In this series, we’ve been interviewing some of our favorite fashion bloggers around the world, today our featured blogger is Gentiana of Stimulate it.
Hi Gentiana, tell us a little bit about yourself (who you are/what you do/where you’re from, etc.).
My name is Gentiana, I am 23 years old. I was born and raised in Germany, I have Albanian roots and I live and study in London. I am a passionate “Fashion Marketing” student and enjoy the big fashion metropolis London. I couldn´t live without music, lipsticks, bubble gum (only the sweet flavours) and my long nails!
How would you define your style?
Honestly, there is no definiton for my style. Your style and what you wear depends really on your character and your mood. You can´t put me in one box. I really love conspicuous and unique outfits, but I also like minimalism. I do love strong and powerful colours (neon colours are my favourite). My style is a mix of urban, sporty, chic, elegant but always young with a little edge. There is always a detail which makes my style look different. Either it is my love for hats and scarfs, my colourful lipsticks or some accessories which I always ad to my outfits. People sometimes don´t recognize me. Today you might see me with some nice high heels and an elegant dress, tomorrow it could be exactly the opposite. I love to change and to play with my style and my hair. I love so many styles that I couldn´t decide even if I had to. Having one particular style would be probably to tedious for me. There is no era or style I like to follow. I mix up everything even though it might not match together at the very first sight.
How did you find your sense of style?
I think you were born with the sense of style. I´m sure I got influenced by my mother and my sister. I also got influenced by the 90´s music scene. I just wear what makes me feel comfortable. As long as you feel good, you verbalize these feelings to others without any words. Music and movies played a big role in my style.
How did you choose the name of your blog?
STIMULATE IT (EYE, HEART, EAR, MOUTH)
You do stimulate your senses with things that you see, read or hear. Stimulating your ear basically means that you get a feeling by seeing pictures. You get inspired by “Outfit posts” or you fall in love with “Architecture” pictures. The same happens to your HEART by reading something, it happens to your EARS by hearing music and MOUTH stands for all the delicious restaurants I have been to. My blog should be a blog about art. Not only about fashion. My style can´t be put in one genre so can´t my blog. I love to talk about things that I like and are on my mind.

Your first thought in the morning?
What is your favourite thing to do when not blogging?
Singing! What a lot of people don´t know. I do sing! And can´t wait to show you guys something as soon as possible.
For you, what is the world’s most fashionable city?
A really tough question. I think I have to say Paris, New York and London. They´re all fashionable in their own way and I love the fashion in all three cities.
How would you describe fashion in the city where you live?
London is different and unique. This city gives you a feeling that no other city could give you, in my opinion. …You have a lot of strong fashion characters in London. People without any fear of showing themselves and mixing the most craziest styles together. For example, Rihanna. Her last album was really influenced by the style of London´s fashion. The fashion here is really expressive, rebellious and powerful.
What message do you hope to send to your readers?
Confidence and Energy to try and do everything their heart desires.
