UNFOLDING THE HUMAN BODY WITH MICHELE ANDREWS

By Oriana Kubinska
You know who loves Michele Andrew? We do. She's a mother of three, commercial Stylist and Visual Merchandiser for a luxury retailer. She is heavily engaged in the art and music communities in Seattle and Los Angeles and is a proponent for queer and feminist issues.

Read our interview with an artist and, who knows, it may inspire you to get a shoe tattoo.

You said your first job became motherhood, how did you "fell" into styling?

As a child, I used to dress my mother for work every day because I was drawn to her image.  She was like a living doll to me, my hero and my heart. She taught me how to be self-sufficient, a lady, and a mother. She is the ultimate. 


Michele Andrew interview for Miista

Has becoming a mother changed your perspective on yourself?
It helps me chill out and take accountability for my actions.  If you can teach someone how to respect and love themselves, then you can do it for yourself. That is the reward of motherhood. 


Michele Andrew interview for Miista


You play a lot with layers, clever cuts and sensuous details, your art is a puzzle to deconstruct and from which be inspired, would you agree?
That is a nice way, to sum up my playtime with creativity.  I don’t see my work from an outside perspective, so thank you. 


Michele Andrew interview for MIISTA

You also described your aesthetic as "Grandma and Grandpa inclinations with a dash of French", that is clever, why would you use these words?
I borrow from my grandma's style which was old world French 40’s and try to make it into something new and relatable to me.

...And 
modelling as well?
Yes, but definitely not seriously. It's where I started, on the wrong side of the lens ;) I was working with different artists when I was in my early 20s, and they wanted me to dress up and pretend like I have control over my facial expressions. Haha.


Michele Andrew for Miista interviewed by Oriana Kubinska

There's a feeling of sensuality or eroticism in some of your works, do you feel it represents you?
It's a part of me, my sense of humour and my sensuality as a woman and mother. 


Michele Andrew interviewed by Oriana Kubinska for Miista

In pretty much all of your Instagram posts, there's a feminist caption, are you a feminist?
My mother and my grandmother, they are my framework for feminism, strength, gentleness, and a whole lot of bad ass. So, yes, I was born into feminism. 


Michele Andrew interviewed by Oriana Kubinska for Miista

So who are your models?
My mother, she’s in my images that I create. 

Michele Andrew interview for MIISTA

You clearly love shoes, you have an amazing tattoo on your right hand of a pair of Margiela boots, why do you feel so attracted to them?
I appreciate the design, it’s solving problems for me like comfort and uniqueness with qualitative practicality.

I saw you featured one of our boots in your posts, could we assume you like Miista? :-)
I do love your shoes. 

Michele Andrew interview for Miista by Oriana Kubinska

Any favourite styles?
I love my boots, the Anne heels, and the Mary heel.


Michele Andrew interview for Miista by Oriana Kubinska


Mother, model, stylist, artist, creative consultant... If you wouldn't have done all these things, what kind of career you'd have like to pursue?
There’s not much else I’d rather be doing than what I’m choosing to do now.
