Meet Jason Makohoniuk

Jason Makohoniuk

Age: 22 

Job or avocation: Social media manager, model 

The piece of clothing you couldn’t live without: Shirts or sweatshirts that are three sizes too big. 

The part of your style you’re most known for: My individuality and flair. 

Any fashion regrets? I love taking risks with fashion. If I don’t like a piece, that just gives me an opportunity to alter the garment or style it differently. 

Where you shop: I love thrifting and upcycling in local stores. When buying in stores, I always buy vegan products that are sustainable. The fashion industry produces a lot of waste. 

Hobbies: Going on walks with my dog, Buttercup, modeling, and upcycling my clothing after wearing it.
