Christopher from CHRISTOPWHO also check his lookbook : "My name is Christoph, I'm 21 years young and I'm currently living in Munich, Germany. I'm using the word "currently" because I really love to travel a lot. Unfortunately I had to settle down for a while because of my studies at university, which is what I'm doing right now. It's my dream however to become a fashion and documentary photographer one day. I want to make a living of what I love doing the most - taking pictures. "
When did you first fall in love with fashion ?
I've somehow always been interested in aesthetics and therefore also fashion. Even when I was a child I always wanted everything to look good.
It's almost an obsession.
What inspired you to start your own blog?
I actually started my blog as a street style blog back in the days, posting pictures I took of well dressed and interesting people. Then a friend told me about Lookbook.nu and I started to post photos of my own style there, which kind of inspired me to change my blog into a mix of street style/personal style blog. Since then it has changed a lot and my photography has really improved. Today my blog is a fashion photography / travel diary / personal style blog I'd say.
