Mix of graphics I'm working on right now at Rocawear Men's... don't be scured!


+ Also below is the translation of the interview I had in French Public magazine (here) I know a few of your asked for :):

>>> Who are you writer of fade to Black?
My name is Gemma and I'm a designer for Rocawear men's. I'm originally from England where I studied fashion design and I after graduating I got offered a job in New York so here I am.
 
>>> How did the idea of the blog came to you?

Well I work in menswear as my full time job but my passion really lies in womenswear so I thought of my blog as an outlet for my womenswear that I really wanted to get out there!

>>> How would you describe your style?
My style... since I've been asked this question so much lately I actually have been trying to figure it out and I think I got it....
I would say it's a mix between rock/hippie chic... because I am actually obsessed with both genres.... I am in love with boho chic jewelry and slouchy hippie silhouettes but at the same time I love to wear black leather, thick eyeliner and mess around with different lipstick shades so lets just say hippierockchic for now...haha

>>> Have you met other fashion bloggers? French ones?

I have met a lot of fashion bloggers but unfortunately not any french, which is a shame because a lot of my favourite bloggers are either French or Scandinavian so they are so far away...  I also find that most of my favorite american bloggers are in LA... what's up with that?
 
>>> Do you do something else in life?
Other than my day job I also make clutches and sell them through my blog... which is cool. I love making things.
 
>>> What is the fashion capital for you? New York? Paris? London?
They are all incredible but I have to say (without being biased) London (maybe a bit biased). I love the grittyness and also I find London street fashion to be "unexpected".... every time I go home for a visit the style never fails to impress me.
 
>>> Any advice to give to get your stylish attitude?

Be comfortable with yourself and just have fun rrraagghhhhh!!! haha
