HelLo everyone, today its with great pleasure to introduce you to Wilma Harju an extraordinary girl with her own style.Beyond her age she is full of maturity and am sure that you will enjoy this interview.
Hej tell us more about you, where you live , your aims and aspiration for this year?
My name is Wilma, I'm a 15 years old and live in sweden. I don't have so many goals for this year, just that I'll be trying to be active on lookbook again, blogging more and I'll try to draw more! I have had a break from lookbook for about two years but I'm back now! And I'm glad I am.
If i say photography what does it means for you?
Photography is one of my main interests, I love to photograph! It's a way for me to express my feelings and thoughts, it may sound a bit cliché, but that's the way it is. I may not have the best camera, or is the champion of all photographic techniques, I just photograph the way I feel. You don't have to follow any particular rules! For me, therefore, photography is endless and there is so much to explore in terms of photography, and it's so many different ways to photograph! That's why I'm so passionate about photography, both digital and analog photography.
Which season do you hate and why so?
I don't hate a season, but I dislike winter! Here in Sweden, it's super cold, snowy and just... cold! I like snow, it's cozy to be inside, drinking a cup of tea and watching the snow falling outside. But, it's NOT cozy to be outside when it's snowy and cold. That's what I think.
I like sunny days and warm weather more.
Does fashion predominates in your life or do you have other passions?
I sure do have other passions too! Photography, drawing, baking, cooking and sewing for example! I like to do creative stuff, things with my hands!
let us talk about your style,how would you define it in 4 words?
I would define my style in these four words: simple, comfortable, cozy, mixed!
What is the most important thing in your life?
The absolutely most important thing in my life is my family. I have a big family, it's me, my five siblings and my mother. My dad passed away when I was around seven years old. My family means everything to me, I wouldn't be who I am today without them.
What do you try to express through your photographs?
As I said in question number 2, I'm trying to express my feelings and thoughts. I want my pictures to be naturally and peacefully. I don't like to photograph in a studio with a white background and a model standing in front of the camera with a fake smile, I want my photographs to be like a emotionally, impressionistic picture. I don't know if other people think that about my work but I'm just doing it in my way and how I feel.
what are your two favorite outfits you've worn and why these choice?
That's a hard question. And I don't have pictures of all my outfits I've worn but if I choose between these I have pictures of, I would choose this outfit. Because I think it is simple (I like to keep it simple), the outfit was comfortable and.. i just like it! Love skirts, shirt-collars and cozy cardigans!
The other outfit I choose is that one. Because: I LOVE knitted, cozy sweaters! I also wear my favorite shoes in that outfit, my creepers.
where would you go if you had to escape from reality?
That's a good question, I often feel like I want to escape from the reality or just stop it for a while so I can exhale and be for myself. Without anyone disturbing me. I know that's impossible but when I feel that way, I'm usually going out into the forest for a walk. It's quiet and you can be alone. I think that's almost as escaping from the real world.
who do you admire in life?
I admire my mom, how she has raised six child alone, without falling apart, working and earning money to the whole family by herself and beside that, she has time to make us happy and give us love.
where do you shop your clothes?
I shop my clothes all over! Second hand stores is my favorite shops, but I like ''regular'' stores to. Like Top shop Urban outfitters, Asos.com and so on.
Are your friends into fashion?
HM... I wouldn't say that they are fashionistas and crazy about fashion but they have their own styles and know what they like and don't like.
Can you share with us one of your fashion tips?
Yeah I would, if I could! The thing is, I don't have any fashion tips! And I don't follow any trend... I'm just dress in what I like and what I think is comfortable. Well, maybe that's a tip, stick to what you like, dare to be yourself and do not be afraid to stand out!
