WHO GABRIELA GONZALEZ, 28

I AM a food photographer and chef.

I AM WEARING shoes from Kmart I bought for $5, leggings from ASOS and a top, cardigan and jeans that I cut off from Savers. I bought my sunnies from a $1 store in the Docklands. I generally try not to spend more than $20 per item.

MY STYLE IS a bit like a teenager in New York.

I ADMIRE THE STYLE OF Yayoi Kusama. She wears crazy colours without a care in the world. I love how she's not afraid to wear colours and patterns.

MY FAVOURITE LABELS are John Paul Gaultier — I love the crazy cuts and everything seems to come from another timeline. I like Gap, too, it has a relaxed style and it’s good to mix with basics.

MY FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP IS ASOS online. The designs are really cool and the fabrics are nice. I don't have much experience with the quality and I don't know how long they will last, but so far so good. I like shopping online because you can take your time; you order it, try it on, ask your friends and if you don't like it, you can send it back.

MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE WAS a long tartan skirt with pants underneath, a sweater and a cardigan on top. I also wore Mary Jane shoes with no socks, but the problem was I wore too many layers; I was trying to rebel or search for myself.

WHEN I WAS A KID everything in my life was pink: if it wasn't pink, I wouldn't wear it or use it. And I loved dresses as well. I was a very spoilt child.

I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD IN a trikini. It should be one or the other, but it's trying too hard.
