"I saw all these FUBU kids, and I was like, I want everything FUBU," Hanna Beth says. I really wanted my pants super tight so I’d sew them all, because skinny jeans weren’t a thing yet. Obviously I know who I am now more, compared to when I was young and 'so confused,' but I love experimenting with different looks still, because I never know how I’m going to wake up and feel. The label "gothic" has been thrown around a lot in describing her, something Hanna herself now rejects.
