Questions From the Model/Blogger:

To start, would you like to tell us what your blog is about in your own words?

Hello my blog is a fashion blog in where I talk about fashion news, share my fashion tips, outfits and inspiration. Also I aim to point out new designers by wearing their clothes and shoot them in beautiful places especially in Paris because this is where i currently live.

How did you get started with this blog?

 

I’ve always wanted to have a fashion blog and at the beginning of the year I finally started it.

How have you managed to keep up the creativity with your blog? 

 

I think I manage to keep the creativity by working with different designers, photographers and make-up artist. Indeed each person has its own creativity taste and when we mix it together it always comes to a wonderful and different result each time that I couldn’t do all by myself.

What are some of the perks of writing a fashion blog? The cons?

I would say that perks are that I can share my passion for fashion with others. I really like posting new article, taking pictures for it, meeting new people…  I don’t see any cons right now. I love everything in it!

Where do you see the future of your blog going? Or even blogging in general?

 

I hope I’ll keep on blogging for a long time. I want to improve my blog meeting new people and why not find a career opportunity with it as I want to work in fashion industry.

Questions:

To start, would you like to tell us what your blog is about in your own words?

My blog is something of a creative outlet wherein I get to share my interests, specifically in fashion. I mainly posts about my personal style and tidbits of my daily life however recently I’ve also started incorporating articles about current trends and latest fashion whatnots.

How did you get started with this blog/modelling?

At one point I felt so depressed not having been able to join a social network site called Lookbook.nu. You probably know it’s a site where you can share your outfits though at the time, it was by invitation only. Instead of giving up, I decided that to create my own lookbook instead, so I did and my blog was born. Fashion blogging was then a foreign word to me. I knew about blogging but never did I realize there’s actually an internet full of fashion bloggers. And so when I discovered them, I was even more inspired to continue my little experiment and that’s when I really took it seriously.

How have you managed to keep up the creativity with your blog?

From time to time, I fall off the radar. It’s difficult with especially since I have to juggle blogging along with my personal life, school or work, love life. Sometimes I just lose motivation. When that happens, what I do is take moment and look back at the hard work I’ve put myself to achieve the blog that I have right now. I try to remember why I started it in the first place. Then I try to look for things to inspire me – travel, shopping, art, music, new trends, anything. And then I start to get back on track. It’s a vicious cycle.

What are some of the perks of writing a fashion blog? The cons?

One of the perks of course is receiving free stuff! I have received quite a lot of free clothes from sponsors since I started blogging and that’s one of the biggest perks. The second perk is being able to attend fashion shows and pre/post-part for free). I was able to go to Hong Kong Fashion week without much trouble but a mention of “I’m a fashion blogger” and to me, that kind of experience is priceless. The third perk is getting to know people and make new friends online through the blog. You just connect because you know you have a lot in common, and I love it!

As for the cons, I found that the most difficult thing in running a blog is that it takes a lot out of your energy, time, effort, and money. At least in my experience, that is. It’s not an easy job and not many people understand what you do.

Where do you see the future of your blog going? Or even blogging in general?

I think that blogging in general is having its current moment – just like any trend. But there are so many possibilities that I can’t foresee what will be of it in the future. It could wane out or it could take over the place of magazines as some would think. I can’t really tell. Personally, I don’t see myself becoming a super blogger like Rumi Neely or Andy Torres because, let’s be realistic, I’m based nowhere near any fashion capital and there’s a lot of competition out there that brands would rather prefer to work with. But I do see branching out as a possibility – opening an online store, perhaps? Or creating a styling portfolio out of my blog for freelance styling jobs? Well, that’s how I see it.
