Big Fat Flea Model: Amanda Akwei
How did you hear about the Big Fat Flea?
...back when Re/Dress had it's home in Brooklyn, shopping for new clothes. I was told of this magical thing called the Fat Flea, dear sweet fatshionista my heat skipped a beat.
What does the Big Fat Flea mean to you?
Besides a place where I can annually infuse my closet with new pieces on the cheap, it's a place where I can strip down to my skivvies and run around trying on clothes. There will be no sideway glances or rude comments, there will be gracious words and compliments on my underoos and tattoos. The community of fatties that the Big Fat Flea brings together is remarkable, its heart warming and fuel for the spirit.
Who are your style icons or inspirations?
The streets of Brooklyn, seriously look no further than the subway. New Yorkers are some of the best dressed people. Oh and Beth Ditto. I want one of everything in her closet and dresser drawers!
