The newest addition to our Fashion Philosophy team is Lucy Anderson, who is going to take over the role of a Fashion Editor. Here in a conversation with Editor-in-Chief, Dominika Wojciechowska.
Dominika Wojciechowska: Tell me a little about yourself. What are your passions?
Lucy Anderson: I’m 21, currently studying Fashion Design at Falmouth University. I’ve always loved fashion, it’s always been a huge part of my life. Growing up and getting myself ready would excite me more than anything. I studied Photography in College but it just wasn’t for me, afterwards I just ended up researching about fashion and designers’ latest collections and that’s literally all I did for days. Then I discovered blogging, and thought it was the perfect way to express my interest and love for fashion, and my personal style.
DW: Individuality nowadays is important, do you agree? What do you think makes you an individual?
LA: I’m not going to say I’m somewhat individual to everyone else, but I’d like to think the way I have approached fashion was a different and unique way of doing so. Yes, there’s a lot of fashion bloggers nowadays and it’s very difficult to not fall into the ‘stereotype’ blogger, you know. Of course I also think that my style is individual, growing up I’d NEVER wear anything anyone else was wearing, and the amount of weird stares I got for that was insane, but I never cared and this was when I was like, 14? Crazy right? I’m not going to start worrying about what anyone thinks about my clothes so in that way I think I’m an individual because I can express fully who I am through my personal style.
DW: What would you like to bring and gain from contributing to Fashion Philosophy? Is there anything that you would like to see on the site?
LA: Bring individuality, a bit ironic, huh? And maybe some minimal styling, the site already looks amazing so, I’m just blessed to be a part of it!
DW: How did you first get interested in the world of fashion?
LA: It was just when I discovered make-up and throwing outfits together, when my mum stopped dressing me, though I definitely don’t remember her ever dressing me…
DW: How do you see your future in the fashion industry?
LA: I see myself progressing as a fashion blogger and one day have my own collection. I will definitely make it happen, somehow, but I will.
DW: Do you have any favourite blogs or fashion magazines that inspire you?
LA: Greylayers, WeWoreWhat, BeautyCrush, TheHautePursuit, AlealiMay, Essie Button.
DW: Let’s talk fashion. Do you have any favourite designers and brands? How would you describe your personal style?
LA: That’s such a hard question, there’s way too many. At the moment I’m loving anything Valentino, if I could only afford it I’d be wearing all Valentino, everyday. Also obsessed with KTZ, Y-3, Yohji Yamamoto, Dior by Raf Simons. My personal style is another tricky one, it fluctuates, but it’s very minimal colour, some days I like to dress masculine and some days I like to dress very classy, and womanly, and sometimes in-between.
DW: Are there any recent news from the fashion world that caught your eye?
LA: Alexander Wang getting fired from Balenciaga, that was a shock!
