some of my favorite designers

 Hi guys, today I am going to talk about a few of my favorite designers right now. You may know some of these and it might be the first time you hear about others. Let’s go:

  1. My absolute favourite, Simon Porte Jacquemus. As you probably guessed from his name, he is the founder and designer for Jacquemus. Lately, I have been obsessed with his pieces. He started his brand 10 years ago and named it after his mother’s maiden name. He studied at ESMOD Paris and was invited to present his collection at Paris Fashion Week in 2012.  here are some of my personal faves from his runways:

  2. Peter Do is another designer I really love and respect. He designed for Celine and Derek  Lam before starting his own brand. Peter is a private person and you can’t really find any picture of him, but you can recognize him by his very unique tattoo that is a long black line from his neck to his hand. What I also really appreciate from Peter Do, except the clothes, is his genuine care for sustainability. He even created a whole new type of material that is sustainable and long lasting. Some of my favorite looks:

  3. I discovered Dion Lee recently and I fell in love with his designs and his ethics. He has a few pieces that are unisex and I really love that. Also, I have a weird obsession with corsets which he has a bunch of and are so beautiful. I don’t have a lot of information on his life and career, but I will show you some stunning looks from his collections:

  4. Iris van Herpen is such a great designer and she is so creative. Her designs are literal pieces of art. They look like a combination of sculpture, fashion and architecture. She designs Haute Couture pieces and she uses 3D printing as part of the creation process. She interned at Alexander McQueen before she decided to start her own brand in 2007. If you’ve never heard of her before, you HAVE to check out her work. It’s magical. I am going to show you some of my personal favorites:

  5. Jean Paul Gaultier is a very controversial designer, since his pieces are very unconventional but in a good way. He first started as Pierre Cardin’s assistant, and then slowly began working his way up. During his career he was creative director at Hermes, he has his own brand, he released a single and co-hosted a TV show. Unfortunately he retired in January 2020, but I will show you some of his best looks in my opinion:

      Hope you enjoyed, let me know who your favorite fashion designers are in the comment section below. Have a great day,

3 ways you can help save the planet: fashion edition

  Hi guys, happy new year! Since 2020 finished I thought we can leave all the negative stuff behind and focus on what we can do better this year. I will share some ways you can help save the planet, fashion edition. Let’s start:

  1. First, this one applies for any type of shopping, whenever you go to the mall or to a shop, always bring a tote bag or a fabric bag where you can put all of your new items. This way you don’t need a plastic bag and you reduce plastic pollution.

  2. Another way to help, is to stop buying fast fashion. Fast fashion is really bad for the environment because the items are low quality so they don’t last long, they are cheap which means someone is being exploited for those items and they are usually based on trends which means that people tend to throw them away when a new trend comes along. Now, I am guilty of this, but lately I have been trying to raise money so I can invest in sustainable, good quality, long lasting pieces. Some examples of fast fashion are: H&M, Zara, Stradivarius, BooHoo,etc. I have a few posts about great brands you should check out if you want good quality and long lasting pieces.

  3. This last one is the most fun.Thrifting. I know a lot of people are repulsed by the idea, but I am telling you, thrifting is wonderful. You can find one of a kind pieces for really low prices.It’s not only fun and satisfying, but also really great for the planet. So if you don’t want to pay a lot of money on sustainable brands, you can go thrifting. Also, if you are more interested in luxury pieces there are tons of preloved websites. One of my favorites is Vestiaire Collective.

  I hope this inspired you to make a change. If all of us change just a small part of our lifestyle, we can save the planet we all love and live on. Have a great day,
