Fashion lover, Amelia Shares her inspirations, dream collabs, and more with 1.11ven!
Who is Amelia, what do you want to be known for in this life time?
Amelia: Amelia is a person without limits. I really want to do everything, I really don’t want to put a limit to my creativity and my interests. My main theme that drives me is “aspire to inspire” which sounds corny to me but I’m not going to be here forever, but the next generation is going to be and it’s important for them to see a regular person like myself reaching and aspiring for more and not settling
Anyone who scrolls down your Instagram can clearly see your love for fashion! Who/what inspires your style?
Amelia: I get inspired by myself really. For me fashion is all about comfortability … not sure if that’s a word. But comfort and doing what works for me. Also whatever or whoever I feel like being on any given day. Some days I may feel like being really baggy and oversized with some TLC influence, and sometimes I want to layer and work with patterns and colors, or I’ll show some skin with a sports bra and some cargos. So inspiration can come from anywhere, I just always make sure I’m comfortable while doing it.
Can you describe your style in 3 words?
Amelia: I honestly can’t, I’m versatile and I’m me. I find it reaaaaaally hard to limit my style to just 3 words. It’s just me .
How do you distinguish yourself from other fashion lovers and bloggers online?
Amelia: I wouldn’t know because I don’t compare myself or build my image based around other people’s content. I’m Amelia and that’s what other fashion lovers/bloggers aren’t .
What impact has fashion and style have on your personal life?
Fashion and style is my personal life. It’s who I am, so I’m constantly staying updated with new or upcoming releases.
Favorite designers dead or alive?
Amelia: Ricardo Tisci, Demna Gvasalie, Virigl Abloh, Rei Kawakubo
What designer, creative, and/or company would you love to work with? *lets speak it into existence*
Amelia: Girrrrrrllll, I would love to work with Kith or Nike and if we’re talking big big Louis Vuitton !
When it comes to self-care, what are your favorite self-care rituals/tips?
Amelia: Disconnect. Sometimes you have to legit turn off your phone and shut everyone out to focus on you. Social media isn’t going anywhere… it can wait. I’m also a really big tea person.
Who is Amelia listening to music wise?
What was your 1.11ven moment/a time you realized you could do anything you set out to do?
Amelia: So around summer of 2018 I decided to test an idea of selling something under my own brand. I started POISE by AJEAN created my own logo and manufactured a pair of sunglasses to be sold under my name. It sold out within a week ! I was sooo shook at the fact that people not just from NY actually cared enough to spend their coins on my creation lol ! I decided to put POISE to the side for now but it’s definitely something I’m going to go back to.
What advice would you give to young girls when it comes to finding their own style and embracing their uniqueness?
Amelia: It’s OK. It’s OK to be different, It’s OK to experiment .Be as bold as you want with your hair and your makeup and your outfits as you want. I feel like a lot of girls feel held back because they don’t feel like they’re being too bold or that “they’re doing too much” but at the end of the day as long as you’re being true to yourself you can never go wrong.
What can we look forward to seeing from you in the coming months?
Amelia: I’m always working and brainstorming on how I can bring different content out, and I have some projects in the works right now. So definitely some new content will be out soon !
