An Interview with me by Brent Luvaas from Urban Fieldnotes

Last week I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Brent Luvaas, an anthropologist and blogger from Philadelphia, USA. Brent is using his blog as a platform for street style blogging as well as doing research for his ongoing project "Street Style 2.0: New Media and the New Politics of Fashion".

This was my first live skype interview and quite a bit more challenging, but also a lot more fun than being interviewed by email. 

Take a look: Interview with Michelle Oberholzer of Cinder & Skylark

Also check out his blog for Philadelphia street style and an interesting point of view on the world of street style blogging and fashion.
