The Bible… an opus created by human beings, whom you trust, whom you believe, whom you count on and who deliver the newest fashion trends and ‘No-Go’s’ every single month on more than about one hundred pages and guarantee that what they write persuades thousands and thousands of women and men to buy things they actually do not need but must have. Of course I am not talking about the religious Bible, the driest and most misleading book of world history, which confronts us with the eternal question ‘What is actually NOT a sin in front of God’s eyes?’. No, I am talking with the greatest veneration of my personal Bible, the Vogue.
Ironically people tend to say about me that I am very easy manipulable but in reality this ‘Fashion It-Piece’ taught me to not trust a people’s opinion too easily and that I do not necessarily have to remain my belief on the fact that someone’s ideology does not automatically have to mine, just to be trendy. Vogue made me question things, situations, different behaviors and the value of materiality. It made me see things from a different angle, free, untroubled and it taught me to not take myself too seriously and behave too perfectionisticly because the world itself is serious enough and society is anyway too embossed to never lose track of sobriety.
Vogue is not about haphazardly buying what a magazine writes about but exactly the opposite. In fact it shows us to regard something critically, developing your own view to pick out those things desirable that do not just possess market value but a personal value as well.
Loving yourself is one of the most important feelings in the world, because someone who is not able to take himself to one’s heart will always block out other people’s emotion.
Wasting an amount of money unnecessarily for absurd shopping trips is not what my personal Bible wants to convey but rather developing the ability to see the best sites of life, to enjoy them and to shine from the inside out. Living life and indulging yourself in something that you deserve, you work for and that makes you happy.
I am not trying to glorify a Fashion Magazine or persuading people to being liable to shopping sprees. I want to show that human interpretations and the whole characterization of skepticism often lead too quickly and too easily to making wrong decisions, which leads people to believe the fashion industry is only all about the appearance of superficiality and the multiplying of money and the connected capitalism.
But I am loving so much different values and abilities of the fashion world… the value of giving a human being the feeling of being someone special, showing, that every one existing in this world has beauty. I love the ability of fashion of underscoring and accentuating the natural elegance of a human being. Accompanying it, softly painting the lines as if you are drawing a fragile water color, just like Monet did kiss his famous water lilies.
Values and abilities a lot of people are not aware of but nevertheless are existing and for myself, showing every single day, that fashion is by all means not just my passion, but in fact my life.
