The first major moment when I remember music having such a profound, overwhelming effect on me was when I was 14 and I saw the Indigo Girls with Michelle Malone and Joan Baez, and they were doing “Wild Horses” by the Stones. I felt like I had grown-up in about five seconds. I totally had a moment where I flash-forwarded my whole life, and I knew I could never give up on music. Completely devoid of any religious or iconic context, I felt like music was handed down to me— this is what I was going to do.

Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment

If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.
