The Queer Eye star believes people in the style world disapprove of him because he doesn’t live by trends or worry about his outfits being last season. But he doesn't care.
"Believe me, just because I have fame and I have wealth, I still feel sometimes like the fashion industry thinks there are certain people who aren’t right for it," the stylist tells Grazia UK.
And adds: "But do I live by trends? Do I change my clothes every three months and not wear things any more because they were ‘last season’? Absolutely not."
Tan believes that because of this, he is "excluded" from the fashion industry. However, he insists he doesn't mind as he cares more about making himself feel good.
"I’m positive that I’m excluded from the fashion industry because of that, but I don't care.
"I care so much more about style for myself, making myself feel good, and pushing that agenda forward onto other people who feel like they’re excluded from the fashion industry."
