Tavi is quite obviously phenomenal, and a massive inspiration (she’s 4 years my junior, so its weird saying that, but it’s totally true.) She recently did a closet interview with Stylelikeu, and its really fantastic.
I really enjoy her style, first off. Tavi connects with her clothing on such an emotional and spiritual level, which is something I really love. Everything she wears, she connects it with memories, or a piece of pop culture – she constantly has ideas spinning around her head about what comes with each piece of clothing. It isn’t just an outfit to her, it’s a tangled web of memories and connections, it’s a mess of nostalgic art. Its something that doesn’t come around a lot these days. People like Tavi don’t exist anymore in fashion, she’s an old soul.
“That’s why something like a Rodarte show is so special, ’cause people let their guard down, they just let themselves enjoy it. You have to stay realistic about it. I’m not gonna go to a show like that where everyone’s acting all snobby and pretend that it’s glamourous, it’s kind of pathetic. It’s so high school…”
She has such a unique and beautiful view of the world and the fashion industry. She’s so logical, inquisitive and mature for her young age. I wish I could’ve been as intelligent, driven, and as fabulous at sixteen years of age. What an absolute beauty.
I’ve linked a preview above, and the Stylelikeu post and the full 7-minute video is here.
