Let’s continue our interview with international fashion bloggers, today our featured blogger is Ioanna of FashionWandering.
Ioanna, tell us a little bit about yourself.
Reality and dreams.. Aspirations and inspirations.. Maybe there is a day for everyone, when you get so inspired that you aspire to turn your reality into your dream. Then, you start wandering on the paths where your dreams guide you, living that way the sweetest reality! My path brought me to London, and this was just the beginning of the most inspirational journey of my life. I obtained my Masters degree on Strategic Fashion Marketing in London College of Fashion and I also attended Fashion PR and Fashion Styling courses at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Working in the fashion industry of such an inspiring city –which to me is one of the world’s fashion mecca – filled me with ideas, experiences and valuable pictures that helped me to come back to Greece, which is my homeland, and establish my career and fashion path here.
What inspired you to start a style blog? What motivates you to keep blogging?
Moving from Greece to London to study at London College of Fashion, I felt the need to create something on my own in order to express my love for fashion, editorials, inspiring people, and professionals behind the “lights” that turn women’s dreams into reality! A huge amount of content was derived from my life and activities in London, more especially from fashion exhibitions, museums, galleries and fashion shows. That is how I decided to use all this material and turn it into a blog. The title of the blog represents exactly what I do and what fascinates me the most. I wander around the magnificent world of the fashion industry and through my blog I invite you all to wander together.
