What is a favourite piece of art?
It is Water Woman by a Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu, it is rather like a mermaid, and I love it. It’s an outdoor metal sculpture and it’s really tranquil and beautiful.
Favourite Austin recommendation?
I am really such a homebody, but I like Hoover’s Cooking restaurant, it is Black-owned soul food, I always order the catfish! As for bars, the Empire Control Room is great for music.
Most treasured piece of jewellery?
I like wearing a head chain. I like the way it looks; it is fun and as I keep my head shaved it is like a wig. I have been experimenting making some of my own with different materials.
Favourite fashion spot?
I am trying to make a lot of my own clothes as my style is unique so it's hard to find clothes that I love, but I also shop in the Texas Thrift Store in Austin – it’s great for t-shirts and dresses. I also like Zenni Optical for the coolest shades.
Where do you paint?
My studio is in my home in Austin, it has a really big window and I like the way the sun pours in.
The last great book you read and band you listened to?
I loved the autobiography of André Leon Talley; it is just so interesting about his dream and experiences in the fashion world. I love an Austin band called Magna Carda, they play hip hop and are really chill.
