Can you describe your style?
M: Usually I like to dress kind of minimalistic. Altough lately I have been looking for extravagant, vintage stuff. Also I look for clothes that have been addressed specifically to women, in a more queer way. I feel like now the standards have shifted.
I like this fluffy vintage Fila jacket. Usually, when I had to be warm, I just had this ugly sporty jacket, not even cool sporty. And then I found this one in a vintage store.
Can you tell what is your relation with fashion?
M: Fashion for me is like a hobby.
Do you use fashion to express yourself?
M: I think certain clothes can make a statement. It is not even just about myself. Even with other people, when I meet someone, I always look for people that are trying to express certain things or messages, when they are dressing up.
Why are you at De Kloffie Markt?
M: Because I think it is a good opportunity to find things that usually you would not find at any other place. You could find them, but they would be really expensive. I also think it saves some time. I could spend a lot of hours on the Internet just trying to look for certain stuff, but here at De KLOFFIE Markt it is all together. You can come to see it and try it on.
I actually bought three things on the market, like things that I been specifically looking for, but it is also like a coincidence. I definitely like to be open to any inspiration. Also I like to see who comes here and how they dress as well.
