“AS A MODEL YOU ARE AN LIVING ART” *FXSHNJUNKE SPOTLIGHT* FT AERIN CREER

In Today’s Fxshnjunke Spotlight, we caught up with this young model from the Bay Area who we see almost half of her pictures on the explore page so we had to hit her up so we can get to know her a little bit more . Our girl Aerin Creer talks with us about how her modeling career started, one of her secret places to shop and how she deals with the hate !

 I love painting. – Aerin

Dasia: I see you all over IG girl lol ! Why do you think there’s 100K + people so interested in following your journey?

Aerin: I’m not entirely sure why people follow me but I definitely think it’s cool. I guess they just like seeming something outside the norm trying to model? Maybe they like the way I dress.

Dasia: How long have you been modeling ?

Aerin: All my life I’ve been modeling but I recently started taking modeling seriously as my career in the second half of 2016.

Dasia: What do you to like about modeling ?

Aerin: I like helping people take their abstract ideas and turning them into something tangible. As a model you’re living art.


Dasia: What do you think you are most known for ?

Aerin: Hmm, that’s a good question. I never thought about it. Maybe I’m most known for that pink hair I had, or even those twists I had in June of 2016.

Dasia: Omg you just graduated congrats ! What are your plans for 2017 ?

Aerin: I have lots of plans but sometimes I think you can jinx them if you speak to openly about them. Just know I have some big projects and collaborations in store.

Dasia: You have been apart of many collaborations with so many brands, which one is your favorite ?

Aerin: I still love DollsKill to this day. Infinite SF is always fun too!


Dasia: Do you ever think that you will create your own brand apparel ?

Aerin: Maybe once I’m more established. While collaborating with companies I’ve learned that creating your own, unique, and innovative designs is no simple feature and requires 100% dedication.

Dasia: Your style is so bomb! and I love seeing you serve looks. How would you describe your style  ?

Aerin: My style is all over the place –haha. I have no idea how I would describe it. One day you’ll see me in a pink fur jacket and the next day I’ll look like someone’s little brother with a huge baggy look.

Dasia: Where are your go to places to shop ?

Aerin: I can’t tell all the secrets now can I? I’ll say one. I get all my street wear from Infinite SF. Expensive but worth it.

Dasia: If you could model for any brand who would it be ?

Aerin: I love the way Target curates all their ads so I’d love to be apart of that, believe it or not. I love Target. Unif is also on my list!

Dasia: Girl what ! Target is my STORE ! lol . So of course there’s is going to be haters everywhere you go, how do you deal with negativity ?


Aerin: I don’t deal with negativity. I’m a blockerista and I typically just block people before they get a chance to bother me. Their opinion of me isn’t my business so if it’s a bad one I’ll just block it so you can continue to talk and I won’t be bothered.

Dasia: Have you heard of Fxshnjunke before ? If not, what are your thoughts ?

Aerin: I was tagged in a few posts beforehand but never really looked into until now. The pages is put together really well. You all are so professional!

Dasia: Awe thanks love ! Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years ?

Aerin: I see myself happy. Wherever that may take me is unknown. I hope I’m still happy with my career in 2022!
