Instagram glam, Lookbook.nu star, this 23 year old from Tokyo, Japan is in the top 10 with her girly, playful yet edgy style.
We spoke to Chiemi about what it’s like living the life online as a fashion personality, if she will ever get into blogging and youtube, how she describes her personal style, and tips on how to ace Lookbook.nu!
KNEWYU: WHAT’S YOUR NAME, WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHAT DO YOU DO?
CHIEMI: My name is Chiemi, I was born and raised in Philippines (currently living in Tokyo).
K: YOU HAVE SUCH A CUTE FASHION STYLE. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
C: I’d say dark, cute and sexy.
K: I NOTICED FROM YOUR LOOKBOOK.NU PROFILE THAT YOU WEAR A LOT OF BLACK. IS THAT BECAUSE YOU DON’T REALLY LIKE COLOUR?
C: I used to wear colorful clothes. I Really love colors, But I got seriously depressed before and start wearing black. Then it just grew with me.
Even though I’m not depressed anymore I feel more confident when I wear black, although occasionally I’ll wear some clothes that are not black but I still make sure that my outfit is 70-90% black 😂.
K: WALK US THROUGH A DAY IN YOUR LIFE.
C: If it was my day off I’d start my day stretching. Then draw. I always draw whenever I can. Sometimes I WILL go out and find a nice place to eat lunch. If I had no plans for the day I would go shopping; mostly window shopping just to get outfit ideas.
K: WILL YOU START A FASHION BLOG OR YOUTUBE CHANNEL?
C: I wanna start a fashion blog but I’m still a newbie here (on Lookbook.nu) so I wanna make sure I know enough before starting one.
K: WHO/WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGNERS/BRANDS?
C: UNIF is my all time favorite brand.
K: IF YOU HAD TO WEAR ONE OUTFIT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
C: A black crop top and black denim shorts. That’s my go to outfit almost every day.
K: WHAT TIPS CAN YOU GIVE TO ANYONE WHO IS STILL DISCOVERING THEIR OWN FASHION STYLE?
C: Check Instagram, Lookbook.nu and some sites similar to that and get Inspired.
