Aesthetic interview with Thea
Please introduce yourself in 2-5 sentences.
My name is Hanz Anthea Iléne Kong Mendiola, but my friends call me Thea. I live in the Philippines, and I'm a young and passionate artist/influencer.
I started drawing when I was roughly around 6 years old, and I still enjoy making art to this day. Overall, I'm a pretty free-spirited person who enjoys the company of others.
What made you start creating content on social media?
It all started in May 2017 when I started seeing “aesthetic” posts on my explore page. To be honest, I found it odd at first to see pictures of a Kanken bag lying on grass or pictures of pastel socks on a bed. I remember thinking, “Why were these getting so many likes?” but I eventually got around it and found them pretty cool, which resulted in me creating content on IG. I will never forget the people who really got me inspired: @92mlk (Jackie), @sovbean (soyeon), @f.petal (callam), and @artsypeach (noor).
What do you think are the current and future trends in fashion?
Let’s be real here - fashion more or less repeats itself. I think the trends of today are just modernized versions of the 80s, 90s, 00s fashion. Trends come and go, so we never really know what comes next.
Is fashion a true art form?
I agree, that in some sense, fashion is a form of art because I believe fashion is a way of expressing yourself as an individual.
What's your biggest goal as a creator/blogger?
I want to take this opportunity to inspire the people in my community and influence them positively.
Do you want to mention anything else?
We wish you all possible success, thanks for this interview!
