Rebecca Botin Wears Tabitha Webb
Effortlessly Stylish Rebecca Botin Talks With Tabitha Webb
Rebecca Botin is the definition of a cool girl; she's talented, stylish and a cutting edge street style photographer.
We were delighted when Rebecca agreed to step in front of the camera for us and share her career secrets in this exclusive interview.
TABITHA WEBB: Where are you from? How did you come to live in London
REBECCA BOTIN: I was born in Italy and grew up in Denmark, with my parents and two sisters. I moved from Denmark to London in the spring of 2014 together with my boyfriend. We moved so that he could pursuit an MBA degree and start up his business afterwards, and so that I would have improved conditions to consider a career change. For me, London offers more opportunities within the creative fields that I am passionate about, such as fashion, photography, social media and networking in general.
TW: How did you get into photography?
RB: From an early stage, I always liked to draw and paint, which I still do, but as the years went by I found it quite time-consuming, so when the combination of Instagram and camera phones occurred it was the perfect recipe for me to express my creative side in a more dynamic way. When we moved to London, I was very fascinated and intrigued by the Instagram community here, where random people meet up, connect and share, and that is how I got inspired to start photographing on a daily basis with my iPhone and post it on social media. My boyfriend gave me my first camera later that year, and ever since I’ve been shooting away, and eventually made a business out of my passion.
TW: How do you describe your style?
RB: For everyday life, I like comfortable clothing and fabrics without too many colours, preferably black or earthy colours. My style is a combination of boho chic and relaxed formal, and to dress up I wear heels and accessories. As you can see, I do have a lot of tattoos, another way of expressing my creative side, so I tend to dress accordingly so I don’t have too much noise and patterns on me. I guess I use my tattoos as my accessories.
TW: How does your work influence what you wear?
TW: Which gorgeous bloggers have you worked with? Any favourite shoots you’d like to share with us?
I already have a lot of shoots lined up with new bloggers for 2016. If you look at my Instagram, you can see the photos and list of collaborations and clients I have had so far, including the various bloggers and brands.
TW: What are your top tips for someone looking to take the perfect outfit shot for Instagram?
TW: You see street style all the time and shoot the best fashionistas, what should we be investing in right now?
TW: How do you accessorise dresses for day and for evening?
TW: What trends are you seeing for SS16 that you are looking forward to?
TW: Tell us about your blog and tell us what’s next?
Rebecca Botin Top Tabitha Webb Picks:
- TABITHA WEBB MEG – NAVY As seen on the photos, I liked this very feminine and classy dress. I wore it with black heels, loose hair and some simple accessories.
- TABITHA WEBB INSTYLE AMY DRESS As earlier mentioned, I like black, so this dress would work for me for both day and evening events either with ballerinas or heels and a more colourful handbag to go with it.
- TABITHA WEBB THE TRIXIE DRESS – CREAM & BLACK I like the cut of the dress, the colour combination and the cute black details on the sleeves. This dress could be used both for day and evening depending on how you accessorise it.
