Blogger Bazaar in the capital of Germany last Sat was amazing. Berlin  just  got promoted for  ‘the most friendly  European fashion capital’. There is no doubt that London has a lot more to offer (in terms of fashion opportunities) but there is not much more to  be done  for the young graduates and  beginners in the field of fashion (that includes fashion design , photography , styling ). Despite the fact that the city claims to patronize young newcomers it unfortunately feels like they,fashion VIPS, have already developed their own aesthetics , style and very strict rules . I am…

The beautiful summer slowly comes to an end leaving us with the average of 20 degree and the last bits of sun. It’s time to start re-arranging the summer wardrobe and replace crop tops with long-sleeve tees , shorts with skinny jeans and so on. The(almost) past season’s trends were adorable ! White pieces with a hint of everything – from fruit prints to 90’s inspired  oversized garms. They will surely be ready to be used next year but they ,the way I see it, should be put back in the closet for the time period between October and April…

There are no rules in the fashion game right now especially when it comes to the fashion prints of 2014. Although I am a fan of the classic look I just love to experiment with the prints and different styles sometimes. Our decade is going to be full of fashion surprises! I mean following trends are  inspired by the 70’s , 80’s and the 90’s all together . It surely must be some sort of a crazy combination with a lot of choices for everyone. Today’s outfit , for example, is a mix of romantic/artistic mood , 80’s and 90’s(Birkenstocks)….

It probably won’t be a surprise that architecture is the greatest source of inspiration for not only fashion designers but stylists , fashion bloggers and , according to my observations , many other creative fields including photographers , choreographs and make up artists. Taking an inspiration from an architecture does not neccessarily mean very popular (on the Parisian catwalk) skyscraper shapes but the colour palette and mood which is not always that obvious. My favourite places to take an idea from are romantic Catalan alleyways or Lisbon’s Alfama but I’ve found my Himmel here in  Berlin’s Friedrichshein, too! It’s the…

Being in Berlin for over the summer means getting a chance to see the fashion week’s events. Once again  the designers showcasing in Germany didn’t fail to present something new and eye catching. Berlin’s contemporary fashion scene is different to the main  European fashion cities such as London or Paris. Not everything goes in here , it’s more edgy and I wouldn’t say trend orientated. While the streets were full of very well-dressed people from all around the world , the showrooms and catwalk’s were filled with unexpected ideas such as 3D prints (and by 3D I mean the 3D…
