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. Thats mostly how I came up with my blog I started about a year and half ago.

DW__What is fashion to you?
FASHION is me , it's you and everyone else. It's so many different definition's of FASHION it is really what we make of it.
