Growing up I was brought up on good ol’ rock and roll. My mother and father, both being musicians, had a very strong effect on my personal style growing up and has become the core of what my style has evolved into. Between the way my parents dressed themselves, down to the personal style of musicians I was brought up listening to, you can say music as a whole is the base of what has inspired my style into what It is today.
Throughout the most influential years of my life I was attached to my dads old photo albums. He has photos upon photos from his old New York City band days which I’d sit at for hours and look at in awe of how effortlessly cool him, my mom, and all their friends looked on stage preforming and just as cool off stage hanging out.
If you think about it, getting dressed and creating music are a lot alike. You shouldn’t have to think too hard about if something looks good on- or if something sounds good. Style should come natural to one self, as should music. If you have too think too hard about it, It’s probably not a right fit.
Till this day, music continues to inspire my style. What inspires yours?
