Meet the #FleeQueen, Ameerah Floyd, one of Chicago’s most potent style mavens and fashion stylists.
Her looks bridge tomboy aesthetics with classic feminine structures. Influenced by the early 2000’s and a lover of Bape, she exemplifies what it means to have Authorized Style.
How would you define A LOOK?
– Something that makes you feel an emotion; that makes a statement.
Describe your ideal outfit.
– Cohesive & Comfortable.
Do you have a favorite time period for fashion inspiration?
– I don’t think I have a favorite time period actually. But I do like vintage very much. But as much as I hate to say it I’m a 2000s girl. But I think I more so just gravitate to pieces that make me feel a little funky.
If you had to wear the same outfit everyday (that you already own) what would it be?
What fashion house or clothing line would you love to design for/collaborate with? Why?
– I know I’m going to sound like a ‘hype’ but if I ever had the opportunity to do anything under A Bathing Ape or just with Nigo in general I would. I love streetwear and I feel like no one did it better than what Nigo did with the Bathing Ape brand. He penetrated every area of consumerism: home decor, footwear, beauty, food, music; but with real passion and creativity. It’s ‘the’ household brand if you ask me. That or either Prada/Miu Miu. Miuccia Prada is a genius. Everything she does I love. She’s able to create a certain atmosphere through both brands with each season. And even though each brand has its own individuality they’re both very consistent and can even be intertwined at some point, I think. Bape satisfies my tomboy self and Prada is my more feminine side.
