LAURA JAMES, 26, MODEL

“My mom absolutely influenced my style. My favorite pictures of her are the ones from the ’70s €”the crazy bell-bottoms and suede dresses and huge sunglasses.”

SHEMA HOTAKY, 22, PSYCHOLOGY STUDENT, YORK COLLEGE, CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK

“I started wearing my head scarf when I was 12 years old. I don’t feel like it limits me €”it’s a big part of who I am. I wouldn’t change it for anything.”

LAMEKA FOX, 17, MODEL

“I love experimenting. I love Anna Dello Russo and Isabella Blow. I saw these Miu Miu boots and was like, ‘Those are to die for!'”

FARHIYA SHIRE, 19, MODEL

“My parents are Somali immigrants living in Holland. In high school, I’d watch  Gossip Girl;my style icon was Serena. I’d see New York, the characters walking down Fifth Avenue wearing brands you could only get in America. I always said, ‘I’m so going to go there. I just don’t know when.'”

“I thrift a lot and am really inspired by individual pieces, a new pattern, a new color, or whatever it is €”and maybe that comes a little bit from the eccentric characters [where I grew up] on the Lower East Side.”

KA YOUNG JEONG, 21, FASHION DESIGN STUDENT, RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN

 

“I’ve lived in Dubai, Bangkok, Vienna, Bucharest, and Frankfurt. But people go off of appearance and say, ‘Oh, she’s Asian.’ I count myself as an example that you never know the whole story behind a person.”

JUDE LIANA, 22, STREET STYLE PHOTOGRAPHER

“My style depends on my mood. One day I’ll wake up and feel like wearing boyfriend jeans and an XL T-shirt with Docs, and another I’ll put on some red lipstick and florals.”

VERONIKA VILIM, 21, MODEL

“My parents are Buddhist, and I find a lot of things from Nepal and India to be aesthetically pleasing. I also love punk and rock ‘n’ roll from the ’70s and ’80s: Sex Pistols, the Runaways, David Bowie. My style is a mixture of those things.”

SAHARA LIN LEUNG, 18, MODEL

“I’m a little bit rebellious. If I want to do something, I’m going to do it. Like, even if it’s something crazy. Because I don’t want to have a life just sitting behind a desk.”
