VIEW ON FASHION //
For me, fashion is the way we choose to present ourselves. The way we dress communicates what we like, don’t like, and let us relate to similar individuals without saying a word.
It feels a bit shitty to say that the desire for self-expression through fashion is so important that I feel really “naked” in the gym because sportswear does not suit my identity. Realizing this, I get a bit scared because I do not believe in the famous quote ” You are what you wear ” and I do not subscribe to the idea that materialistic objects possess me.
Besides this personal perspective, I see fashion not only as a form of self-expression, but society as a whole. Fashion is a big part of our culture and reflects the zeitgeist. Even now it seems that subcultures are melting together, I think that when we look back in a few years, we discover/ recognize new patterns that are representative of our time.
Since I study/ work in fashion, I see fashion as a huge industry. I find it super interesting how brands let us choose their clothes; how it becomes part of our identity. Getting to know this kind of philosophy behind fashion brands makes me more aware of my decisions about fashion; it definitely changed my view.
SIGNATURE STYLE //
Actually I never think about my signature style. It just happens. However I like mixing juxtaposing things that create questions and I don’t like basics. I need clothes to cheer me up and I feel the most confident in black.
It sounds a bit cliche but if I need to summarize my style I would say: classy with an edge, or edgy with a touch of class.
