I have been reading Gala's blog iCiNG for a while now, and I am always impressed by her articles, her advice and the wonderful community she managed to put together. He style is completely unique & reflects her personality so well, that I absolutely wanted to interview her.
❤ How would you describe your personal style?
International playgirl with an air of ridiculousness, & just the right amount of Virgo obsession!
❤ What are your inspirations? Designers / artists you admire most?
Often I find I'm more inspired by the lifestyles of the artists I admire than the actual art or work they do. For example, I find the lifestyles of Madonna, Karl Lagerfeld, Diana Vreeland, etc. more intriguing than what they produce (though of course I am also a fan of their work). But I draw inspiration from all sorts of places, from the writing of Bret Easton Ellis to the rebellious nature of Banksy to the frou-frou fabulousness of Erin Fetherston!
❤ Which of your creations / accomplishments are you the most proud of and why?
iCiNG is the treasure I am most proud of -- especially since most of the amazing things in my life that have happened recently have come about as a consequence of the site. But it's just a project, so it's important not to tie it in with my ego too closely. It's not who I am, even though I love it very much, & who knows what I will be doing in five, ten or twenty years?!
❤ Which trends do you think will be big this Fall? Which ones will flop?
It is my earnest hope that the #1 trend seized by the masses is to start expressing themselves & shunning trends... Wink wink!
❤ What's the most fashionable city in the world at the moment?
New York, always. Always!
❤ Which websites do you go to regularly?
My RSS reader has to be seen to be believed. But I am always flitting back & forth between Gmail, Livejournal, Flickr, Twitter & iCiNG!
❤ What would you wear on a date?
That would all depend on who the date was with! I don't like to be too obvious, though. Show a bit of leg & a flash of collarbone but use your wits & charm to make it a date worth remembering! But I would always wear cute knickers & enough mascara to survive any kind of adventure!
