Here are a few excerpt from a recent Awaken Magazine interview with ABS Petit,
My career right now is currently stepping on to a new level. Its moving on to the next phase. I’m crossing into an unfamiliar place, but I’m happy for it. I’m in New York prepping for this next chapter and I’m eager to show the world, after I’ve completed this journey in the big city. The path I took as a stylist began with being IN FRONT of the camera as a model, then took the connections I made from that, to catapult my aspirations as a stylist.
The biggest thing I’ve learned while styling is the trick of optical illusions. Fashion is art, it needs to look appealing to the primary sense of sight. Too much can be tragic. I’ve learned that if a woman is top-heavy with little to no bottom, you wouldn’t want to give her a loud top with obnoxious prints. You’d either want to darken or solidify her bust and torso, and draw attention to her bottom, with an eye-catching print to give her a nice proportioned look.
I am inspired by people and culture. Culture gives texture, and texture gives a rich feel to any look. I am far from a minimalist, but if i do choose to go minimal, its intercepted by chunky neckwear or bracelet. Due to my Haitian culture, I’ve learned to appreciate African undertones in designer labels as well as the rich bold colors that come with it.
My ultimate goal is to be head of a creative team in a fashion house. I’ve been thinking of maybe becoming a fashion editor for a publication as my next move, but who knows? I am a freaking Gemini, i might just leave all together and pursue a career in acting.
