Q & A with Fashion Guru Christel Richards


w.christelrichards.4.18What peaked your interest in fashion? 
When I was in grade school, I decided that I didn’t necessarily want to dress and look like everyone else, so that really inspired me to look at fashion in a more creative way.
Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?
Vera Wang. All of her clothes are very unique yet classy.
Do you want to go into fashion when you grow up?
No, I just think it’s fun to express myself through my clothes.
Which clothing item do you repeat the most? 
My black leather ankle boots.
What clothing item in your wardrobe can you not live without and why?
My black t-shirt. It goes with and can be layered under almost anything.
What is your favorite fashion style and why?
I don’t really have a favorite fashion style. I like aspects of a variety of styles but a lot of the time I enjoy seeing what’s on the runway and trying to make it a bit more wearable.
How often do you go shopping?
I don’t go on big shopping sprees that often. I just tend to accumulate items over time.
Why do you never repeat an outfit? 
I like to mix and match what I have-it’s fun to see what kind of outfit I can come up with.
Where do you buy most of your clothes (your favorite places to shop)?
H&M, Forever 21, Kohl’s
