We met Coco Chandra through her Mom Lily, who is an intuitive healer and host of Lily TV. Coco is currently studying Fashion in Paris and is back in Vancouver for the summer. We are happy to have her in this photo shoot and got to learn lots about this young woman who is working her way up in the fashion world.
Sara: Who is your inspiration in life and why?
Coco: Sophia Amoruso is my inspiration because she believes that when the going gets tough, keep on going; she teaches that as long as you are learning during the journey, you can end up ahead even if it isn’t as successful as planned.
Sara: How has studying in Paris changed your perceptions about life?
Coco: Studying in Paris has shown me how differently everyone around the world lives. The different lifestyles and culture has been a really eye opening experience.
Sara: What do you do to stay focused and centred?
Coco: I try to keep my personal goals in mind and keep my mind focused on what I’m trying to achieve.
Sara: If you have any piece of advice for anyone trying to get into the fashion industry, what would it be?
Coco: Try to get as much experience in the field as you can and start finding connections for what you are looking for in an environment.
Sara: Lastly, what does Empowering Beauty Everywhere mean to you?
Coco: To me, it means that people should be able to feel confident and amazing in your own skin whether it’s a nice outfit or putting makeup on or styling your hair. There’s a sense of energy and accomplishment, that makes you feel empowered.
Look forward to sharing another inspiring interview with you next week.
All the best,
