A fresh and minimalist take on street-wear, he mixes and matches hues and silhouettes in accordance of his personal take on the latest trends and must have kicks of the season.

When it comes to imparting advice on how to break through in the fashion area, his hot take is to stray away from the noise and pinpoint what your style really is. It goes beyond simply copying a fit and delving deep into a sense of style that resonates with one’s authentic self rather than being a complete rip-off.

The fashion creative sums up his go-to style as elevated basics, simple earthy tones, comfortable but fitted clothes.

"This might sound cliche but being yourself is the key. While there’s always going to be a bandwagon you’ll be tempted to jump on, it’s always better to add your unique spin to everything you do."

"I’m totally for the sustainable wave, it’s no secret that the fashion industry is one of the top polluting industries. However, it’s quite promising to witness brands like Levis taking in old denim and opting to recycling and refurbish fabrics. For me personally, Thrifting and up-cycling is something I swear by."
