Ami Klinker aka Klinkerbell

Ami Klinker is a fabulous stylist, we recently worked together and it was amazing. Shooting her was also a breeze, she has an ethereal vibe surrounding her that draws you in. Together we walked around Logan Square shooting in random ally ways, crawling into a bush (that was all her) and we ended our lovely afternoon in a perfect little daffodil patch. I can not wait to work with her again.

Tell us about yourself!

I'm Ami. I just moved to Chicago back in August of 2015 from Lexington, Kentucky to go to Columbia College Chicago for fashion business and marketing. I love spending time exploring, eating pizza and petting puppies. 

Does being in Chicago influence your style?

I would say without a doubt yes. When I first moved to Chicago I was channeling a southern 90's grunge style as my boyfriend likes to call it. Since moving to Chicago I wear more urban gear such as athletic shoes, boyfriend jeans and bombers. 

Who is your favorite fashion icon?

I would say I have two: Lua (@luanna90) is my all time style icon without a doubt. But ita Abellan (@sitabellan) is sort of my alter ego when it comes to style.

What is something people don't know about you?

That I've been in the Army  Reserves since 2009.

What three words would you use to describe yourself?

Spontaneous, happy, curious.

Have you been reading anything fun lately?

I just finished Still Life with Woodpecker. It's a pretty strange book, I would highly recommend it!

Where can we see more of your styling?
