Style Appreciation: Shunelle Porcine
Shunelle is a fashion blogger and art student at Savannah College of Art and Design. Pictured above she is modeling her very own design. A BOMB patch denim skirt filled with all the things us girls adore, distress, bleaching, and zippers!!! The detailing is intricate, yet she makes it look so easy with her fresh styling approach. Her excellence in presentation has definitely inspired me, read her interview below and get inspired too!
“ Fashion is something I'm very passionate about. It's an extension of who I am as a person because you are what you wear. I want people to know who I am loud and clear and I try to show that through my work as a designer and a style blogger. I'm actually attending SCAD to turn my passion into a good paying career. It is a lot of work, but I still try to do my own projects on the side besides the ones assigned to me by my professors. I have to exercise my creativity as much as possible.”
1. What inspired you to start a fashion blog and what keeps you going?
I actually started my first blog in high school because of this really amazing blogger named Chriselle Lim. I'm on her site everyday and I watch all her YouTube videos. When I started my first blog I was very impatient and everything was a mess. I wanted everything right away. When I grew some patience and realized that time well spent brings out good work, I started "The Broke Art Student,” which is the blog I have now. Chriselle is still on the top of my bloggers list because of her aesthetic and her presentation. I want to be on her level so bad! Honestly, my friends are my BIGGEST supporters! I am so blessed because if it wasn't for their encouragement I would just quit. But we all support each other. They gas me all the time so it makes me want to do more.
2. Describe your style in three words.
I'm not sure I can. It changes all the time depending on my mood.
3. How long have you been designing?
Not that long. I'm fairly new to it. But I'm always sketching, always coming up with ideas; I've been drawing since I was able to write. My creations have only just started coming to life. I believe my first real creation was 2 years ago when I was a freshman at SCAD.
4. As artists we are always evolving, always looking to better ourselves. What is one area of growth you are most looking forward to?
It doesn't hurt at all to grow in all areas. I like being a well rounded person. But I really would like to grow as far as the quality, the structure and complexity of my designs. I want to be able to even make the subtlest of details the most beautiful.
5. Who/what inspires you?
Everything around me inspires me. Other bloggers inspire me. I just like to pull inspiration from different things. For me, it’s just looking for something deeper than what's on the surface.
