Here is my phone number. Call me, you won’t regret it

Copenhagen Christel Winther has worked as a model since she was 15 years old. She’s also a stylist and and a fashion director for Stella Magazine. Make it last asks Christel a few questions about sustainability, style and what she would write on a note to Anna Wintour.

How would your mom describe your style? 

– My mom would say my style is raw, elegant and chill.

How do you promote more sustainable fashion for someone who says she’s not into it?

– That sustainable fashion doesn’t have to be a boring, nature colored dress. It can also mean going to a vintage market and buy something someone has worn before.

Have you  somehow customized garment you already own? 

– Yes, I have been customizing a lot of my clothes. Mostly because I buy a lot of vintage, which I sometimes need to sew in, in order to fit my size. I have also changed a sweatshirt from Acne to make the sleeves fit better.

If you had a billboard on Oxford Circus that all the shopping crazy people could see, what would you write on it? 

 You probably already have one.

Jennifer Aniston never showers for more than three minutes. What small things do you do in everyday life to care for the environment? 

– I do the same, and wash all my clothes on 30 degrees.

Favorite fashion-person on Instagram? 

– Cara Delevingne.

Slipping a note in Anna Wintour’s bath robe at the public baths, what would it say? 

– ”Here is my phone number. Call me, you won’t regret it.”
