Recently spotted at a local fashion event a few weeks ago, Kyle Murray, a 23-year-old Kentucky native, says he loves everything under the arts umbrella. "I sing, dance, step, paint, draw and have a strong love for photography," Murray says. He has also grown into the role of a wardrobe stylist, fashion show producer and blogger (SettingTrendz.com) and even at such a young age, Murray understands the importance of giving back, volunteering for Charlotte's non-profit youth organization Inspire the Fire. He says his personal style is "hard to define because I always tend to dress for the occasion or according to my mood. Some days I care and some days I don't. Ever since I was a kid, [fashion] has allowed me to stand out, be an individual and be seen, noticed and respected by all who come into contact with me. Fashion and style is art, and of course my body is a blank canvas."
