I’ve done posts on celebrities, international fashionistas and bloggers, whose style I obsess over. This time, my fashion-crush is a little closer to home and I actually know her personally! I just wanted to share, with you all, why it is that I am so in-style-love with Farren Arendse.
Farren (22) is Mother City born and bred, but is currently living in New York to fulfill her one and only dream of becoming a successful fashion designer. “Ever since I was a little girl, going into every shop possible and playing dress up as a little kid,” says the fashionista as she explains that she has had a calling in fashion. Farren is currently working on her clothing line called “Rad Dolls” which is aimed at the free spirited, yet trend conscious individual. As a quirky dresser herself, the young talent encourages weird and different dress sense. She is a firm believer in not being a fashion sheep.
When asked how American fashion differs to South African fashion she responded, “Over here, people are more free as to what they wear. Basically, no one looks down on anyone for what they are wearing. The clothing is also much more trend forward, I’d say.” Her current surroundings have definitely allowed her personal style to blossom and this can be can seen on Facebook page: Blommy. She is active on her page and is always posting her latest fashion forward looks, as well as personal fashion interests.
Her favourite items of style, are her rainbow knit jersey and Egyptian gold necklace (see below). It is obvious to see why Farren is indeed an ATG fashion-crush!
We wish Farren well, for the rest of her stay in New York and hope that we’ll see her creations rocking the runway soon!
