@Jordanalexis_ is So Chic
1. What made you pursue a career in fashion?
I’ve always held a job in retail. I’ve done every job from being a cashier, visual display artist, and managing so I was always around clothing. I knew when I graduated high school that I wanted to go to school for something creative and I wanted to make money. Initially, I went to The Art Institute of York PA with intent to become a buyer and after my first accounting class, I knew buying wasn’t for me lol. During my first year of school, styling was a new profession on the rise, it was exclusive to wealthy people and celebrities. But with the growth of technology and networking in school, I met stylists in the industry and that was where I fell in love with styling and decided I wanted to pursue it.
2. What makes your style unique?
My style is unique because it’s a bit off-putting, in the best way of course. I always find a way to be comfortable and fly. That’s what I live by. I don’t really pay attention to dress codes. I live by my internal dress code, which is whatever I feel best in the best that day. So it could be thigh high boots and an oversized sweater or vans and cargo pants. Just depend’s lol.
3. What is a fashion tip you live by?
Always be comfortable and fuck a dress code.
4. What is your favorite “go-to” outfit? product?
Always Van’s, Converses and a slick jumpsuit. I’m a sucker for a well-tailored jumpsuit.
5. How do you stay motivated?
Being motivated is a day by day initiative. Some days I feel invincible and can take on anything and others day I feel lost and confused. It’s life, it’s a journey, but overall I’m thankful and enjoying my journey.
6. What is your key to success?
Keep a good rapport with people you work with, be early and ALWAYS do your best.
7. What is something that you know now, that you wish you knew a few years back?
No one or nothing determines your value. You determine how much your worth.
8. What can we expect from you within the next couple of years?
Within the next few years, I see myself as a well-known and creative style consultant, having a nice resume of music videos, costume design for movies and TV shows, and product marketing for my favorite brands under my belt.
