Time for another lovely interview from one of my sponsors! This time with the super talented Katherine from Clashes but Matches enjoy the interview and make sure to check out her awesome Blog & Etsy shop! 🙂
– Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Hello all, I’m Katherine, I’m 21 years young and I thrive in to-do lists, budgeting and handmade goodness. 🙂 I also love to cook and paint… Dont you think I’d make a good housewife? haha! I also attend University for the Creative Arts where I study Textiles Design. Its stressful but with the awesome results I get from it, its totally worth it.
– What made you want to start a blog?
I wanted to make a blog, because I think its an excellent opportunity to connect with people, and I believed its a great way for readers to fet to know me through my love of fashion, food and reading! I hope that my blog represents that!
– Any advice to future bloggers?
A friend once said “Dont think, just do”. Dont think about creating a blog just to match with the popular blogs that you may follow. Just be yourself! Also, dont be dishearted by the lack of followers, keep being true to yourself and they will come.
– Im a huge fan of your etsy shop! What made you become a designer? What inspires you?
Aww, thanks! I have always been a fan of fashion from a young age (its so cliche, but its true). I used to rip up my tights and use them to create clothing for my barbies because my parents never bought me any clothes to go with them haha. I have been creating things since I was 16, and the fact that whatever I made had gotten attention made me think that maybe I could make beautiful, one-off pieces for everyone, and they can all feel special from the handmade goodness that I produce. Anything and everything inspires me, 60s/70s fashion and my eclectic taste in music inspires the way I make clothes… they truly represent that.
– Do you remember your first handmade item you made?
Of course! I made a Denim Jean Handbag when I was 16 after watching Lizzie McGuire, I was so into her quirky, fun fashion sense, and I created it on a whim. I still have that bag up to this day!
– Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Hmm, I havent really thought past graduation to be honest, but I’d love to be living in my own place, having a part time ‘bread and butter’ job, and I can be self employed and make my own clothes, and be selling on a stall or preferably set up my own store… but we’ll see 🙂
– Anything else you’d like to share? 🙂
