What made you get into fashion?

I’ve always been a huge of Tyra Banks watching ANTM got me interested in high fashion and Kanye West and pusha T is also is a huge influence on my love for fashion.
How do you come up with the concept for each collection?
Honestly I came up with the concept out of the blue, I always designed my clothes so one day one of my close friends looked at my outfit and said Vani why don’t you take this serious? You could go far. I decided that i wanted to do something that stood for individuality and represents the youth, hip hop & the city I come from. My 1of 1 collection varies from Hand painted Ski masks , faces covered with bandanas incorporated With flowers to show the grittiness and Beauty of where I come from at the same time . Each Piece comes with a legendary Hip Hop Lyrics the everyone can relate to .

Fashion to me is the best way of expression, clothes speak volumes and style is the best unsaid words. However you feel you can always express yourself through your outfit.
