I'm Camille Co, 23 years old from Manila, Philippines.
I started only April of last year.
Prior to starting itscamilleco.com, I already had accounts on Lookbook.nu and Chictopia, both popular online communities for streetstyle/fashion bloggers. Because of this, I usually get featured alongside legit fashion bloggers here in my country. I got to talk to a lot of them and they encouraged me to start my own blog outside of Lookbook.nu and Chictopia. At first I was a little hesitant because I didn't think I had what it takes to maintain a blog. But after some time, I realized that if I start my own blog, I can finally post everything and anything I want! No limitations. I finally gave in.
Itscamilleco.com is mainly my personal style diary. I usually post photos of my outfits and a short description of how they came about. Because I also design, I have posts called behind-the-design as well wherein I blog about my latest design and how it came about. So basically, the content is mostly about fashion, with a few other things in between like beauty, inspiration and other cool finds.
Fashion is an extension of oneself. It's one of the easiest forms of self-expression.
I'd like to say the previous eras, but I really think it's the current period that is most significant. Only because it is now that most women can truly wear anything they want and express themselves freely in the form of fashion. We're making our mark!
I think it's very powerful, inspiring and real. I love how fashion bloggers are giving fashion a new face, making it more approachable and practical.
I don't think so. I think they'll work hand in hand.
My iPhone, oil control film and Goody spin pins.
I get it from all kinds of people and places, from my travels, the Internet--so many really! I think it's because I'm naturally observant so I pay attention to a lot of details and get ideas from the most random things.
Nor really what but more of who--creative people who are really passionate about what they're doing.
I try my best to look presentable whenever I go out. I think as a designer and blogger, it's important to always be at your best because in a way, it's like marketing yourself.
People who changed the game by not being afraid of showing their individuality. They are leaders and not followers.
My ideal male's style is put-together, sophisticated and chic without going overboard. Think GQ! He pays attention to the fit and little details. He'd never be caught dead wearing loose jeans! Haha!
Any of the classic Chanel bags.
Universal, unconfined, vital.
