"Personal style is an extension of our being. It's another way to understand and articulate who we are in the world." 
-Nadine Farag of One Who Dresses


ONE WHO DRESSES


Throughout this episode, Nadine explores her transition from thinking about sustainability to the art of dressing when it comes to understanding our fashion sense. She also walks us through some of the discoveries she has made about personal style along the way. For Nadine, she believes we're all on this journey of trying to understand who we are and to articulate that to the world around us, and personal style is an extension of who we are, which allows us to enhance that.

Kestrel and Nadine also talk about the way they both used to be "pink haters" and have now become "pink lovers". Kestrel asks Nadine for her thoughts on what draws us to different colors at different points in our lives - is it marketing, exposure, something else? The two discuss different ideas on what inspires those evolving attractions.
