Star Wars fashion has been everywhere lately thanks to the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The best part about Star Wars though, is that it never goes out of style. Our friend, Leslie Kay of DisneyBound, has been making Star Wars-inspired outfits since the beginning, crafting perfectly themed outfits around the iconic characters’ costumes.
To celebrate The Force Awakens, Leslie had her friend, artist Matthew Simpson, create sketches of Leslie’s Star Wars DisneyBound outfits. After seeing the beautiful results, we had to know more. So we chatted with Leslie all about Star Wars style and why the galaxy far, far away is right on trend with today’s fashion.
Why are you a fan of Star Wars?
I became a fan of Star Wars well before I had seen a movie. Every single one of my male cousins were massive Star Wars fans in the ’80s. When I came on the scene, my cousins had shelves of Star Wars memorabilia, posters, video games, and VHS tapes. Star Wars was one of my first memories from pop culture as it was back then. Is it possible to say that my love for Star Wars is genetic?
