My Style Idol

Johanna Blakley, who happens to not be a designer or model, is my style idol. Her idea of taking beautiful designs from the past and making them timeless, and borrowing ideas from one another to advance fashion really inspires me. She changed my mind about replicas, "stealing", and what it really means to be trendy. I think the lolita style in particular has been shaped so much by taking trends from other fashion subcultures or historical fashion, that it's sad that lolitas condemn supposed idea theft when I think that thievery has made the style what it is.
