I recently had the incredible opportunity to ask Kristen a few questions about her fan fashion label, her favourite Star Wars fashion items, and her thoughts about the lack of licensed Padme’ Amidala apparel. Read on for the full interview –
How long have you been a Star Wars fan?
My earliest Star Wars memory is playing with my neighbors in 1999 after seeing the Phantom Menace in theaters. It wasn’t a huge part of my life, though, until about five years ago when I decided to do a re-watch and fell in love all over again.
Do you have a favourite Star Wars character?
It’s so hard to pick just one! I love R2, Obi-Wan, and Leia.
How long have you been creating Star Wars inspired apparel?
What are some of your favourite Star Wars fashion items in your wardrobe or wishlist (can be something you’ve made/plan to make)?
I recently bought a pair of the Po-Zu Rey Hi boots. They are super comfortable and subtle enough to wear anywhere. Another favorite is my Elhoffer Design Twilight Dolman. Her pieces are really high-quality.
I used to sell a wide range of all-over print designs, including dresses, sportswear, and sweaters. I want to eventually get back to that.
Do you have any particular favourite Star Wars fashion brands (licensed or fan made)?
Do you have a personal favourite design from your own range of Star Wars inspired apparel?
One of my very first designs was the “Chewdolph the Red-Nosed Wookiee” Sweater, so I’m partial to that one.
How do you decide which Star Wars characters/elements to feature in your designs?
I try to make the designs I would want to wear. I create a lot of designs with female characters because they have historically been so underrepresented.
Your range includes Padme’ Amidala inspired designs – what are your thoughts on the lack of licensed Padme’ Amidala themed apparel?
I don’t get it! Padme is such a style icon! She has some of the best costumes and the ideas for themed apparel are endless!
Where can fans find ‘Fashions For Fans’ on social media?
Many thanks to Kristen for her time in answering my questions. I love highlighting creative fan made fashion – especially when it features our favourite female Star Wars characters! Her beautiful range includes a wide variety of designs and garment styles to choose from – I want them all!
