DWAYNE ON FASHION...
How do you define your personal style?
I love clothing. It’s a huge inspiration in my interior design. Personally, Tom Ford and Armani to classic men’s haberdashery.
How does your passion for design manifest in your personal style?
I love putting together various “looks” for different occasions and events… I will sometimes experiment with a color combination in a wardrobe before trying it in an interior.
How has your personal style evolved over the years?
My style hasn’t really changed that much just the quality and attention to detail (fit, drape, stitching) has become much more sophisticated.
You see a fabulously dressed person across the room at a party that stops you in your tracks. What are they wearing that catches your eye?
I’m always drawn to the perfect simple cut or the perfect blend of texture and scale.
When you are vacationing, do you pack outfits or mix and match separates?
I usually pack outfits. Sometimes I will pack “options” of separates but typically plan out the “perfect” outfit, so I just simply grab and go while on vacation without having to think about putting something together.
What is your favorite fashion brand?
Armani. Dior and Givenchy are runner’s up for women’s fashion inspiration. Vintage really inspires me the most… also Carolina Herrera is having a moment presently… and always Halston’s clean lines.
