Ombre: If you could name your personal style, what would it be?

Miranda: This is a hard question. I love comfy clothes, and I love being casual, but put together. I love pieces that are a little unique, and I’m a big fan of cool T-shirts.

Columbia, SC native Hannah Davis proves that you can be your own boss in your 20s and more importantly you can also create change.

He sees fashion as the perfect means for self expression and uses it as a mood ring of sorts, claiming that the way he dresses sends a message to people about how he’s feeling on a particular day.

“I love fashion because it is like an extension of my personality and what kind of mood I’m in. It can tell people to back off and leave me alone, or it can invite people in and show the softer side of me. Fashion gives a certain amount of freedom to people and allows them to be who they want to be,” he says.
