1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?
I was born in a quaint village in Emmental, Switzerland (and yes, that’s where Emmentaler cheese comes from ☺.) I have lived in Poland, Ireland and London and went to University in Denmark and Sweden. Most recently, I returned from a year in India where I worked for the Akanksha Foundation, an organization that provides education and after-school activities for underprivileged children.
If you haven’t read about it yet, visit the Uniform Project (www.theuniformproject.com) which chronicles Sheena’s attempt to raise funds for Akanksha by wearing the same black dress for one year. I love her blog, and the lookbook of all the looks provides loads of inspiration on how to accessorize an outfit. I wish we had the pattern for her dress here on burdastyle….☺
