Interviewer: Please tell us about yourself?

Ankita: I am a Bangalore based Fashion And Lifestyle Blogger and a Fashion Designer by profession. 

I  have my own blog called Fashion Runway by Ankita Aggarwal.

I was one among the award winners of “Rang De 2018” my college fashion show. 

 I also participated in the Deccan Herald Fashion show as a Designer for my collection named “Indiana”

I  attribute my success to my teachers of Baldwin Women’s Methodist College  and my parents for encouraging me in the Fashion World. 

Interviewer:  What inspired you to start your blog?

Ankita: I have always loved writing about fashion, style, fabrics, trends, etc ... Have a keen eye for photography ... Love styling apparel ... All these three adding together made my hobbies turn into my profession. 

Interviewer:  How do you generate ideas?

Ankita: a) Firstly Understand your Niche (Eg - Fashion, Beauty, Tech).                                                

b) Love your Existing readers.     

 c) Be consistent.                              

d) Give away your knowledge.  

 e) Get ideas from your audience.

f) Focus on writing honest reviews.                                              

 In India blogging still seems to be an alien topic. When I did my research about fashion blogging, it took me a long time to understand how things work in this industry. I started off with Instagram as a teenager, it took a few years for brands to approach me. So have lots and lots of patience and never give up. Your dreams will definitely come true if you are passionate and also work hard towards your goal. There is no gain without any pain.

Interviewer:  Can you tell us some of your strengths that really helped you in blogging?

Ankita: My fundamental key to start blogging is self-motivation and creative ideas. For blogging, you need to provide the content every day for that self-motivation and creative mind plays an important role. Also, content should be something that enriches the reader's lives, inspires them, and makes them come back to your blog.

Also, Consistency plays an important role. A consistent blogger is one that draws the admiration of his/her followers.

Another key is to be unique. Please don't copy any ideas and posts. Be unique, people love odd and unusual ideas, be yourself. Don’t go overboard

Be passionate. Being passionate is a positive quality of good bloggers as it will give you the courage to talk about things in an honest and transparent way.

Networking also plays an important role in this. Successful bloggers use this as a way to get noticed and build their own personal brand.

You need to be strong and never stop believing in yourself. Sometimes Bloggers also get negative comments. A good and successful blogger should be able to take both compliments and criticism. Be real, Be unique, and always believe in yourself.

Interviewer:  What would be your ideal working environment?

Ankita: A good working environment for a blogger is where he/she has the time to research and write. However, blogging can be done simultaneously with any work environment with an organisation and prior planning.

I personally love writing blogs during my free time at my fashion boutique.

Interviewer:  What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?

Ankita: My biggest failure in blogging was when my Instagram handle got hacked. I had no clue how to retrieve it back. A lot of my tech savi friends tried to help me sort this problem out and it took me a week to get things right. I lost a couple of followers. I had to restart my journey again. During this period I lost six months of my written blogs. This was a very sad incident. But despite all this, once I started again I could see immense growth in this career. Once I started afresh I kind of understood that any idea can be put the right way with hard work to become a success.

Interviewer:  What would you say is the biggest challenge in fashion blogging?

Ankita: When I began my blog, there were thousands of blogs and now there are plenty more. The major publications didn't have their own bloggers, and brands didn't have digital media teams or blogger relations.  Blogging was about creating a voice independent of magazines and providing an alternative opinion to the fashion rules. Earlier most bloggers were taking photos with their cell phones (or with low-quality point and shoot cameras propped on stoves, tables, or rails).

Interviewer:  How would you describe your personal style and is there a person who is a fashion inspiration to you?

Ankita: My fashion mantra is - “Every day is a fashion show and the world is your Runway” This is the reason I named my blog Fashion Runway by Ankita Aggarwal.

Admired for her fashion sense Kritika Khurana from “That Boho Girl” is inspiring every woman to try something offbeat and distinct. 

What would you say is the greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger? (Invitations to fashion events, interaction with people, gifts, etc.)

Best feature of being a fashion blogger is if you're famous enough, then big companies and fashion brands send you free products for review and promotion. Moreover, you'll get free passes to fashion shows and events and of course lots and lots of fun. Its also a platform to socialize.

Interviewer:  What is your dream job?

Ankita: In my blogging the career I want to work for Daniel Wellington and as a designer, I want to design for the Indian film industry inspired by Manish Malhotra – a middle class a common man with no formal education in design has become one of the best designers of India.

Ankita: My favorite fashion proverb is - “Every day is a fashion show and the world is your Runway” This is the reason I named my blog Fashion Runway by Ankita Aggarwal.                                             

Interviewer:  What are some of your current fashion obsessions?

Ankita: An outfit formula is a recipe for a specific combination of items that you can wear in lots of different versions. I usually love trying out new styles with one particular dress or a garment. Example :

1.       Accessorizing Printed dresses.

2.       Creating a boho look.

3.       A shirt was worn in different ways.

4.       Oversized sweater styled in different ways.

5.       Denim styled in unique ways.

7.       Slit dresses worn in different styles.

Interviewer:  How often do you communicate with your audience (followers)?

Ankita: I communicate with my insta fam quite often. Its been 3 years since iv been blogging and I really feel connected to my audience and that’s very important in a blogger or influencers life. Every day is exciting and also challenging as to how my audience react to my posts.

I try use innovative captions on my posts also articipate in my comment threads and try not to miss out replying to even one. I also run contests and campaigns to keep my blog exciting and entertaining.

Interviewer:  What are your goals as a fashion designer? How do you see yourself progress in this field?

Ankita: My dream is to walk the ramp as a designer in the Bangalore Fashion Week.

I'm hardworking and passionate and so I’m sure I will progress in this field and my dreams will come true.

Interviewer:  Impact of social media in your life as a lifestyle blogger?

Ankita: I have my own personal style of fashion which people have appreciated and admired.

I did discover fashion blogging, though. And along with it, I discovered, not just the confidence to wear the clothes I wanted to wear, even if they were a little bit different to what everyone around me was wearing, but also a whole community of people to share those outfits with. Before I started blogging, I didn’t really have that.

So, blogging about my outfits definitely gave me the confidence to find my own style, which I think is a good thing.

Social media has helped me curate different styles and looks through my Instagram and blogs which are an extension of me.

Interviewer:  Any advice for upcoming fashionistas?

Ankita: Looking more fashionable isn't always about wearing the trendiest, most expensive clothes, or mastering some complex styling trick. Sometimes it's as easy as just tucking in your shirt or throwing on a pair of sunglasses.

Be yourself.

Wear whatever suits you and your lifestyle.

You’ve caught us red-handed: what can we say? We’re obsessed with red & all red outfits. Not all red is created equal, and we can’t help but fall in red-hot love with this bold statement-making color and all its shades. Red is all the rage this season, and for a reason: this stand out color is a punch in monotony and exudes confidence in a color-muted crowd. Look no further for the perfect red shoes to complete your monochromatic red outfit. It’s the outfit of the ages that you’ll want to wear on repeat. Top of your bold look with an even bolder pair of shoes. AS THEY SAY, WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR RED! WHAT THEY DON’T SAY (AND THEY SHOULD) IS THAT WHEN YOU’RE SURE, WEAR RED, TOO. If you think red isn’t your color, think again! This eye-catching bold hue will make you feel like you’ve got it all–our favorite feeling in the world. #Bangalorefashionblogger #fashionista #indiafashionblog #fashion #fashionblog #blogger #kthanksbye
