As you’d expect, the Garage office is full of fascinating and creative people. For the first post in our Quick Questions series, we sit down with Amanda Capano, Junior Concept Designer & Stylist.
When you were little, what was your dream job?
My dream job was always related to fashion. Travelling and discovering the latest trends while inspiring and motivating people along the way. I’m kinda living it…
If you had to describe your job in a movie title, what would it be?
The Pursuit of Happiness. There’s a quote from that movie that I live by, “If you want something, go get it. Period.” We all start somewhere to get where we want to be, you gotta work hard at it which is why I can relate the movie to my job. It’s non-stop pushing!
Where is your favourite place to work?
I’m loving our design labs in the office. People watching is also always inspiring for my work.
What music is the most inspiring to you when you work?
I listen to everything! Right now, I’m all about that Girl album by Pharrell. Beyoncé, Amy Winehouse, M.I.A. and Frank Ocean are always faves, as well as the Chili Peppers and a lot of hip-hop! It really depends on my mood.
If you could style one celebrity, who would it be?
I have 3: Pharrell Williams, M.I.A. and Gwen Stefani. I’d love to talk jewelry with Iris Apfel too. She’s mega!
If you could be an accessory, what would you be?
A pair of sweet mirrored shades or stacked friendship bracelets. You can never wear too many! But I also have a weakness for bags… tough question!
If you could describe your life in a color, what would it be?
Rainbow! The brighter the better!
What do you love most about your job?
Collaborating. Creating. Travelling.
If you could live in one pair of jeans for the rest of your life, which would they be?
My indigo distressed boyfriend jeans from Garage. Comfy, cool and they go with everything!
As a stylist, what makes an outfit?
Attitude. It’s all in the way you rock it. If you love it and rock it with confidence, then my job is complete.
