The following feature appears in the August 2016 issue of NYLON.

My fondest denim memories come from my teenage years during the ’90s. For my 17th birthday I begged my parents to buy me a Levi’s trucker jacket. To this day I still wear that jacket and love it the older it gets—it’s battered but in surprisingly good condition considering it’s been around the world with me. It’s like my safety jacket. 

I don’t consciously save all of my denim, but I’m quite nostalgic about my clothing. (I’ll admit to having a big memory box of denim styles I don’t wear but keep for sentimental reasons.) I’ve been working in the fashion industry for 14 years and denim is something I wear 90 percent of the time. I spend my day-to-day researching and analyzing ever-changing fashion trends, but denim has become my go-to, my constant.
