I am a young vibrant woman, something which has a lot to do with the woman who has brought me up, my mom.
Among very many things I love listening to music, I treasure solitude and I blog about love, sex and relationships. whispergirlblog.wordpress.com is the link to my blog.
*Q. Which fashion icon do you look up to. Tell us a little about your style too.*
*A* I love simple looks that look sophisticated.
Honestly, anyone who can blend different looks and look fashionable, is a fashion icon to me.
*Q*Where do you get your drive from..you know all these positive vibe, creativity*
*A* My best friend plays a big role in this. We love original looks so we either sketch a design from scratch or buy ideas and mess with the designs until we come up with a different, usually better look.
*Balancing your studies and career must be demanding right,how do you go about that*
I won’t say it’s that hard because I know of people who have to work for sustainability and they still do their class work. I appreciate being able to do both.
*What challenges do you constantly face in the fashion industry*
Clowning of designs. Very many people buy ideas and come up with more affordable, low quality products, something that you cannot control.
*If you were asked to rob a bank with one kitchen utensil what would you use*
That would be a fork.
