We have a girl crush on Alix Brown. Her style is as if the 60’s and 70’s had a love child and her hair would even make Brigitte Bardot do a double take. Alix intrigues us, she grew up surrounded by music and fashion and the outcome is one bodacious babe that slays the DJ booth. There is something special about a woman that has perfected the winged eyeliner – at least we think so.
Keep on scrolling for our Q+A with Alix and make sure to work your way to the mix she made exclusively for our foamy readers. It will be sure to get your blood pumping!

Foam: Describe your personal style and your favorite 3 fashion icons?

I love 60’s and 70’s Ossie Clark, Andre Courreges and Loris Azzaro. I have an Ossie dress that was a present. I wish j had more, but his pieces are hard to find. I also really love vintage Valentino and Gucci. They can do no wrong.
