Urban Bush Babes Interview

Leave a comment

Nikisha and Cipriana of Urban Bush Babes have kept me on the edge of my vintage fashion seat these days with their cool quirky fashion sense. I love how they combine several decades of styles together into an effortless hipster look. If you haven’t had the chance to check them out, I suggest you do that after you read my interview with co-creator Nikisha.


 1. What piece of clothing or accessory did you HAVE to have when you were a kid? (I had to have LA Gear sneakers with purple laces, of course)

The LA Gears were a must have for me too! I also had to have the jelly sandals 🙂
2. What lady (or gent) is your fashion icon, someone who you aspire to be? If you could transcend space and time to meet up with them, where would you take them shopping?

This was a hard question to answer because I honestly have never had a style icon. But I do draw my inspiration from people like the Olsen twins, Bob Marley, Zoe Kravitz, and Kurt Cobain. I prefer clothes from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Although I have been leaning more towards 90s grunge lately and love the looks from Kurt Cobain and Zoe Kravitz.

Now as for taking the Olsen’s and Zoe Kravitz shopping I would actually let them take me shopping…lol, because I am sure they can do more damage in this area and can show me many many cool vintage and thrift shops to go to 🙂 And as for Bob Marley and Kurt Cobain, I would take them to all the thrift stores I go to in New York.

 3. What’s the most jacked up outfit you’ve ever worn? Do you have pictures? 
This is a tough one because I have worn a lot of jacked up outfits, especially when I was younger. I remember owning a red velvet outfit complete with top and bell bottoms, so horrendous!!! Thank God I don’t have pictures of that!!!

4. How necessary are unnecessary scarves?

Scarves aren’t necessary for me unless its cold outside and I need one to go around my neck

So there you have it, fashion from the point of view of Nikisha from Urban Bush Babes. I must say that I’m a tad disappointed that there aren’t any photos of this red velvet pantsuit. Was it crushed velvet? We’ll never know. . . I’ll end this piece with another darling photo of Nikisha workin’ it.
