Angela's Eye

Angela Wisniewski is a great fashion explorer, who has an excellent web site called Angela's Eye, where she updates us on latest fashion and gives us valuable tips. Angela works for WDIV/Local 4 Channel in Detroit, MI. She has a great personality which made it a lot of fun to do an interview with her. You can check it out for yourself...

What do you do in your job?

Well I run AngelasEye.com, a motor city style, culture & shopping site. So basically I drink a lot of coffee, take a lot of pictur
es, kinda live on the web and shop. All day, every day.

What does your career involve?

See answer one. And add video.

How did you get into fashion industry?

I don't know that I'm necessarily "in the fashion industry." I've always gravitated toward fashion and style, so I just went with it as much as I could 'round these parts.

How do you keep in touch with the latest fashion?

The web, mags and my friends.

How did you get to work with WDIV/ LOCAL 4?

Although my site is named after me, WDIV is my employer. So I'm in the station all the time, but I'm the girl tucked upstairs who dresses weird. Ford is my sponsor, but I'm employed by a Post-Newsweek Station.

I see you work with Real Detroit Weekly magazine, what work do you do for them?

I used to work with them. I got my start as an intern there writing about a bunch of Detroit stuff, most of which was fashion/style related. I did the 'All Dolled Up' column for a long time.

What do you enjoy about your work?

All of it! The immediacy of the Internet is rather bizarro, though, but I'm getting used to it.

What is your working environment like?

Well it's not exactly a fashion mecca, that's for sure!

What are you most proud of in your career?

Hmm ... probably snagging a great job with such a substantial company within a few months of graduating college.

What skills are needed for a job like yours?

Good looks. Ha! I kid, I kid. Hmm ... patience and a thick skin? Do those count?

How do you promote yourself?

I don't, really. I'm pretty sure some commercials run on Channel 4, though, I've yet to see one myself. It seems like everyone else has but me!

How do you stay motivated?

Coffee, big dreams and hater-blocking.

What would you like to see yourself doing in future?


Where did you find out about Brock/and or Vividbraille?

I've known Brock since he kicked off the company. it's good to see he's doin' what he's doin'. I know things can be frustrating around here.

Where can people find you?

AngelasEye.Com, all over ClickOnDetroit.Com and bouncing between events, bars and boutiques in the city.
