Fashion Today: Where do you shop by the way? Do you thrift?
Jus Kaysha: The kinda fits I love, I get them from hiistyle…yes I do thrift but not always…some of the clothes I get then turn them into something else like most of my dresses. Here’s an example of a fit I designed:
FT: Wow…you design too?
JK: That was actually a dress that I cut into a dress and a top. I don’t know if that’s what I’d call it but yeah…I’d worn it many times so I changed it to that 😂
FT: Wow… It looks like someone who is experienced designed it…like went to fashion school…
JK: Noo but fashion is something I’ll do later on…I dream of having a fashion house. But I do watch a few fashion hacks when bored or in my leisure time.
FT: If you were to go for an international luxury brand for your wedding gown, which one would you choose?
JK: About the international luxury brand for a wedding gown I wouldn’t know but Kim Kardashian being my fashion idol, having totally loved her wedding gown, I would go to that brand; Givenchy.
FT: What do you consider stylish in a man?
JK: Mmmh stylish man…For me, a stylish man is a clean man. What I mean by this is a man who’s well organized. You can tell if a man is organized by how he dresses. He doesn’t need to have those luxurious things like designer clothes but by how he carries himself. A nice haircut, clean shoes, nice scent maybe…and how he also keeps his staff.
FT: What’s your favorite kinda sunglasses to wear?
JK: I love big sunglasses that I can wear at the beach. I find them sexy.
FT: What is that essential thing you never leave the house without?
JK: There are several. Sunglasses, lip gloss, and lipstick. But, if I were to choose one it would be either lip gloss or lipstick.
FT: Finally, why do you want to be a fashion house owner?
JK: My reason for wanting to be a fashion house owner is I’ll get to create outfits that I like. I love redesigning outfits too. I’ll definitely meet big fashion people too that I’ll for sure learn from. Plus I just love fashion, you know, looking nice and classy. I would also be happy to see people getting outfits from me because they love them. It will be a dream come true.
