This post is better late than never... Courtesy of Twitter I found out about a magazine called Sketchbook Magazine www.sketchbookmagazine.com who were holding a pop-up shop in Carnaby, London. Various talks and workshops featuring artists, designers ect...took place in the cute shop with fabulous illustrations on the wall. I managed to go to the final day event where a question and answer session was being held by Susie Bubble of www.stylebubble.co.uk were I managed to record the session as well as getting some videos and photos.
It was great to actually hear her story after being a avid reader of her site for so long and understand her inspiration for becoming a fashion blogger. It is her real love and flair for fashion that has made her such a success and an inspiration to people like me.
I managed to have a little chat with Wafa Al Obaidat the founder and editor of Sketchbook Magazine, who even in the short time that I spoke with her gave me some sound advice on making it in the industry. Hopefully at a later date I can conduct a proper interview with Wafa so many more people can be inspired by her success. I think the whole concept about this magazine is just great and enforces the idea of collaboration within the fashion industry; it is an prime example of how successful collaboration can be.
