Hi Jade, Please introduce your wonderful self.
—Hi! My name is Jade I’m currently based in NYC, but originally from Brussels, Belgium. I’m a DJ with the wonderful all-female agency Les Filles, as well as a producer and singer.
How would you describe your style in 3 words?
— slightly risqué
(Although I did ask my best friend and her answer was: classy fairy rat… do with that what you will)
Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?
— Honestly, a good chunk of my wardrobe is from my mother’s closet, so I will have to say that she is one of my biggest style inspirations! She has so many little designer gems from the 90s and early 2000s - I love repurposing them - often taking them in, playing with their length,… - and
incorporating them into my own style.
What does personal style mean to you?
— To me, personal style is just another way to express your personality, your mood, even an energy or a goal. It’s how you present yourself to the world, or sometimes more importantly to yourself.
What's on your thrift list right now?
— Always underwear. Always a pair of baggy but kind of sexy jeans everyone seems to have but me.
Who would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?
— my best friends
— Jia from Single’s Inferno (iykyk)
What's something you're really proud of right now?
— I am proud of having gotten rid of a lot of the anxiety I used to carry over not knowing what the future holds. One step at a time will take you exactly where you need to go. But anxiety will keep you stuck in place.
Where else can we find you?
