Meet the Team: Blake Caple
Name: Blake Caple
Where are you from?
Raised in New Hampshire but school & adulthood here in Baltimore.
What do you do with DifferentRegard?
I do marketing, notably the social media, website, and this blog.
What part of your position is most challenging?
I actually studied dance, business, and arts administration in school so while I have some marketing experience I am very much learning on the fly which is hard when you're a perfectionist.
And most enjoyable?
I love being a part of a small team where everyone is so intertwined in what everyone else is doing. I interact with everyone every day so I love getting to be creative and being around creativity.
What interests you about fashion?
I've always dressed a little bit odd and it took me a long time to become comfortable in my own skin and since then I've found a lot of freedom in standing out, whether that be by wearing crazy outfits or by being the nicest dressed in the room. I think what you wear is very telling about who you are as a person but also you can create your image when meeting stranger so I love seeing how people create their own image.
How did your love of fashion/ designing develop?
I would always watch red carpet events before award shows on tv and for some reason, I was so fascinated with the outfits that I would start trying to replicate the themes (flashback to when I wore an all-white outfit consisting of sweatpants and a hoodie, yikes). Soon I developed a taste and reasoning for liking or disliking things and I began to care more and more about what I was wearing and how I presenting myself. My mindset is "you are what you let others think you are" so I move forward wearing high-quality loud clothing so everyone else can get ready for me.
What else do you do besides working here?
I'm currently working at the Orangetheory Fitness in Hunt Valley and in the box office at Creative Alliance in Highlandtown.
What is your favorite article of clothing and why?
I have this amazing green pull-over jacket that was my dads from the 80's. I stole it from him when I was younger and it's my absolute favorite to travel with. It's come with me to over 20 countries.
If you had to describe your style in less than five words how would you?
One word: Athleisure.
