Neda Azafar - "Myspace is a creative company. The creative team live in a uniform of black jeans and hoodies. I'm in communications, so I'm always on the go - if I dressed super casual it wouldn't work. I really have to exude that I'm on top of it. In my personal life I love flats and bohemian pieces, but at work my clothes are more tailored and structured - it makes you look more organized. And since I'm only 5 feet tall, I'm always in heels. I can't always look like I'm some corporate suit who can't feel my soul, so I'll do bright colours or patterns or jewelry that shows my personality."

Neda Azafar - "I work mostly with men, but I make room for femininity in my wardrobe with fitted pieces. I just own it."
