We met with Tamira to talk about her visits to our markets.
What brings you here to the market edition of De KLOFFIE Markt today?
Tamira: Well, I love vintage and I like to collect items. I like to meet new people and the market is a really good place to do that, so that’s why I come to every edition.
You said you come to every edition. How do you like this edition?
Tamira: I really like it because it’s sunny outside, so you wouldn’t think that people would be here. But it’s actually pretty crowded, so that’s really nice. A lot of nice sellers, people I didn’t see last edition, that are selling items now. So it’s also nice to see new people here.
What have you seen today that you really like or that you bought for example?
Tamira: I bought a nice Burberry linen shirt. It’s really cute. It looks really nice, so I am really happy with the purchase. And it’s going to have a nice home in my closet.
“I try to find pieces that speak to me and the ones that I think I can use on a daily basis and really incorporate them in my style more, instead of keeping them in the closet.”
Great! Is that a piece that you’ve been looking for? Or is Burberry a brand that you’ve been trying to buy?
Tamira: I have a couple of brands right now like Prada, which I also found here at the last edition of DKM. So I try to find pieces that speak to me and the ones that I think I can use on a daily basis and really incorporate them in my style more, instead of keeping them in the closet. So yeah this is going to be part of that collection as well.
What about that Prada bag you said you got that last edition?
Tamira: Oh the Prada jacket! Yes I’ve worn that I think one or two times already and I got a lot of compliments. So I am really happy about that. It’s a really nice piece, especially over time, it’s a timeless piece, so you can wear it whenever whatever occasion. It will always fit.
How do you normally shop? Do you normally buy vintage and second-hand?
Tamira: Yes! I am an advocate for slow fashion. I really like to recycle. I am a vegan as well, so in my food and my lifestyle I also like to keep everything environmentally friendly and bring more awareness into my style. I am like even if you are not an aware person of things you don’t have to be boring, you can still rock really cool items for less.
You’re looking really good today. You want to walk us through your outfit? Let us know where you bought some of the stuff.
Tamira: Thank you. Well these track pants I bought new because it was an exclusive edition with Adidas in collaboration with Ji Won Choi.
