We had the good fortune of connecting with Lashawn Ruan-Hodge and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lashawn, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
The role of taking risk has shown me alot throughout my career because taking this risk has brought me thus far with styling. If i did not take this risk i would not have known my true skills and talent. This also opened my mind to learn new things and build confidence during my journey.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Hi my name is Lashawn Ruan-Hodge I am 23years of age. I am a very fun, outgoing and friendly person.
I reside in the beautiful island of Anguilla Bwi
I have always had a passion for fashion. I actually got my fashion sense from my dad. From mixing and matching pieces & colours together.
I have started styling in May 2017.
I would describe my personal style as Colourful, Vibrant & classical . I have always loved mixing different bright coloures together to create a human canvas which is me.
What i mostly enjoy about this journey is dealing with different persons sense of fashion and the ending results of the overall outfit when it is done created. Also seeing that the client is happy with the end product throughout the process.
I would describe my brand as Vibrant, Sexy & Cool . I started this brand because i wanted people to feel confident in their skin and also try different ideas when it comes to fashion.
Throughout my journey I’ve learned alot about setting creative boundaries, utilizing limited resources and developing visions into reality Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give a shoutout to Jonathan Gumbs, Instagram @j.austinpro who is a lifestyle and fashion photographer. He encouraged me to start my journey by branding through instagram to showcase my talent
