The talented fashion stylist also went on to thank his late mother for inspiring him to get to where he is today, saying:

“When she left us around this time last year, I was very lost and confused. I spent two weeks in her room trying to make sense of what I am going to do or make out of this life thing now that she’s not here. And then I woke up one morning and remembered her words, to go out there and show the world what I am made of. Each day from then on, I fought so hard to do exactly that.”
