We recently caught up with Alexis Nicole Fried from @itsbyalexis, one of our favorite up + coming creators. After meeting Alexis at Natalie Off Duty's September launch party, we were instantly charmed by her style, authenticity, and enthusiasm for INSPR's Creator Community.

Did we mention she's only 18? Born and bred in New York City,  Alexis is set to graduate from high school next month, but with big plans for the future. As an aspiring model (and mother to Maltipoo, Rocky), we can't wait to see what's in store for her.

Check out the full interview below!

What is the one treat you can’t stop yourself from having?

I am obsessed with dark chocolate. I eat it every single day.

What’s your dream travel destination?

My dream travel destination is Dubai. I am dying to go! It would be incredible if I would be able to go to the top of the Burj Khalifa and visit the gorgeous shopping malls and beaches. The clothes are incredible there!

What are the top 3 items on your bucket list?

I'd love to attend Paris Fashion Week, start my own clothing line (model it as well), and go to Thailand and ride elephants!

Where do you look/go to for inspiration?

I always look to my mom for life inspiration. She is my everything and inspires me to follow my dreams every single day. I also look to social media for inspiration; it allows us to have the power to connect with individuals all over the world. It is so cool to see each person’s style and how they represent their life. I also love looking at fashion shows and magazines from the 90’s.

An item in your closet you can’t live without.

I cannot live without a big sweatshirt. Everyone needs a big, comfy sweatshirt in their lives!
