As Erin walked into the studio, the first thing that we caught her saying was “I want to be a walking rainbow!” Funky, bold and girlie at a glance, she loves outfits that come in striking hues and patterns – better still if they're in pink or purple! “I love these two colours the most, and black makes me sad,” she explains. But that doesn’t mean that she’s completely shunned it off as Erin admits that over the years, she’s learned how to mix and match different quirky prints and textured outfits together to make her look pop. “Harry Styles, Michael Jackson and David Bowie have amazing jackets; the blitz and androgyny might look #extra to some but I don’t mind wearing their clothes anytime, anywhere!” she exclaims.
Everyone has their go-to picks for lazy days and as for Erin, she’d go with her culottes, sneakers and black suede choker. “Expressive pieces – mini statement bags, colourful socks and turtlenecks are what I look out for the most and fashion goes beyond just following the latest trends. It is about being who you are,” she says. One of the things that Erin would love to see herself achieve would be to work with her favourite labels like Monki and Zara to channel more happiness via fashion in the future. “I’m looking forward to the styling course that I intend to take up next year,” she says.
