Kyrs on nerve's street style fashion blog

What's your name?
I'm Kyrs.

What are you doing in SoHo?
I'm a jewelry designer and I'm completing some looks for a shoot I have coming up.

What are you wearing?
The shoes are Michael Kors, I got them a few years ago. The skirt is this Australian brand, Style Stalker, and the bag is Dolce & Gabbana.

What about these earrings?
They're from my company. It's a set — one long feather earring and a buffalo head stud.

If you were going out to get laid, what would you wear?
I like to show my legs off, so I'd say definitely a short skirt.

What's a dealbreaker for you when it comes to men's fashion?
This is going sound really snobby.

No, don't worry about it!
An American Eagle graphic tee. Dealbreaker.

Absolutely! Are there any trends coming up that you're into?
I've really been liking all the Native American stuff that's been happening recently. I find a lot of Native American pawn jewelry online.

How did you get into jewelry designing?
I was a sculpture major in college, and jewelry design is just sculpture on a smaller scale.

So was sculpture the way you got into fashion?
I've always been into fashion. My brand is a collaboration with a friend from high school who used to work for Amanda Brooks, who's a style consultant. It's a good marriage between the two.

Do you guys ever compete over who's more stylish?
I'm more stylish! No, she has great style too. I'm definitely the irresponsible one, though, which I attribute to being more creative.

I think a lot of people would agree with that.
