Lux Style & Design is proud to house a talented roster of designers and stylists that caters to various audiences in the Houston area, and we want to give you an in-depth look at the inner workings of the brand straight from the founders. Introducing Behind the Brand, a blog series that takes a closer look at the designers and style curators that are featured on the Lux Style & Design platform.
Behind the Brand is all about showcasing the minds of our stylists and designers, but we wanted to give you a glimpse into who’s behind the Lux Style & Design brand. This month’s interview is all about our fabulous intern K’Mari Brown, a Fashion Retail Management major at The Art Institute of Houston who is expected to graduate in March 2019. She’s also the curator of our Look of the Week!
Lux Style & Design: Who are your fashion inspirations?
K’Mari: Most of my fashion inspiration comes from social media, and Fashion Bomb Daily is one of the outlets that I frequent. FBD has really changed the way people from all walks of life view fashion, and the brand really focuses on showcasing fashions in a way that allows those who love fashion to exchange opinions and create a community.
LSD: If you could only keep three staple items in your closet, what would they be?
K: It’s essential for me to keep a nice pair of black denim jeans, a graphic t-shirt, and a pair of Old Skool Vans in my closet.
LSD: What are your favorite fashion trends?
K: Dad sneakers, fanny packs and athleisure.
LSD: Describe your style in three words.
K: Chic, edgy and bold.
LSD: Out of all the classes you’ve taken thus far at The Art Institute, which class was your favorite and why?
K: Trends & Concepts because it allowed me to compare and contrast past, present and future trends. I was able to see garments evolve through a time span, which gave me an eye to spot future trends and watch them gain popularity in major fashion markets.
LSD: Do you live by any fashion rules and if so, what are they?
K: There are many misconceptions about fashion rules, which is why I don’t live by any. I believe that when you’re getting ready for a girls night out or a day in the park, you should be focused on comfortability and be confident in what you are wearing instead conforming to fashion rules like not wearing white after Labor Day.
LSD: Where do you see yourself in five years?
K: I see myself becoming a fashion editor for a major fashion publication. My career is just beginning, and I plan to work towards that goal by attaining as much knowledge and experience as I can by learning the ins and outs of the fashion editorial world.
