DW__What's your name? How old are you and where do you live?
I am Olga Choi, 29, live in South Korea.


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?
Once at 2009 I googled my new Gucci Indy bag and find a photo of Chiara Ferragni. I was just mesmerised by her blog and tryed to find another fashion bloggers. That time there was just a few of them and I thought that my own blog will be a good addition.


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.

DW__Websites? blogs? other links?



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.

Kathleen Murillo, 21, Berkeley, California.


DW__When did you started blogging?
I started about 1 year and a half ago in Summer of 2010.


DW__How did you come up with the idea?
Inspirafashion is about mixing both inspiration and fashion together.  I thought the idea was perfect to express both important aspects of fashion into one place people can visit and find my personal style along with what inspires me.


DW__What does fashion mean to you?
It means to bring together creativity and art through styling, photographing, or designing clothes.  It's a way to also build confidence and poise. It's a passion.


DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for women's fashion?
I believe every era is great and unique in their own way, but depends on preference. I truly admire the 1940's fashion and how carefree and free flowing every clothing item is.


DW__In your opinion, what makes fashion an amazing world?
The people who are inspired by it and as a result end up creating out of what seems ordinary at first, something brilliant and beautiful. For example, the amazing designer Alexander McQueen -- his out of this world designs came from being inspired by others or things around him. This type of growth and process is what interests me about fashion.


DW__Where do you get your ideas from?
I go on fashion blogs all the time and especially just street style is inspiring. Recently, I found the site Pinterest to be a great place to generate ideas by pinning pictures from all over the web.


DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
Anyone who is genuine, passionate, an driven about what they're happy doing or wanting to pursue.


DW__Your ideal female or male would have what style? what would he/she be wearing?
They'd have a classic effortless style.  I really admire looks that look thrown together last minute but end up looking perfect.  He or she would be wearing maybe a striped long sleeve top with a belt and cool vintage worn out jeans and loafers.


DW__A fashion advice?
Dress not to impress, dress for yourself.  Walk out of the house with confidence about what you're wearing.


DW__What is your favorite accessory lately?
I love wearing bracelets and stacking them all together.  They turn out to be a great piece of art on your arm. ;)


DW__Who is you favourite designer? why?
I adore Helmut Lang, his designs are very simple and minimalistic and pays attention to shapes and form rather than color.  I think it's interesting also the type of fabrics he uses, mesh or jersey.


DW__Websites? blogs? other links?
Refinery 29, Whowhatwear, just a few sites I get my inspiration from.  Pinterest is definitely up there now too.  Blogs, I have too many to name, but to name a few of my favorites: Sincerely Jules, Song of Style, This Time Tomorrow, Columbine and Gary Pepper Vintage.  Chictopia.com is an amazing social media networking site for fashion, great way to connect with other bloggers and where I first started! :)
