THESSALONIKI- Whoever said that “New York is the city that never sleeps” clearly haven’t been to my hometown. I was born and lived in Greece almost my whole life, the country with one of the most interesting cultures that goes way back many centuries through history. The country how raised the greatest philosophers of all times, the place that is never too cold or too hot, breathtaking sceneries, beautiful summer nights, islands dressed in white and blue, hospital people with extraordinary stories to tell, stories about wars, bravery and everlasting honor.
I live in a busy neighborhood, close to Thessaloniki’s city center, raised as a only child with loving friends and in a small cozy home. The streets was never a “fashion runway”. People tend to dress casually almost all day there isn’t much diversity but if you look closely, you can find some examples of remarkable sense of style and elegance, even if they are only a few.
Since I was a little girl I was fascinated by art and fashion. By the time I got to high school I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. This may seems like the perfect thing for a 15 year old girl but in my situation (as a Greece-France private school’s student) studying arts and fashion wasn’t the best example. Last year I graduated from Fashion school and I haven’t regretted it, not for a minute. The things I learned, the shows I participated – I would never changed that. Not for all the medical and layer colleges of the world (as everyone was so found of me to go). I started a fashion/style blog short after my graduation, my goal was to write and inspire people to chase their own dreams, to create their fashion statements and not blindly follow the existed ones. As Yves Saint Laurent said: fashion fade, style is eternal.
If a had to “tag” my personal style, it would be diverse. I always enjoy the softness and elegance of a silk dress but I would never change my creepers and cropped lace corset tops. Few months ago I started designing and making handbags. I was so proud of my self the fist time a made one. So far I don’t own a shop but I am planning to do start one during this year. Every year is a chance to start something new.
