Where were you born? Sacramento, CA
Where do you live? Sacramento, CA via everywhere.
When did you decide that this is what you want to do? When I was in my 3rd year in college, I met a student that wanted to go into a company together and we just kept having meetings, but there was never any progress. I decide to take matters into my own hands. I produced my very first fashion show, June of 2004 and the rest is history.
Are there any celebrities that you’ve worked with? Not yet…but the year is still young . =)
Which Celebrities fit your style, and that you would want to work with? I would love to see people like Kelis, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Tracee Ellis Ross, Joy Bryant, Jean Grae,Keri Hilson,Electrik Red and Kid Sister in some Faedrah Clothing…I have a bigger list but that’s a few names that’s on my list.
Which celebrity could put on anything and look good? (male or female) I think Pharell can put on anything and make it look good…he can wear some sweatpants and a plain white tee and still look like a million bucks!!
Do you have a favorite color or fabric that you like to work with? And why? I am a color fanatic…every color of the rainbow is my favorite color. My favorite fabric is jersey material…I just like how it hugs and fits on the body. Especially if you have curves, it definitely brings it out.
What helps you get creative (music, people, movies)? I love going to different places and people watching…just checking out their style and peeping what’s stylish on the streets. I listen to a various number of artists and all genres of music. Music motivates me and gets my creative juices flowing. I have 3 movies I always turn to for inspiration whenever I get into a “creative stump”. My 3 “old faithfuls” are Party Girl (w/Parker Posey), Beat Street (Rae Dawn Chong cold rockin’ it) and last but not least The Wiz (the Emerald City scene with all the color changes and all the dancers is Halston-enough said!!)
Any projects coming up that we should know about? I am co-styling with an accessory company based out in Oakland for their commercial this month (hopefully it goes well), I have a few shows lined up in California for the next few months. I’m also a stylist so I have photo shoots lined up. I’m working on getting my clothing in store locations in Atlanta, New York, and San Francisco to name a few. Be on the lookout for www.faedrah916.com to launch this summer.
