Hello readers : )
This time I decided to do something completely different to what I’ve been doing on this blog so far. This post is my very first INTERVIEW POST. This means that, for this post, I’ve interviewed someone and I want to share the conversation with you guys.
So let me introduce a fellow fashion style blogger, Vinita Mohan. Her page is Vin’s Look Book (www.vinslookbook.com). I started following her blog because we share the same thoughts about fashion.
K: Hi! Could you introduce your blog, Vin’s Look Book, and tell us a little about yourself? What’s your fashion style?
V: Vin’s Look Book strives to give you the best of the fashion world in the most creative way possible.
It aims to inspire you to try something new and provide solutions to common outfit Faux-pas.
Get ready to find outfit inspiration and learn of new trends while playing around with existing trends to make them your own.
Never follow a trend just because it looks good on some one else, follow it because it makes you look good.
Fashion is art you can wear, so create a stunning outfit everyday. 🙂
K: Why did you start a fashion blog?
V: As a child I would make rough sketches of girls in pretty dresses. The models I drew always ended up looking like pudgy rag dolls, they are a bit embarrassing to look at now. But I loved taking the time out to think up of new patterns and designs to put on their dresses.
As I grew up, my sketching skills got better and I wanted an outlet to display my creativity. That’s when I turned to blogging.
K: Who is your inspiration?
V: I believe in setting trends, so I don’t try to copy anyone. However there are some people who’s style I admire.
My fashion icons are Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana and Jessica Alba. This may sound like a strange combination, but I admire women of elegance.
K: What do you think ‘fashion’ is? What do you really believe ‘fashion’ is?
V: Fashion has played an important role in history , culture and heritage. It reflects the progress that man has made from times in memorial. We can learn so much from the wardrobe of our ancestors.
However I believe that fashion is a form of self expression. I love to express myself through my clothes.I have a unique style of dressing, glamorous, but not over done. 🙂
K: What is your opinion on fashion magazines and high-class designers defining a certain look to be ‘fashionable’, and a certain look to be ‘unfashionable’?
V: That is a good question.Honestly, whether something is fashionable or not depends on the person wearing the outfit. The term ‘fashionable’ is highly subjective and can vary from person to person.

K: These days, designers are starting to collaborate with artists to create pieces. What is your opinion on this? What do you think about ‘fashion’ merging with ‘art’?
V: I love to say that fashion is art that you can wear. This is because you can play with colors and textures to create an outfit. So fashion is not merging with art, but rather it is a form of art.
K: You sometimes host giveaways. What do you usually give for ‘giveaway’ events? Do you have any advice for other bloggers(like myself) on how to arrange a ‘giveaway’?
I’m glad you asked. In fact, after hosting successful giveaways, I decided to create a how to guide for other bloggers who would like to host their own giveaways. In this guide I cover every aspect of a giveaway. From selecting a prize to promoting the giveaway and selecting a winner.Be sure to check it out here: http://vinslookbook.com/host-a-successful-giveaway
K: What do you think of Konni Kim Designs? (What you like about this blog, improvements that could be made, etc.)
V: You know what, you have a very professional looking blog, maybe you should be giving me some pointers. 🙂
Keep up the great work, I love your posts so far. You should consider joining bloglovin, you will get more readers from there.
Hmm, as for any other advice, all I can say is keep promoting your blog. That is vital.
K: What advice would you give to bloggers like myself? How can we reach more people?
V: The best advice I can give bloggers is that you must have unique content. The best way to do that is to express your own opinions and ideas in your blog. Never copy another person’s posts.As for reaching more readers, I suggest using your social networking sites like facebook and twitter to interact with your readers. Don’t just post updates of new posts on your blog, give your readers other interesting things to read as well. Perhaps an interesting article or a beautiful photograph. Anything that is relevant to your blog.
K: Last but not least, I want to ask you a totally out-of-the-blue random question! : )
What do you think Victoria’s secret is?
V: Victoria’s Secret is ……. there is no secret. That is the best kind of secret. 😛
That’s the end of the interview!
I’d like to say a huge Thank You to Vinita for answering my questions and helping me put together this post! : )
And another huge Thank You to all of you that support me and Konni Kim Designs. THANK YOU
