At Spread, we thrive on connecting fashion lovers with their favourite brands. At the same time, we’re a social community that offers creative people a platform to meet, collaborate and inspire one another through the pursuit of new and innovating products and ideas.
It’s our goal to build on this camaraderie and inspire one another to support fellow fashion lovers! In order to achieve this, we’ve decided to collaborate with some of our followers. We want to learn more about you; what inspires you; what you love and where you see yourself in the fashion world.
Our first collaboration is with Caroline Renae Olson, a fashion/lifestyle blogger from New York City. I was lucky enough to interview this bright young woman and gain some insight into her passion for fashion!
Spread: What/who inspires you in your writing?
Caroline: I’m fortunate to live in New York City, which is my main source of inspiration. Wall murals, fashion shows, vintage shops, even just the people on the street inspire me. I can spend hours in Barney’s or Bergdorf Goodman just admiring the garments and particularly the handbags. I also love looking at other blogs and apps like Spread for inspiration.
Spread: What do you do for a living? Is it something fashion related?
Caroline: In the past, I’ve managed a children’s salon/spa/boutique and had an online boutique of my own. However, I’m currently studying Fashion Merchandising Management at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Spread: Where do you see yourself in the future? Is it somewhere fashion related?
Caroline: Yes, I do intend for my future pursuits to involve fashion. It’s truly what I love to do, and I have a few business plans in the making, which I plan to pursue after I graduate from FIT.
