7. What is the most transformative conversation you have ever had on the subject of fashion or style?

Never had one.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a “transformative” conversation about style. I enjoy conversing with friends, family, acquaintances, and co-workers about clothing, but none of these conversations has ever led me to reevaluate my own style.

probably the idea of transgender people dressing how they want to dress.

I talk fashion or style so rarely... so i just don't know if there is any...

Me and my best friend who also studied fashion, are known to talk about fashion and style ALOT. We talk about designers, street style, clothes, shops, our outfits and everything between. But our most intresting topics has been organic/ ecological/ ethical fashion. Why people refuse pay for more than 5€ for a t-shirt? Why people don't understand quality? How come some people don't know real leather from fake? How come people don't know how to take care of clothes? Why for some clothes are disposable? AND the ramifications of all this. AND how can we change the situation.

My course director at university jokingly told me I was already an artist because I dressed so perfectly to fit the persona. I was amused but also secretly gratified because it is a persona that I try to cultivate through my dress sense.

As written above

I was talking to my parent after I came home from shopping and they told me how I should broaden my horizons and stop wearing just a tshirt and jeans. This inspired me to get some nicer looking tshirts that could be worn with a skirt or nice pants, but are still comfy to keep me looking stylish and comfortable at the same time.

In fifth grade my best friend told me I had to start wearing bikini cut underwear or else we couldn't be friends anymore. That was the start of a long, many-year process of becoming stylish.

Wearing backless or low necklines

Don't remember one.

My freshman year of college, there was this random Sunday afternoon when I was getting off the Chicago Red Line stop and just happened to run into a girl I went to high school with. She’s really cool, and we were definitely friends toward the end of our senior year. I was as psyched to see her as she was to see me to, I remember she leaned in and told me, “I’m drunk right now.” I laughed, it was hilarious. Before we said our goodbyes, she half-drunkenly, half wholeheartedly looked at me and said, “You have style, Lauren Tussey.” I’ll never forget that conversation. It was just a quick compliment to accompany the goodbye, but her words made me realize that my style had become a part of who I was, and I think part of me wanted to hear that.

Trying to dress more my age.

Fashion sustainability at the BF+FA in Brooklyn, NYC.
Style - probably a work session where they bought in a style consultant (who proceeded to insult me when I went for a free consultation afterwards, we argued about what my size was... ummmm wtf - I think I know!)
But really, this isn't much a part of my world... talking about fashion or style.

Does watching Angela Chase on My So-Called Life count?

It's more of a moment, but it was the first time I went to a vintage clothing shop to buy my back-to-school clothes instead of a department store. I realized I'd rather have a few unique items than a bunch of bland ones. It also hid the fact that I couldn't afford the nicer labels that my friends could.

When it comes to clothes I'd rather look and touch than listen.

I've had many. Most of which took place during anguished moments of just not feeling like I was doing it right. All of these conversations seemed to have the same lesson: that having a sense of style is something you build over time, and when you see someone who looks put together, chances are it's because they've worked at it. Nothing is ever effortless.

I had a conversation with my sister on dressing and what we consider basics for a wardrobe/classic pieces and finding our personal style. It resulted in finding un-fancy and making lists of clothing items I loved/wanted/"needed."

Don't believe I have ever had such a conversation.

I can't think of one, which makes me think maybe I should be having more!

That was when I wore a statement ring with a drab work outfit, and I was asked why it was that I only had this small colourful piece to show the real me. It was a bit of an epiphany.
