(The following is an excerpt from an interview I did with Violet Roots)
1. TELL US YOUR NAME, ABOUT YOUR BLOG, BIZ, OR CREATIVE PURSUITS!
I studied Fashion Design at university in England. I shifted my career down the line to advertising and film production in Doha, Qatar. In my free time, I would continue to do styling for editorial shoots and private clients.
In 2013 I was selected by Harpers Bazaar Arabia for their ‘Best Dressed’ list. In 2014 I moved to Los Angeles to further pursue my goals. I launched Boyajian Trend Gallery in 2015, an online boutique housing jewelry & handbags I curate from independent designers around the world.
I also relaunched my blog a few months ago to continue sharing my passion for all things stylish, be it fashion, wellbeing, and events I attend in LA.
2. HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE “CREATIVITY”?
Creativity doesn’t have to be something tangible. It’s anything that you can ‘create’. In order to create something, there has to be an initial thought process. Be it a marketing campaign, a jewelry collection or the design of a living room.
Having worked both in advertising and in fashion, I appreciate the creativity that goes in to any form of work, such as an ad in a magazine or the print on a fabric for a dress. I find and express my creativity through my accessories. As I developed my personal style over the years, I found I preferred to wear more classic pieces of clothing and then have fun with my accessories, adding colors and bold pieces.
Creativity comes in many forms, and I believe everyone finds creative comfort in their own ways.
