Fashion, for me, has always been about celebrating diversity and individuality through artistic expression. It’s a medium that has such an important cultural impact, tying itself to issues such as gender, race and politics. It’s unapologetically exhibitionist and self-aware, and it’s a world that I love to be a part of.
I started blogging about three years ago after being an avid follower of various social media presences for a while and deciding that I wanted my own space to express my own artistic voice through fashion. My individual style has evolved drastically throughout the years; I now have a carefully curated wardrobe filled with trend-conscious pieces inspired by the catwalk, celebrities, and bloggers alike.
In a world where blogging seems to be something that everyone is doing these days, it’s important now more than ever to stay up-to-date with fashion’s diverse nature
But while I obviously keep up with the trends, I don’t let them dictate my style. I think fashion is about being revolutionary, so I don’t care for the sheep of the industry and make sure that my own personality is at the heart of everything I wear.
In a world where blogging seems to be something that everyone is doing these days, it’s important now more than ever to stay up-to-date with fashion’s diverse nature. I became part of Warwick’s Fashion and Arts society, LINE, to surround myself with like-minded people who all have an undoubtable individuality to them.
Real people encourage real issues to be discussed
LINE is a society that thrives off uniqueness and more importantly, encourages it. Having the opportunity to take an editorial position at the UNDERLINED BLOG meant that I had another platform to voice opinions on fashion and also curate a great team of people to do the same.
The fashion industry is often one that can seem inaccessible, shrouded in a sort of glamourous and trendy elitism. However, I think blogging is something that is steadily making that world become more available. There is a realism in the blogging community that invites anyone to become part of it. It’s this element of blogging that I feel is changing the way we view the fashion industry as a whole; digital influencers have such an impact, utilising their individual voices to create a much more diverse artistic space.
I know for certain that my future career goals concern themselves with fashion editorial writing and directing.
Real people encourage real issues to be discussed, and this is something that we take pride in doing on the UNDERLINED BLOG. Having a space to showcase creative freedom is so important and that’s what blogging provides.
After running my personal blog for a few years and now being part of a blogging team, I know for certain that my future career goals concern themselves with fashion editorial writing and directing. Getting a head start in the industry by involving myself in student-run endeavors has given me that chance to explore my abilities and develop them in my own way, becoming increasingly confident in my own voice as I gain more experience.
