The 25 years old from Toronto is no newbie when it comes to fashion. The part-time fashion blogger has a strong appetite to inspire. Find out what he thinks is the most important part about an outfit and how he feels about shepra. We talk about all this and more in our conversation with Matt.
What are your interests/hobbies?
Blogging & Instagram was my interest/hobby & I’m super happy I was able to turn that hobby into a passion/job. It’s a part-time job right now, but my goal is to make it a full-time job, real soon.
Other than Blogging, I love workout regularly & hanging with friends!
How long have you been into fashion?
I’ve been into Fashion from a really young age. I’d say early teens, when I started dressing myself & was gaining an interest in what was popular & trendy. I loved matching my outfits.
What got you into fashion?
Probably Pop Culture. Seeing what looked good on celebrities that inspired me, and me trying to dress similar to them, on a lower budget.
How would you describe your sense of style?
To be honest, I’m still trying to master my sense of style & find my specific style. Mostly, I’d say I dress pretty trendy. Not super edgy, but maybe a little edgy to some. I’d also say I’m a pretty moody dresser, so whatever my current #mood is in the morning, is what I’m going to base my style on. I generally dress super comfy on a regular basis though.
Where do you find your inspiration for your style? And what influences you the most?
I find most of my style inspiration through Instagram, actually! Instagram & sometimes Tumblr. Just seeing different people I follow or people on the explore page. There’s a ton of people that influence some of my fits & even some ideas for future Fits.
Who is your fashion spirit animal/who inspires you? And why? (artist, athlete, actor etc.)
I feel like its TOO BASIC to say Kanye, but It would probably be Kanye West.
What are your favorite fashion pieces? (hats, belts, hoodies etc.)
Jackets are DEFINITELY my weakness & Fashion MUST! I try not to buy MORE jackets, but I can’t help it! I have a ton & need more!
What are your favorite brands?
I love Stussy, Adidas, Champion & Alpha Industries.
What current fashion trends are you loving right now? Which ones are you hating?
Right now, Sherpa is a pretty big trend! The colder weather has probably been the biggest influence behind that, but I’m very much into it right now. There’s not really one I can think of that I HATE right now.
The most important piece of an outfit is ____? Why?
I’d maybe say SHOES. Shoes can really make or break a dope Fit.
Do you have a dream fashion piece? (a specific coat, belt, pants etc.)
I think a really high fashion, tailored suit would be a dream, but other than that, maybe a SUPREME logo box hoodie or tee.
What are your goals and aspirations with fashion? Where do you see yourself ending up?
My goal right now is just to continue to inspire others from my style, with their fashion choices. I love having people come up to me for advice on what they should wear, or if they’re looking for a good pair of jeans or shoes. I’m always here to lend fashion advice to anyone.
Down the line, I’d love to have a clothing collab with a dope streetwear company. Having my own line, with dope essential, everyday pieces would totally be my thing!
