1. Can you tell us about your blog, and what inspired you to start it? What got you inclined towards photography?
Being fashionable and updated with new trends has always interested me, from school days itself. I found myself truly ‘happy’ whenever I used to get new clothes and accessories. Apart from this, as much as I loved to click and capture myself, I found the exact same satisfactory level while clicking for others and capturing their moments, which I chose to convert into my career being a fashion and wedding photographer. I used to share OOTD’s in my social media circles, which earned me a lot of support.
2. Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together or any trademark that you put in your attire?
There are no fashion rules as such, but yes I make sure no matter what I am wearing, either a party wear or a casual, to well co-ordinate it with some accessories which compliments the outfit. The right accessories make every outfit trendy and fashionable.
3. What your next fashion must have that you want in your wardrobe?
4. What is the biggest challenge about fashion blogging?
The biggest challenge would be to introduce new variations every day, inspire others with my fashion sense regularly and also to experiment with my outfits and looks. The worst thing for a fashion blogger would be to become complacent, so I would want to reinvent myself every single day.
5. How many times a week do you post?
At least 1-2 posts every day are what I try, and keep updating my Instagram stories for being connected with my followers. People follow me to get inspiration in fashion and the attire they can adopt. It is their support itself which made me responsible towards them.
6. What’s the biggest tip you have for anyone wanting to start a fashion blog or website?
Biggest tip would be that everyone should create their own sense of uniqueness when it comes to fashion, and never be afraid of experimenting, that brings out the best pretty often. This uniqueness would only inspire others because fashion defines personality.
7. Once you’ve got the followers, how do you maintain them? Does it require a lot of efforts?
I try to be connected with them through my social media posts, Instagram stories and going live sometimes, to converse with them. Another important thing is to keep my Instagram profile interesting, and posting exciting and different things every time which would hopefully inspire them.
