How long have you been working as a photographer?
I have been working as a photographer for about a year now.
What do think is the best about having a creative profession?
The best about having a creative profession is to create. I love to do creative stuff all the time. Sewing my own pieces, styling or photographing. There are really no boundaries and you can create whatever you want and have fun.
What inspires you in your everyday life?
Ah, everything. I get inspired by music and music videos, my family, my boyfriend, friends and people who choose to do what they love no matter what others may say.
How would you describe your own style?
That´s a good question. I would describe my style as my own, I usually just wear whatever makes me comfortable and makes me feel good. Most of the time I wear baggy tees and jeans with a pair of sneakers and no make-up, but I love pieces that stand out, are timeless and vintage.
Is there one piece in your closet you can’t live without? In that case, why?
My go-to hoodie from Acne Studios, I basically wear it whenever i don´t know what else to wear, haha.
Envelope1976 belives in sustainability and classic pieces, is there an item that you think never will go out of fashion?
A blazer. You can wear it in so many ways and it is a piece that you can wear in whatever your style is.
What is your best advice for how to reuse clothes?
Make something new out of something old and style it in a different way. People often use pieces in just one way, but you can be creative with everything. I made a dress out of an old oversized shirt and a skirt out of tablecloths, so why not?
What do you do to have a greener lifestyle?
I buy vintage, buy less food, eat less meat and bring my own bag to the grocery store.
