3 ways to wear a bandana and look Avantissimo

There are certain accessories that will never go out of fashion and small bandanas are certainly one of them. A bit retro, pin up and rebellious – they add that extra punch to a look, whether you keep it chic or playful.

Italian fashion is known for their love for colour and accessories, therefore there was no wonder that luxury fashion outlet Fidenza Village teamed up with 5 worldwide known illustrators to produce 5 exclusive limited edition bandana in tribute to futurist artist Depero. Very graphic and vibrant designs printed on solid, high quality italian cotton can finish any look and add that juicy touch to any fresh spring look.

My favourite bandana was done by Roman Muradov and here is how I styled it in 3 ways compromising current high street trends.

 

LOOK 1 – BANDANA AS HEADBAND

The classic bandana on a head always reminds me of 50’s pin up girls and I think they just look plain girly sexy and fun.

LOOK 2 – BANDANA ON WRIST

These bandanas are so colorful and beautiful, that I thought they could look amazing as a bracelet on its own. The geometric shapes made it look like piece of art and it brings a lot of attention to your handbag when you hold it as well – so make sure your bandana matches a bag you carry.

LOOK 3 – BANDANA ON NECK

Final classic look that was very trendy last year. This is perfect for an formal or office meeting.

Look Up High – Move On. Happy 2017.

img_39702016 didn’t begin well for me.

I was disappointed, drained and confused. In fact, in the midst of the NYE party with friends, I burst into tears.

I felt overwhelmed and hopeless. Despite the new dream job I had I was very stressed with it, I felt like I was losing my purpose and felt like I won’t be able to get out of where I was. I was stuck.

So here we go a year later…

I feel empowered. I feel joyful. The sense of purpose of my passions is back and I evolved.

I made so many necessary steps to move on, with small steps I committed in 2016 to heal myself. I knew that state of mind on beginning of 2016 was temporary – my heart kept telling me – there MUST be a way to get out of it. Even though my mind felt stuck – my heart kept whispering that I would be able to get out of that dark place.

And there is and was – I don’t own it all to myself, but also to many wonderful new friends I made, beautiful adventures, travels and celebrated success.

The major ones were undeniably my One Day video – my most beloved, personal project – to achieve so much success over the world on the fashion film festivals. These were the seeds that I planted with so much sweat and pain a year before – only to see them grow in 2016.

This was such an inspiring process that helped me to heal and grow – and move on.

Even if you feel stuck – keep working, keep believing. Rest, observe, analyse and step back if you need to. That’s what I did – I needed to reevaluate my dreams and goals in order to make necessary and beautiful new changes happen.

I have so many ideas to share and plans already to be done in 2017, but that energy I thought that would have never been back is with me – and I am so thankful for the beautiful and inspiring lesson I received in 2016, that also marked my dreams coming true.

One of my goals is to finally be more open and inspire – and be more committed to my art. I have so much to tell and if you are willing to read and listen – I am here.

Have an inspiring and full of blessings 2017 – full of positive signs from here and above.

SUKI London – Illustration and Launch

I have been commissioned a while ago by emerging luxury fashion designer SUKI London to provide her fashion illustrations for her SS15 collection and invitation to the launch party held at Wolf & Badger. I focused on delicacy, watercolor washes and ink that resembled the meticulous lace used all over the beautifully crafted dresses.

The event was held at Mayfair’s Wolf & Badger, which was a perfect location for an intimate launch with fashion friends. The luxury theme of SUKI was supported by beautifully arranged refreshments!
