5 minutes with: Zina from Fashion Vibe


Doing the rounds at the international fashion weeks lately has been Zina Charkoplia, the blogger behind Fashion Vibe.

Zina is an up-and-comer in the blogging industry and being based in Barcelona hasn’t stopped her accessorising with Australian brand, Colette by Colette Hayman. Check out the photos above to see her outfit styled with accessories fresh from Colette’s latest collection.

We also caught up with her for a quick chat to find out what a normal day looks like for her and what trend she wants to say goodbye to.

What’s a day in the life like as a fashion blogger?
Well, it depends on the day. When it’s Fashion Week I have to be on the run the whole day. Fittings, meetings, shows, meetings, events the whole day… every day.
