WHY BLOGGING?

i got into fashion by pure coincidence. i started out with a news blog with one of my friends. as i grew up, i started to gain much more interest in the fashion world and so i decided to create my own blog to incorporate fashion and style.

 

WHY FASHION?

I love that the fashion world has the ability to always renew itself, how it allows people to express themselves through it. I also love the diversity of fashion, and the way trends can be in and out in a matter of days.

 

fashion inspiration?

I am a huge fan of the new wave of designers such as Virgil Abloh. I love the way he mixes street wear and high fashion. I also love Alessandro Michele, his style is amazing and decadent.

 

TALK TRENDS.

I think 2017 is going to be all about natural colors and simple designs, like Mitchell Evan!

 

CLOSET STAPLE.

My leather jacket. I got it from a gothic shop at Camden Market in London.

 

NEW favorite piece.

the black and white Overcoat. It's simple in appearance and therefore can go with many looks, yet its fit and design are complex and create beautiful lines. And of course the Taz T-Shirt. it goes with nearly everything because of its color and fits perfectly. The fabric is soft while not losing its shape. I also have washed it many times and it stays intact. 

 

TREND YOU'RE OVER.

Stan Smith shoes.

 

MOST FASHIONABLE CITY.

Paris of course! All trends come from here.

 

TOP THREE STORES.

Collette in Paris, Selfridges in London, and Barneys in New York City!
