In conversation with Gergana IvanovaBy Style Counsel / November 22, 2017 / Blog,Interviews / 0 Comments
Gergana Ivanova is a Bulgarian Creative Director, Stylist, and Blogger. Living in New York City means she is always looking bang on trend and up experimenting with her look, here she discusses her style icons and her favorite places to shop.
How would you describe your own personal style?
I love simple, chic, and timeless pieces. Living in NYC I tend to catch myself wearing black a lot, so most of my outfits tend to have a lot of black in them.
What trends are you loving this season?
Pastels! Which is ironic considering the answer to my last question but I really am trying to incorporate color into my wardrobe so let’s see how that goes….
Who is your style Icon?
I’m a very indecisive person and change my mind all the time so my style icon changes as well but I’m currently loving Kendall Jenner’s style.
What trends do you think will be big this year?
Some of the biggest trends for this year would definitely be embellished jeans, jeans with a ruffled bottom, statement tees, and pastel colors!
Where do you tend to buy your clothes, and why?
Intermix is my favorite store because it exemplifies my style so well. For higher end statement pieces I also love Barney’s NY and Saks 5th Ave. When I’m on a budget I love Zara, ASOS, and NAKD fashion.
What fashion blogs do you follow?
I love finding inspiration from other women! I’ve followed Marianna Hewitt and Johanna Olsson for a while now. They have amazing style, a great voice, and beautiful photos.
Do you listen to music when you are getting ready? If yes, what’s your favorite playlist on Spotify?
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I don’t think I can do anything in my house without having music playing in the background. I change my playlist all the time depending on my mood and usually make my own playlists but if I had to choose a Spotify playlist it would probably be Rap Caviar because whether it’s 9 am or 9 pm I’m always ready to turn-up.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
When I’m 33 years old I see myself owning my own company that inspires other individuals to follow their dreams and to create their own path in life. Since I was a little girl I was always the person my friends, and even family, would go to for life and career advice. I love inspiring others to stop listening to society and start listening to their heart. I would love to have a team of like-minded individuals helping me spread this message as well.
What are your biggest goals this year?
My biggest goals for 2017 are to travel the world, continue growing Fashion is my Forte, and to just simply live my life. I want to take continue taking risks, trying new things, and finding my path in life.
What do you find are the top questions your followers tend to ask you most?
How do you edit your photos? Where did you buy that? What are your top tips for new bloggers or individuals who want to work in the fashion industry?
Let’s pretend that you’ve agreed to participate in Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. You’ve been told that you are only allowed to bring 5 items of clothing (including shoes and swimwear) and 3 beauty products what would you bring?
I would bring a tinted moisturizer, dark black mascara, my Dior lip balm, a fun maxi dress, a pair of sandals, two bikinis and oversized sunglasses.
Where are people most likely to see you?
A coffee shop in Soho or shopping on 5th Ave!
