When did you start taking interest in fashion?
Jordan: I always had an interest in fashion but once I was able to go out and buy my own clothes it was a whole new game. This was around when I was 13

Do you agree with the famous quote by Yves Saint Laurent, "Fashion fades styles eternal"? Why or why not?
Jordan: Yea I do. A lot of people don't realize that it's not the clothes you wear but how you wear them. Just because you have on a $5000 outfit of whats new in season doesn't mean you have style. Having style to me means a mixture of old, new, and expensive while incorporating your personality.

Who is your favorite designer or brand? Why?
Jordan: It's hard for me to really just say one designer is my favorite. Here are my top two that

Maison Martin Margiela: his style of deconstructionism is what really appeals to me. All of his designs are reincarnated products that were once trash to someone but given a new life.

Kosuke Tsumura: He started a brand in 1994 by the name of Final Home, which is no longer around, with Issey Miyake as his backer. The entire aesthetic of the brand was Post Apocalyptic wear. Every garment was designed as if it were your final home. He became known for doing oversized jackets with multiple large pokets to store anything to help with your survival if the world were to come to an end.

What is your favorite fashion quote?
Jordan: Fashion can be bought style you must posses.

What is one thing about your style that no one knows?
Jordan: I hate to match my socks with anything I wear
