5 MINUTES WITH: SHIVANI CHAVDA - INTERVIEW!17:10
As you all know, I have been screaming about Shivani Chavda, fashions hottest new designer of the moment! The lucky girl has managed to bag her self a lovely internship with Warehouse and have her collection sold in their stores! She recently had a launch party in Warehouse's flagship store in London and I was honoured that she invited me to attend!
It was a lovely night with a good atmosphere, DJ's, champagne overflowing, free manicures, this party was indeed a night to remember for Shivani! The model she used in the campaign also attended to support, it was so lovely to see Shivani constantly smiling from ear to ear.
5 Minutes with Shivani Chavda:
Tolu: Hi Shivani! What has your favourite piece out of all of your collection got to be?
Shivani: My Chiffon maxi! Because it took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to make! Well, all of my collection took a lot of blood, sweat and tears but THIS one took the most!
T: Who is your favourite designer?
S: Well... I change them a lot! However Roberto Cavali is my favourite! He is the most inspirational, also an influence to my collection and someone I look up to. I wouldn't mind going to live and work Italy for him, you can come to visit!
T: What are you wearing today?
S: My chiffon maxi!
T: Do you have any advice for people wanting to get into the design industry?
S: It sounds cliche but I would say to work hard, be prepared to give up a lot, be prepared to not go out as much and to sacrifice a few things. Don't box yourself in and open urself up to new things.
T: Choose three words to describe your journey with Warehouse?
S: Exciting, insightful, memorable!
T: And finally, what do u wish to do after your internship?
S: Get a job! That would be nice (laughs)

I love Shivani, she is such a cheerful person to be around!
As the night went on she insisted that I tried on a few of her pieces from her collection so I helped my self to a few pieces that she recommended!
My favourite have got to be these trousers! What are your's? Love Tolu x
