Here is our interview with Holloway! Thanks for being such an amazing model. A little bit about Holloway.
“One thing that I try to promote is education in women: kind of being the ‘full package’ as it were, brains and beauty. I have 3 Undergraduate Degrees and start Grad school in June.”
Q: What do you enjoy most about modeling?
A: Modeling to me, is about loving your body – every curve, stretch mark, bump and bruise. Modeling helps me see the beauty in myself. Every BODY is beautiful.
Q: Who is your Fashion Idol?
A: I wouldn’t say I had a ‘fashion idol’ but I love vintage and retro looks. I model my personal style off of Christina Hendricks from the AMC TV show ‘MadMen’. Her character is also my namesake. Janie Bryant does the costuming on the show, and she has found about a million ways to a woman look beautiful.
Q: What about Fashion is most important to you?
A: I think that it is important for fashion to be accessible, above all. Some looks I see on the runway and in stores are complete nonsense. They don’t work for everyday women! It’s important for designers to celebrate women who work, who are moms, who appreciate modesty, etc. We’re not a ‘one-look-fits-all’ society.
Q: What is your favorite thing about yourself?
A: My favorite thing about myself? Well! My hourglass shape, that’s for sure! I appreciate my self-confidence and the fact it has inspired others to feel confident in themselves. When I was a kid, and adults would say, “You’re such a pretty girl!” My mom taught me to respond with, “Yes. I am!” Good advice at any age. My brain is pretty awesome to!
Q: What do you love about MIKAROSE Clothing?
A: I love MIKAROSE because they understand the ‘modest’ does not mean uncomfortable, stuffy and unflattering. MIKAROSE is an incredibly classy line and works on so many body types. You can really tell that there is a lot of love invested in this company.
Q: What is advice that you would give to women about why they should wear/buy MIKAROSE Clothing?
A: MIKAROSE provides a unique look to any woman. The looks, colors, and prints are very becoming. I think that when women hear “modest clothing” they may immediately thinkthat the line is not for them…but seriously, take a look. Try some things on. These clothes are not meant to sit on hangers – they need to be worn!
