Get to know Annemiek Kessels, the mind behind our favourite style-inspiration Instagram account, Mode D'amour!
I live in a small town in the south of The Netherlands. It’s actually quite boring but my family lives here. I still think about moving abroad all the time but haven’t made the decision yet!
WHAT DID YOU STUDY?
I studied Styling for one year at the Fashion Academy in Amsterdam but didn’t finish it. I was still young and I worked full time, studied and I was also blogging so it was too much for me at the time.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOB & MODE D’AMOUR!
Mode D’amour started as a hobby and a way to share my style and inspirations about 11 years ago. I could have never imagined back then all the amazing opportunities and things I’ve achieved along the way!
TYPICAL DAY IN YOUR LIFE?
I don’t have a typical day, I always decide in the morning how my day is going to be if I don’t have any work or appointments. I do try to stay balanced, I love to spend my free time walking with my dog and enjoy the little things in life.
FAVOURITE TRAVEL DESTINATIONS?
Italy. Until last year I spend most of my holiday’s in Paris. Last year I went to Rome for the first time and I plan to go back to Italy again this year! I do have a major travel wish list, which includes New York and Australia on top of the list!
FAVOURITE PEOPLE TO FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM?
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?
The internet (of course!), runway shows, I love searching for inspirational photos to share on my inspiration account @mode.damour, the streets, movies, design and architecture.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR MODE DAMOUR?
I never know, I don’t like to ‘plan’ things up front, I will just see where it takes me!
FAVOURITE NAKEDVICE PIECE?
The Leon Snake! It’s perfect for Spring/Summer!
