Earliest fashion memory?
"Wearing platform sneakers inspired by the Spice Girls."
Describe your style?
"I'm drawn to statement pieces and usually work my outfit around one. However, when I'm in the mood to go all out, I will not hesitate to wear more than one statement piece together. After all, lifeâs too short to dress safe."
"I am influenced heavily by travel, local culture, and street wear. I really look up to Japanese street style and fashion."
"Irada, Joseph, Y-3, Uniqlo, Opening Ceremony, and Adidas."
"The Triratanachat sisters, Issey Miyake, TC Sibal, and Yohji Yamamoto."
"Joseph, Calvin Klein Platinum, Adidas, Y-3, and LCP in Manila; Nobody Has To Know, That Store, and Baskets in Amsterdam; LaCentral and Auzmendi in Spain; Colette, Deyrolle, COS, and Marni in Paris; Irada in Thailand; Homme Plisse, Opening Ceremony, Dover Street Market, and Kitsune in Japan; and Shakuhachi in Bali."

"There are no rules to fashion."
"Workout clothes, comfortable travel wear, statement pants, and shoes."
"I don't leave home without my wedding ring, wedding band, and diamond earrings from my mom. I also love my hats and hope to grow this collection on my future trips."
"A cropped top, statement pants, sneakers, and a backpack."

"My dog, Pintxo."
I can't live without...
