We are meeting @KarisRenee : Fashion Addict | Makeup Junkie | Style Influencer | Creative Director | Dessert Devourer as her Instagram's bio says !
Introduce yourself !
My specialty is style. My direction is creative. Apparel, social media, graphic, computer-aided design, product development and digital campaign execution, specifically in the fashion industry and eCommerce growth.
Describe us your style !
Streetwear chic with splashes of unique pieces. I aim to convey high end style without paying a high end price. Good style does not have to cost millions... just look like it.
Have you ever refused a deal with a brand ?
Yes. I will not work with companies that are built upon fundamentally different values than my own that I cannot confidently cosign. Realistically, I think that the influencer must agree with what a brand stands for (from style to message), as one's following is precious & irreplaceable. To put my name on something that I do not believe in would be a disservice to those who follow me, and I value that relationship very highly.
This makes upcoming brand collaborations all the more important & exciting, as deals like this are relationship based.
What is your favorite trend of the moment ?
My favorite trend right now is large sunnies, full hair, and anything with pockets. These are all elements of my personal style that I hold dear.
Mix & Match is a fun print, color, & texture trend that I love but have yet to successfully pull off :)
The Post-Minimalism trend is also one that I love from a far (Think Solange Knowles). This amount of volume is not right for me just yet, but I'm obsessed with it.
Sleeve Slits & Hem Accents are personal favorites that I try to incorporate wherever I can. Prabal Gurung can do no wrong with me.
Where your inspiration is coming from ?
Street style, vintage shops, music artists, fashion week, and retro photo albums
If you were a piece of clothing ?
If I were a piece of clothing, I'd be an exposed shoulder, lace bell sleeve blouse with perfect clavicle view.
A country ?
France. In November.
If you had a super power which one would you choose ?
What are your influences ? Your models ?
Interior design, anything Knowles, tattoo art, metallics, pop art, coffee table fashion books, record shops, fabric stores.
