Queerty Query: Zaldy

Zaldy

Our editor Bradford has a published piece in this week’s HX Magazine interviewing Gwen Stefani’s right-hand man, Zaldy. Once a club kid, runway model(as a woman!), and downtown club fixture, Zaldy has reinvented himself as a force in the fashion industry. He showed his name line on Saturday and L.A.M.B. is closing fashion week on Friday. Zaldy took time to answer a few of our questions.

1. What is your most prized possession?
Well of course all the right answers are health, friends,family, honor, but as far as a real object I would have to say my Victorian wolf ring.

2. Greatest source of inspiration?
The greatest source of inspiration for me is pop culture: I see tons of movies (Ken Russel, Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, Visconte, Ridley Scott, David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick), listen to loads of music( Siouxsie Sioux, Bauhaus, Antony and the Johnsons, Rufus, Danielle Dax, Can), and buy tons of books(Renzo Piano, Stanley Kubrick, Guy Bourdin,Weiner Werkstat). I have movies going on in the tv room, books laid out in the studio and music all going at the same time.

3. Greatest album ever recorded?
The greatest album ever recorded is impossible to name!

4. Greatest book ever written?
This is near impossible too! this isn’t the greatest book ever written, but I have always loved A Clockwork Orange.

5. Your key to happiness?
What could be more satisfying than working creatively with friends ?
