"I am the singer of a band called The Veldt, and I feel you should 'be' the part, not play it. Playing the part implies it's not real, and everything about me is real."
—Daniel Chavis of The Veldt
"I want my outfit to express the kind of person I am on the inside and how I'm feeling on a certain day. If I'm under the weather I'll wear something a little more bundled up, darker shades. If I'm feeling super-creative and friendly then I'll wear something bright and colorful like this." —Daniel Vanatta of Raleigh
"Style is how willing you are to be different rather than following the trend ... There's this power many perceive in having on a lot of pricey items, but that's just not my motif." —Max (quoted) and Leopoldo Romero of Wilson, N.C.
"Even though I focus on clean, timeless, classic pieces that can interchange, my mood changes daily, so I think that style is an expression of one's personal mood that evolves as we go through life." — Kendra Leonard, owner of Raleigh's The Art of Style
