She’s like the epitome of simple serene and elegant. She doesn’t like if you add too many old elements it will distract from what’s already there. She tries to direct attention to one element. She chooses to place the attention on the asymmetrical element of the shirt to keep people from being distracted by contrasting elements that takes away from the outfits value.”  Sarah Kreitzer, junior photographer at UNC.
