Give us a little introduction about yourself; like who are you, what’s your personality, where do you live, what do you do, etc.

My name is Veronika and I am the blogger behind Venkavision. I am a recent fashion marketing graduate from London but originally I am from Budapest, Hungary. My blog is a personal style blog but I also blog about trends and other fashion advice.

Can you give us three words to describe your style?

This is the most difficult question to answer, because I always go with my feelings.  Dressing for me is an instinct I can’t analyze.

Since when did you know that you want to work in fashion? Has it always been a life-long dream to be a fashion blogger/stylist/personal shopper?

I have always loved fashion. I used to sew my Barbie’s clothes. I always liked it but for long I prepared for a career in economics. It was a sudden decision to change and study fashion marketing instead. Then over the years I realized what my strengths were within fashion, like giving advice and analyzing trends.

Who takes your photos? Do you take your own pictures or hire a photographer?

Depends on where I am, but mainly it’s my London flatmate and friend of 22 years, Judit (http://bigcitylifebyjucy.blogspot.co.uk/). Judit studies photography so it’s a good practice for her too. When I travel I look for new photographers and then work with them. My recent favorites were BenedekVarga (http://www.vargabenedek.hu/) &BarbiVasonyi.

Who is your fashion inspiration and what are your favorite fashion brands?

I can’t name one person, I love looking at street style in general for inspiration. I look anywhere on the internet and if I like a detail I will try to incorporate it into my own looks. I love young designer brands the most because they have an edge and something very new and unique about them like Nubu, but I love well established luxury brands like GiambattistaValli& Tom Ford because of their beautifully crafted quality pieces. I also love the new t-shirt brands (http://venkavision.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/t-shirts.html) that have gained much attention over the past couple of years.

You’ve studied in England for quite a while. Are there any British people that you were inspired by?

I’ve been living in London for five years and it is inspiring in itself, especially having worked in many famous fashion companies. I would suggest people looking for inspiration in London, to go to fashion boutiques and look at the stylists/sales people. I love how stylists at Browns Boutique (http://www.brownsfashion.com/) dress.

Which fashion item that suits you the most?

Because I am shorter I think that heels, pointy toes and high-waist items fit me the best!

If you could travel through time, which era of time would you want to go?

My favorite time in fashion is end of 90s and early 2000s right now but I lived in those years so luckily I don’t need to go back. I would rather travel to the future!

Do you have any goals you want to accomplish in the near future

I have so many dreams and goals but I’d like to keep them in secret 😉

Please give us some advice to WhatIWear members about fashion 🙂

My advice for WhatIWear members is to dress for their body and shape, to know what their best features are and to accentuate only those, to always add a little twist: either by adding a color or a print, mixing in a new  material or anything small but unexpected like a hat or gloves.We told you, she’s a lovely girl J and we just fell more in love with her. So, be sure to check her Venkavision blog, follow and +wow her looks at her WhatIWear profile.

Fashion nowadays has a very large meaning for some of us, including me and also you. Moreover, our technology let us to spread our taste in fashion by sharing via blog or other social media, like our favorite page, Whatiwear! Some of fashion lover maybe want to have their own blog which that can freely post everything related or not with fashion. No matter how special their style if people cannot see widely your style gonna be useless. That’s why fashion blogger is needed to be creating.

 

Here, I wanna share with you how to be a fashion blogger and what’s the benefit of it. Lemme start with how to make your own fashion blog.

 

Step 1: Choosing a name

After you registered your name, the first thing you have to make is decide the name that can be related into your name, your style interest, your favorite model or even your inspiration. It’s like you are a new parent who have a mission to name your future child. One thing you must know, with a vast number of fashion blogs online, yours must be devastating and different so people will curios to find out what story behind the name.

 

Step 2: Writing your first blog post

When you already have a title and customized your blog, now is time to post your first blog post. It is important to decide whether you want to straight post your look or you starting with some introducing about yourself, your inspiration, things that you love and many more. After posting, make sure that you linked your blog post into your social media.

 

Step 3: Take high quality photo

In managing your fashion blog, it’s not only about posting something expensive just like high end brand’s outfits or very high holiday which full of party but your blog must be reflection of your personalities. First, it is not about money that you get from your fashion company advertising. Reader will be interesting to check out the clothes that bloggers wear; moreover they want to know the story behind each outfit as well.  In many types of writing, picture isn’t essential, but since fashion is such visual things, readers want to see the pieces that writer talking about. That’s why the pictures should look as professional as possible and show reader cute and fun new ways to pair clothing and accessories together.

 

For the last step, I will show you the example of photo that “acceptable” to be post in fashion blog. Now I will give you some example of the photo from Christina Foka’s  blog, Toybox by Christina, She is also our “Fashion Blogger of The Week”!
