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 sixth collaboration is with Karen, a brand new fashion blogger who’s excited to share her bright personality and infectious humour. 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?
Karen: I’ve been an avid reader of style bloggers for years now so there’s definitely a sprinkle of what I’ve read translated into my writing. That being said, I find some bloggers (especially style ones) quite dry so I am very much influenced by print magazines, opinion editorials and situational comedies because I love wit and humour and I think a chatty writer adds a bit more life, personality and spark into blogging. Music lyrics and late night tumblr crawlings really get my creative juices going. As far as favourite blogs go, I love Pink Peonies and Atlantic Pacific for their style, Gary Pepper for photography and Shine By Three for her writing.
Spread: What do you do for a living? Is it something fashion related?
Karen: I’ve actually just graduated from high school so in these four months I really want to concentrate on my blog and build my non-existent brand. What I’ve chosen to study in University will hopefully lead me to what I want to do career-wise, and its definitely not fashion related.
Spread: Where do you see yourself in the future? Is it somewhere fashion related?
Karen: Fashion has been something that I’ve always had an interest in but never considered it to be something that I would pursue professionally in the future because the industry is so saturated, I really don’t know what I could bring to the table. However, I’ve always been a multi-tasked so who knows maybe I can juggle two things at once.
