Luanna Interview


DW__What's your name? How old are you and where do you live?
My name is Luanna and I am a 21 year old girl from Peru, living in NY. I study Fashion Merchandising at FIT.

DW__When did you started blogging?
Back in 2008!

DW__How did you come up with the idea?
I usually posted looks on lookbook.nu as a way of sharing my style and views on creativity when creating an outfit. Eventually I realized I needed a better platform to share more about the looks I posted, my DIY projects and little stuff I also wanted to write about but I couldn’t on lookbook because I could only share one picture per outfit. So I just started the blog and posted everything that came to my mind related to fashion.

DW__Could you introduce your blog?
It’s a personal blog  where I share my perspective on fashion and different styling ideas. I love to express myself through clothes and to put together different outfits depending on what I’ve been lately into. One of my favorite things to do is finding vintage garments and modifying them. I love to find different creative ways to pair garments.

DW__What is fashion for you?
It’s a way to express myself and explore my creativity.

DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for women's fashion?
I think right now it’s a very significant period on the fashion world since now girls are gaining more confidence in what they wear. Everything is fashionable as long as there is style on the outfit and as long as one puts effort on innovating or creating something artistic.

DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
I think they make fashion more approachable. Before, girls used to seek ideas of styling their outfits on magazines, but the ideas you get there are less creative or involve getting the latest item or the more expensive one. Bloggers, some of course, share their vision of fashion in a more realistic way. I personally modify my garments and try to make people realize its all about getting creative and getting inspiration from everything you face everyday. You just need to be more open to different ideas and follow your own instinct.

DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral ?
I think fashion magazines will never fade, however they will lose its importance due to this whole globalization of fashion through the web, magazine platforms and other sharing platforms.

DW__3 Indispensable items ?
Leather jacket, nice combat boots or creepers and a pair of denim cut offs!

DW__Where do you get your ideas from?
Everything inspires me at the moment. I literally get a new  outfit idea every hour in a day.. I get a lot of ideas on the internet (tumblr and lookbook),  old movies from the 80s and 90s. I also get a lot of inspiration from music, and books..

DW__How important is it for you to look your best and why?
I just try to feel comfortable with myself, so I put effort on my look because I literally enjoy the process of creating something or putting something together. It is important to look my best for myself.

DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
I guess someone that always finds innovative ways to share their style.

DW__Your ideal female or male would have what style? what would he/she be wearing?
I don’t have any ideal female or male, as long as they are comfortable with themselves and are genuine to their style then that works for me.

DW__If you had to choose one bag what would it be?
A black leather backpack.

DW__3 words to describe fashion?
Perfect fashion for me is :  innovative, everchanging and creative.
