The latest in the Meet Motel series sees us getting all social with Social Media & Promotions Marketer, Selina.
How long have you worked for Motel?
I’ve worked at Motel for almost two years, watching Motel Rocks become the must-have fashion destination it is today! I was a member of the original Street Team while I was at University as I wore Motel non-stop, so joining one of my favourite brands was so exciting! I’ve been working on all the social media platforms and with the world’s top fashion bloggers ever since.
What’s the best part about your job?
I absolutely love to see how our gorgeous customers style our items so it is super fun to look through the #motelrocks Instagram hashtag and read the lovely Facebook comments and tweets. I have been fashion blogging for over six years so working with fashion bloggers is like chatting to my friends, and hosting our parties is a ball! Collaborating with top beauty brands also means I can offer dream prizes for our fun competitions. I love to gossip with the fab Motel interns too!
Who is your ultimate style icon?
Every day I am inspired by fashion bloggers so my icons are the girls who style the hottest outfits from their own wardrobe.
Which is your all-time favourite Motel piece and why?
It would have to be the Zoe Dress – I have it in about 10 different prints! They are all bright and fun for the sunshine.
What are you currently listening to?
I just saw Girls Aloud on tour so they are my guilty pleasure, but this year I’m looking forward to seeing A$AP Rocky, Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar. I’m a Barb too – I love Nicki Minaj!
And the worst?
I spin many plates and my role involves lots of analysing and reporting, so it may not be as glamorous as people think!
What's coming in 2013 for Motel on Social Media?
We have some unbelievable competitions opening soon, with international prizes and lots of fun contests! We will be bringing you the freshest tutorials and styling features, and our fans will be even more involved with Motel.
How would you describe your own style?
I’m the girliest girl at Motel HQ so each day I would not be without a cute skater skirt and crop top! I am obsessed with cut-outs and off shoulder styles, adding quirky details to feminine shapes, and at night I’m all about the bodycon! I love sparkles, flowers and nail art.
Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to work in Fashion?
Start a fashion blog! If you are shy, style your favourite outfits on Polyvore or show off your writing style with articles; it all shows you have an active fashion interest. Make sure your own social media profiles are up to scratch, so get involved with Twitter and Pinterest, and intern as much as possible.
