Who Am I ?

KRISTIN PRIM

July /August 2012

1: Who am I?

Who are you?

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

I founded my own international print fashion publication, Prim, when I was fourteen. When I was around sixteen, I established my own online style diary, eponymously titled Kristin Prim. Since then I’ve been dabbling around in creative direction, modeling, and design collaboration. I never try to tie myself down to one field; any boundary is boring.
I’m currently working on launching a new website, 5, in which I’m already collaborating with some of my favorite creative people. I’m very excited.

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

I am from New York City, and off to wherever my mind finds itself next.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

Gia Carangi.

5: What book is your bible?

Bianca Casady’s Daisy Chain, which I picked up at Cheim & Read. Her work is spellbinding.

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

I love genuineness, love, passion, dedication, intelligence, and a vulnerable confidence. I hate fear and second guesses.

7: What is your raison d’être?

Acceptance and persistence.

8: What is your favorite color?

Black. Always.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Catwoman.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

Wherever I am with someone I love.

11: What turns you on?

Attitude, perfume, cigarettes, sensitivity, eyeliner, and garters.

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

How are you?
