Justine Iaboni: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

My mom

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a collection of fragmented moments, striving for immortality.

Why do you do what you do?

I want to give my all to something, not just a 9-5 commitment.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Graduating from University, I decided to take a path that had no certainties. It was exciting.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Convincing everyone (and myself) that things would work out. People who believed in me were the biggest sign that I was on the right path.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Chiara Ferragni – basically the pioneer of blogging. Yes, I have received a few letters and emails from people telling me that I am an inspiration to them. It's very surreal to be on the receiving end of that!

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Not believing in myself. When you let fear deter you from taking risks and giving it your all, you actually are taking 10 steps back.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Launching a new site with my partner, Alexander Liang. It's called Style Together. (

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can come together.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I hope the peplum trend never comes back.
