Who Am I ?


September 2011

1: Who am I?

Cody Spencer, a downtown boy interested in all things fashion, art, and divine!

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

My forte is in fashion design and illustration. Currently I am building my portfolio and breaking into freelancing.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I am from a small town in Pennsylvania filled with rednecks and Amish folk. The same small town as the ever so brilliant artist, Jeff Koons!

4: Who is your biggest hero?

My grandmothers’ and mother, for showing me how women can dress. Among others are Diana Vreeland and Richard Avedon, Thierry Mugler, Daphne Guinness, John Galliano, Nadja Auerman, Alexander Lee McQueen, Charles Frederick Worth, and one courageous woman that moves me the most, Jillian Mercado.

5: What book is your bible?

My sketchbook; without it, I would be lost.

6: What are some things you love?  And some things you hate?

I love all things divine; Diana Vreeland, an Elie Saab gown, severe women who dress with attitude, and a bald-headed black bitch with legs for days! I despise hate.

7: What is your raison d’être?

My grandmothers’ and mother for influencing me as a child to let my fantasies become my reality.

8: What is your favorite color?

Color darling, color! All of them are beautiful, but red is my favorite.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

I love Mystic, but I recently designed a skirt inspired by the original Storm from X-Men, It’s draped and connects to her wrists!

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

At the moment it’s Le Bain atop of the Standard Hotel. I am obsessed with the East Village and anything below 14th St. St. Marks Place is a safe haven as well.

11: What turns you on?

A classy, rich, Parisian, power-bitch in Thierry Mugler darling!

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the
one asking?

I have no idea!
