2018 Z Best Dressed List Maker: Tezza Barton
“I grew up in a family full of artists and musicians. I played in a band with all of my family members for years writing and performing across the country. I got my BFA in fine art/ photography and studied fashion design as well. “ ~ Tezza Barton
A little about the moment that Tezza’s first realized her passion for fashion:
I remember being 7 years old and seeing my 6ft tall grandmother decked in sequins and statement earrings, I knew right then and there I loved fashion. At age 8 I was dressing my sister up and hosting fashion shows for my family to watch her walk down the “hallway”.
The place of fashion in Tezza’s life:
It’s my number one form of expression, no matter what I am doing fashion is apart of it.
I am all about a suit. There is something iconic and simple about being confident enough to wear a suit as a woman, it’s strong, a statement and always looks cool.
We asked Tezza, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”
“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.
Tezza told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.
It’s important to recognize how wasteful we are as humans and how we can make a difference by taking care of the earth and the materials it provides us. Being sustainable is taking responsibility in the industry, being mindful of labor and materials to make the things you love and wear, doing your part goes a long way.
And to wrap up, a fun fact about Tezza:
I carry Cholula in purse because I love it so much.
