Seldom do we come across Philippine fashion bloggers sporting a totally bold and different sense of style far from the usual getup we see on screen and magazines.
And even more seldom do we come across fashion bloggers advocating for something far deeper than the usual style tips and essentials.
All these on account for Kyna Gem, otherwise known as the High Heeled Hunter, unwaveringly showing the fashion world a whole different perspective to dressing up and at the same time instilling a timely reminder to her audience — “In today’s generation of the media taking part in dictating what’s asserted as beautiful and what’s considered otherwise, we tend to take it and pattern ourselves for what it is. We trap ourselves in little boxes and become limited. But here’s the truth: YOU ARE DIFFERENT, UNLIKE ANY OTHER, AND INFINITE — dress like it, and most importantly live like it.”
With her current thousands of followers (or “gal pals” as she’d like to call them) on Facebook, she stresses that she dreams to reach more people in order to encourage them to embrace their differences and uniqueness, hoping her stance of being different would expand from styling mismatching shoes on her personal blog to inspiring the world to do differently than what is presumed — to act in love instead of apathy, to share instead of hate; from changing fashion to changing the world.
All these, of course, driven by her calling from her Savior and Heavenly Father, her passion for fashion, her thirst for individuality, and her love for others. Kyna Gem not only inspires her readers to dress creatively and however they want with her style picks, #OOTDs, and not to mention, self-designed pieces (#DesignsByKyna), but also addresses a life issue avoided by most — have i been conforming to the ways of the world and being just like everybody else or have i been staying true to what I want and developing what it truly means to be myself?
The tandem of Kyna Gem’s fashion sense and personal advocacy will no doubt inspire more “gal pals” out there this year. The High Heeled Hunter is on the rise, and we can’t wait to see more. But for now, “HAPPY HUNTING!”
