What’s your role at OAK + FORT and how does your job there play into your style?
My current role is Menswear Stylist and Social Media Coordinator at Oak + Fort Head Office. I do a number of things that also include assistance in Men’s brand development and I create content for and manage both Instagram accounts @oakandfort and @oakandfortman.
I have always had a love for menswear even before I started to work in the fashion industry. My job allows me to showcase my passion for menswear as the many pieces I wear on a day to day basis in and outside of work, are men’s pieces or can be considered unisex. I feel like I can easily relate to both customers as my personal style/ wardrobe represent both sides and also break gender roles in fashion.
What were you thinking when you got dressed this morning? if “this morning” refers to the day we shot the photographs- If I misinterpreted this question please let me know :)**
To be honest, I woke up thinking I haven’t worn these pants in a while and I love them to death except that I haven’t had time to get them hemmed!
Do any of the pieces you are wearing have a story?
My coat I think has a unique story because I found it in my closet about 5 months ago. It was just before the time I saw that Juicy Couture was back on trend watch with an Urban Outfitters exclusive collaboration. I bought this jacket when I was probably 14 years old at Nordstrom Rack and had completely forgotten about it ever since. It was a rare find at a perfect time because not only is Juicy Couture “somewhat” back in style, but puffer jackets also made a huge comeback this winter too. It makes me want to be a hoarder and never throw any of my old clothes out!
