Guest Blogger Interview: Morgan Joanel from Mojomade (with photos taken by me)

Monday, January 16, 2012

Morgan wears: Cardigan from Evil Twin via MARKET HQ, shorts from Tight Tigers, Dress worn as top by Bamboo Blonde Bali
(All photos taken by me)

Ahhhhh, The lovely Morgan Joanel. She is a fellow blogger from Sydney and I had the pleasure to hang out with her the other week and take these photos of her in devilish sequin shorts and Evil Twin cardigan. She nails the perfect colours and the style of a true rock star. I've included an interview from Morgan so you can get an insight to her life. You can also check out her blog here, and her Facebook page here.

1) Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog? 
I'm a Leo, a musician and fashion designer. I've been writing and playing music since I was a kid and since I finished high school, have been touring Australia on and off over the past 6 years. I've currently got a new single out through Sony Music called Devil's In The Detail.
I've always been interested in fashion and accessories and my blog MojoMade was born in March 2011 as an outlet for all the things I create outside of music. It started as somewhere I could put my artwork and sketches and also a couple of "style" posts and has quickly grown into a daily expression of what I'm thinking and creating.
It also lead to a collaboration with Australian label Azuki, where I designed a 14 piece capsule collection that's now stocked in over 200 stores Australia wide. Which is really exciting for my first collection!! 

2) How you first got involved in with blogging?
I was introduced to the world of blogging via a book called The Style Diaries. Before that I didn’t really know much about the whole blogging thing, but since exploring the profiles in the book and then going into the ongoing universe of blogs - I’ve really found a passion. I think what appeals is that I create things in many different ways – music, art, fashion, styling, videos, sketches, imagery, inspiration… so the blog platform fits perfectly with what I’m about.
My life is always in a state of change and travel, and my blog has become a daily measure of where I’m at. I always know when I’m in a rut, when I need to challenge myself and when things are good. Being able to explore new and old favourite blogs makes me feel really connected to my creative desires. 

3) Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
FADE TO BLACK – Gemma Rowlands (http://fadetoblackny.blogspot.com)
This was the first blog I discovered and began to follow… I love the photography and the tones she uses to create such a strong mood. Being at artist also means I get more than just a fashion fix, she uploads illustrations too. And it’s New York!!
FASHION TOAST – Rumi Neely (http://fashiontoast.com)
Being the overall number 1 blog on Bloglovin speaks for itself.
TOBACCO AND LEATHER – Abbey Watkins (http://www.tobaccoandleather.blogspot.com)
Amazing artworks, inspired by fashion, inspired by the dark side of life, witchery and sex… Can’t get enough
BOHEMIAN MUSINGS – Isabelle Kuster (http://bohememusings.blogspot.com)
Isabelle is like a little dream perched in a treehouse – I love all the whimsical photography, especially her posts with collections of images – always inspiring you to believe in magic!!
STYLORECTIC (http://stylorectic.blogspot.com)
A little shot of crazy, foreign, uncaring imagery. I love her interpretation of fashion and styling – it always challenges me and opens my eyes to my own perspective.

Much love~
