Zara Dilawar: Interview

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

My Mother

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

I’m a fashion wardrobe stylist and personal style blogger

Why do you do what you do?

I love transforming people/things through art of fashion, I love what I do because it allows me to be creative and not sit behind a desk all day because that’s boring

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

I always knew I wanted to be in the Fashion Industry, I just didn’t know how to pursue a career into it until I went to Toronto Fashion Academy where I learned and got the most experience to be a part of the industry

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

Definitely convincing my parents that I wanted to be a part of the fashion world. They obviously thought it was not the best career path for me but I think I am on the right track of proving them wrong.

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

I still get inspired everyday by a lot of people, I love to see people that enjoy their jobs and love to do what they do, it’s honestly the most satisfying feeling and I get messages every day from my followers telling me how much I inspire them to follow their dreams and nothing can top that feeling knowing you are making change in someone’s life.

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

No major mistakes yet but definitely will take notes and not try to do it again.

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

I am working on some collaborations with upcoming fashion designers in Toronto.

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

Don’t be in such a rush to figure everything out, Embrace the unknown and let your life surprise you.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Don’t dream your life, live your dream!
