“Tendances de Mode”

I can honestly say that Coco is one of the five bloggers who made me want to start an online blog/magazine. Her site is informative, well written, and feels professional with a touch of personal attention. And for me, having my home in the USA, her blog (written in French) provides me a window into fashion interests and culture as seen by a wonderfully talented and articulate young woman.
Here is her URL: http://www.tendances-de-mode.com/
I had the pleasure of interviewing her recently:

Who is Coco, what is Tendances de Mode, and how did you get the idea to launch this blog?

I am a young, 31year old woman with a background in fashion design, married and now mother of our little Charles. I created Tendances de Mode with my husband seven years ago. The goal was, at first, to create an encyclopedia of fashion and to offer a instructive vision of fashion. The concept then evolved and morphed into following the latest news, analyzing fashion trends, and providing personalized advice.
