How do you decide what to wear in the morning?
Dorsey: “I typically decide at night what I’m going to wear the following day. And it’s usually dependent on what classes I have the next day and the weather.”
Who is your style inspiration?
Dorsey: “I combine elements of Kanye West and David Beckham. I love Kanye West because he does literally whatever he wants. I have a lot of confidence in what I wear but not as much confidence as Kanye or as much money. Where as David Beckham has his essential pieces that he styles and then his more preppy looks which I like a lot.”
How would you describe your style in one word?
Dorsey: “Essential. If I had to strip my closet down to ten pieces, I’d have a lot of black, white and earthy tones and I could still do a lot with those and have it still be an essential piece of me with just basic items.”
What is the style culture of your hometown, Rapid City South Dakota?
Dorsey: “The style culture where I am from, as far as women, there are a lot of girls that seem to have some style about them. Whereas, male fashion was lacking, I personally had one friend that was into fashion. There were people that appreciated things but didn’t go along with it. I think that comes from being from a smaller town where people don’t find expression in clothing. Everyone knows each other, where as when you’re walking down a city street you may not know the people so you have to express yourself in a way other than your personality.”
