POST SHOOT INTERVIEW WITH MODEL/ARTIST LILLIYA SCARLETT
Kika Reinhardt: What led you to pursue a career in modeling?
Lilliya Scarlett: I was discovered wandering around Whole Foods with my mom when I was 13.
Kika: Ultimate fashion inspiration?
Lilliya: Probably a cross between Mick Jagger and Brigitte Bardot with a little Jem and the Holograms mixed in!!
Kika: Favorite fashion brands?
Lilliya: Most of the clothes I wear are vintage. I like Opening Ceremony, Saint Laurent, and Dior. I find random items online. I've been painting on a lot of vintage leather and wearing it. I love wearing girly dresses over fishnet and mesh tops. I've been buying lingerie from a store called Pretties in Venice. Everything is so delicate and beautiful!
Kika: In terms of music, who are your top artists of the moment?
Lilliya Scarlett: I've been listening to a lot of Dusty Springfield, The Germs, The Pixies. I'm obsessed with the songs "Wherewithal" by Clifford T Ward, and "Canned Oxygen" by The Halo Benders.
Whats your damage?
Something that's made me the person I am today is probably the fact that I've always been an insanely unorganized person. Messy as hell. I embrace my personal chaos and mud pie existence in the art I create.
