A word from Sum Style founder and personal stylist
" Fashion is the one of the most important factors that creates one’s first impression of you. Fashion is a deep, meaningful, and powerful form of art to me and I believe we are very blessed to have the ability to project our personalities with the garments we wear. To me, fashion is loud. It is a form of self-representation, attitude, and with clothes we seek for respect in a silent yet bold way. Everyday when I dress myself, I feel powerful and empowered. I feel lucky to have the freedom to dress and express myself in limitless colors, fabrications, and styles. What I wear for the day sets my mood and how I style and dress myself sets a silent demand for the respect and way I want to be perceived by others.
