Here is an interview with Laura Echavarria a classmate at IED with a fabulous sense of style and an interesting view on life! I asked her to describe herself in a few words and this is what she had to say: ‘’ I’m a dreamer, a fashion lover, addict to beauty and always in search of new information to fill my curiosity. I love to write on my blog http://fashionlessons.wordpress.com/ and meeting people with a different view on design is one of my obsessions.’’
Adayinthelifeof: How did you decide to choose this career in fashion? Why Milan?
Laura: Because I have already lived in Barcelona and was looking for a more quiet and calm city, and it seemed Milan was perfect for I was looking, and ofcourse it’s a fashion capital.
Adayinthelifeof: 5 words for a typical day in your life.
Laura: My day described in 5 words? Buuufff, Strawberries, Study, Read, Writing, Bicycle.
Adayinthelifeof: What is the first thing you do when you wake up? And the last thing before going to bed?
Laura: I wake up and put on some music, because music gets me going and makes me really happy. Before going to bed I try to read….but not always accomplish to.
Adayinthelifeof: Name 3 of the strangest things in your purse right now
Laura: A cream for the scars :S , a banana, a toothbrush.
Adayinthelifeof: How can you best describe your life as fashion student?
Laura: I’m passionate about fashion so I just live with thorugh it and I need it, so studying what I love makes me really happy and fulfilled.
Adayinthelifeof: What is the craziest experience you had since you moved to Milan?
Laura: Mmm Milan is pretty calm, so I must say a crazy lady on the tram that doesn’t like people who talk on their mobiles (I’ve seen her twice jaja)
Adayinthelifeof: What is your favourite place to go to de-stress after a long day at IED?
Laura: The gym or Aperitivo with my cool friends.
Adayinthelifeof: Can you describe your personal style in a few words? Where do you get your inspiration from?
Laura: My style I would say its Basic with a twist. I must say I don’t search for inspiration intentionally,I’m always looking at style blogs, magazines and I have my eyes wide open on the street so I think my subconscious gets inspired by what I see and then transforms it and I take my personal sense of style and try to wear things in my own way.
Adayinthelifeof: Who is your style icon?
Laura: I have never really thought about it…. I just love different ways of style like for example Leandra medine from Man Repeller, or Alexa chung. Sometimes I even like Olivia Palermo who is extremely posh for me but I really apreciate her flawless and classic style.
Adayinthelifeof: Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Laura: BIG question…..In my city but working all over the world with my own projects, I would love to travel and work…. I hope I can have my own e-magazine or online-something jajaja hope so.
Adayinthelifeof: If you were given the chance to spend the day with a famous designer who would you choose? Why?
Laura: Definetly Martin Margiela (the one no one knows) Because I would love to see him work and do the things he does, I think he has a great vision on design and fashion and would love to see it through his eyes.
Thank you Laura! xoxox
