DW__Qui se cachent derrière ce blog?
Derrière ce blog se cache Keshia, une jeune lilloise, étudiante de 21 ans et Shiia.


DW__Qu'est ce qui vous as incité à vous lancer dans la blogosphère ?
D'autres blog sur skyblog. 


DW__Quand avez-vous commencé et comment l'idée vous est t-elle venue?
Avant blogspot j'avais skyblog, c'était il y a 6/7 ans, j'étais au collège... Je publié des photos de mes amis et de moi, de la mode en général : défilé, pièce coup de cœur... Et au fur et à mesure des looks du jour.


DW__Pour vous, qu'est-ce que la mode?
C'est une façon de s'amuser. De se définir, de se découvrir et aussi de se trouver. Une manière ou la liberté d'expression est infini... 


DW__Que pensez-vous de l'influence des blogueurs dans le monde de la mode?
Rien. Je n'ai pas vraiment de point de vue concernant cette question. Je pense qu'elle doit avoir ses points forts et également ses points faibles, évidemment. 


DW__Pensez-vous qu'un jour ils remplaceront les magazines de mode, ou pensez-vous que cela est éphémère?
Remplacer les magazines de mode par quoi ?! De toute façon je dis non.


DW__Où puisez-vous vos idées? 
Je puise mes idées dans la rue, les magazines, sur le net... Un peu à gauche et droite !


DW__Qui qualifieriez-vous d'icone?
Je n'ai pas d'icône. 


DW__Aujourd'hui c'est shopping. Où allez-vous?
J'irais au centre commercial faire tous les magasins et après je m'attaquerais à la rue piétonne ! 


DW__Votre designer préféré?
Je n'ai pas vraiment de désigner préférer. C'est au feeling selon les collections !


DW__Si vous deviez choisir une seule et unique paire de chaussures, laquelle ce serait?
Je serais la paire Pigalle noir ou beige vernis de Louboutin. 


DW__Votre idéal masculin/féminin aurait quel style? porterait quoi?
Qu'il aime le milieu de la mode, à partir de là je pense que vestimentairement il n'y aura pas plus simple !  


DW__Site(s)? Blog(s)? Autre(s) lien(s)? 


Phrase fétiche? Mot de la fin? 
Bisous :-D !


DW__Who is Negin?
Hi! My name is Negin Mirsalehi, I’m turning 26 this November and I live in The Netherlands. I’m the owner and creative mind of neginmirsalehi.com, which is my personal style platform. Fashion is my biggest passion, and I love to inspire my following (which has grown to almost 2 million) on a daily basis through Instagram and my blog.

DW__When did you started blogging and How did you come up with the idea?
I started blogging two years ago, because I felt that it was the perfect next step after my success on Instagram. When I passed my master degree, I didn’t want to find an average job at an office or something. I really wanted to chase my dreams and be able to live from my passion, which is fashion ! Everyday I’m thankful for my decision.

DW__Could you introduce your blog Neginmirsalehi.com?
Neginmirsalehi.com is my personal style platform where you’ll find fashion, beauty, and lifestyle related articles. My favorite part of the website must be Negin360, which gives you the full story behind every look: locations, background information, outfit details, relevant social posts, and related articles.

DW__What is fashion for you?
Fashion has always been a big passion of mine. As a kid I looked up to my sister, who has beenmy biggest inspiration. I loved dressing up, which still is my favorite part of the day. Style represents who you are, without having to speak. That’s what I love about fashion!

DW__Where do you get your ideas from and how do you define your style?
Inspiration is everywhere! I get inspired by so many different things such as magazines, daily habits, beautiful photos on Instagram, memories, and traveling. I would say my style is feminineand elegant, but with a fun and edgy twist to it.

DW__What is your typical workday?
My days are never the same: they’re full of meetings, shoots, working on blog posts, and traveling. And I enjoy every second of it!

DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
I think blogs are a great addition to the fashion world in general. It’s a nice way for brands to present themselves, and I love how you can get inspiration on a whole new level: through websites, blogs, and social media. It’s so much more dynamic and approachable.

DW__What’s your favorite thing about blogging?
I love that I’m able to inspire my readers with beautiful content of good quality on a daily basis. Their support always keeps me going, makes me want to improve my work, and encourages me to try out new things.

DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
I would say Olivia Palermo, because she always surprises me with her looks. Olivia has a great sense of style and she’s always on point!

DW__If you had to choose only one pair of shoes what would it be?
That’s a tough question you got there! I think I would go for my black ankle boots, as they go with almost every outfit. Plus, they have a sophisticated and edgy feel while wearing really comfortable at the same time.

DW__3 Indispensable items?
This upcoming winter it must be the turtleneck sweater, a pair of seventies over the knee boots, and chic culottes (cropped wide leg pants). Those items really stood out to me at the fashion weeks in New York and Milan!

DW__3 favorite places in your city?
Vondelpark, which is the most beautiful park in Amsterdam – perfect for a walk or to sit down and relax for a while. If you want to go shopping I’d recommend Negen Straatjes: a lovely area full of amazing boutiques. And De Pijp is a great neighborhood, you’ll find lots of nice restaurants out there!

DW__3 words to describe fashion?
Fashion to me is inspiring, a way to express yourself, and never ending.

DW__What are your future projects?
I’m really looking forward to Miami Design Week, which is in December. And we’re also heading to Paris for a collaboration with a fashion house I’m very passionate about. I’m really excited for these two things! Can’t wait to share more soon.

DW__When did you start blogging and how did you come up with the idea?
I have always been a lover of fashion and creativity and plus people are always asking question about fashion, from what to wear, where I got this or that and also where to shop etc. I thought why not create a little blog while I'm in New York and document my life and everything else.

DW__Who is Tamara?
I am Tamara, full time fashion blogger at theglamandglitter.com
I am not that good at talking about myself, but I love fashion and I share my outfits on the blog daily with girls around the world. By diploma I am a pharmacist, but one that is more dedicated to fashion and enjoying life, than anything else.


DW__When did you started blogging and How did you come up with the idea?
I was in university when I decided I wanted to create a little online fashion community where I will be able to meet other girls interested in fashion and share ideas and outfits with them. This was over 4 years ago and it was the best decision of my life.


DW__Could you introduce your blog?
My blog is an online corner for fashion, beauty and inspiration. Place where I like to share what I love, wear and exchange ideas with my readers.


DW__What is fashion for you?
Fashion is form of art. Just like a painter decides which colours to use and what type of paint, thats how we decide what colours to put on the day, depending on the mood, or event, materials, length, its all a game and a creative process.


DW__Where do you get your ideas from and How do you define your style?
My style is mix of classic and trend always with a bit of colour.I like feminine look, and even if I wear ripped boyfriend jeans I would add something feminine to it.


DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for women's fashion?
Its hard for me to decide which period is most significant, but this period is for sure most comfortable, and most amazing because there are no rules. I find myself so lucky to live in this era.


DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
Fashion blogging is a phenomenon that is changing the industry, marketing, design and many other aspects of clothes making and selling. Its just incredible to imagine what kind of influence bloggers have, but I am very grateful to have it as a job, because I love it so much.


DW__Do you believe that one day they will  replace a fashion magazine, or do you think it's just a fleeting? What is the future of fashion blogging?
I know that many blogs have huge reach, bigger than most magazines, not even to mention the fast that they are free. There will always be space for both in the industry, print is huge, because people like to have magazine in their hands to flick through and put on the coffee table. Blogs will be something you go through on your phone or tablet in the bed or when online shopping.


DW__What is your greatest inspiration?
I think my goals. I have many goals, and dreams that are rely big. They inspire me and motivate me to work as hard as possible. Besides that I get fashion inspiration everywhere i look, on the streets, magazines, fashion blogs...


DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
I don't believe in icons as such, but I think it should be someone who is giving a good example not only on how to look good, but also how to feel good in your own skin and how to be amazing person not just a beautiful one.


DW__Your ideal female or male would have what style? what would he/she be wearing?
Trendy, classy and interesting. I love classy women, specially if they are clever and classy its a perfect match. I really love Grace Kelly type of woman, sophisticated yet so much more than an icon.


DW__If you had to choose only one pair of shoes what would it be?
I think Valentino rock studs, they are in beige and go with absolutely everything.


DW__3 Indispensable items?
Currently if we are talking fashion it would be: Ripped boyfriend jeans, printed jacket and Chanel Boy bag.

Essentially, fashion is fun. It should be fun - the combination of fun and confidence can be unstoppable.  


DW__Where do you get your ideas from and How do you define your style?
I get my ideas from vintage styles and of course fellow bloggers. Although I do have an odd sense of style - it's always a little different. At the moment I really like draped, floaty styles like bohemian and 70s designs.


DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for women's fashion?
I personally really enjoy 70s fashion. 


DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
 I think it's excellent as we get to see real girls and guys with real stories with their own personal style and watch how they interpret current trends - making it more accessible to the public (obviously with the help of social media such as Instagram - love it!)

Follow your instincts.



DW__Who is Jessica? 
Hi, I’m Jessica from NYC. I grew up in China, and I think I had a questionable fashion sense growing up. There wasn't any social media back then, and very few places to look for inspiration. I wasn't really exposed to the creative world of fashion until I found blogs. Fashion blogs changed the way people dress and shop. It certainly changed me. I instantly fell in love with how personal and relatable blogs were. 


DW__When did you started blogging and How did you come up with the idea?
I started blogging a month ago. My friends have been encouraging me to start a blog for a long time. It took me a while to muster the courage to pursue my passion. There's a lot of hesitations and fears, of course. It's only natural to feel that way when you are going after something that's really important to you. Blogs are very personal, and I am glad I am getting the chance to share a piece of myself with the world.


DW__Could you introduce your blog?
My blog is called NotJessFashion. It's where I chronicle my life. I love dressing up and of course, the blog centers on that. But since I also love traveling, exploring new places, and discovering hidden gems, there are lot of scenery featured on the blog as well. I'd like to think my blog serves as an escape from daily life, not just for me but for my readers too.


DW__What is fashion for you?
Fashion is a way for me to express myself. I don't confine myself to dressing one specific way. I love blending different influences together, and I love getting to know myself through fashion.


DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for women's fashion?
I would say the 90s. It was grungy, athletic-inspired, and androgynous. There were a lot of strong women in that decade, and it is an overlooked decade in my opinion.


DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
I think it's great. Fashion is always changing, and bloggers definitely contribute to that. Every blogger has a definite background, different personality, different view on fashion, which makes fashion today even more interesting. Fashion bloggers are also more relatable since they usually mix high-end with high street brands, it makes their looks more accessible to readers.


DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral? What's the future of fashion blogs?
I think that as long as people have something inside them to express there will be fashion blogs. I don't think that they will replace fashion magazines though. Not completely, since fashion magazines are on a lot more larger scale. It's not just about one person's opinion.


What is your greatest inspiration?
Nature, travel, and all things colorful.


DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
Anyone embraces who they are and creatively expresses it through fashion is an icon.


DW__Your ideal female or male would have what style? what would he/she be wearing?
I do not impose my idea of fashion on anyone else, but I guess I wouldn't mind if he dressed like Adam Gallagher.


DW__If you had to choose only one pair of shoes what would it be?
Saint Laurent's “Janis” Mary Jane Pumps. They are timeless, a must-have in any wardrobe.


DW__3 Indispensable items?
Chanel classic flap bag, Boyfriend Jeans, and a best friend to conquer the world with.


DW__3 favorite places in NYC? (restaurant etc...)
Hello, you have found the right person for the job. Aire Ancient Baths for relaxation, Narcissa for some farm to table amazing goodness, Queen of the Night for a bizarre and unforgetable dinner theater experience.


DW__3 words to describe fashion?
Experimental, expressive, edgy.


DW__Websites? blogs? other links?
My go-to blog for inspiration is always Garypeppergirl. I'm also very loyal to Rumi from FashionToast. FashionToast was the first fashion blog I read, and boy was I hooked. Last but not least, I heard NotJessFashion is up and coming, so be sure to check it out. Wink Wink.


DW__One last/final word?
Live your dream and dream big!

DW__Who is Anouk? You are also the founder of Creators of Desire, tell us more about it.
I'm Anouk Bos, dutch fashion internet entrepreneur and founder of Creatorsofdesire.com. After 2,5 years I have decided to open my own personal style blog on Creatorsofdesire.com. People now often call me fashion blogger, but I see myself as digital fashion stategist. The blog is just a side step for me. We needed a new fashion blogger and I thought why not do it myself? I have a closet full of clothes and I love fashion. That's when Anouk Yve the blog was born. Yve is my second name. I live in England with my footballer husband, but travel the world for my business and job. My life is full of contrast and I like it this way. 


DW__When did you started blogging and How did you come up with the idea?
I founded Creatorsofdesire.com in 2011, because there wasn't something like a blog network in The Netherlands yet. Back then you already had some very popular bloggers and some very talented upcoming bloggers. I decided to unite the very talented upcoming bloggers because they were the ones in need for a good push. Our motto is: together we're stronger. We've a wider reach and because of that we can serve the advertisers better. Creatorsofdesire.com now reaches over 100.000 unique visitors and over 700.000 monthly hits. Personal style is our niche, although we try to become more and more personal towards other subjects too. Lifestyle, health. Everything that has to do with a stylish lifestyle basically. We aim to be your online friend by talking about stories from a personal perspective. Whether it's how you style our summer wardrobe to how to get make-up stains out of your crisp white blouse. 


DW__What is fashion for you?
Fashion is not that important to me. Style is. I love to buy clothes don't get me wrong but I rather look at how those clothes add to my wardrobe, sourcing timeless pieces, than hopping from trend to trend. Every season I have one or two key items where I build my look around. Sometimes I buy things that I start wearing seasons after. Than you know it was a good buy after all, because it fits my personality rather than the trend. 


DW__Anouk, I'm in love with your style, very inspiring, you wear simple clothes but you mix them so well! Where do you get your ideas from and How do you define your style?
Aww thanks that is so nice of you. To be honest: the best outfits are the ones I've put together in front of the mirror without being inspired by magazines/blogs/pinterest. I mix and match old and new and try to layer. I often choose a simple look but I always make it unexpected by adding some extra ingredients. 


DW__What do you like the most in being a fashion blogger?
I'm not a fashion blogger although I have a fashion blog. 
60 hours a week I'm a digital fashion strategist. Closing deals and playing the business women
10 hours a week I blog.


DW__According to you what is the future of fashion blogs?
Fashion bloggers are becoming more professional to the point they loose their personal touch and become little online magazines, not so much different to print magazines. 
In a way I support that, but I would hate to see the personal touch go away. Some bloggers are already super editorial focused. I think that's taking away the charm of blogging. I want to see you and not a better photoshopped (in many ways) version of you. Bloggers have become smart, but they don't realize by playing it smart they all look the same. Niche blogs have the feature. 


DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
It's a circle. Fashion bloggers inspire fashion designers and vice versa. They need each other: to tell their story and beyond. Bloggers can make or break a brand. You cannot ignore them. Their voice is strong and their reach wide. 


DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral? What's the future of fashion blogs?
Fashion magazines will be there, it's not the end of fashion magazines. I think bloggers and fashion magazines can help each other by sharing content en creating content vice versa. 


DW__What is your greatest inspiration?
I always struggle with this question. Because inspiration is in everything. I'm very connected to the world around me. Not only online but often offline. I have my eyes and ears wide open. Right there lies my inspiration. 


DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
For me real icons are people that can do it different. They see the world different, they act different, they look for the new/or the new within the old. In the fashion world you have a few designers that are those icons, the rest are followers and less interesting. Pioneers are icons, the ones who set the trend. Jeremy Scott for Moschino (-although I don't like the style) is an icon because he makes his collection available right after the show. It's unconventional and I like that. Tom Ford is an Icon because he experiments with his fashion shows. One year with public, the other year without etc. You get my point right? 


DW__If you had to choose only one bag, what would it be?
My Saint Laurent Cassandra bag of course!


DW__3 words to describe fashion?
Tired, unresistible, image (as in imago).


DW__Websites? blogs? other links?
Instagram ;-) 


DW__One last/final word?
Be nice, you always meet each other twice.




DW__Who is Stephanie?
I'm a 21 year old blogger (obviously!), freelance writer and journalism student - needless to say I'm also very tired. I'm originally from Cornwall in the UK, but right now I'm living in London.


DW__When did you started blogging and How did you come up with the idea?
I've only actually been blogging for around a year, but I was really active/addicted to Tumblr for years. I made some great contacts through Tumblr which led me to creating my blog!


DW__Could you introduce your blog? 
Cocochic is generally a site that showcases my own personal style. I tend to ramble on a lot about my day and what I'm up to - it's basically a digital diary where I express my love for shoes and my lack of sleep.


DW__What is fashion for you?
Without sounding cliche, I think fashion is what you make it. Obviously fashion is technically all about the trends and the meanings behind collections, but for me I just like to have fun with it. There's definitely a lot more to life than fashion, but let's face it, life would suck without it.


DW__Where do you get your ideas from and How do you define your style?
My posts are generally made on a whim. I'll wake up, get dressed, and if I happen to get some outfit pictures taken that day then that's what will go up. Sometimes I'll also do some collaborations with some websites which obviously dictates a few posts, but other than that most of them are just a few snaps of me in something leather and a few paragraphs of me nattering on!


DW__What do you like the most in being a fashion blogger?
It's given me the chance to do a lot of things that I wouldn't otherwise be able to do. I've been able to visit some of the craziest of places and meet some seriously inspiring people. I sometimes forget how lucky I am. I also love that (since becoming my full-time job) blogging has allowed me to spend more time doing the things I love, instead of working in a 9-5 job that I'm unhappy in. I 'm completely in control of what I do, which I think is a luxury in itself.


DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
I think the lines are blurred these days. A few years ago bloggers were considered the new tastemakers, but now, so many bloggers are working with companies and generally making a business out of themselves that it's hard to see the wood from the trees, so to speak. I think the main purpose for bloggers these days is an escape from every day life, and a constant form of outfit inspiration. It's a lot easier to get dressed in the morning when you can just copy someone's look off a website.


DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral? According to you what is the future of fashion blogs?
I think some magazines will be around forever. We're in a digital age but that doesn't mean people still don't prefer to read hard copies as opposed to pictures on the internet. For me, I know I'll always choose magazines over the digital apps because I keep them as collectors items in a sense - then again I'm also an avid Kindle-er. I'm certain some physical magazines and newspapers will die out over time, but I can't see them disappearing completely any time soon (at least I hope not, for the sake of my own magazine-addiction).


DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
Originally I would have listed off a selection of editors, journalists and bloggers that I adored, but lately I've had some form of epiphany/I grew up, and have come to terms with the fact that generally anyone can be an icon. I'm not interested in Beyonce or Lady Gaga or Kim K (sorry!), now I just find regular, day to day people inspiring in so many different ways.


DW__What is your greatest inspiration?
I guess I answered that in the last question! In terms of more superficial things though, I've lately really gotten into architecture and property development. A new career objective maybe?


DW__3 Indispensable items?
My cats, a good leather jacket and my Macbook (for Candy Crush purposes).


DW__3 words to describe fashion?
Non-stop, crazy, addictive.


DW__Websites? blogs? other links?
Blogs that I check everyday are:


DW__One last/final word?
Don't take things too seriously!
