Home Zoning With Kylie Griffiths in London

POSTED BY FIZZY STAFF

Known for her very own fashion sense as fashion editor of VICE and stylist of the stars, 29 year old Kylie Griffiths, called Kyles, already made herself a name on the East London creative scene. But she’s more than just fashion. Signed by Select Model Management her unique look has been in greater demand than ever. People can’t stop talking about Kylie these days, that’s why we sat down with this Capricorn lady and started talking to her.


Kylie, you just relocated from the city center into a more quiet neighbourhood, how come?

Partly because it was cheaper but also because I like to switch off when I’m at home. I like to be able to walk around in a silly tracksuit and not worry about bumping into anybody. I think it’s important to separate work from home.

What was the trigger 4 u to get into the fashion scene and how did it happen/evolve?

It was completely by accident – I started assisting a stylist when I left college and it all came from there. I realised I really enjoyed it and pursued it off the back of that.

How did throwing parties come about and care to share any behind-the-scenes?

I’ve always Dj-ed and wanted to throw parties where I could hear my favourite kind of music. When Nu-Rave became really big i wanted to start a Hip Hop night as I felt there was a lack of nights that played that kind of music. We once threw a party at Effes club in Dalston and we had people swinging from the lights and landing onto the snooker tables – I’m not sure the venue realised what they had signed up for!

You just started GRLPWR Gang, tell us more about it.

I started GRLPWR Gang with Kirsti Hadley. Kirsti was managing me and we felt there was a space in the creative industries where girls could come together to share ideas, network and help other women break into the industry.

Is there a reason that Girlpower is such a big deal at the moment?

It’s definitely having a moment – and hopefully it’ll last. I think it’s because there have been so many empowering women succeeding recently and really pushing girl power.

As a DJ, what musically gives you the biggest buzz right now?

I love a mix of music – when I’m Djing I love to play grime and hip hop but when I’m at home or listening on my iPhone I’m normally listening to something like Bring Me The Horizon!!

What bands/acts are getting it right rn in terms of sound and style?

I love Taylor Swift for just her whole general vibe.

Name one major dislike of yours within the fashion world?

Bitchiness

When it comes to styling how much is intuition and how much is research for you?

About half and half. I feel that a lot of the time you get put with clients because of your type of style and taste, so that comes into play, but there is a lot of research to be done depending on the job that you are working on, in terms of what designers are right, what looks would work etc.

What does your future hold in store(s) for you?

Who knows! I love travelling, and my secret hobby is surfing so would love to be able to do a lot more of that!
