Fashion is a very important aspect of our identities. The way we lresent ourselves to the world says a lot about our character and our persobalities. StreetChic.ca is a new fashion blog website dedicated to showcasing styles from across Canada. Written for the people by the people, Street Chic offers a unique insight into some of the fashions being worn by Canadians. I had the honour of writing an article for Street Chic showcasing some of the things that teens in my area were wearing. (Link: COMING SOON!) Here, I am offering some bonus content for the post I made on StreetChic.ca. I’m posting 2 extra interviews in addition to the 4 I posted over there so make sure you check that out too! Enjoy!!

At 13 years old, Imani is just finding her style. She’s begining to put together outfit’s that reflect her artistic personality. Imami designs and sells t-shirts online and likes to makr her own things and wear old clothes and make them stylish. “Fashion is a method of self expression and it can be related to a group or a culture or just be lots of fun!” – Imani

Haydee, 19

“Fashion has meant absolutely everything to me for as long as I can remember. Even as a toddler I was wrapping shoelaces around my feet in different designs to represent shoes. I never let my mom dress me because I wanted to pick out my own clothes. When I was 8 years old I was aware of trends and how to make them my own based on what I had. In the past few years I’ve realized that fashion is something that I want to pursue as a career. I want to help people express themselves and feel comfortable and confident with themselves externally, so then they can better themselves internally. Personally, fashion has always been a way for me to show people who I am without using words, and when I feel like I’m being visually represented, I feel incredibly content in who I am. That’s why I think fashion is so important. It’s this huge cultural part of human nature and it can entirely affect how you feel about yourself and others, and has no boundaries.” – Haydee
