Westword: Where do you get your fashion inspiration? Amy Burkhardt: I take a behavioral psychology approach to fashion, where if someone compliments me on a certain cut or style, I keep pursuing that. So I let positive reinforcement guide my style.
WW: Where do you like to shop? AB: I guess the better question is "where don't I like to shop?" And that's wherever the clothes are cheap. Anywhere the clothes are poorly constructed, or there's no initiative put into the design. I like clothes with integrity.
WW: What's your favorite article of clothing you own? AB: Some leg warmers I got in Peru.
WW: Why? AB: Because you can't get them here. And they keep my legs warm.
