SK: Do you have a favorite item of yours?

SK: What are your favorite current trends/styles?

SK: Who are your favorite designers?
J: Definitely Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Missoni.
SK: Are there any other Etsy shops you love?
SK: Who is your fashion/style icon?
J: Exene Cervenka from the band X! Best style, best hair, best voice, best band ever!
