BRB just going to file this under my Things I didn’t know I needed: A Tiger Print Duster Coat moodboard. British designer Hayley Menzies started out with a stall at Portobello Market, and keeps her collections small and considered – but with maximalist tendencies.
When I was growing up my parents couldn’t always afford the latest and coolest fashion some of the other kids were wearing at school. So, I developed a fondness for thrift stores and would reinterpret the latest trends with secondhand and vintage pieces. I guess my style also reflects a lifestyle. I felt a true sense of belonging when I started going to raves back in the ‘90s. I would embellish lacy knickers and bras with a feather boa – usually in white so the UV light would pick me out and the MC would give me a shout out. My aesthetic is all about being noticed.
