Meet the Fashion Bloggers Valter Claudio Fashion Blogger

10 marzo 2014

In this series, we’ve been interviewing some of our favorite fashion bloggers around the world, today our featured blogger is Valter Claudio.

Tell us a little bit about yourself (who you are/what you do/where you’re from, etc.).
Hi, my name is Valter, i´m 24 years old, i´m a nurse from Portugal.

How would you define your style?
It´s difficult to define my style in just one word. My style changes with my state of mind. I´m not in favour of a fashion preconception, the style it´s a form of expression, it differs from what we want to express in a certain moment, place or situation.

How did you find your sense of style?
Since i know myself i´ve always had a passion for the fashion world, it´s esthetic. I cannot specify an age or a date, maybe in my adolescence I gave more and more importance to style, to what I really like.

What inspired you to start a style blog? What motivates you to keep blogging?
I started my own blog motived by a close friend that also has a fashion blog. At the beginning I didn´t took things too serious, what to expect from the new experience and my time was not that much and it coincided with a trip to Mexico.
Nowadays what motivates the most to keep the blog it´s the possibility of having a place where I can share my tastes, ideas and suggestions about esthetic, fashion and art.

How did you choose the name of your blog?

I imagined many names for my blog but I chose my own because it´s really what represents me first.

What was the best comment you ever received from a reader?
That´s difficult to answer because all comments are good, even the ones that disagree with my post. I believe that the different opinions, the share, let us see other approachs for the same thing. But choosing one comment I say any commentary by AmberHella, she´s my favourite Portuguese Fashion Blogger.

Who/what inspires you?
What inspires me it´s what surrounds my life, what i see, what captures my attention. It can rather be a colour or an old picture in a family album where all the ambience gives me all kinds of feelings.

What are your favourite pieces in your wardrobe?
I´m a very emotional person about my wardrobe. I can´t easily rid of my clothes because all of them remind me of certain moments, places and feelings. With whom I was when a bought it? Who gave it to me? Now i´m completely in love with my jacket from New Yorker wich transmits the essence of Burberry Prorsum. One of my brand image it´s my blue blazer from Zara, I can´t get tired of it!

What is your top fashion tip?
Be yourselves! Doesn´t matter if you wear a fur coat, oxford shoes or the colour of your chinos. Fashion shouldn´t be boring or tight. We must live it like a part of our lives, where we can show ourselves.

What advice do you have for new bloggers or people considering starting a blog?
Dare! Never be afraid to risk, be yourselves in a blog, create, imagine, show your soul! Don´t be merely followers, show what you really like. Above all, always enjoy!

What importance do social networks have for you?
I admit i´m an huge fan of Social Networks, they allow a global connection among all kinds people, it can give us visibility, a kind of power in our actions. Is makes possible and quite easier the sharing. I can give an opinion about a subject in Portugal and receive an answer from Russia, this makes us citizens of the world, not just from a country.

Your first thought in the morning?
What will the day reserve to me!

What is your favourite thing to do when not blogging?
Be with friends. I love the feeling of simply be among the ones that are specials to us, in a quiet and honest way.

For you, what is the world’s most fashionable city?
For me there are two cities that i consider elegants: London and New York. It´s hard to choose one of them, but I think New York wins “the battle” by a few points!

How would you describe fashion in the city where you live?
In Lisbon Fashion is becoming more and more interesting. There´s a peculiar contrast between different styles, we can cross a street and take a glance at conservative style and in the next street see a casual one. But I think Fashion is not so much developed like other cities in the world but that´s what gives Lisboa beauty, a work unfinished, like a science lab experimenting different formulas, ones with success others never come out!

What message do you hope to send to your readers?
This message may sound like a “cliché” but I would like to thank everyone that follows my blog, everyone who takes a minute of their lives to read my posts, my opinions and points of view.
Thank you all to be a part of this project that now it´s not just mine but ours!!
