WHO SYLVIA GUNN, 16

I AM a student.

I AM WEARING a tourist T-shirt from New Caledonia; my skirt was a hand-me-down from my sister, which she probably made; socks from an op shop; and shoes from RetroStar. My hat is from Dangerfield and my necklace is from the Camberwell Market.

MY STYLE IS raging hipster.

I ADMIRE THE STYLE OF Kimbra because she does live shows in the most amazing dresses; and Lady Gaga - she's so out there. I love it.

MY FAVOURITE LABELS are Princess Highway because they are cheap but still awesome; and Tightrope - they make jumpsuits and they are fun and wearable.

MY FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP IS Dangerfield. As soon as I walk in there I've got lots of ideas. I also love the Camberwell Market. It's really cheap and everyone always seems to be selling their best clothes.

MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE WAS when I used to try and channel Barbie and everything I wore had to be pink and purple.

WHEN I WAS A KID I used to dress up as a fairy but, these days, I have a Buzz Lightyear suit.

I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD IN jeggings. It's taking the skinny jean too far.
