2018 Z Best Dressed List Maker: Tess Pargas
“I am a proud Nuyorican, from Brooklyn, who loves to play dress up and collect exclusive vintage pieces that I find on the web. I currently working on my career as an actor/screenwriter. “ ~ Tess Pargas
A little about the moment that Tess’s first realized her passion for fashion:
I first realized I loved fashion when I was 7. I use to watch my dad wear some of the most unusual see through Jean Paul Gaultier shirts with bulky combat boots and oversized cargo pants, and that’s when I understood that fashion is all about who you are.
My favorite fashion brand Is Zara. Sometimes I spend hours a day checking out their new releases.
The place of fashion in Tess’s life:
Fashion for me has always been about self expression. I always have trouble describing my “style aesthetic” because what I wear is a true reflection of how I feel. As life continues to test, and teach me things about myself, and the world , my ensembles become apart of those learning experiences; always changing, always evolving, always growing.
My signature piece will always be my distressed denim Levi’s that I thrifted at the L train vintage for $13 and destroyed myself. I feel like they make any top look good. Weather I throw on a lose vintage T or a deep plunge satin top, it always ends up looking like a statement.
We asked Tess, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”
Definitely Gilda Ambrosia. She’s a WHOLE VIBE .
“And would you actually do it?”
And, speaking of grabbing someone’s style from their closet, many of the Trench members (aka Trenchies) state that one of the things they like most about being part of the Never Ending Closet community is being fashionable while being very environmentally conscious and sustainable.
Tess told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.
Sustainability in fashion to me means staying true to oneself. Despite how trends influences fashion, I’m still an individual who knows what I like what I don’t like. You can still be on trend but also be you
And to wrap up, a fun fact about Tess:
I’m a big foodie. I love to try unusual delicacies like cricket, worms, and snails.
