CREATOR Q & A | 31ST JANUARY 2020
Creator Q&A @sahar.koje shares her story & tips
Interview by KATHRYN CANE
Q1: How did you become a creator?
I started about two years ago when I used to get compliments on my style from everyone – even strangers on the street – and a lot of my friends would ask me for style advice. I also have an unstoppable passion for fashion, so I thought I might as well share these tips and inspos as much as I can!
Q2: What inspires your posts?
Usually the season, trends, fashion weeks, and places I go to.
Q3: What has been your biggest challenge as a creator?
Keeping up with posting during super busy days at work. I’m a pharmacist and medical researcher, and sometimes the two platforms overlap.
Q4: And your biggest achievement?
I was featured on 500words magazine, and was invited to a group of shows at London Fashion Week SS19 and SS20.
Q5: What would be your advice to anyone wanting to become a creator?
Go ahead and start. You might hesitate or feel it’s not going very well at the beginning. But first creativity doesn’t wait for the perfect moment – it finds its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones – second beginnings are always hard.
Q6: Your fave Instagram filter?
I don’t have a constantly-used filter, it depends on the photo, its lighting, and the most recent posts (grid overall).
Q7: Your fave Instagrammers?
I adore @simorenelda, a Manchester based fashion blogger – I love her simplicity and personality. My Main fashion inspos are @blaireadiebee @s4de_u @msorring – we have the same sense of fashion, and their styles resonate with me.
Q8: Which camera/lighting techniques do you use?
I always collaborate with professional photographers and rely on their techniques.
Q9: What’s your hashtag strategy?
I have a couple of fixed hashtags that define me and my aesthetics as a Sudanese modest fashion blogger – and the rest depend on the style I’m posting. It’s usually 20+ hashtags, which I’ll try to mix between trends.
Q10: The best thing about being a creator is…
You get to share what you love with others and find some people (even if it’s very few) who love it too.
