Planet 1999 – Party, Ariana Grande – POV
Q) For all our readers that have not yet visited Brazil. What would you say is your favorite thing about your home?
A) I love Brazil! We are an extremely passionate country for everything we intend to do. My favorite part of Brazil for sure is our mood and the way we live the world. Despite our political problems, we can always see something funny in everything that happens, which must be why we have so many memes. Another strength that keeps me loving my country is our diverse culture and our divine food.
Q) If you could wish for one thing right now and it would instantly come true, what would you wish for?
A) There is nothing I would want more than the stability of the universe and a world without prejudgement. We are moving towards the future and there is nothing worse than feeling that we are falling back on ideals. And I would also like to wish, dear diary, that this vaccine would come out soon so that I can connect with all the people I love and miss meeting.
