A cup of tea, her iPhone, her Canon camera and a stunning look, those are the only basics around “The Fashion State” blogger Fernanda Medina. She’s constantly traveling around the world hunting for new creative inspirations. She has a marketing degree by ITESO University in Guadalajara and a PR and international marketing degree by Universidad Comillas in Madrid. She studied fashion merchandising at FIT in New York and studied different courses at Marangoni moving back and forth between London, Milan and Paris. She has always loved fashion, but working at the Carolina Herrera offices in New York made her realize she wanted to make a difference within the industry.
She decided to become a fashion blogger and stylist as a way to express and transmit her inspiration and the beauty of fashion through her style. Through “The Fashion State” she wants to invite people not to be afraid of fashion. “I show my freedom by expressing myself through my everyday looks,” she said. “I hope that after someone visits my blog they would feel more confident to go and play around with their own ideas.”
Fernanda is not afraid of trying new things, playing and combining different pieces. As a result, she always looks stunning by looking easy and effortless. One thing we enjoy about her is her confident, happy, positive, friendly and outgoing personality that she also expresses through her outfits. She always shows us that fashion is just a way of expression and design is an important tool for the final creation.
Her definition of a woman with a unique style is one that exudes confidence, happiness and has fun with fashion. Her style inspirations are Olivia Palermo, Blake Lively and Kate Moss. She believes nowadays fashion blogs are tools for people to find inspiration for their own outfit creations. “My art as a fashion blogger is creating something beautiful,” she said. “It requires creativity; each outfit I ‘construct’ is my art piece.”
She strongly believes bloggers have become an important marketing tool as they help to empower new brands in a creative way. Her personal favorite designers are Timo Weiland, Public School and Cihuah because of their revolutionary ideas.
The oldest piece inside her closet is her mother’s Chanel pair of pearls and her mother’s Chanel bag, which was a gift for her 15th birthday.
