Hello to all the Blesque readers out there! I'm Semra Huseynzade, a 23-year-old graduate with a Fashion Management degree from London College of Fashion. I was born in Azerbaijan, raised in Istanbul, Turkey and in 2012 moved to London to pursue a dream in the world of fashion. Throughout the 4 incredible years spent in the city of London, I have gained an irreplaceable fashion experience both on academic and professional level. Although I haven't often practiced fashion writing, I am deeply excited to contribute to Blesque and share my thoughts on various subjects about fashion and style.
Previously, I have given a brief interview for Harper's Bazaar Russia discussing what it is to be an intern in fashion industry in London. Talking about my work experiences in Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss and Karen Millen, I tried to share my best advices for those who aim to build a fashion career in one of the world's biggest capitals. Therefore, regardless of my ideas on the world of fashion, I would also like to share my personal experiences from the time when I was a fashion management student trying to ultimately develop a unique vision for the future of fashion.
The reason I enjoy reading Blesque is due to its presentation of elegance in fashion. In my opinion, individual accessories, ready-to wear collections, haute couture details- all is analysed on a conceptual level and fashion is presented as a form of a woman. While numerous blogs today are talking about celebrities and commercial pieces, Blesque inspires me to keep that young lady attitude with a powerful elegance.
Therefore, I am looking forward to writing for this platform that encourages me to follow creative and story-telling side of fashion world.
