Natalie at Jeepers Peepers HQ caught up with Berlin street style influencer Michael to find out about his journey becoming insta-famous.
How did you start your journey as an online influencer?
It all started about a year ago. I had to wear a lot of suits because of my job. At first they just looked boring to me, but after a while I created my own style. I had a lot of fun trying different styles and putting new outfits together, and to be honest I was quite good at it. So I started my journey by taking a lot of outfit pictures and posting them on instagram.
Top tip you would give to someone who wants to start fashion blogging?
Be authentic. You shouldn't care about what other people think, just do you. Create and evolve your own style, don't be afraid to try something new. Enjoy the journey!
Holy grail fashion item you can’t live without?
That's a hard one... I'd say a good pair of shoes. Shoes are an everyday necessity, so the quality of them is really important to me.

Favourite city of all time? Howcome?
Right now I'd say my home town Berlin, because I was born and raised here. But I'm just starting to explore the world so we'll see.
What do you plan for the future of ‘michael_ehlers_’?
I honestly don't know but I plan to be one of the most influential bloggers around the world and to inspire a lot of people, not only fashion wise but also about my morals and my way of looking at things.
