How has your hometown influenced your style? Ahhh Melbourne! A cold, urban, colorful and creative, lushly nature filled diverse city at the bottom of the planet! We roamed the streets in the 90s, wore grungy streetwear (flannels and cons), listened to punk rock and it was all very low key cool. We were ravers, clubbers, skaters and artists and we only wanted to wear kicks. What else would we wear?!
What does Common Ace mean to you? A home and a dream come true for all the sneaker loving ladies of the world!
