Recently I had the pleasure of being featured on Lookvine
Lookvine is an Indian based website featuring new trends, fashion and influencers. A bit random however I was happy to answer the questions for the feature. Below is the questions and answers from my interview on the Lookvine site.
1. Tell us about yourself.
My name is Paul Smith and I am a Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger based in London, UK. I believe that style is an extension of your personality and I like to interpret seasonal fashion trends into my own personal style. I enjoy sharing my personal experiences and outfits through my Blog and Instagram.
2. How did you become interested in fashion and blogging?
From a young age, I had always been drawn to how clothing made you feel and how it could make you stand out from the crowd and express your personality. I first became aware of blogging after admiring many other bloggers and avidly following them when blogging was still in its infancy.
3. What is your favorite social media platform?
Instagram is hands down my favorite social media platform. I love how quickly it can change as well as the insights it can give you into peoples lives and their experiences through the story feature.
4. One fashion rule you never break?
Always be comfortable with your style and what you’re wearing.
5. What are your favorite designer and brands you like to shop from?
I enjoy mixing high street and luxury items to create my own personal style. Topman is a favorite as well as the online retailer ASOS. Both keep up with the trends and offer great items at affordable prices. For luxury items, I cannot resist Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Prada. I love luxury brands with a heritage and are still at the forefront of fashion.
6. Describe your style and who influenced you to pursue fashion?
My style reflects how I feel and has changed throughout my life. It has adapted not only to trends but also as I’ve grown and developed as a person. My interest in a fashion career developed when I became aware of great designer such as Vivienne Westwood. Learning of how she pioneered the punk movement really inspired me and I admired how she broke the rules to create a new style movement at the time.
7. One recent trend that you love the most?
I love the recent trend of how everyday items have been turned into luxury goods. Demna Gvasalia, Creative Director of Balenciaga has really pioneered this trend which many designers have followed.
8. What’s the one thing you must have with you all the time?
I hate to admit it but I cannot be without my phone!
9. What advice do you want to give to other bloggers?
Be as true and honest as you can be. This should transpire to your audience who will truly engage and believe in your content.
11. Things you first notice on anyone’s outfit?
12. One thing you buy very often?
Blue light wash jeans are just about the only style of jeans. I wear blue jeans more often than black which is hard to believe.
13. What is your favorite item in your closet right now?
It has to be my black teddy bear Topman peacoat which has been my favorite jacket this season
14.What is your must-have accessory and perfume?
For me, it has to be a pair of Russel and Bromley tasseled loafers and Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir fragrance.
15. What is that one thing you would do if you have all the money and resources to do it?
I would travel in style visiting all the amazing wonders of the world.
