Artist Of The Week - Meet Fred aka Aleera

Posted by Mélina Tremblay on

Who are you and what do you do?

Hi, I'm Fred! I'm 29 and I am a queen with many personalities. I like to play with being different when it comes to my art, my gender, and my fantastical whimsical creations.

How has your look developed over the years?

Every year my looks change a lot! I become more and more aware of who she is and what she’s capable of doing. So each year is a journey of self-discovery when it comes to drag. I like to touch different eras and play with fashion and then, mix both of them. Aleera is a tall, loose canon and she loves fashion!

What’s your favorite makeup product you can’t live without?

My favorite makeup product would be a setting spray. My favorite right now is from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I use it on all my looks to set my make-up and to make my looks more alive. I even use it in my daily routine as a man!

Is there any cross over from your daily personality and your drag persona?

Yes, I do mix my alter ego with my daily personnality! I like to play with her confidence, as Fred is much more reserved and shy. Aleera is much more out there, so it's really fun to play with these two personas! I try not to take aleera everywhere as she can be very wild and loose canon.

Who are your biggest influences?

I would say my mom and my friends, as they strive me to become better and better in my craft. They have a true meaning to me! I love that they make me feel alive and validated when it comes to my art.

Any interesting projects on the horizon?

I would like to bring an extra edge to Montreal fashion. I'd love to do new photoshoots, meet new people, work with new people, etc. I would also love to sign with modeling agencies with my drag, to break the Montreal mold and become a great influencer.
