Five Whats with April Johnson

Besides arts and crafts, I also love fashion, and I used to do lots of fashion illustrations. So this week's Five Whats is dedicated to fashion and my guest is April Johnson, a fashion stylist I really like, from New York City. April made her start in fashion at American Vogue and since then she's been working consistently as a high-fashion stylist with clients ranging from Marc Jacobs, John Varvatos, Helmut Lang, to celebrities like George Clooney, Bill Murray and The White Stripes. What did you have for breakfast?
2 cups of tea with soy and banana nut crunch near naked granola and vanilla soy in my tea cup after the 2nd tea.

What was your favorite fashion moment?

Snapping a 4 inch heel in front of Anna Wintour's office on day 4 at Vogue.

What was your favorite project?

Marc Jacobs ads with Michael Stipe and Juergen Teller in Georgia.

What was the best purchase you've ever made?
Every piece of Margiela I've ever bought.

What are your inspirations?

Friends, family, nature, art, music, flea markets, Paris, Martin Margiela....

(Bonus What) If you weren't a fashion stylist, what would you most likely be?
A dog rescuer or a cheese maker.
