A peak inside Janet’s creative life, get a sense of her unique style and inspiration.
Where do you get the majority of your inspiration? And how does it impact you and your style?
Most of my inspiration comes from other fashion influencers and sometimes people off the streets of New York. I always see street style as my go-to inspiration. It impacted me in a way where it made me boost my confidence and self-assurance as I saw people with similar taste as me.
Do you think social media has changed or affected you and your style if so, how?
Social media has definitely changed me as a person. It made me work harder in life and strive towards my goals. As my feed started to grow, it allowed me the opportunity to connect with people all around the world and gave me advantages such as going to NYFW. As I realized the circumstances, I switched up my lifestyle a little bit and became more productive. It changed my style in a way where I opened up to everyone and became bold. My style started to change up as new trends started to arise.
When did you first get into fashion and how has your upbringing affected it?
I started getting into fashion at a very young age. My parents were always supportive and understood the concept of fashion. They always believed I had something in me and that made me realize I had a chance in the fashion industry. But people I grew up with and went to school with didn’t really understand my sense of style.
Although I got made fun of at times, it made me become the person I am today. It made me try to reach to the top when people tried bringing me down. And that’s what made me work harder.
How does the city you live in inspire you and your personal style?
Since I live in New York, people all around me have a very unique sense of style. Everywhere I go, I would see people who would have very interesting taste. Something I’ve never seen before. Everyday, I would see at least one person who stands out. And that’s what inspires me. I want to become a person that stands out from others.
What creative work do you have planned for the future?
For the future, I plan on coming up with a few clothing pieces of my own! I have a few designs and hopefully they will be released soon.
