Hey Tate, how are you doing today?
I’m good! Been travelling & busy!
How did the collaboration come about?
I think it was a very natural collaboration. I have always worn Vitaly pieces and constantly wanted to wear their jewelry – as I felt like it really resonated with me as an artist. Once they reached out to design a piece of jewellery – I got so excited and inspired.
Do you have any pieces of jewellery you wear every day?
I have so many Vitaly pieces. I am a huge fan of chunky/different-looking jewellery, and that’s why I have so many of their pieces. I have this huge chunky silver chain, and I wear it for a lot of performances and shoots.
How do you channel your creativity in different ways?
Dance/singing/writing has always been my creative outlet, but designing has always been something I’ve been interested in. clothing, jewellery and fashion are something I am becoming super passionate about as I’m getting older.
Do you think the move towards genderless jewellery and androgyny reflects wider societal opinions?
Yes for sure. I have always worn a lot of genderless and androgynous clothes/jewellery – so it makes sense that I am a fan. I believe fashion should never be only for one gender or type of person. Wearing pieces that are against the norm is what is changing fashion for the better, in my opinion.
How does your music affect your style?
My music is pop with a touch of grunge/grit to it. I feel like that’s how my style can be — Girly with always a touch of tomboy.
