My name is Chanel Ward, Editor of the style and travel blog Hip Candy, I'm a freelance writer based in New Orleans and contributor to LOCALEUR. I've been working in Digital Content and Media since 2006. My degree is in Fashion Design from FIDM Los Angeles, I've worked in wardrobe and I've dabbled in modeling and print work where I continue to showcase my own DIY designs on my blog. I enjoy creating and sewing stylish womenswear. I have an insatiable passion for travel, I love watching well written scripted tv and enjoying a great bottle of wine with friends. I'm a bargain shopper and a curly hair enthusiast. I was named as one of 225 Magazine's "People to Watch in 2008.
