street style muse: Shala Monroque

shala-monroque-atpb-1

New York Creative Director of Garage Magazine, Shala Monroque, is my street style muse for today. With an eye for detail and a love of expressive colour, this Caribbean beauty says her love of colour came from “growing up in Saint Lucia and being surrounded by tropical flowers and a mesmerising ocean.” The vivid colours which surrounded Shala’s younger years have followed this street style favourite and saturated her bold and bright fashion choices.

Shala Monroque wears her wardrobe with confidence and she affirms that “it’s not about the dress, it’s about your attitude and the confidence you have when you walk down the street.”
