Big Fat Flea Model: Janie Martinez
How did you hear about the Big Fat Flea?
In its original incarnation, from 2006 or 2007, I think. I was finding my voice and reclaiming my joy in my body at that time, so it was just a natural extension of that.
What does the Big Fat Flea mean to you?
Its like Fashion Wonderland on a budget. Its finding an oasis of awesome in the middle of a shitstorm.
Who are your style icons or inspirations?
I always think of post WWII Paris as an inspiration. I watch classic movies and just drool over some of the sumptuous gowns created by Edith Head or Adrian.
