This week we spotted a girl on Twitter confessing her love to us and like appropriate for Valentine's Day week, we fell for her too. There's a picture of her hanging out on Mars - what's not to love?! OK, so maybe she isn't actually an astronaut, but the photographer and fashion blogger has a really good eye and so her Insta feed looks very pretty. You know how this works - we got in touch to find out what she does to be this rad. Follow her Instagram
. What is Cape Town like? What’s your number one tip to us if we were to visit?
I've only just moved here about 2 weeks ago actually! So far, it's amazing. It's nestled between an incredible mountain and beautiful beaches and has an incredible energy. If I could give you one tip it would probably be something silly like wear sunscreen because this is quite an outdoorsy city! There's always some mountain hike or beach or outdoor concert to go too :) Also, there's an amazing coffee & good food culture so I'd definitely recommend getting in on that! How old are you?
I'm 23, going on 24 in next month! What do you do? And more importantly, what are you about (if its not the same thing)?
I freelance as a fashion photographer and it's my biggest passion, creating beautiful images is definitely what I'm about. Do you have any people, bloggers, IG users or magazines that inspire you? In terms of fashion and the things that you do?
A couple. I try and surround myself with inspiring people that push me and make me want to be better, and in Cape Town it's been quite easy to do that. I'm really inspired by bloggers like Gary Pepper, Natalie Suarez, Yara Michels, Ivania Carpio, and Dani & Bianca from Kastor & Pollux. Oh and Leandra Medine, god she's funny. I'm attracted to blogs with beautiful photography, a clear aesthetic, whit, opinions and intelligence. Which designers or fashion companies do you like and why (don’t worry – you don’t have to say Miista)?
Lately I've been enjoying clean lines and minimalism a lot more and I find Zara and Acne just gets it's basics (and everything else) so right. Rebecca Taylor is just the coolest and I also thoroughly enjoy Phillip Lim's creations. And Chloe, because Chloe. You take great IG pictures and your portfolio looks great! Have you studied photography or did you learn on your own?
I studied photography, and thank you so much! :) What's the idea behind your blog Fancy Pants?
Essentially I just want Fancy Pants to be this visually inspiring place that people enjoy visiting for my take on both fashion & photography. What would you recommend to anyone that’s only just starting to take pictures?
Just keep that camera on you all the time, and actually get out into the world and have experiences that are worthy of taking beautiful pictures!
