I’m Christopher Mannor, your new Style Contributor in the form of a Young Stylist/Budding Rapper. In a true moment of Yeezus prophesized realization, I give to you for my first contribution, a photoshoot + Q&A with my good fashion friend/client Angela Simmons.

Check out what Run’s daughter, Russel’s niece, and everyone’s favorite Fashion Week frequenting socialite/ philanthropist/ entrepreneur has to say about inspiration, fashion meeting music, and selecting new designers to feature on her flourishing e-commerce site

Plus, we have some pretty smoking hot photos to compliment.

CS: What does fashion mean to you?
AS: Fashion is everything to me! I like to incorporate fashion in everything that I do! Fashion is always evolving and it always allow me to be creative.
CS: How do you pick a designer to feature on your site
AS: I hand pick designers based on the designs and creativity! We love supporting new and upcoming designers! 
CS: What inspires you?
AS: Traveling inspires me! I am very inspired by art and different artists! 
CS: You come from a legendary family of successful people in music and fashion, how do you think music and fashion work together to impact the culture?
AS: I think Music and Fashion go hand in hand! I believe music is inspired by fashion and fashion inspired by music! They both inspire one another!
CS: What’s your advice for young guys and girls who are interested in getting into the fashion industry?
AS: My advice for anyone interested in getting into fashion industry, is to take internship opportunities, study your field, don’t give up and do what you love, love what you do!
