Through our initial interview, Alyza told me the tale of their fashion transformation: from young child dressed by mom in a “fun 80’s style” (which they would totally still wear today), to mandatory high school uniform with free dress days they would take hard core advantage of (and get in trouble for!), to college student in Boston, dressing functionally during the weather but with a costume trunk back at the dorm for any and all occasions otherwise, to today! Alyza loves bright colors, goofy cartoon graphics, childish 80s style, mixed patterns, big faces, loud, sporty—can you tell?
