Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
[1979 by the Smashing Pumpkins]



Ok, so… at first glance I thought, cool another girl rocking a cute sailors outfit. Then I saw her shaved hair and then the ear stretchers>> and I knew that I just had to take a photo.  Her style, I think is a tamed version of Harajuku street fashion>> and I applaud her for daring to be different.

The team from Fashion & Style are dedicated bloggers that give me insight on things that I would not have even known. I ❤ and thank them for their work.

Fashion & Style Guru

The breakout model Amira Ahmed is more than just a beautiful face framed by a short, edgy haircut. For the half-Somali, half-Filipino, who surfs the West Coast —  “I love waiting for that special wave” — and hits the Tignes in the French Alps to snowboard between fashion seasons (“simply a must!”), modeling is as much about traveling and maintaining the routine-less lifestyle she knows so well as it is a job.

Born in Stockholm, the 22-year-old grew up on her stepfather’s boat, where, she says “the sea became my playground.” Upon coming ashore, she attended boarding school in Prague, then college in London where she studied international relations.

“It’s natural that I would find work that I could do everywhere,” she says. Now based in Brooklyn, Ms. Ahmed most recently landed campaigns for Gap, AllSaints and L’Oreal.
