I’ve blogged a lot about people who are style inspirations for me, but in this post I’m not only blogging about someone who’s style I admire but who inspires me career wise.
I’ll start with the fashion first, Edith always looks so well dressed, yet does her own thing which is something I always admire about people when they don’t follow the crowd. Her style is pretty much everything I love about fashion at the moment, the more indie side of fashion with shirts, blazers, tailored trousers, tea dresses etc. She wears what suits her but she’s also not afraid to wear something others wouldn’t.
When it comes to careers, Edith Bowman has the best in the business. I would love to have her job, it is my absolute dream job! She writes for Clash magazine, works on Radio 1 and presents BBC3 coverage of the festivals, which is exactly what I want to do. I used to listen to her show every afternoon on Radio 1 when she did weekday afternoons and she really inspired me to want to be a radio DJ. To write for a magazine is something I’ve always wanted but I just love her writing and outlook on music, and I’ve found out about so many new bands because of her. As for the festival coverage, nothing would be better for me than spending my entire summer travelling round the festivals watching and interviewing bands and artists. Her career is absolutely something that I look to work towards for myself, so one day I can achieve my dream to write for a magazine and have my own radio show. It might not happen but everybody needs someone to look up to in terms of their work and Edith is that person for me.
So thanks Edith for being a truly inspirational!
