Tia Teilli: Talk us through your blogging career- how did it start and how has it progressed?
I started blogging when I was studying Fashion Communication, as an outlet to share my thoughts about fashion and share my everyday style. As I decided to take up blogging full time, I started investing a lot my time, thought and energy into the blog. Today FUSS is not just a platform to share my outfits but also to take up projects with brands in the capacity of a creative director, stylist. model and conceptualiser. It is an online portfolio of sorts wherein I look at diversifying and improving on my work with every project.

Tia Teilli: What was the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?
I can’t think of a particular, single moment which has been challenging. However, the whole process of blogging full-time is a challenge as most of us work alone. So we are the ones responsible of taking care of every aspect of the business from accounts, setting up a business model, emails, conceptualising, shooting, managing finances, hiring photographers per project, writing. It involves a lot of multi-tasking like any freelance job would. 
.
Tia Teilli: How would you describe your style?
My style is a mixture of my inspirations of the moment. I love to layer, play with proportions, wear separates interestingly. I like to have a bit of a dark romantic touch to my looks and that is the aesthetic of FUSS as well. A kind of dark romance.

Tia Teilli: What is your favorite item in your closet?
A light faux leather jacket. I wear it all the time.
.
Tia Teilli: Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?
I’m very observant and I like to add inspiration from everything I see or notice, to my style. Color schemes of buildings, old people wearing stripes and navy or a lady wearing a midi skirt on the bus. I love to silently make note of things around me and that is where ideas and inspirations come from. I also love to read books, watch interviews and browse through the internet for visual and mental stimulation when it comes to fashion.
