Author Interview – Elle Campbell

When and why did you begin writing? I have been writing ever since I was a little girl, but I only took it seriously when I was in my university days. It was a way to write down everything I was feeling passionate about and to share my passion for fashion to the rest of the world.

What inspires you to write and why? So many things inspires me to write. For example when I see someone walking down the street in an amazing outfit, it gets me thinking where did this person get their outfit from, how much did it cost them to buy it and what inspired them to mix and match their outfit like that?

Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it? While I was writing this book I rediscovered information that I had lost over the years and only through this book did I really rediscovered all the old advice people have given me about fashion. So this was really a learning process for me too!

What genre are you most comfortable writing? Non Fiction. I think it is easier writing about something you already know about. For example, if you are really great at singing, why not share your tips with the rest of the world on how to sing better? Or if you are an 80’s girl, why not share your story on what life was like in the 1980’s. No book is better than one where the author himself/herself has knowledge/experience in that topic too because then you know that the advice/information in the book must be of some relevance.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? Currently I work as a contemporary buyer and merchandiser for Juicy Couture. I have my own fashion blog and blogging has got to be one of my favourite things to do.

What inspired you to write your first book? Being as lucky as to work in the profession that you have a great passion for is truly a blessing and sometimes when I pick up neat tips and tricks, I feel like other people, whether they work in my industry or not, should have a chance hearing these great tips and that I shouldn’t just keep it to myself.
