Who are you and what do you do for living?
I’m Frederique, a 31 y/o self-employed young lady with a passion for fashion, social media and veganism. I work as a content creator, both visual and copy. Also I’m a freelance social media manager and I’m currently writing my first book, an autobiography about my past with and eating disorder and depression. So my current job situation is actually a little bit of everything.
How would you describe your own style?
I would say it’s colorful casual with an edgy and feminine twist. I don’t like wearing bold prints that much, I rather go for a bunch of different fabrics to make my outfit more interesting. Think of silk on faux leather and knitwear teamed with cotton. I also really like pastel colored combo’s, especially in summer.
Where or from which women do you get your inspiration from?
My passion for fashion came from my mother and grandmother. When I was younger my mother was my biggest fashion inspiration for sure. Currently I obviously get to see a lot of inspiring looks on my social media feeds, as well as on the streets of Rotterdam or the other places I’m traveling to. I have an eye and real weakness for people that dress differently. I find that so empowering, truly inspiring. To me fashion really is a reflection of who you are as a person.
How do you wish to inspire other women?
That’s a difficult question, I would say I wish to inspire other women with not only sharing my strengths but also my weaknesses. To me a strong woman is a woman who’s not afraid of being vulnerable. Not afraid to share struggles, doubts and worries. Vulnerability truly is strength. I think I have made it a life goal to show others what’s the use of being more vulnerable and the good that that can bring to both your life and the life of others.
