Influencer spotlight of the week - Chris Kowalski
‘I don't do fashion, I AM fashion’ a slogan often used by our star of the week Chris Kowalski AKA Wharfboi_91. His social media platforms boasts over 80k followership, with curated content heavily focused on Luxury fashion, fine dinning hotspots and the most instagrammy travel destinations.
Chris had just left the barbers, after getting a fresh trim ready for an evening of events. In between jumping on the train to get to his next appointment, he was able to find the time to sit down with us as we got our Stardon spotlight on him.
Q:If you had a corporate job what would it be?
A: Personal styling, because I know my fashion and I would use this knowledge to my advantage in helping people look their best.
Q: The most favourite campaign you have worked on?
A:Hmmmm, collaboration with emirate airlines, I get free first class flights with them.
Q: What is one item in your wardrobe or wash bag, you cant live without?
A: My lip bam, I use Carmex. In my wardrobe it definitely has to be my Yeezys, they are the most comfortable shoes ever. You can see Ways to style your yeezys here.
Q: Favourite holiday destination?
A: I love Kuwait, but the downside is you can't buy alcohol because they do not sell it anywhere, so for this reason, it has to be Dubai.
Q: As an influencer, what inspires your style?
A: Other people. I always look out for what people wear for inspiration, then I try to recreate the look in my head and try to make it look better if I can. I look at what people on the street wear, I feel it is quite important. I also love to mix and match patterns and colours.
Q: If you have to delete every app on your phone except for 3, what would you keep?
A: Instagram, WhatsApp and facetune (laughs hysterically).
Q: If you have to leave one advice for anyone reading this, what would it be?
A: Live your life, believe in yourself and don't let negative energy affect you.
