When it comes to clothing you want that feel-good factor and I believe style comes from the heart and your mind and when you tap into that and on what you wear then that is where the magic happens.
Letting your personality shine through
I have just started working in partnership with Kezia Gill a fierce singer-songwriter based in the Midlands who is known for her individual and incomparable style. Kezia has been singing for 15 years and performs all over the UK and also worldwide her eclectic sound brings a wave of energy when she performs that flows down into her unique style.
With new material in the pipeline, I’m incredibly excited to work with Kezia to create a bold badass leather jacket through my custom service that represents her personality and her music.
We align so well together through a love for music, style and to be able to create something that screams her personality using my knowledge of design and sewing is just the most empowering collab
So why music and style?
Music and style go hand in hand and that’s not to say that you should dress a certain way just because of what you listen to it’s about feeling the energy and expressing yourself. There’s already so much pressure for people to fit in and look a certain way, that shouldn’t define you.
It’s about reigniting that passion for who you are and kicking ass with style I know this from personal experience.
When I struggled with grief and low self-esteem I disliked everything about myself, It’s taken for me to reignite my passion and work on my mindset to feel 100% confident in my rad style again.
Music has been a big help throughout all of my life. I am and always will be a big fan of the 80s and love the power dressing that comes along with it. It brings a sense of edge when it comes to styling. I love certain icons like Madonna, Cher, Dolly Parton and the queen Stevie Nicks they’re all iconic people with empowering style who aren’t afraid to be who they are not to mention some killer leathers in their wardrobe.
Embrace anything, your style is your style and if you want to wear that pink shirt with leopard print trousers and listen to Celine Dion, then why the hell not!
Kezia’s styling is a huge part of her stage presence this is what she had to say: It’s so important that I feel good on stage and if I feel fierce in a great outfit it takes my confidence up a notch. I also love the way clothes can move on stage. Tassels that swing and sequins that shine as you move all add special little details to a performance. The music and fashion all come together!
I have always preferred classic and vintage fashion as opposed to throw-away fashion. If I’m lucky enough to get my hands on a ‘piece’ that I love, I’ll wear it time and time again. Like my green tassel boots! I bought them in Australia whilst on tour and they’ve become as much a part of my image as my red hair and tattoos! I’m a big believer in a sustainable fashion. People don’t expect you to sing a different song every time you perform so why the need to wear a different outfit? Have a wardrobe collection that you love and you will always feel good on stage.
With Kezia’s love for vintage and timeless pieces and my love for creating one of a kind slow garments this is going to be a very unique badass leather that will last a lifetime, so come follow us on our socials to see the magic unfold between us.
