Everyone, especially influencers, is showing more interest in nail art this year. I know it’s legendary. It completes being a stylish and elegant woman. Unlike plain tones, colorful tones are on the radar of elegance this year. I too must admit that I am addicted to nail art. Sometimes I question myself in terms of time. because there is someone who takes care of your hands for three hours. but definitely worth what I expected. I get very happy every time I look at my nails. especially colorful tones…
Starting from the mid-20th century, the fashion industry has been presenting young and thin people like it’s the only correct way to exist -especially for women. High fashion clothes were made in smaller sizes and worn by thin models; of course, this affected the ready-to-wear clothing, too. I want to say that ready-to-wear brands have always been nicer and more open to big people but their designs were either basic or not stylish. Most of the big size clothes were out of style, like things my grandma would wear. This supported the idea that young people are not allowed to be fat and bigger people are not fashionable -or even beautiful- so they can’t wear stylish clothes unless they lose weight. And there were tons of styling tips to “help” big people look thinner. It felt like this industry didn’t even care for them!
Other than designing and showcasing the clothes, fashion industry is all about materials such as fabrics, yarns and accessories. There are so many material options to use for any kind of clothing as the fashion industry got engaged with science and technology related industries such as physics, biology and chemistry recently. This helped people to create synthetic and unique fibers and sources other than the natural ones. This is great way to produce more affordable and durable clothes and also slightly decreased the animal exploitation. This sounds like a great development at first but with time it started to hurt the planet. Because unlike the natural fibers, human made fibers don’t decompose as easy, fast and kind.
Sustainability became an important part of our lives. Whether it’s for saving the planet or not wasting money, we tend to buy less items or upcycle our belongings and use them in different ways after they are ripped off or are needed anymore. Thankfully people are getting more and more creative with using their old belongings so recently, it’s not a need that arises from prudence but a need of beauty and fun!
Merhaba! Bugün önceki yazılarımdan farklı bir içerikle karşınızdayım. Başlıktan da anlayacağınız üzere dünyanın en ünlü erkek giyim fuarı Pitti Uomo’yu ele alacağım. Bir tasarımcı olarak belki içinizde merak eden, modaya ilgi duyanlar vardır diye düşündüm. İyi okumalar 😊
Are you feeling like you are living in the space age literally? Can you guess what is expecting us in the future? Making spot-on guesses is getting harder year by year. Because numerous new needs and new life habits eventually will come up. A decade later probably will be way more different than we imagine. Therefore it is not hard to foresee the near future. While almost everything is getting digital, our way of clothing will be digital as well. There are some signals for this. Let’s take look at these signals. For instance, a digital fashion house The Fabricant sold a digital couture dress ‘Iridescence’ for $9500 in 2019. This dress is digital and you cannot literally wear it. It moves on you and it has a hyper-reality look. This is a significant amount of money for a non-existing gown. This dress was bought by a woman named Mary. Creative Director Amber Jae Slooten from Fabricant wrote these words “A new cult is rising. The digital world is coming and we are no longer bound to physical space.”
Bu aralar ne kadar çok duyuyoruz değil mi sürdürülebilirlik kavramını. Artık herkesin nihai hedefi haline geldi çevreye bıraktığımız ayak izlerimizi en aza indirgemek, olabildiğince az çöp çıkarmak. Aslında günlük hayatımızda yapacağımız küçük değişikliklerle bile hayvanların nesillerini, doğayı koruyup gelecek nesillere yaşanabilir bir dünya bırakabiliriz. Peki ya nedir bu ufak değişikler?
