Black Girl Killing It - Interview #23 - Max Benji

How would you define your personal style? 

I never labeled it but if i have too say very chic and glamorous.

Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?

I most definitely play by my own rules .. trends are very dangerous lol  

Are there any colors you tend to shy away from, and if so why?

I stay away from bright colors because i feel like my skin tone doesn’t fit well with bright colors.

When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?

I think of a young trendy African American Girl setting her trend and on her grind.  

Do you accept anyone’s critique or are you confident in your style choices?

Sometimes i accept it but most of the time I’m confident.  

As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?

The whole fashion sense started when I was 13.

Do you participate in your local fashion scene?

Not very often it depends. 

What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?

When people don’t color coordinate correctly. 

What is your favourite trend right now?

Honestly, I don’t keep up with trends  

Have you ever tried your hand at design or sewing?

Yes ! .. I design mostly all of my stuff
