FASHION (NON)SENSE

Every human being is naturally drown to create, make something new, get inspired, get recognized by something. To me, all of those shapes and forms of new ideas are ART. It’s just a matter of nourishing them and making them better every single day or passing by them like they are common flower on the side of the road. The sense about life attracts every other form of sense, hence the fashion (non)sense.

 

For a fashion designer, two things are very important to me: fashion events and new trends. The changes that are new, the trends that are fresh, the style that is coming, all those things are important pieces of a creation and visualization. Every fashion designer is trying to be unique and authentic.

He/she has its own vision and it is not attracted to transience. That’s why every recognizable brand in the world became “famous” by its own pattern or mark, and by even mentioning their name, we can clearly remember their “stamp” in the fashion world. They are creating THEIR fashion. Every brand creates their own fashion. However, why do we see so many copies then? Is it a business decision or lack of ideas? What is more important – being creative and unique or being business-savy?

Having fashion sense is not a question of a luxury anymore. It is a our way of “silent” communicating with others, it is us sending message to the world about who we are and what we represent. Some people will notice and salute our way of styling, some will just make a comment, but for sure, it will not go unnoticed – if we have something to “say”. That’s why, I think, it is very important to be unique, to express our selves through fashion, to have our own ideas.!

For me, my greatest inspiration is traveling. To be able to see different cultures, experience their way of life for a day or two, their architecture, their colors, people… All of that fascinated me always. The crucial thing was the energy of the city and people in it. It gave me immeasurable ideas that I’ve always succeeded to deliver to the paper. Those were travel blogs, crazy schetches, even more crazy creations, but those moments are indescribable and never-forgetful! Those are the moments to life for! Forget about staying in the game, what’s important is to meet other people, get passionate about something and CREATE! The traveling is what connect us, what inspire us, what make us think broader, think different and be – different. The air and the spirit of another city is unparalleled comparison to any other form of inspiration, in my opinion.

To be more self-aware of another form of sense and another form of creation takes very little and gives a lot, especially if we can lift each other on a higher levels. It is true that everything changes, but creation is endless. Go out there, get passionate and be creative. The results can not miss!

NEW YORK INSPIRATION

I don’t think I am the only one who, when I first stepped into this fantastic city, fell in love with everything in it, and most of all, in its energy.

 

It was exactly three years ago when I had my first  fashion show at New York Fashion Week. Getting familiar with it, especially in this way, I had to introduced myself to the New York audience in a artistic way, and I wished to come back here whenever I could. I followed my senses, of course, and I knew where I would feel complete. On the first day of rehearsals, I saw what it has been a great motivation for me all these years: freedom, expression, width, high vibrations. I could write so much about this.

I was going to make my dream come true.  Artist dream. I want to live and create in NY.

 

When I say complete, I want to express my view of “fashion sense” (and not only fashion ), in this “center of the world”. Fashion in NY is fascinating. Fashion is not a simple explanation here. It just can not be. Fashion is all around. It’s in the streets, in the people, in the tasty food, in the way of life.

It’s not easy to define fashion, especially to me as a designer. However, each period has its own direction, its style, which is often standardized. That’s the base, then every individual has its own “trend”. Trends are something that is set, but our creations are unique. Our trend’s creation is what we are pursuing. We carry what we want, what is in the trend, to feel part of the whole. Being “fashionable” in this city is very easy, because this city loves and embraces the differences. I always detested uniformity, and often times I ignored it. On the other side, I sometimes used for a fantastic pieces of my own and styles.

Since we are all individuals, with our own choices and our own way of life, New York is a great place to savor fantastic fashion, and also go through personal transformation. The catharsis from the standard is the most beautiful freedom, and this city supports it strongly.

I find the inspiration in this energy that makes me move, explore, go further, leave the everyday comfort, change. Streets, tourists, yellow taxis, rain coming down, wet streets shining, Broadway, subway, inspiration is everywhere! And that’s just a small part of New York. New York that takes me to whole other dimension, where my creations are extraordinary, like the city itself, created exclusively from the feeling of everything surrounding me. Don’t be afraid to be unique and different, this city is crazy in love with it! Come here to show your (un)limits, make something beautiful, and live the dream! This city reward it with huge gratitude-it gives you its streets, its energy level, freedom of speech, expression, open mind and differentialities. Adventure begines when you are not ready for it.
