NO: What excites you about fashion?

NO: What’s your favorite fall or winter street look?
FIKIR: My favorite street look is like wearing baggy pants with a shirt with a sneaker. Teyana Taylor can be a good example for a street look just wearing oversized outfits. My favorite fall or winter look is wearing big puff coats and high knee heel boots. Also like turtle neck sweaters and sweater dresses with coats. Karl Lagerfeld’s work and style has always inspired me.

FIKIR: Adventurous, Goofy, Outgoing, Caring, Fun, and Ambitious.
NO: What advise would you give a young girl struggling with self-esteem?
FIKIR: I feel like having low self-esteem comes from people talking and judging that person so NEVER listen to what anybody has say about your look. Everyone was created different and beautiful in their own way. Always uplift yourself and try not to compare yourself to another. Give yourself credit and be positive.
