"In the future, I think people are going to dress in a way that's a lot more original. As you grow older, you start to realize that fashion is more about self-expression and less about fitting in. I feel like we're going to start seeing a lot more unique pieces."

"I'm convinced that comfort is the future. People should dress comfortably and stylishly all the time. Especially girls. Girls are too worried about looking good and should think more about being comfortable. It gives you confidence."
