All started when I was 5 years old, the day my father bought me my first Barbie doll. Given that the dolls at 1993 had only a dress inside the package, for me it wasn’t fair. As a creative child, and fond of beauty, unique, personalized things, colors and cuts, my imagination started working to fulfill Stejsi’s wardrobe (yes at those times my doll had had a name). I did not know then, that authentic pieces were necessary to make a dress, but I used my father’s old Jersey shirts. The unique tactics used at that time by me will make you laugh. I swear! Skirt was made with the collar part of a shirt, in a way so that the buttons would be close to the Barbie’s belly.

Yves Saint Laurent once said :” I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.” Jeans are the only type of clothing that never went,goes or will go out of style. Of course they evolve based on time but yet they remain the most important piece of clothing in our wardrobe either if you call yourself a ‘fashionista’ or not. And among the most dedicated designers , there are some who stand out when it comes to denim.
My body is a journal in a way. It’s like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on youself, whether you do It yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist.
It is officially our traditional Sunday, our Crush of the week:
