Influencer spotlight of the week - Michael Joseph Hardwick
This has been a long time coming, but we finally caught the ever so busy and stylish creative London based mens fashion and lifestyle influencer Michael AKA @Michaeljosephhardwick at the recent Debenhams menswear AW19 preview. As usual he was sampling the latest in mens-fashion this season, it was the perfect opportunity to get him under our Stardon spotlight to learn more about him and the brands he loves.
Q: If you were to have one job for the rest of your life what would it be?
A: I am completely happy with where I am currently now, working at a leading digital marketing agency alongside being an Influencer on social media. However, I have always had a love with music, which you will see going forwards in my upcoming YouTube Channel. So probably travelling around the world making music. Music makes me happy. Q: The most favourite campaign that you have worked on as an influencer?
A: Probably my own campaign idea, 24 Days of Christmas. In short, it was a lot of different campaigns put into an advent calendar format, it allowed me to be really creative and set my own briefs with the brands I worked with. I worked mainly with brands I had developed a strong relationship with over the course of my first year as an Influencer on social media. Q: What one item in your wardrobe or wash bag you can live without?
A: Sequin blazers, black and white plain T shirts, smart black trousers, chunky trainers, jazzy trousers, need I say more?
Q:Favourite holiday destination?
A: It was probably Cyprus, where I enjoy many a family holiday. Top cool things to do in Cyprus.
Q: As an influencer, what inspires your style?
A: I kind of do my own thing and try to push the boundaries when it comes to Menswear. I'm not one to wear dull colours, I always want to stand out from the corwd. Q: If you have to delete every app on your phone except for three what would you keep? A: Instagram, Whatsapp and YouTube. Q: If you have to leave one advice for anyone reading this what would it be? -
A: Be yourself, not a shadow of somebody else. Theres already one of them, no one wants another.
