PERSONAL STYLE | An Interview with Megha Varshini

Fourthmode interviews Indian fashion blogger Megha Varshini about her personal style and blog Stilettos Diary.

Like other fashionistas, she has found an outlet for her passion about fashion and clothes in blogging. The inspirations behind her "quirky, elegant, simple, yet fashionable" personal style are international and uniquely Indian. Alongside 2012 trends, she reuses vintage items in creative ways.

4M | What is fashion to you?
Megha | Fashion is a creative outlet for me. People express their creativity through painting, photography, I express through my outfits.
4M | How did you get started on fashion blogging?

I feel fashion is an art and I like to reuse all the clothes in my closet to the fullest to create new looks. My clothes are a reflection of my personality – quirky, elegant, simple and yet fashionable.
4M | Who is you inspiration?

PERSONAL STYLE | An Interview with Rachel Wee


Rachel Danielle Wee
One of our series of interviews with fascinating bloggers from around the world, Fourthmode talks with Singapore fashion blogger Rachel Danielle Wee about her personal style blog Style Societe.

Rachel says her own style can be "pretty much anything" though not "the sweet demure look".

Every inspiring outfit looks fantastic on Rachel as you can see. So we begin with one of her sweeter, more demure looks. Is she wrong about that, you think?


4M | What is fashion to you?
Rachel | Fashion is a lifestyle, a form of art, and a way of expressing who you are. It shouldn't be about what's in season, but more of what you feel comfortable in.

PERSONAL STYLE | An Interview with Kristiana Vasarina


Fourthmode had the recent pleasure of interviewing Kristiana Vasarina, an 18 year old Latvian fashion blogger, who currently lives in Luxembourg, about her personal style. She blogs about "the most random things" though she tries "to stay focused" on personal style. At any moment of the day, over a dozen readers around the world can be found reading her blog. We wanted to find out just why and our answer is simple - she has a spontaneous and natural personal style that seems unaffected and effortless and continually develops.

4M | What is fashion to you?
KV | Fashion is nothing. I am not interested in fashion itself, I do not read fashion magazines or look at the new collections, in fact, I don't know what's in fashion right now. I am more interested in personal style, because everyone has their own, and it's a great way to express yourself without talking.
