DW__When did you started blogging?
In 2010, but all previous 2009 I read other blogs and beared an idea to start my own one.
DW__How did you come up with the idea?

DW__What is fashion for you?
It's a game called "who can make it better". Since the new season's trend come out the runway we all are trying to create some beautiful unique outfits to inspite others and be mentioned as a style icon. I love this kind of competition, it makes me improve.
DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
Day by day it becomes more big. Fashion bloggers sit at the first raws of fashion shows, talk to the designers and inspire people as much as designer's collection itself. May be this is the first time in all fashion era when ordinary people have the same influnce on fashion world as usually designers did. It has a huge opportinities, I think, and now we feel more freedom for self-expression.
DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral ?
Never ) Fashion magazines need to analyze, control and picture street fashion to show all the variaties to the world and fashion bloggers need to be pictured and analyzed. I think there will be some kind of symbiose where both - bloggers and magazine editors will have their own influence area - now they have very different point of view.
