{Mothica}

McKenzie Ellis is a native Oklahoman living io Brooklyn as a musician, s student, and artist who goes under the alias Mothica. At the age of 15 she started her own vintage clothing booth called The Junk Fairy.

How would you describe your personal style? I’m usually

wearing all-black with metal detailing but occasionally I go for colorful, school-girl inspired silhouettes. Neon and iridescent are my favorite colors.

What is your style mantra? If you look good, you feel good. I wore a party dress to my ACT and I rocked it.

What is your number one fashion rule? Don’t buy shoes you can’t run in.

What is your favorite thing about shopping secondhand? Everything has a history. Especially with vintage,

it makes the items I own so much more valuable to me because they are more unique than 20,000 factory made crop tops at Forever 21.

I wear lipstick on days when... I’m feeling witchy, which is quite often.

Check out The Junk Fairy’s Vintage at Bad Granny’s Bazaar in Oklahoma City and Mothica on SoundCloud.

graduate fashion week. Graduate Fashion Week 2014 took place at The Truman Brewery, from Saturday 31st May - Tuesday 3rd June 2014. The runway show we attended was like no other. Each collection that went down was unlike anything I’ve seen before. I noticed the use of interesting and unexpected textiles that I found to be really inspiring.

Beauty Bold orange lips are a must try this season. The pop of color works really well to off set some muted ensembles of cream, white, and pastels. Team it with flawless dewy skin, and white eyeliner. The white will be sure to brighten your eyes along with making them appear larger. You will be sure to turn heads!

Mix it up with a Smokey Cat Eye a fun 60’s retro look. Put your black eyeliner to use and be bold with it. Play with the shape and the shading. Too much is not possible. Keep the rest of your makeup simple with a dewy fresh look and blush or nude lips.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

“I am what I want to be and can be what I want to become.”

I am third of six kids born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. When I was 12 I decided I wanted a sewing machine for my birthday. As soon as I got it, I started to teach myself how to use it. During that time I decided I wanted to make wearable art by being a fashion designer.

82

Who influences you?

As selfish as it sounds, I am my biggest influence. I am the only person who can give me what I want and do what I want. I am what I want to be and can be what I want to become. My dad influences my artistic side and my mom has made me self-confident. Dr. Mary influences me to be my best and shoot high. Designers influence me by showing me that I can be successful.

What was your first article of clothing you ever designed?

For a long time I just altered already existing clothing to what I wanted. I made dresses and skirts from old clothes or new clothes I didnt like.

What's your favorite part about conceptualizing a design?

My favorite part of conceptualizing a design is taking my inspiration and making it into something physical. For example, I am really interested in the human skeleton so I love figuring out how to turn bone structure into ready to wear clothing.

83

How would you define your personal style? It’s hard to define my personal style because I think I am hard to define. I like to think my outfits are full of surprises. I would say that I lean toward a grunge, punk rock style but I will honestly wear anything. I just wear what I want and feel like wearing.


We asked Lizzy to make us a playlist full of her all time favorite songs. Below are her picks. On the opposite side are some of Lizzy’s designs from her Day of the Dead Colection.
