Hey everyone! I really would love for you all to meet Priscilla!
She is the beautiful face behind her fashion line, Crowned Bird!
She will be on the coming season of NBC's Design Star!
Here is a little interview with Priscilla so you can get to know he better before you root for her to win!
1. How did you get started in fashion design?
Got a scholarship to FIDM while attending Art Institute of San Francisco. I started out wanting to explore industrial design -all I really wanted to do was make doorknobs or our necessary everyday items colorful, interesting and fun.
Inspiration for spring came quickly. I cam across a lot of watercolor hand-dyed batik cotton from Thailand and knew right away I wanted to run in that direction of faded bleeds and vintage playgrounds. I thought of the simplicity of watercolors, polka dots, and plaids as a kid and how happy that made me. Everything is a trip down memory lane with me. It always comes from a place of novelty.
3. Who is your biggest fashion icon and why?
I like to say if Zooey Deschanel and Audrey Hepburn had a style child it would be me. Audrey is many people's classic go-to because she represents the way a modern woman wants to be perceived -well put together and embracing of female innocence. Although it is unlikely we revert back to those 1950s trends entirely, it is very likely that men and women become a bit more dandy in the future.
High waisted everything.
5. Being a designer, and obviously fashionable, at the end of your day what do you wear to sleep?
This is great. A moment of truth. I am actually really bad about falling alseep in my clothes. Need to work on that going forward...but if I had a concious choice it would be a silk vintage slip or American Apparel bloomers to bed.
It evolved from my grandmother's embroidery, into a sketch, out of a symbol, that lead into a name. But in short, the meaning is to "Be the Queen of Your Own Universe and Fly Free Amongst the Stars".
7. What are you most looking forward to being on the new season of NBC's Fashion Star?
I am really looking forward to working with Nicole Richie and discovering the other talents on the show. My story is a powerful one and I really want to share my style and lighthearted approach to fashion with the world. Fashion Star is being shown in over 170 countries this year so it's overwhelming to think about having an impact on so many people. But I love it. Excited for it all!
It's a toss up between red lipstick and sunglasses. Tough choice.
Thank you, Priscilla and good luck on the show!
