Meet your top fashion bloggers for AFX 2011
Name: Tarandip Kaur
When did you first develop an interest in fashion blogging?
I decided to start a tumblr account last year, after completing my 'A' levels and I used it to store all sorts of inspirational images and videos. As I started getting more followers, I thought using text to accompany the images would be more interesting. Eventually I stumbled into fashion blogging and set up my first full fledged fashion blog in November 2010.
It was also very much inspired by various blogs and especially by Susie from Style Bubble - a blog that I have always loved reading.
Fashion blogging is way for me to keep in touch with the fashion industry, since I did not get to pursue fashion in university (I'm studying Linguistics in NTU instead).
What is the worst or some of the worst fashion disasters you have come across?
My biggest fashion pet peeve has to be when women treat leggings/tights as pants. It is just awful when they do not pair it with long tunics to cover up.
Who are your favourite designers?
Plenty! But here are a few,
International: Alexander McQueen, Matteo Mollinari, Erdem, Proenza Schouler, John Galliano, Elie Saab
Regional/Local: Max Tan, Young and Restless, eve, Noël Caleb, WANDERWONDER, Elohim
What are you most looking forward to in the Asia Fashion Exchange 2011?
I'm looking forward to all the pillar events definitely and most importantly meeting people and having lots of fun! It's all in the name of fashion.
At the end of the day, I look forward to learning something new every day.
