I started blogging my personal style in November of 2011.
DW__How did you come up with the idea?
I was always approached for fashion "advice" and shopping questions so I figured I would start giving some outfit inspiration to friends and colleagues. It ended up becoming something so much more than I could have imagined.
DW__Discribe your personal style in a few words.
Classic with a colorful twist.
DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for men's fashion?
The 1980's were a defining period for menswear worldwide. Both men's and women's fashion have been greatly influenced by the menswear techniques of the 1980's. Oversized silhouettes, pinstripes and dropped crotch defined this colorful era in fashion... something that we've seen have a big influence on designers of today.
DW__In your opinion, what makes fashion an amazing world?
Fashion is much more than just an article of clothing. There is a personality behind every piece and an interesting story waiting to be discovered. Style is something that is very personal and subjective. Every one can have amazing style as long as it is backed by rock-solid confidence in yourself. Fashion allows you to express yourself creatively and being able to see this creativity on a daily basis is so very inspiring.
DW__What is your favorite accessory lately?
I'm a "shoe guy"... and one of my favorite styles has always been a classic brogue.
DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
While Icon status would be lovely, it's not exactly what I'm reaching for. I want to give people a reason to feel great about themselves and realize fashion is so much than being "on trend".
DW__Who is you favourite designer? why?
Both SUNO and Proenza Schouler are at the top of my list right now. Both brands have a definitive attention to detail and create beautiful pattern-mixed silhouettes season after season.
DW__Your ideal female or male would have what style? what would he/she be wearing?
If they have confidence in what they are wearing - they could dress however they like. Although I'm not terribly convinced of the "goth look"... that may be where I draw the line :)
DW__What is your greatest inspiration?
I'm addicted to the natural, carefree style of residents in Nordic countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
DW__How important is it for you to look your best and why?
As a fashion blogger and stylist, I'm being looked at as an "authority" in matters of style. It's like any role you take one, you have to LOOK the part to GET the part. While I'm not as focused on what I'm wearing every hour of every day, it's still extremely important that I look put together.
DW__Websites, blogs, link?
I'm currently posting all of my looks on my blog: www.munrowe.com.
DW__One last/final word?
The pursuit of style as an artistic expression of who you are is a great story. I can't wait to read yours. If any readers ever have style questions, I'm available by email or Twitter (my handle is @justinliv).
