Haute couture – what the dream is about

There is something so gently awakening in my heart just by mentioning “haute couture”. The fashion because of the fashion itself is the purest form of it – and, somewhat, became my dream. The very first thought I will have on my mind is Dior – as the French origin of the surname combines Dieu (it stands for God) and or (it stands for gold) – and the golden decade of his creativity. I am ever so inspired just by looking at such beautiful forms, and what I love the most is the consistent process of making it real. It beginns with a simple idea (the idea of a dress). The idea is being shown by the drawn lines (illustration). It goes to to the fields of matematics for its specification (pattern making), takes the advantage of the technology for its construction (being sewn) and, by using the uniquess of the handicraft, becomes purified (the final touch). Depending on the idea, that could take the hundreds of hours – but how to show the appreciation towards the knowledge and the time it takes but being taken by its beauty?

In this chapter I will present the bridal piece I recently created – oh, haute couture was never closer to me!

Urban style photoshoot

It has been more than three months since my friend and I saw each other the last time. When we met, the first thing we did was sharing all the great news from our lives, where did we go and what we saw. My friend is very cheerful  and he can make anyone laugh. I am more serious though, but I found myself being very silly when we’re together. We are friends since 2004 so that sense of silliness comes naturally  and it is so enjoyable.

Since that last meeting, a very great thing happened to my photography I put an effort in learning Lightroom and that is one of the best things that could ever happen to my photography actually, so good that I questioned myself how could I possibly even start shooting without knowing it first?! If there is any piece of advice I could give on this field, it would be: shoot Raw from the beginning and learn Lightroom!

Let me tell you a short story

…about the idea called „Ladies first“.

It all began with the name that was ringing in my head that night: „Ladies first“. I turned over and asked my roommate how does she like it. She agreed that it suites very well with the ideas I wanted to work on and I accepted it. It was the Valentine’s day 2014.

The love for words and fashion

Since I learned how to write all the letters, it started my adventure with words. At first these where some simple sentences I used to write in the picture books I was receiving – such as: “This is my favourite book ever” (written inside of “The wizard of Oz”) – that were, later on, more specified and connected in the short stories and the poems since when I was nine years old. What a vivid imagination I had! What took it from me so I am still trying to finish my first novel? In the meantime, this blog appeared – even I am mostly making the posts how passionate I am about the fashion, the real story behind all that has to be included: that is me – and, in my world, the words are the essence.
