KiK: Tell us about yourself

Georgina: My name is Georgina and I am a soon-to-be graduate of the University of the West Indies. I am an introvert who has had a lifelong obsession with fashion, food, sleep and books. As an emerging fashion designer and stylist, I have become strong believer in doing what you love to the best of your abilities instead of trying to fit into society’s mold of what is acceptable.

KiK:  Describe your fashion style and does your fabulous hair play a part in your personal style?

Georgina: I am casual, bohemian, vintage, edgy, clean, and sophisticated, so in one word my style is very eclectic. Of course, my hair plays an intricate part in my personal style as it becomes a form of expression and changes as my mood changes from tomboy to bohemian to sultry or classy.

KiK:  What are your 3 favourite items of clothing?

Georgina: Hmmm, that’s really hard. But since I am absolutely obsessed with layering I will have to say an amazing blazer/jacket/kimono, a basic t-shirt or tank top and a well fitted pair of shorts or pants.

KiK:  Name your favourite places to shop?

As I do love a great bargain I will go to various stores in Downtown Kingston, I also love thrifting so Salvation Army is a great place to pick out really unique pieces, for overseas shopping I love Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Shasa, and H&M. But I have to say the fabric store is my most favourite place to shop as it allows me the freedom to design and create whatever my heart desires.

KiK:  What is your favourite hairstyle and how do you maintain your hair?

Georgina: My favourite hairstyle would have to be a twist-out. I am in between routines right now but there are a few things that remain consistent. Since I work out a few times a week which causes me to sweat on my scalp I need to co-wash and moisturise at least twice per week, I deep condition at least once per week, and cleanse with shampoo once per month. So for now I will wear a wash and go, mini braids or canerows (cornrows) that can be worn underneath my wigs.

KiK:  How do you wear your hair and what are your 3 favourite hair products?

Georgina: I am very eclectic in my hairstyles and I will wear jumbo braids, marley twists, twist-outs, wigs, puffs, crochet braids, and updos. My 3 favourite hair products would have to be Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque (which replaced Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment), Ettenio’s Macadamia Hair Butter, Lottabody Moisturize Me Curl and Style Milk.

KiK:  How do you select what you are going to wear each day? What is your process?

Georgina: Usually the night before I will select a specific item of clothing item that reflects how I am feeling or what I have been inspired by, and then that morning I will create an outfit around that piece. And at other times my mood will change in the morning, which will change the outfit in its entirety.
