I am a fashion style blogger and have a successful blog platform which has been running for over a year now. I have collaborated with a few brands during the course of my sourjon in the fashion industry in Nigeria. Though still a Student of economics at Covenant University Ota, Ogun State Nigeria. I spend most of my leisure time creating mood boards, searching for locations and writing editorials, of which I have written over 18 plus editorials of which 6 are currently available on my blog platform. lastly, i have featured on a number media platforms based on style recognition.
Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).
Our readers would love to get to know you more Gerald. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
Gerald is an 18-year-old. Who is a fashion enthusiast? I have a keen eye for details and love to express my emotions via curating looks that can transmit a message to onlookers even without introduction.
Gerald, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Blogger?
My passion is definitely driven by art. I love to be associated with anything artistic. I have a huge aspiration to really be successful in life and someday have a multi-national conglomerate.
I initially was just into designing wears, but certain restrictions (particularly finance and academic Objectives) played its part in me thinking of another strategy to build up my fashion portfolio. thus, I resorted to blogging
Who is your inspiration in life Gerald? How do you keep inspired?
I am not so particular about who inspires me. but I would rather say hard workers, who have the fear of God and also have a multi-dimension view of life inspire me mostly
We all make mistakes Gerald, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Blogger, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
mmmm, I think it should have been starting blogging by using free-hosting to be very honest.
Gerald, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Blogger, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I haven't had much of clients to be very honest. but when any of them come knocking, I make sure I give my stances; with quality being at the center stage. thus, once it's not quality, then its difficult for both parties(client and I) to forge ahead.
Please tell us, Gerald, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Blogger?
It still surfaces to be very honest with you. It is mostly when am in school. Especially when I have test or examinations. What I do is to effectively manage my time by rationing it into an 80-20 span of concentration rate. Giving my books more time and then checking blog stats when a little bit free
Gerald, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
Its definitely had to be when I had to work on a mood board that was to be submitted to a photographer so we could collaborate on a fashion editorial together. I really took delight in his joy that I could come up with such creative direction.
Gerald, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Blogger. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Yes, it had to be when I won my first award barely six months into blogging. I felt really happy and couldn't stop thanking God
Gerald, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Times at which am creative. Most exciting thing obviously has to be when the outfit or my styling is dapper and at the top of its game. But then the most difficult thing could be getting a location that fits into the actual theme of what I am trying to create.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Blogger?
The truth, which I am still learning about is that in order to succeed as a blogger; you must be consistent, creative, patient, plan effectively, network, keep researching and last and most importantly have a very big God whom you always pray to for more opportunities.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands, and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
yes I am, Sporting(athleisure) brands as well as Cinematographers
Now for the best part Gerald! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
