The story of Louis Vuitton

Hello guys, let’s continue with our series ‘The story of…’ Today we will be talking about the designer Louis Vuitton. He was born on on the 4th of August 1821 in France in a family of carpenters and farmers. When he was 10, his mother, who was a hat maker, died and his father followed soon after. He had a very difficult relationship with his adoptive stepmother, so he left at the age of 13. Doing some weird jobs for a living. he traveled aprox 450 km to Paris where he arrived in 1837, in the middle of the Industrial Revolution, he apprenticed under Monsieur Marechal, a successful trunk maker and packer. Within a few years he gained a reputation among the most fashionable people of Paris, as one of the city’s premiere practitioner of the craft.

After the re-establishment of the French Empire under Napoleon III, the Empress of France hired Vuitton as her personal trunk maker and packer. She charged him with “packing the most beautiful clothes in an exquisite way”. This provided Vuitton with an opening to the royal and elite clientele which provided him with work for the rest of his career.

He married 17 year-old Clemence-Emilie Parriaux in 1854, when he was 33 years-old. He left Marechal’s shop soon after and opened his own trunk making and packing workshop in Paris. He hung a sign, outside his shop, that read “Securely packs the most fragile objects. Specialising in packing fashions.” In 1858, Vuitton introduced his revolutionary rectangular canvas trunks, inspired by H. J. Cave and Sons of London, at a time when the market only had rounded-top leather trunks. The demand for his trunks was huge, so he opened a new shop in Asnieres-sur-Seine. The original pattern of the canvas was called “Damier”. Vuitton also invented the first pick-proof lock

After the Franco-Prussian War, in 1871, the demand fell and his workshop was in shambles. Many of his tools were stolen and all his staff was gone. Vuitton rebuilt quickly, opening a new shop at 1 Rue Scribe, next to a famous jockey club in the heart of Paris. He later ied in 1892.

Fashion courses

If you are interested in learning about fashion and style and you are not allowed to go to fashion schools or universities, MOMA has a great Fashion as Design online free class, that I find very interesting. You learn new things and you also get to communicate with other people that are taking that course.

There are also other free online courses, one of my favourite ones must be the elearning college ones. Not only do they have a fashion design course, they have a ton of courses you can take.

I am enrolled for Fashion Design, Internet Marketing and Social Media Marketing.

If you want more information, don’t hesitate to leave a comment down below. Hope this helped, and have a great day.

What i think about Luxury Buying

I see a lot of people on Instagram talking about Designer and Luxury items so i decided to talk a little bit about it, even though I don’t own a lot of designer stuff and I didn’t buy most of them with my own money, since I am a minor. But since fashion and designer items are something I am very passionate about, I will give my opinion on them.

So, I obviously love designer goods, but I am also aware that they cost a lot of money. And I also know a lot of women wish to look expensive and classy. In my opinion you don’t need to buy very expensive things to look ‘expensive’.

I find that high street shops have very good quality clothes and for a very good price. Some examples would be Zara(one of my recent favourites), Mango, H&M, Stradivarius etc.

Where I am trying to go with this is that you can look your best in High street clothes and invest in some designer accessories to improve your look, but I don’t think having designer clothes means you look good or ‘expensive’. I believe what makes a good outfit is the way you style it and accessorise it, not how much you paid for the outfit.

Hope you have a great day. Also this is just my personal opinion and I am not trying to upset anyone.

My favorite backpacks

I’ve had an passion for bags and shoes for almost 4 years. And I’ve started collecting them 3 years ago. Today I am going to show you and review my two absolute favorite backpacks.

Chanel Graffiti backpack

I got this backpack from my aunt as a gift, I think 4 years ago. I’ve been using it a LOT since I got it. I absolutely love it. It fits a ton of stuff and it’s a great travel bag. You can also wear it with so many things. I would 100% recommend it.

I am not sure how much it costs, also because it’s pretty old.

Longchamp le pliage nylon backpack

I got this backpack in an airport in Munchen. I always wanted a Longhamp bag, but then i decided I would get more use out of the backpack. I believe this is the new collection. I don’t have it for a long time, I have it since December 2019. But I have used it literally everyday since. It looks kinda small, but it actually fits a ton of stuff. Also the material is really resistant to rain and dirt.

I paid around 85 euros for it. It’s worth every penny.

Let me know what your favorite bag is in the comment section. Have a great day!

Your Must-have items – Fashion and accessories

Today I am going to talk about some must-have items. From clothing to accessories. This is my personal opinion, it doesn’t have to apply to everybody.

A white T-shirt

Just a plain white T-shirt, that goes with absolutely anything. It goes with jeans, leggings, literally any type of pants or skirts. Here is an example from YSL:

A pair of jeans

I think everybody own at least one pair of jean. For example I have a pair of mom jeans and a pair of skinny jeans. For the moment I am in love with mom and boyfriend jeans. This pair is from Pull & Bear:

A leather jacket

I honestly love a good leather jacket with almost anything. I use mine way too much. It’s just so versatile and you can use it almost any season. This one is from Asos:

A pair of white sneakers

White sneakers are an absolute must. They just work with everything. There are so many different types of white sneakers that I love, but these are the Adidas Superstars and they are a great option:

Black high heels

To continue with the shoe section, black high heels are also a must. They can turn almost any casual outfit into a dressy or night out kind of outfit. These are from Christian Louboutin:

A classic belt

Until last summer, I didn’t really use belts. But know that I discovered them I am soo in love with belts. They just change the outfit completely and make it more sophisticated. This is just a classical belt from Chanel:

Hope you enjoyed. If you know any other must-have items or you want me to make a part two, leava a comment down below. Have a great day.

My “obsessions”

What do I mean by obsessions…I don’t mean it as something bad, just like things that I love or like so much it is almost like an obsession. For example:

  • I love shoes and bags, like, a lot. Especially the luxury/designer ones even if I don’t own a lot of designer shoes and bags.
  • I love fashion and style. I find it such an interesting and versatile topic. Each one of us can have a different style of taste in fashion, but just the love for it could bring us closer.
  • I also love watching series on Netflix in my bed with some popcorn… I could do that all the time, and if I have company even better.
  • I love reading, but only books that I find interesting or books that catch my eye. I hate reading something because someone told me so.
  • I love playing with my pets,it is so relaxing and fun.

Do you have any “obsessions”? If you do, leave a comment and let me know what they are. Hope you have a terrific day.

XOXO, Delayla
