I recently met the lovely Silvia Siantar of poisepolish. at the Audi Fashion Festival. Silvia's blog has been a great source of inspiration to me for two years. Ever since I came across her wonderful posts, which beautifully portray the luxurious world of fashion. Her blog covers every collection through every season, and succinctly critiques celebrity's red-carpet looks for every major event. I was delighted to be featured along with Silvia on MSN Lifestyle. I had the honor to get an exclusive look at Silvia's stylish life, from her most memorable moment in fashion to her summer must-haves. Read on, to get a peek into the fashion blogger's life!
I started blogging as a hobby, as a means to compile my thoughts and comments about fashion. And then it begins to grow into somewhat a 'job', where I started to get attention from the media, designers, etc. And now I think of it as a part of myself in the community. I get referred to as, 'the fashion blogger', and I love the fact that I can inspire people to dress up better, to appreciate fashion better. At one point, I kinda start making money from it. But that wasn't my intention from the start.
2. What are your favorite brands for shopping?
The designer brands, of course I'll go for Christian Louboutin and Brian Atwood. Yes, both are shoe brands. I like Celine and Lanvin too. My daily clothes are from Zara, H&M and ASOS.
Paris and New York.
4. Tips for aspiring fashion bloggers?
Be original. Every now and then you will feel like every other blogger is talking about the same thing, all you have to do is to differentiate yourself.
5. What has been your most memorable experience with fashion?
I think every event I had the opportunity to attend these past 2 years has been amazing, very memorable. Especially when I had to meet Alexa Chung in person at Mulberry, and Nicola Formichetti at the recent AFF.
6. What is your dream internship?
I would love to work with Alber Elbaz for Lanvin and Christian Louboutin.
7. Which S/S '12 trends are your favorite?
The neon colors and digital floral prints!
8. What are your summer must-haves?
All types of funky sunglasses, bright coral nail polish, midi skirts, painted botanical prints on dresses and lastly, neon colored shoes.
Vogue and Bazaar. I alternate between US, UK and Singapore Issues.
10. Summer plans?
Finish school and graduate, and launch my own clothing line in July! Do keep a look out :)
