iamthenublack: Aindrea of Fashionistadujour
Hey! I’m Aindrea, and to sum up I’m an overachieving perfectionist who finds solace in the art of fashion. I’m a fashion journalist and I’m 15 years old. For reals. I’ve attended London Fashion Week since I just turned 14 and haven’t looked back since. My life is a constant juggle of academia and fashion. One day I’m studying Math, the next I’m mingling with the likes of Kate Moss and other prominent members of the fashion industry. I’ve shown a collection at fashion week as part of London Fashion Week, covered major shows and has published fashion articles in magazines and online. But it all boils down to passion and determination. Fashion is my past, my present, and my future.
At the moment, I’m concentrating on passing my GCSE’s as well as juggling a couple of fashion projects and hopefully looking for an internship next Summer.
Fav lyric from a song
And i hate to brag, now its forgotten
Feeling strange and looking rotten
Fighting like a soldier over skinny jeans and pick and mix
– Please Don’t Touch by Polly Scattergood
Who and what inspires you?
Life. I’m lucky enough to be immersed in an industry buzzing with inspirational figures and bursting the seams with creativity. I adore the pretty things. The Forties. A time of understated sexiness. Of lace, pearls and velvet. Of romance. I’m inspired by the beauty of my surroundings.
Past & present icons
I have a complete obsession with Edie Sedgwick and Marilyn Monroe. There’s something about them. Maybe it was their killer fashion sense or trouble souls. Beautiful disasters with a touch of glamour.
