I truly admire any Fashionista/o who knows how to mix and match prints and patterns. When I spotted this week’s Fashionista I instantly fell in love with how she showed off her creative side through her clothing. There is nothing more admirable than a Fashionista/o who loves to take risks.
Name: Ty’shon Hargrove
Major: Fashion Merchandising
CollegeFashionista: Who are you wearing?
Ty’shon Hargrove: Today everything I am wearing was from a thrift store from head to toe, my pants are reconstructed thrift and the earrings were made by me.
CF: What inspired your look today?
TH: I was inspired by comfort and the warm weather conditions.
CF: Who is your style inspiration?
TH: I am inspired by everyday people; living in the city is a very inspiring place; there are so many eccentric beings roaming the streets. Also, my family has served as a huge influence on my style, from my grandparents to my parents. I love and enjoy looking back at old photos and grasping a feel of inspiration from the peak of their individualized styles. Additionally, I am equally inspired by the effects of colors, designs and media stars. I believe I can go on forever, but I think you get the point! At the end of the day, my style is limitless and heavily influenced but nevertheless –– it is my own!
CF: Now that spring has finally hit Richmond, what spring trends are looking forward to?
TH: Personally, I just do my own thing!
How To: Recreating this look requires all Fashionistas to dig deep in their closets and pull out those unique and daring pieces. Starting this look off from the bottom, find a pair of printed pants. Right now Uniqlo, my latest obsession, has a fantastic selection of drape pants. Then find a crochet top and wear a denim shirt over it. Think beads for jewelry and make sure you have plenty of it like this Fashionista!
