Sam Rocker: Rockin’ the tomboy style

Sam Rocker’s style matches her name: rock. To the front-woman of deathcore band No Forever, “rock style” means wearing T-shirts, jeans, big watches and any other rocking jewellery. Her hair is quite short compared to most girls and she describes herself as a tomboy. “The way I dress really shows who I am, and I feel warm by doing so,” the 22-year-old told LIFT.

Even though she feels best when dressing her style, many Cambodians frown on Sam fashion choices, as girls dressing like boys is still uncommon in the Kingdom.

“Some people will like you, some people will not like you, but I still dress and look the way I want because I really do not care about what people say, especially those I don’t even know. It is my right to dress how I want and I just want to show who I am by doing so.”

Along with the classic rock ‘n’ roll concepts behind her style, she says there is also a unique element in there which she didn’t copy from anyone.

“I don’t have to follow the style of a superstar,” she says.

She ends with a call to all young people: “Please follow what you like and do it the way you want, not because you want to become famous but because it is you.”
