INDIA BLOGGER FEATURE

This May we are introducing India Style Blogger Shalini Chopra of blog Stylish by Nature, a fashion, style & beauty blogger from Bangalore in India.

Shalini buys in luxury boutiques and casual stores bringing to you beautiful and trendy styles to other like-minded people who have fashion running through their veins.  Shalini brings you all types of lifestyle, street style, vintage, designer couture, affordable fashion and even product reviews.  Everything and anything useful to your image with plans to expand more on fashion, fitness, fun, friends and flavors of life which in India is very flavoursome.

Bangalore (aka Bengaluru) is the capital of India’s southern Karnataka state, the centre of India’s high-tech industry, known for it’s greenery, architecture and of course culture, our travel bucket list just keeps growing.
I chatted to Shalini to find out a bit more about the fashion community and India.  Check out the interview below.

Describe the blogging community in India?
Blogging in India is growing at a rapid pace, however, professional blogging in India is still not considered a full-time job.
I’ve been a professional blogger for the last 4 years, and probably more than 1000 times people have asked me what I do for a living!
When I respond that I’m a blogger, I can see the confused faces asking “What is blogging ??”

How would you describe StylishbyNature and your style?
StylishByNature.com is Indian fashion blog, street style and beauty blog for all like-minded people who believe that style runs in their blood and is as important as breathing. Here you will find lifestyle, street style, vintage, designer couture collections, affordable fashion, product reviews; everything that can be useful to your image. Look forward to more on fashion, food, fitness, fun, friends and flavors of life.

My style is eclectic. I buy in luxury boutiques but also in casual stores. My goal is to show you how we can be beautiful, trendy, stylish in every sense, pondering the purchase according to the latest trends of the moment! I hope to be a source of inspiration for everyone who likes fashion and those who want to embrace this world.

What are the best places to shop in India?
India is a shopaholic’s paradise. Flea markets, malls, designer boutiques, Exquisite handicrafts and a number of shopping arcades cater to every taste. India celebrates shopping in all its hues.
Few of my Best Shopping Destinations in India are –
Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Varanasi, Mysore

What is India’s best kept travel secret?
In a country as vast, geographically diverse, and steeped in legend as India, every place has a story to tell.
Submerged chapels and unexplored caves—there’s plenty to discover, if you know where to look.

One of them is ‘Gulf of Mannar, Tamil Nadu’. he entire stretch from the pilgrimage town of Rameswaram to the Gulf of Mannar Marine National Park at the southern tip of India is a piece of pure wonder.

Thank you Shalini for sharing with us all your tips on India & Fashion, we look forward to seeing how your blog grows

CHINA BLOGGER FEATURE

We have just started a new feature on our blog, where we will be interviewing bloggers from all around the world.

A different month will bring you a different country.

We are so excited about launching this,  for it incorporates both our love of fashion & travel and what better way to see the world (through a screen) than from a bloggers point of view.

For our first month, April we have decided to focus on China as it the start of their Shanghai Fashion Festival, located on the central coast, Shanghai is China’s biggest city and global financial hub – definitely just got added to our bucket lists.

We are proud to introduce China Fashion Bloggers who have been kind enough to give us a little insight in to their fashion world! They have recently added a new Designer Feature showcasing Runway Photos and a Bloggers‘ page which shows all the contributing bloggers that make CFB possible!

See the interview below

Describe the blogging community in China?

Blogging in China is still relatively new. A lot of people call themselves bloggers as a sort of “catch all” phrase for KOLs, influencers, or celebrities that don’t have a specific profession like acting or singing… this has diluted the term, and the idea of a blogger is even further diluted by platforms like Weibo. Weibo is a microblogging service, so many people see themselves as bloggers, which is both good and bad.

Anyway can blog in China, and a lot of more independent and forward-thinking individuals have already jumped on board… but the number of high-quality bloggers in China right now are few and far between. CFB strives to identify the best blogging talent and put them all in one place, to foster a community of like-minded individuals with different perspectives. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t understand bloggers or think it is a nasty word for people with questionable working status and morals, but bloggers have a lot to offer not only the fashion community in China but society at large.

Unfortunately a lot of blogging platforms need a VPN to access in China, so there may be a couple of very famous bloggers but the community as a whole is still in its very early stages

How would you describe China Fashion Bloggers and your style?

CFB is the perfect bridge between designers, retailers, and consumers in China. We offer a lot of different perspectives and styles. The style of the site is clean and minimal, as we choose to put the spotlight on our bloggers’ content as opposed to the design of the site itself.

In terms of my personal style, I like things that are obscure, ethnic, and different. It’s a reflection of me as a mud-blood, being both Korean and American. I like mixing ideas and patterns and proportions to create something new.

Best places to shop in China?

MHT, Triple Major, Autumn Sonata, Alter, Dong Liang, Lane Crawford, 10 Corso Como

China’s best kept travel secret?

Street food. Most people are afraid of it, but you should definitely try everything (except for maybe the meat products)… it’s cheap but better than a lot of fancy places in China.

We got the email for Paolo Sebastians Spring/Summer 14/15 Legend of the Sea Sirens inspired collection and we are so excited to share it with you!

A series of muted tones drawn from the coast, shades include sea foam,violet and shell. kl10441157_671917692880153_4335611867837357164_nCloudy opal stones, iridescent beads, and shell-like embellishments evoke an otherworldly feel, whilst this season’s custom print – inspired by vibrant coral reefs -embodies the flirtatious nature of the siren.

The collection features intensely embroidered ball gowns, sheer fishtail silhouettes in soft tulle and a cut out swimsuit.

The intricately hand-beaded finale gown exemplifies the craftsmanship that the label prides itself upon. 10485415_671917812880141_2447168535606278162_o“This season we have gone for a sleeker look,” says designer Paul Vasileff.

“We have remained true to our classic Paolo Sebastian shape, whilst playing with sheerness and texture to create something new.”

“In the past I’ve looked to conventional fairy tales for inspiration, but this season I was drawn to the concept of the siren and her blend of beauty and darkness”, says Vasileff.

Enjoy! We know you will X 10468489_671917972880125_7488057414092240441_o

Ruthie Davis – Interview Exclusive

Ruthie Davis - Interview Exclusive

When we got the ‘Yes, she’ll do the interview’ we almost fell over! There’s nothing more heart warming then having a designer go out of their way to help you with your dreams.

Interviewing the fabulous Ruthie Davis is definitely a milestone in our ‘blogging’ career so far. Starting her brand in 2006 after working for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, she has come a long way since then and now Beyonce is wearing her designs.

Ruthie is an inspiration to all, and doing this interview brought us back to what we really love about fashion, the way it can make you feel, it’s power to change your mood and lift you when nothing else can, retail therapy is no myth and how it gives you something to cling to, to live for. Ruthie has reinforced that dream of ours and I hope you feel it too.

We also want to take this moment to thank our dear friend Betty Samis, for making this interview happen.

Without further delay here is the awaited interview www.fatefulfashion.com/press
