Meet Kiri Yanchenko of Fashion Blender: Not Your Average Fashion Blogger

Fashion Blender is one such blog that no matter what external forces are at play, it is a pretty safe bet that nothing will ever have the ability to really affect its essence, rock its core or destroy its inner soul.

There are a number of fashion blogs that seem to spout the same mundane opinions on mainstream fashion that it can be a task in itself sorting through the mountain of drivel to get to the really good stuff. And then there are fashion blogs that are undiscovered hidden gems because they push the avant garde boundaries that when you find them, you wonder whether sharing your discovery will tarnish its creative innocence and alter its very being.

Fashion Blender is one such blog that no matter what external forces are at play, it is a pretty safe bet that nothing will ever have the ability to really affect its essence, rock its core or destroy its inner soul.

What makes one fashion blog stand out whilst another continues to remain a proverbial wallflower? What it all really boils down to is the personality behind the blog. It comes as no surprise then that Fashion Blender is the brain child of Kiri Yanchenko, a fashion graduate with qualifications in Visual Arts, Graphic Design and Fashion Styling from The Australian College of Professional Styling.

Kiri is a breath of fresh air in a sea of blogger monotony. It seems extremely apt that her name is as unique as her views on fashion. And unlike other bloggers, Kiri is not just a 'wear-this-with-that' blogger nor does she promote a particular fashion label to the point of absolute bias. No, she actually enjoys connecting with her followers and readers, not subscribing to the 'follow-me-and-I'll-follow-you-back' mentality which is a rarity in the fashion scene.

One of the other things that sets her apart from the average style blogger is that she is so completely unpretentious it's almost like you're in the presence of a bestie - one who is unabashedly hopeful, extremely supportive and super sweet. Wonderful traits to possess considering that Kiri advises and provides wardrobe and style consultation to fashion brands as well as private individuals.

Hailing from one of Australia's fashion capitals, Sydney, you get a sense of her love of designer labels as soon you meet her. Not only is she immaculately dressed from head to toe, a quality many Sydney siders have, but she lacks the fashion ego, which is replaced with an abundance of humility, grace and dignity. She may be a product of Sydney's notorious fashion scene but she is neither pretentious or phony. Kiri is just much too endearing for that.

When Kiri is not busy with her styling work, she can often be found sitting with her laptop and smart phone inspired by the current smorgasbord of runway fashion and spouting her views through a variety of social media including Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Kiri absolutely believes that individuals can speak volumes without saying one word just through their choice of clothing. If you aren't sure of the message you are trying to convey through your clothing, she will help you to harness it. Her blog is a testament to this. Through Fashion Blender, she explores fashion through the eyes of an artisan and adds the right words to them, harnessing the great ideas of fashion but articulating them in way that makes it palatable to the wider audience.

Fashion Blender is lauded for its ability to harmoniously combine fashion, design, art, photography and lifestyle in a way that manifests itself onto a higher blog plane. Weaving brands, images, colours, patterns, outfits and ideas in a way that doesn't overpower but subtly suggests is the blogs' strength. It is a veritable feast of artistic concepts that allows you to breathe in the style culture deeply, reminding you that although you may have taken shallow breaths and briefly glimpsed it, you really didn't understand it. Until now.
