Can you tell us a little bit about what you do and when you got into it?
Currently I am living in Milan and developing my fashion and lifestyle blog. I started it 4 years ago as a part time hobby to which I dedicated my time in between my study sessions. Now I am developing it more seriously, especially since the Milanese environment is a perfect hub for this kind of business.
How’s 2015 been for you? Any major highlights?
In 2015 many amazing things happened: I worked in Maison Valentino for a couple of months, I started some serious collaborations with my blog, and I brought my studies to an end.
What song have you got on repeat at the moment?
At the moment the one of Taylor Swift, ‘Blank Space’. It’s so cool and refreshing.
What fashion advice do you have for a man?
Keep it simple – men are the most handsome when they are dressed in a classical style.
If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
To have started this business with more dedication. Hard work pays off and I would have had started doing it that way a couple of years ago.
1 tip to grow your Instagram account
Stay consistent. Even though if at the beginning the audience is not showing the highest engagement, it’s important to create your own label thanks to which you will be recognisable. Eventually it will pay off.
What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?
Loafers shoes with socks. That I can never see.
Any major plans for 2016?
Visit USA – I haven’t been there yet. And do fashion weeks other than Milan.
Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?
It has always been my father.
What is your one guilty pleasure?
Always a pizza. Never ending story for me.
