You worked with Chicago-based designer DonCc on your pregame look for the final home game. How did you envision placing Klarna’s aesthetic into your outfit?

I was familiar with Klarna’s look from working with them. Don C is a magical person with design and clothing. I wanted to make sure I put something together that represented Klarna and myself. I’ve been getting more into fashion, so I wanted to blend the two worlds.

The outfit featured a lot of pink. What was your initial thought when it was presented to you?

At first, I didn’t want to do it. My team does a great job of providing me with information to help me make decisions. Right away, I wasn’t feeling it, but when it was explained to me, the color of Klarna and more, it was easy for me to throw in some black leather pants to mix it. It was a great outfit.

You mentioned adding your style and working with Don C. How was that collaboration, that meeting of minds? How were you able to convey your thoughts?

Dunks are my favorite shoe, so I wanted to incorporate something like that. When Don said punk, we found some that went perfectly with the fit. We mixed it, and it was great. I got the pants from my closet. I didn’t want to wear jeans cause I wanted something to pop out. I threw on those leather pants, and my mirror pic showed it was cool.

On the fashion end, you are getting deeper into the world. Be a fashion influencer and have a creative shop on Klarna that features your favorite looks. How did you choose what you wanted to showcase?

I wanted to send a message that you can create your style. You don’t have to follow anyone else. If you like wearing skinny jeans, wear skinny ones. If you like wearing a baggie, you can wear a baggy. If you wanna mix and match, you can mix and match. Just trying to send a message to people out there who want to get dressed up. That anything you wear, you can put your style and your flavor to it. It’s all about just having confidence and belief in whatever you want to wear.

My team, mom, and sisters picked those specific pieces for the pieces. They know me a lot. They know my style and what I like.
