Interview with Jules:
I conducted my first interview for my article about artists and expressing their creative identity through style. Jules was great to talk to, she's an illustration major and has drawn out her outfits before she's worn them. Her looks match her artwork and she even "tests" or "prototypes" new looks using sketching. She attended a high school that required uniforms which is when she began finding new ways to express herself; from her shoes to her hair and makeup. Her expression has only grown since high school and now she can incorporate her choice of clothes for the day. She said that she generally dresses in two different ways- bright and colorful or edgy. The type of people who interact with her varies depending on the way she's dressed. She said when she dresses edgier she attracts more conversation from other creative types, but less conversation with strangers. On the contrary, when she dresses bright and colorful she seems more welcoming of conversation with strangers. You can tell what mood Jules is in based on her style for the day, like a mood ring.
