What was the thing that you were crazy passionate about, that you would be lined up for hours?
I used to look back at pictures and cringe but actually I’m quite proud that I’ve had fun with fashion and don’t always look perfect. The only regret I have is when I look at something I wore when I was very young and it obviously looks like it belonged to someone else.
I like clothes and fashion. It’s a hobby for me and I really enjoy being part of it, so it’s nice when people say: ‘He can dress quite well.’
My mother was a slave. So was I. Bought and sold. Scourged and branded until the Lord of Light reached down, took me in his hand, and raised me up.
