Sabrina Diaz
"I tend to always wear baby doll dresses and dress like a five-year-old. My friends always tell me I look like a doll, like I'm going to kindergarten." Sabrina Diaz

Always in a dress, Sabrina may look girly, but she has a very educated and sophisticated taste for clothes, and I love how she is okay with looking like she cares. Her biggest role models are glamourous: her mom, whom she vividly remembers watching getting dressed as a child, Audrey Hepburn, especially in the movie of her own namesake ("I like to pretend it's about me sometimes"), and the iconic Edith Head,, "not only as a costume designer but for her own strong personal style" (I am super impressed that she knows who Edith Head is). Sabrina's clothes are literally of her dreams and memories, like the leopard coat that her mother gave her after years of coveting it, the beaded robe she wears out at night and enthusiastically fantasizes was the dressing gown of a turn-of-the-twentieth-century Russian lady, and the coat she still has from when she was six (it is still amazing on her). One of her pastimes is eBay (not tv) and so into the archetypes is she that by searching for all things lace, she ended up with the white Victorian dress that she cut and wears with her signature black thick tights. Sabrina's attachment to clothes is so soulful that she is habitually two hours late due to getting it just right. And I would imagine she does so all with her favorite movie scene in mind, when "Audrey Hepburn shows up to this party in this breathtaking white gown, and everyones' jaws drop, and they all freeze because of how beautiful she looks in this gown. I love it."

    I have to say her amazing style and love for clothing she def. got it from her mom. I worked with her mom for many years, and she actually took me shopping once, and it was an amazing experience. She learned from the best. She has developed her own style, using her fashion knowledge, unique style and her traveling experience. Good luck sabrina, I hope to see you one day on the NYFW.
