interview: crashing red.

Maria from Crashing Red


Tell us a little about yourself and your blog.
Currently residing in Sydney, I was born and raised in Europe. In Jan 2011 I founded CrashingRed.com and since then was guest blogging for HP Australia at MBFF Sydney, official blogger for Premier Fashion Trade Show, won L'avion Australia Styling Competition in 2012 and was featured in Harper's Bazaar Australia, Marie Claire and the likes. 

In June 2012 I also founded Australian Fashion Bloggers Union (AFBU), the first official network for invited fashion bloggers. That was not enough and in November 2012, I've launched SoNailicious.com - the first online magazine dedicated to nails only. In March 2013 published my first book. Yay!

Significantly, I'm also a mum to one super cute and cuddly baby girl. Motherhood brings so much joy but it is quite a life changing experience, I won't deny that. I think blogging helped me a lot to keep my focus, sanity and style too.

How did you first get into fashion and blogging?
Into fashion I first got when I was 17 as a model, but hey before that at tender age of 12 I was making my own clothes. I was my own designer! I founded CrashingRed in January 2011 as a social media experiment. Who knew back then that the blog would grow so fast and bring some great opportunities my way.

Where are some of your favourite places to shop?


Shopbop.


Which bloggers do you look up to and why?
Nicole Warne. Her photos are amazing, her style is impeccable and most importantly, she is a genuine and kind person and she shows that well through her blog.

Liss from Daydream Lily wants to know: What is your favourite camera to shoot with and any tips for taking blog photos?
Canon 6D and lense 50mm. Always shoot in day light early morning or late afternoon. Go crazy, be yourself, smile, jump, have fun and your outfit photos will shine! As for the product photos - go creative, play with backgrounds, lighting, etc.

What should we ask the next interviewee?
If you had to go to the moon tomorrow would you bring along your favorite lipstick and a pair of heels on the spaceship? And what music would you listen too while hanging in cosmos?
