As for the overlap between music and style, Welch explains that it's all about creative expression."I was always interested in clothes, and fashion seemed like this outlet for creativity. Dressing up, for me, has always been a self-actualizing of the inner spirit," she says."I feel like it’s a way to get to the soul of you outside of yourself.

A lot of people just write off fashion as something kind of silly, and it really is not for many people. It’s something really powerful and very transformative.”
