Vivi (@vivigripp) is a perfect example of a young woman who is passionate about fashion. It is obvious through her creativity and sense of style that we can see through her Instagram page, however what we don't see is that behind the scenes Vivi has been building a good professional background in fashion as well. Her main experience being was when she was working for Zalando where she had a chance to manage numerous campaigns for brands like Coach, Lacoste, Polo Ralph Lauren to name a few. In addition to her part time influencer job and working in fashion, education has been an important part in V's life which is why she is currently studying Luxury Management and Marketing at emLyon Business school to get her masters degree. The program is great as it allows Vivi to experience life in different countries as well as meet people from different backgrounds. So far she did a few months in Paris, now she is in London and soon she will be going to Shanghai. We will for sure be following her adventures and cannot wait to see the content she will share.
We first spotted Vivi as stylish girl on Instagram, which is a natural scenario nowadays. What's more amazing and important however, is to see that behind this young woman is a creative and hardworking girl who is on her way to make her dreams come true.
Vivi also shared with us that she has a big project coming up soon which she cannot share just yet, so stay tuned guys!
