Meet Our Staff - Sazeed

 

As an independent boutique we pride ourselves on connecting with our clients in a way that's a little more intimate than the average big store experience.

Here's an opportunity for you guys to get to know our amazing staff before you meet them in-store (or maybe you've already met them).

Our Fourth installment of Meet Our Staff features one of our new monkeys, Sazeed. A man who with fashion aspiration.

All clothes worn in the shoot are available in-store at IIIMNKYS (except the hat!), and are styled by Sazeed himself.

Brands featured in this editorial: Naked & Famous, Zanerobe


Meet Our Staff - Sazeed


What’s your name and what do you outside of IIIMNKYS?

Hey I’m Sazeed. I study marketing at John Abbott and hopefully I’ll go to JMSB soon.

What do you want to do with your degree?

I want to start my own clothing line, primarily making jeans. I’m really inspired by Naked & Famous and everything that they've done with denim.

What inspired you to think of doing your own thing in fashion?

Honestly, I have a lot of things I want to do in the future: being a director, being in the arts scene and so on.

I sketched a lot as a kid so hopefully I can keep doing that and make the transition to design.

Is that why you started working here at IIIMNKYS?

Yea! I feel like it’s a great learning experience, I don’t know as much as I thought I did. I thought that I knew a lot and when I came here, I found out that I know nothing.

You’ve been here a week, are you comfortable styling people yet? How do you approach styling women?

Yea I feel like I’m getting comfortable and I can sort of tell by what people are wearing how they would like to dress.

Styling women is a tough one, I find that by asking them what kind of music they’re into I can usually get an insight into their taste.

There is definitely a strong correlation between music and fashion.

So what does your musical taste say about your style?

Nothing really, I listen to pretty much everything [Laughs]

Even Taylor Swift?

Favourite artist. T-Swizzay, you know? [Laughs]

Favourite place to go out in Montreal?

Winnies (Sir Winston Churchill), definitely on a Tuesday with that 5 à 8 happy hour.

No in all honesty, SUWU is definitely my favourite place to go, as well as Big In Japan.

I’m usually wearing a wide brim hat, kind of like Theophilus London, and Oliver Peoples sunglasses. I really don’t care what people think and it’s definitely not a fashion statement.

Favourite drink at SUWU?

Gotta be the Wu-Tang. I know, I know, I look like a guy who would drink that. I honestly hate beer.

Favourite thing about working at IIIMNKYS?

The people definitely, coolest staff around. I also like learning about the products in great detail. If I want to make jeans one day, I definitely have to understand the subtleties.

Shout outs?

Shout out to Momma Zeed!
