She just had a feeling about her outfit today; A calm, and comfortable mood inspired Katie Lau’s look. She appeared just as relaxed and intriguing to me whilst waiting outside the 79 Montgomery Street building. Naturally, I turned to talk to her:
Faye Harris: Hi Katie, What are you studying?
Katie Lau: Fashion textile design
FH: How would you describe your style?
KL: Quite simple. Smart yet comfortable, I like very natural tones.
FH: What’s your favorite accessory?
KL: My Marc Jacobs watch. I love the pop of color, but I don’t wear a lot of accessories.
FH: Where do you shop in San Francisco?
KL: Mainly Westfield, Nordstrom in particular. There is a lot of designers to choose from.
FH: Do you have a favorite designer?
KL: Dries Van Noten
FH: Who is your favorite instructor?
KL: Elizabeth Armstrong, she’s a great teacher.
FH: Are you inspired by other students’ style?
