When you start creating a new set, where do you begin?

When I start creating a new set, I usually begin with a picture or inspiration from Pinterest and go from there.

Do you have any advice for others looking to improve their creative process?

For others looking to improve their creative process, my best advice is most importantly be yourself and be unique and experiment. Don't give up!

What is your dream job?

My dream job is to do something with art and creativity.

What is your actual job?

I am in my first year of college and I'll be majoring in graphic design.

How long have you been creating/designing sets?

I've been creating designing sets for 1 or 2 years. I started on Polyvore and designed for a year, then after it got shut down I found ShopLook after a few months. I was very grateful and happy to have found ShopLook where I can keep designing sets and do what I love. I love the feeling of getting to show who I am through the sets I create. At the same time, I love to look at other wonderful creators’ boards. I got inspired by my love for art and fashion from Pinterest, YouTube and ShopLook.
