Few people can take who they are and translate that into fashion without losing their integrity trying to appeal to the masses. When Jennifer Herrema and Volcom got together to collaborate it was a match made in heaven. The rocker chick shared her thoughts on denim and has become my new email friend. I can’t wait to go to an upcoming Volcom event in L.A. and meet her in person. She’s a strong kick-ass woman with a cult following, great sense of humor and has put forth a denim line with Volcom that is a reflection of all that she is. You can see more of their collaboration here.

3). Where do you get your inspiration from?
Arts and crafts and my own style that evolved out of necessity
4). Which style and wash of your jeans are flying out of the shops the quickest at the moment?
