I had the pleasure of interviewing the pastel haired Vintage lover Audrey Kitching. If you have never heard of Audrey before, she is a model, blogger, stylist and fashion designer. Her style resembles Harajuku girl meets grungey thrift fiend. I have always been a big fan of Audrey since she began in her Myspace days, even now I am constantly on her Buzznet page and Instagram. I also featured her on my ‘Weekly Inspiration’ post. Her style has evolved rapidly and can be seen most recently in Italian Vogue!
Audrey’s style is one that can be envied and is hard to copy. She mixes modern with Vintage and is always experimenting with her hair which can be a mix of rainbow colours one week to light pink the next. She has interviewed major celebrities and has been featured in popular magazines such a Nylon and In Style.
Audrey is the queen of Social Media, she often updates her blog on Buzznet where she can be seen modelling designer outfits or simply chilling out at home with her cute cat, Waffle. She always keeps her fans up to date with all her goings on and even finds the time to reply to them on Twitter.
Coco De Coeur is Audrey’s fashion brand. With its interverted cross slouchy jumpers and cat print T-Shirts its in a league of its own. It oozes Japanese Street style and has been worn by many celebs. Audrey has also been featured in many Japanese editorials and I can definitely see why they would love her!
I am so happy that I got to interview Audrey, even with her insanely busy schedule she took the time to answer my questions! In this interview she describes her style gives an insight into her love of all things Vintage! Amour!
