Runway DIY is always one of our go-to blogs for incredibly chic projects. Arianna, the lovely girl behind the blog, creates trendy tutorials that mirror some of our favorite designer pieces – without breaking the bank! We adored the Prada-inspired midi skirt that she created when she was our Blogger of the Month so we wanted to see what Arianna has been up to. Check out her interview below!
How did you get started as a blogger and a DIYer?
I was making all of these projects anyway and deciding to share them was a big step for me. I just kind of took the plunge and started the site!
Where do you find inspiration for your DIYs?
I read every fashion magazine and I’m usually more interested in the ads than the content- that’s where you can find the most current and recognizable trends for the season. I also spend a lot of time on fashion blogs and style.com.
Which of your DIY projects is your favorite?
That’s tough! If I had to choose, it would probably be my DIY Celine Loafer Heels or my DIY Distressed Balmain Tee.
What advice would you give to DIY beginners?
Focus on quality! You don’t want to make something that feels like a costume. Hot glue is not always the answer.
What are your must-have DIY supplies?
Quick Stitch is an amazing glue for fabrics, needle and thread, very sharp scissors, eyelets, a bag of trims and ribbons, basic tools like a hammer etc. You can do so much without pro tools- I don’t even own a sewing machine!
