Paris meets Athens.For the first time.

The date has been set.
French Fashion House Guy Laroche will "visit" the 8th Athens Exclusive Designers Week on October 2010.
For the first time.
Marcel Marongiu [artistic Director of GL since 2007] will be there,too.

[Athens Xclusive Designers Week - AXD is the official international fashion week in Greece, which takes place twice a year, presenting the Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter collections of significant fashion designers from Greece and abroad.]

So I grab the chance and I'm presenting you my favorite
outfits from Fall 2010 collection and my last purchases
from the Guy Laroche Fashion House.

my last purchases

A turquoise leather jacket & an authentic Panama hat , both bought from Guy Laroche boutique.

Do you like them?
Sadly it's too hot here in Greece , to wear the leather jacket so I have to wait till Autumn , but the hat will be my best friend during my holidays!

It's a turban story

What do we know about turbans? Except the fact that they were all over Sex and the City 2. I'm a definitely a headwear fan as you can see in my photo,
but I don't think many people like hats and head accessories.

Information about turbans

Unconfirmed legend has it that one day thousands of years ago a man took a bath in a lovely oasis in the middle of the desert. After drying himself with a towel he decided to overcome the hot sun by wrapping the damp towel around his head to take advantage of the cool feeling it provided. The local people adopted this method of fighting the heat and to this day variations of this centuries old technique is still used.
  • Turbans can be decorated in a variety of ways. Often the fabric is dyed one color and bordered with a contrasting color. For more intricate designs, everyday turbans are block-printed or tie-dyed. Festive turbans are made of more expensive fabrics, such as silk, and even woven or stamped with gold thread.
  • Turban & Religion are also close to each other.People around the globe don't wear turbans because they're fashionable but because their religion dictates so.
  • The term "turban" also refers to a woman's hat that is similar in shape to a man's turban.
  • Visit the turbanizer site to see how you look in a turban

  • Three years ago,in 2007 Prada’s glamorous silk satin turbans exploded on the runway at their show for Spring/Summer 07

  • Jean Paul Gaultier also launched over sized turbans for the Fall Winter 2010 collection.

If you don't know how to tie your turban ,

Wardrobe Recycle

In case you are too bored to tie anything ,

So is the turban finding its way into your closet?Do you Dare?

It's not always fun to be an Astronaut

As a kid, everyone asks you "what do u want to be when you grow up?" My answer always was the same "An Astronaut" (and at times a prime minister -Yeah I know, I was a weirdo!) Now that I chose interior design instead of NASA , Hunter Freeman came in to back up the choice I made a few years ago and he created the

Physics in practice Shoot

I'm super busy today and I can't post all the photos I'd like to show you!
So I'm sharing with you this shoot I discovered today!

Jonatan Fernstrom studied photography at University of Gothenburg (Sweden) and graduated in 2001.After that he became a freelance photographer.
This is what happens when the concept of the shoot is so impressive that overwrites the actual object of presentation, the clothes.
