Worldwide fashion

Have you always thought that only London, Paris, Milan and New York were fashion capitals? Well, forget everything. The interest of the fashion has focused in cities like Dubai, Copenhagen, Kolkata, Berlin, Tokyo and Hong kong. This happened thanks to globalization, which fortunately did not compromise the differences between the different cities.

Rule #1: fashion is fun-filled

Fashion has always been a game for me. As a child I used to dress up my barbie with ribbons or fabric pieces. I often secretly used to took my mother's fashion magazines and then hid myself somewhere in my home, looking at all those sparkling dresses and beautiful models.
Perhaps it is for this reason that I cannot stand when someone, knowing my love for fashion, stick up his nose. Fashion doesn't mean ruthless competition or anorexic models. In Italian, for example, moda comes from the latin word modus, that means way. That is the way of being of each of us, which is inevitably also reflected in the way we dress.

Les Turbans: the new etno-chic style

I have always considered turbans and scarves as something extraordinary. With them you can completely change your look into something very chic, without forgetting that they can be very practical to tie your hair up and protect your head in the summer heat.
There are many ways to wear them: as a diva or a desert princess, you just have to choose.

Even if today is Thursday, I'd like to say that I really love Mondays because they’re my days at fashion school. Before that I had never imagined how can be difficult to draw an evening dress. My mind was totally empty. So my teacher said me to research evening dresses on the net or in the library. She want seven drawings of evening dresses, better if with ruffles and drapes. I always thougth “Less Is More” but, I admit, if you consider Oscar dresses or something similar, maybe it’s not the right quote.
I Have found more than a hundred images about evening dresses and details, here there’s a selection of them. If you are interested you can also visit my page on Pinterest and see them all.

OLD FRIENDS: the dungarees

The dungarees was invented by Mr. Levi Strauss in the second half of the XIX century as workwear.
Since then Levi's has become one of the most important companies in the business of denim clothing, while dungarees acquired increasing importance in the history of fashion becoming a key garment in the fashion of the 70s.
Sometimes old friends come back, as in the case of the dungarees that strongly returned both in haute couture and in street style.

What about sneakers?

It’s April, And all of us are obsessed by bathing suit test. The best thing to is to eat vegetables and fruit, without forgetting to go for a run or to go to the gym. And then not only the sneakers came back as an important item of clothing,  but you can also get fit with the shoes that you customized by yourself...  Is there anything better than that?
Nike and New Balance are Currently offering this option, you only have to go on their site and enjoy it!

(And when you'll be tired of running, don't worry! You can also use them everyday, instead of those beautiful but terribly painful heels).

Inspiration #1

I think inspiration is the most magic sensation a man can feel, what triggers a creative process. Something that can arise in all of us.

The instinct is telling us that it's better if we do not eat popcorn for breakfast, but it is also what lets us create wonderful things.
