WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION AND HOW DOES IT HAVE IMPACT ON THE FASHION INDUSTRY?
My profession primarily revolves around modelling and posting content on Instagram. Through my work, I aim to inspire others and instil a sense of confidence and self-expression. The fashion industry today is heavily influenced by digital media, and my presence on platforms like Instagram allows me to connect with a broad audience, showcasing trends and brands, ultimately influencing fashion choices.
WHAT IS YOUR MUST-HAVE EVERYDAY JEWELLERY ITEM?
Without a doubt, a simple yet elegant necklace is my go-to everyday jewellery piece. It adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit, whether I'm dressed casually or for a special occasion. It's a versatile accessory that can effortlessly transition from day to night.
DO YOU PREFER GOLD OR SILVER JEWELLERY?
Personally, I've always leaned towards gold jewellery, but more recently, I've begun incorporating silver into my daily wardrobe. It's an emerging trend that I find quite exciting, and I often enjoy mixing both. I adore the warmth and timeless appeal of gold, as it complements my skin tone and adds a touch of luxury to my outfits. Silver jewellery, on the other hand, creates a more edgy, "cool girl" look.
WHAT IS THE MOST PROMISING EMERGING TREND IN THE WORLD OF JEWELLERY?
Following on from my previous response, I believe the resurgence of silver jewellery is a notable trend. For me, an up-and-coming jewellery trend involves skillfully blending both gold and silver. It's a bold approach that injects an element of surprise and individuality into the wearer's style and I’m all for it!
