New Zealand Fashion Museum · 'to fashion' Intro - Six

I am:

Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm a fan of wealth and taste. My name is Six. Why Six? Because Seven seemed ostentatious. My mountain is a mystery. My river is a riddle. But I am from the land and of the land and to the land I will return. I grew up in Kirikiriroa, of Scottish and English decent, with three sisters, a traditional mum and a hardworking stepfather. My parents gave me love, support and good values. During your darkest days you can lose everything, but no one can steal your values. The world can be a tough place and at some stage we will all experience trauma. Values not only dictate how we react to the world, but also how the world reacts to us. We can't always choose our situation. What we can choose is how we react to it.

I am wearing:
