They have worked with a number of high profile brands in their adventure to become top influencers. Let us learn more about their journey from sharing their life to making social media a huge part of what they do!
My name is Henry J Wade, 26, a London Fashion & Lifestyle Influencer. I began my journey blogging and creating content seriously only in August 2017 and since then have worked with brands such as SuperDry, Braun, Lyle & Scott, Beefeater Gin, Police Lifestyle, Moss Bros, Asos, JD Official.
I have a passion for portraying a positive lifestyle and believe if people can workout, dress well, eat good but also enjoy the fruits of life then they will have a healthy and balanced life and live it to the fullest!
My Name is William Wade and I am a 26 year old Identical twin living in London. I have a real passion for all things Fashion, Fitness and general Lifestyle. I have only been doing content creation and blogging since August 2017 and since then I have worked with some awesome brands such as: SuperDry, Jd Sports, PHD Nutrition, Lyle & Scott, Paul Hewitt, Rayban and many more.
Why I have chosen Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle, well I believe if you dress well & look good then that will make you more confident. Train hard & smart then you will have not only a healthy body but also a healthy mind. Live a fun and healthy lifestyle as it's always good to visit new things, drink that drink and eat that pizza.
How did you guys start Instagram?
As Instagram started we both began our Instagram journey not to make money but to just post our everyday lives of random shots of coffee, food and the occasional selfie. We realised we were following the everyday movements of random people who styled well and lived a pretty awesome lifestyle and wanted to do the same and never understood how.
We always had this passion for style and fashion so we began to post our photos on social media and Instagram whilst living in Australia which started to pick up some great traction. We bought a small Canon Camera and started to showcase some of our outfits and take our Instagram game slightly more seriously.
What does social media/Instagram mean to you?
Social media means different to many people. To some it is a communication tool, others it’s for scrolling, to some it’s showcasing the good times and for others it can be a platform to showcase your brand/business. Each Instagram user has their own vision and ways of using it to develop their personal brand or business. To us it is a powerful tool to showcase our lifestyle and promote our personal brand.
Any interesting encounters through social media?
Not necessarily, although it has become a great platform for networking, we have collaborated with brands and networked to create strong relationships.
What are your 3 favorite pieces of clothing to travel with?
After travelling the entire length of Australia and all of South East Asia we both had to pack our lives into a rucksack. In terms of fashion this was a struggle as most people wear vests, old trainers and elephant pants from Thailand. To remain relatively styled and not like every other traveller we found going back to basics our biggest asset.
These 3 items put together create a smart/casual look and can be worn to most occasions whilst being relatively light and comfortable. Replace the Tee for a white cotton shirt for a slightly smarter attire and for warmth pack a denim jacket. It just depends on the occasion.
