The world of Fashion can be challenging at times if, as a creative, you’re not living in the major fashion cities of the world. Thankfully, with today’s online world, it’s much easier to connect with people doing great things despite their location. We recently found Eda Onay’s beautiful blog, Fashion Wonderer, and chose to sit down with the 19-year-old editor and graphic design artist to hear about what it’s like working from a small town in Turkey, and, her hopes for the future.
Tell us a little bit about yourself, how old are you? Where are you from? Do you study? How did you get into graphic design and editing?
I’m 19 years old and from Antalya, Turkey. I finished high school and enrolled in a university but had to give a break before I started due to my surgery – I’ll be starting my school this September. Believe it or not, I’ve been into this graphic design stuff since I was 8 years old! It was because I discovered a site called blogcu.com which allows you to create your own blog like WordPress or Blogspot. Everyone on that site was interested in graphic design; we all were doing edits, templates, gifs, PNGs etc. So, since then, I haven’t lost my interest in graphic design and always worked on my skills to this date.
