Micah Gianneli: an interview with this exceptional woman
Here is the interview that we could translate for you so that you can know his point of view on … his vision of things …
There are a lot of fashion bloggers out there. How do you stand out?
I like to stand out and I can do it because I have something different to offer. I think it is an advantage and it can give a level of confidence that would distinguish me while remaining versatile and faithful to a style .
In this case, mine is quite personal. Everyone has a style to show but it’s very difficult to identify, especially at the beginning and to classify that style at that time.
Micah Gianneli and the moment to believe strongly in oneself
That’s why you have to believe strongly in yourself. Know that I am not only blogger, as my readers and my pals from the media world do not stop to repeat it to me and to assure me. So at one point I started to believe in myself and the style I could offer to everyone in the virtual space.
How did you turn blogging into a business?
I was fortunate to have someone as business-minded as my partner Jesse to work with me throughout my career. This, along with my professional work helped to propel my personal brand and my blog.
Micah Gianneli is versatile
My background in fashion design, fashion design, artistic and creative direction, photography, post-production and website design has allowed me to combine these areas and my experience in each of these areas to transform the blog into more from just a “thing”.
I started blogging for love and I still love it, and more so now that I make money from my blog.
Is marketing something that comes naturally to you?
I worked in the fashion industry for a while and I always understood the necessity and importance of marketing. Everything I do now comes naturally to me. But that was obviously not the case before.
By staying in this game, doing what I have to do and what I can do right now, I become more and more confident that the brand I run is fine.
Micah Gianneli and his childhood dreams
What did you want to be when you were little?
I wanted to become a fashion designer. My mother created clothes for me, she conceived them and afterwards she made them. So I guess it’s in the genes. It’s always something I’d like to do.
I already had some design collaborations. But having my own label is something that I consider to continue as a dream and achieve in the not-too-distant future.
Micah Gianneli and his originality
You have a look and style very different from those of other bloggers. Is it a conscious movement?
It’s a mix of both – unconsciously I’m just doing my thing, but consciously I’m moving away from these stereotypes to focus on my own style.
Micah Gianneli and his preferences
What are your favorite looks on the blog?
For me, the new outfit or the current post must be better than the previous one! But to be honest, it’s hard to say because I’m never completely satisfied. At least I always have challenges and that makes sense when I want to move forward in my work.
Micah Gianneli as a professional
What is the best thing about your job?
In addition to the fact that I do not have a regular job, the best thing about what I do is to have complete creative and professional control. Every day is different, every experience is unique and I share everything with Jesse! I like having the freedom to run my own business as I want to work with whoever I want.
Micah Gianneli and his vision on love and business combined
For many, it might be difficult to have a boyfriend and a business partner. By the way, how are you guys?
[Laughs] We are like professional hustlers. We work very hard to maintain our relationship which is loving and professional at the same time. Everything is a question of synergy.
I’m creative, his strong point is business. We have been together for ten years all the same and so, if we have not managed to overcome our differences, we would have already had serious problems. However, it is not the case !
Micah Gianneli and aspirations in general
Who or what are your biggest inspirations?
I’m inspired by a lot of people and things, so it’s really hard to pin down. I’m never without music, something that inspires me a lot. Digital and social media also gives me a lot of inspiration, so when I browse my Tumblr or Instagram, I start having ideas.
What advice would you give to those who want to succeed while pursuing their dream?
Be fearless and take risks! Do not tell yourself that everything you do is necessarily stupid. All the same know that if you want the career or lifestyle you have always dreamed of, you have to leave the comfort zone.
Nothing extraordinary has ever been created in a comfort zone. When you succeed, you really understand what happiness is! But as it’s never easy, there is no success without knowing how to maintain success.
