Last month I met the lovely, Isabella Thompson, the Brisbane fashion blogger behind Style Market. We found that we had a lot in common and it was unfortunate that this single meeting would be our last, as I was moving to Amsterdam. However, we did get a chance to frolic in the Roma Street Parklands and match some of these perfect-for-the-races dresses, with the beautiful flowers blooming in the park. Spring is here! Read on for more about Isabella and her future ambitions.
5 Minutes with Isabella Thompson of Style Market
What do you love about blogging?
I love blogging because It allows me to interact with other fashion interested people and share and create an online community for Style Market. Social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook permit you to have a broad reach of followers so millions of people all around the world can view my blog and be apart of Style Market. I love that I can express myself and people follow me because of my unique sense of style. I think that is a very special thing!
What inspires you creatively?
Most definitely fashion and style. I’ve been an avid follower of fashion blogs like Tuula, Fashion Toast, Sincerely Jules and the list goes on since the early years of high school. I found that personal style was evolving on blogs and even through celebrities in a huge way. I found that I always loved and was curious talking with other girls about where they shop, and where they got their outfits. So the things that inspire me are most definitely other style icons, fashion bloggers and most importantly my amazing friends.
Who are your favourite designers?
I have three favorite designers. Firstly the duo behind Aje, Adrian Norris and Edwina Robinson. I love everything they do, from tartan, to sequin – they do no wrong by me. Then Kirsty Irwin whose the designer of Jaggar the label. She never ceases to amaze me, she’s so unique in everything she does, she always somehow finds a way to be different, who would have thought she could make a giraffe print blazer look so fricken awesome! And last but not least Cydney Morris whose the head designer of Stone Cold fox. They do a lot of beautiful wedding gowns but they also do lace tops and amazing silk rompers. They are all self designed textiles, and I’m particularly impressed with the pickiness to the exquisite texture of their sand-washed silks, each item is thought out and personal.
Do you have any future goals you are aspiring to achieve?
In the future I would love to work in the fashion world. Whether its helping with the marketing of big companies or even with runway events. It would be my dream to work with one of my favorite designers too!
What were you wearing and how would you describe your personal style?
I was wearing two dresses from Kikki Lane boutique (yellow and blue) and the red strapless from Pilgrim clothing. Shoes were both Steve Madden and accessories were: red bag was alexander wang, and gold clutch was Grace Inspired. Check out Style Market for full clothing details.
Which shows will you be attending at Brisbane Fashion Week?
I’m going to the Fashion in the city parade and Myer spring summer 15′ at Mercedes Benz fashion week.
