Malvika’s passion for fashion and beauty started at the mere age of 4. As a college student, her passion led her to start her own Youtube channel and blog, StylebyMalvika, where she features outfit ideas, unboxing videos, and the latest 101 on fashion and beauty trends. As someone who defines her style as “old-world classic”, Malvika has found her niche in the beauty and fashion industry. Read on more to find out about Malvika:
1. Why did you start your own blog and youtube channel?
Ever since I could remember, my interests and passions lied in fashion. From age 4, until now, I have had the same dreams of one day having a reputable position within the fashion industry where my voice is heard and opinion is valued. This yearning, coupled with my growing education in Marketing, was my inspiration for starting my blog, and I am so happy I did because it takes me one step closer to my dream. Plus, I get to inspire people along the way!
2. If you have to summarize your personal style in fashion and beauty what would it be?
My personal style is old-world classic, which is a bit different from what people would typically classify as “vintage.” I like to think of myself as someone who uses her mother and grandmother’s philosophies around style and tweaks these just enough to reflect modern trends. I firmly believe the way you dress can impact the way you feel throughout the day. When I dress everyday, I do so in a way that would make me feel empowered to stay driven.
3. How do you balance college work/life while running a both a blog and youtube channel?
Balancing this is a tough ordeal, especially since there is a high volume of fashion/beauty content creators that create at such a high velocity. I try to stick to a schedule of posting 2-3x per week on my blog, posting 2x per day on Instagram, and once a week on the Youtube channel. It’s certainly a lot of effort, and sometimes when your audience isn’t responsive, it’s easy to lose motivation. I try my best to keep myself motivated by reminding myself that what I’m doing is, beyond just a passion, for the sake of my childhood dreams.
4. Any tips for other bloggers?
My 3 tips for other bloggers would be to persevere no matter what, not be afraid to be vulnerable, and remember that they have something unique to offer that no other blogger does–they just have to find out what it is.
5. Where do you see your channel and blog 3 years from now?
The future is so uncertain. Especially when it comes to the internet, content is either quite hidden or else totally viral. Because of this, I cannot say with any certainty where I see my blog in 3 years, but I can say that I hope to see myself in a reputable position in the fashion industry where I can either work at or with certain luxury brands. I’m very much into fashion magazines/journalism as well as marketing, so my dream job would either be to work at VOGUE as an editor or else do marketing for Dior. And, I’m hopeful that whatever position I get within the industry will help me grow my blog by providing me with inspiration for newer and more appealing content.
We hope that Malvika reaches her dream job of working as an editor for Vogue one day!! Don’t forget to check her blog and channel out:
