Hi, my name is: Lourens Loux Gebhardt, but you can call me Loux. I am: A dream chaser who loves figures (the ones you audit) and fashion. You could call my style: Sophisticated punk – it’s a mix of vintage and class. My style icon is: Lino Ieluzzi, the flamboyant owner of Italian tailoring house Al Bazar in Milan. I love the vida brand because: It brightens up my day. I cannot start a day without good coffee. I first started blogging: About four years ago. You can find me at www.louxthevintageguru.tumblr.com or @louxthevintageguru on Instagram. On weekends you’ll find me: Driving around the city looking for mood-board inspirations for my designs or having coffee at the vida in The Grove Mall. If I could attend any fashion gathering it would be: Milan or New York Fashion Week. Has social media changed the way we look at fashion? It’s changed the way we dress immensely. In the past we didn’t know what trendsetters in New York and Paris were wearing or how to put an outfit together. Now you can access that information instantly. Any advice for other fashion bloggers? Remain focused, chase your dreams, do what you love and let’s continue inspiring others through our blogs. four
