In Conversation With Iman D.
What inspires your fashion style?
Everything! The “vibe” of the city I’m in, the people I see on the streets, my #mood...
How do you put an outfit together?
I ask myself what I feel like wearing and go with that.
What's your style motto?
If you like it wear it.
Whose wardrobe would you like to raid?
My mom’s, she really knows what’s up haha.
If you could only keep three items in your closet, what would they be?
My silver creepers, ripped black jeans because they are comfy as hell, and probably my boxy denim jacket. That’s it, no top.
What do you hate most about fashion / the fashion industry?
The aspects of it I’m not a fan of (idea that fashion trends are rules, that it must be expensive, must be this or that, and sometimes the lack of “realness” and spontaneity) cannot be generalised to the whole industry. If I dislike something about a specific area of it I’ll just move on to another that fits my vision of fashion/style better.
What do you love most about fashion / the fashion industry?
The creativity, the fun, and the idea of creating experiences from something visual.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Either the Silicon Valley, because I love the energy and lifestyle there, or Ghana, because it fascinates me.
Do other art forms (music, film, literature, dance, painting etc.) influence your style?
If I come across a piece that influences my mindset, inspires me visually or conveys a “vibe” I like, then it might yep!
What's the best advice you've ever been given?
”Protect your peace. Get rid of toxicity. Cleanse your space. Cultivate love.”
