Fuck the population
Creating prejudices
Fashion escapism

A few years ago, I already knew I wasn’t going to end up behind a desk. I never wanted to be like the rest and tried wearing new styles. People who insulted me, started wearing the same clothes and that way, many trends were set. I’m glad I kept wearing what I wanted, because the 10 insults a day now have become compliments.

I mostly dress to my mood, whether it’s 70’s-80’s-90’s, tactical, extravagant, colorful or just simple. Sometimes I just want to create prejudices, so when people get to know me better, I seem to not be as expected. Styling myself sometimes feels like escapism. It can be stressful, but the perfect outfit becomes the goal, and for a moment, I forget any worries.

Plain straight jeans can look like high end fashion if you combine them with the right shirt, shoes, glasses and accessories and that’s what I love about fashion. I like almost every piece of clothing, because I know it can suit someone very well. Accessories make your outfit, whether they’re simple (and the right style) or just extravagant. When I leave home, I always wear my rings. I even feel naked without them.

More than half of my wardrobe is second-hand. I like these pieces the most, second-hand clothes are very cheap, thrift shopping is fun and I know no one will have the same piece. Besides second-hand clothing, I’m also interested in hyped streetwear/high end fashion. As long as many people want it and not everyone can buy it, I want it. I hope to be able to set up a clothing brand later, although I also love modeling.

People often ask me why I cut my hair, as if I need a good reason to do so. Until around two years ago, I was very shy and doubted about everything even more than I do now. That changed when I started asking myself “why?”. Why should I care about what people think? Why should I feel insulted by what someone says about me? Why should I not wear a particular outfit, just because nobody else does or one person dislikes it? Why should I not be myself?

I came up with the motto ‘Schijt aan de menigte’, which translates to ‘Fuck the population’.
That sentence made who I am today.
