|Fashion Designer Amanda Koker from Rose Riot
1-What is your name, what do you do and how can we find you on social media?
My name is Amanda Koker, and I am a fashion designer and blogger! I love to design and sew plus size fashion! I am currently working on a new project called Rose Riot. Rose Riot is an rock and roll lux plus size jacket line! I am so excited and can’t wait to launch. You can follow my journey so far on my blog! The Koker Chronicles! (www.kokerchronicles.com
). I also love posting to Instagram @roseriotfashion Twitter, @roseriotfashion and facebook! www.facebook.com/roseriotfashion
My favorite color is purple.
I have so many different favorite foods, but I guess if I have to choose one it would be home made BBQ pizza.
4-Favorite item in your closet right now?
I would have to say that I love dresses! But there is nothing quite like wearing a dress that I have made for myself. I love my British Dress that I sewed for myself! But I also love the new teal plaid shirt dress I recently received from Torrid! Both dresses are perfect for spring!
There are far to many quotes to choose from! But one of my favorite comedians of all time is Eddie Izzard. And my favorite quote from his personal movie, which helps me continue on this crazy fashion design path is : “You have to believe you can be an astronaut before you can be an astronaut. You’ve got to believe.. for as long as it takes“.
