Presentation of Bella
My name is Bella and I am 26 years old. I am gothic, and I love the creepy cute style. The two together, it's a perfect match for my personality. I became an ambassador because I think Himesama clothing is amazing. Between the clothes and their super cute illustrations on them, the really cute necklaces, and the rest of the accessories offered by the brand. I couldn't help but love it! It speaks to me, it's right up my alley. It's a great opportunity for me to collaborate with Himesama.
What is your style, since when and why did you choose it?
My style is a mix of gothic and creepy cute. I started to dress like that when I was 13 years old. I chose this style because it fits my personality, plus it's original. I love dressing like this, I can't see myself wearing anything else. My style is my universe.
What do clothes mean to you?
For me, clothes are a good way to express oneself and to show off. It's also a freedom to dress the way you like, so why deprive yourself?
Did you have to face any prejudice or criticism because of your style?
I had to face many criticisms especially in the past concerning my style of dress. But no matter what, the criticism never got to me. I have always continued to be true to myself and do the things I love for me. I have to like it, not others. Over time, I have come to understand that many of those people who criticize and take the liberty of attacking others on the way they dress are either jealous, who will never have the strength to do the same because they are too afraid of how others will look at them, or simply disrespectful. I will never change the person I am because of people like them. At least I'm not hurting anyone.
What would you advise to someone who likes more alternative styles, but doesn't dare yet?
If someone doesn't dare to adopt an alternative style, whatever it is, even though he or she would like to; my best advice would be to say that you only have one life and that you have to live it to the fullest. You have to do the things you like for yourself and know how to free yourself from the social pressure that surrounds you. If we do things according to others, then we forget ourselves and we can't be happy.
Anything else to add?
My conclusion is to be true to yourself, embrace your individuality no matter how different it may be.
