Q: What to do you do?
A: I make costume jewelry for my line Ilia by Tatiana Ilia.
Q: What inspires you?
A: I’ve always had a love for costume jewelry and fashion. But more importantly I’ve had an interest in philanthropy and giving back to other countries and sometime in the near future I would like to intertwine my line with many philanthropic ventures.
Q: What Is philanthropy?
A: Philanthropy is giving back to others in different areas, communities, countries or states in any which way that you can. Whether it’s providing food, shelter, money, or moral support.
Q: How do you plan on intertwining your line with philanthropy?
A: I plan on intertwining my line with philanthropy by going to Haiti which is my land of origin, and creating a factory so that women can work to create a means of income for themselves. The factory will also serve as a safe house to provide those women with somewhere to stay and life coaches.
Q: What kind of music are you listening to right now?
A: I think they do coincide with each other because music has the power of changing your mood, how you feel, what your thinking and your creative views.
Q: Who’s your favorite artist right now?
A: I can’t say that I have a favorite artist in particular but on artist that has a great influence on me is Jay-Z because I admire his ambition, his progression, his perseverance, and business ventures. He is the opitamy of rags to riches because he has risen up from his adversities and made a positive impact on his life and many lives.
Q: What is style?
A: Style is individuality. Making what you wear your own.
Q: Do you feel style is important to Society (why)?
A: I don’t think that style is important to structuring a society but it is important in regards to expressing yourself as an individual.
Q: If there is one thing you could do at this very moment what would it be?
A: Go to Haiti and learn more about the culture and the people because I haven’t gone there since I was a little girl. And I feel like when I was younger I took everything that I saw over there for granted and now that I am older I would be able to embrace the culture and people of Haiti more.
Q: Whats the next step for your brand?
A: The next step for my brand is to make it known within the United States.
Q: How would you like to change the world?
A: I would like to change the world by ending discrimination and trying to get people to be grateful for the life they have been given and to live their life with a positive purpose so that they could impact others around them.
Q: How do you feel about the Basedgod?
A: Your talking about Lil B? I don’t much about him, I’m sorry.
