African fashion is taking over the world. It has giving birth to many amazing fashion blogs. The Moroccan based Summum Cast Fashion Blog is one of them. We were lucky enough to checkup with the amazing young lady behind this blog. Here is the Stream Africa Interview with her.
- How was it like for you growing up in Morocco?
Growing up in Morocco is full of beautiful experiences and challenges too that push me to exceed myself. The big challenge is to have a strong personality, believe in yourself and believe in your passion to realize your dreams and goals in Morocco beyond taboos.
- How did you first get involved with blogging? And what inspired you to start your fashion blog?
Since I was child, I was fascinated by Media and fashion. My mom has been an addicted to fashion magazines which inspired me. Thus, on April 2011, I started blogging and I got my first baby which I named SUMMUM CAST. It is about fashion and modeling for men and women too.
- What do you want your readers to take from your blog posts?
I want that readers be informed of the latest trends and get answers to their questions about fashion and modeling by giving them advice. I am very welcome to receive all their questions by e-mails and respond them since I already receive many e-mails that push me to continue posting articles.
- What do you find most challenging about fashion blogging?
The most challenging thing is to post exclusive news and information different from others since there are many new blogs created every day.
- How would you describe your blog style?
Summumcast is created to inform and advise its readers. The blog transfers information though images and pictures that inspire the visitors because most readers aren’t necessarily ready to read long written texts.
- What do you do when you’re not working on your blog?
If I am not working on this blog, I work on another blog named InSakina “Interview by Sakina” where I post written interviews with celebrities. At the base, I am a student in communication and public relation, so I study when I am not working in my two blogs. Sometimes, I host fashion events in my free time.
- What would you say is the best thing a blogger can give to his reader?
The best thing to give to the readers is exclusive information served on a silver platter.
- What message do you have for all the young women who are looking to start a fashion blog like yourself?
Unfortunately, I think that to start a blog nowadays, you should find a new concept since there are many blogs that look like each other. My advice to all the young women is not to be discouraged if a few visitors are interested because working hard pays!
