Fashionistas…


…are neither In nor stylish. They just buy whatever the media tells them in order to appear cool, trendy and expensive and let’s be honest that’s dumb, boring and unspectacular.

Fashionistas are not cool, because it is not cool to hide your low capacity of self-esteem and self-assurance by buying the latest It-bag. It-bags are out the only reasonable buy is an investment bag. Birkin; 2.55; Speedy an Jackie O. And if you do not know the labels of these bags you know for sure that you have to get in front of your books to study the history of fashion – Hermès, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.

Fashionistas do not have their own kind of style or attitude, that’s always just playing pretend. Fashionistas open a magazine, turn on the TV or read a fashion book and immediately run around to buy whatever they are told. It isn’t necessary to go with every trend that comes out of nowhere – believe me, most trends don’t fit you anyway so just leave it to rest.

Fashionistas are Fashion victims – poor, pitiful and sad. It will never set your wardrobe apart or make any inimitable style statment if you carry around bags and shoes and jeans that are flags of surrender and advertise that you are a fashion victim without any sense for style. Buying a trend is not stylish just because it is a trend. Not every trend is stylish and for sure not every trend should actually be a trend. Or did you honestly ran around with your panties above your jeans just because Britney Spears did in her Video ‘I’m a slave 4 u’? It fitted for her, sure, but it will never do for you. That’s neither cute nor trend-setting nor groundbreakingly stylish – it is actually just dumb.

Do anything that sets you apart from a similar looking crowd wearing the same bags and shoes just because they’ve been advertised. Fashion is not about advertising. It is about developing an own sense for fashion and for separating those things that work for you from those that definitely do not.

Don’t be foolish. Be yourself. And be proud of yourself. Do anything to show others that you are not an average girl or boy dressing how they expect it from you.

Do it your way. And only your way.

Song of the Day: Lucie Silvas


Lucie Silvas – What you’re made of [Album: Breathe In]

Just like I predicted, we’re at the point of no return
We can go backwards, and no corners have been turned

I can’t control it, if I sink or if I swim
‘Cause I chose the water that I’m in

And it makes no difference who is right or wrong
I deserve much more than this
‘Cause there’s only one thing I want

[Chorus]
If it’s not what you’re made of
You’re not what I’m looking for
You where willing but unable to give me anymore
There’s no way,
You’re changing,
Cause some things will just never be mine,
You’re in not love this time…but it’s alright.

I hear you talking, but your words don’t mean a thing
I doubt you ever put your heart into anything

It’s not much to ask for, to get back what I put in
But I chose the waters that I’m in

And it makes no difference who is right or wrong
I deserve much more than this
‘Cause there’s only one thing I want

[Chorus]
If it’s not what you’re made of
You’re not what I’m looking for
You where willing but unable to give me anymore
There’s no way,
You’re changing,
Cause some things will just never be mine
You’re not in love this time…but it’s alright.

What’s your definition of the one?
What do you really want him to become?
No matter what I sacrifice it’s still never enough.

Just like I predicted
I will sink before I swim
‘Cause these are the waters that I’m in

[Chorus]
If it’s not what you’re made of
You’re not what I’m looking for
You where willing, but unable to give me anymore
There’s no way,
You’re changing,
‘Cause some things will just never be mine
You’re not in love this time.
Oh, if it’s not what you’re made of
You’re not what I’m looking for
You where willing, but unable to give me anymore
There’s no way,
You’re changing,
‘Cause some things will just never be mine
You’re not in love this time
You’re not in love this time
You’re not in love this time…

Enjoy this beautiful voice and this heartbreaking song.

XOXO

spill it out…boy


There are some times in life when you wish you could control your feelings and your thoughts and you visualize yourself sitting in front of the mac trying so hard to get rid of certain thoughts and feelings and emotional rushes that all you can do is run to the bathroom to lock yourself up and vomit because you can’t hold it all inside – well, not all at the same time, if it happens to be so much.
Controling oneself often seems to hard to handle and most of the times you have to face reality admiting that certain things, happenings, phone calls or messages just make you throw up in order of being able to cope with them properly and adequately … and somehow, one step at a time throwing up is turning into a routin and swallowing all the shit that is in your head is the only thing available to do anymore. At least for the last 18 years and possibly the next 40 to 50. If you will make it that far.

Oh please, do not believe, that I am talking about anorexia or bulimia because these kind of things are too off limit for myself because I love my body and bla bla you have heard the shit and it is true – believe me. I love to eat and keep it in me, actually. But time and events have it that you have to deal with certain facts in life.

Take it or leave it. Ha Ha.

What is it that God always seems to save the empty and the ugly? Why is it the labels that survive international financial crisis that do not constantly work out to show great creations about this or last season’s fashion? Why is the failure seemingly always the successful?

Once in fashion history class [- when we had our old and much better versed directrice in Fashion Institute than the new one that does not have the slightest clue about what looks good on hips like that – really, getting a stylist obviously doesn’t always help polishing an image and for sure simply reading Vogue doesn’t qualify you to lead a whole school – sorry mademoiselle K, seems like you failed on that one just like Prada did on their last say five to six collections.] we discussed Prada as some kind of topic of fashion relevance and my former professor used to say ‘Either you love Prada or you just hate it.’ and let me tell you one thing – I have loved it before, I have even used it but now – I hate the Womenswear [it’s really obnoxious] and I hate the women’s bags.
It might seem as if Miuccia loses either her drive or her surname slowly but faster than she might feel by herself.

The new Prada Yo-Yo bag crosses the lines of the acceptance and taste and jets right over to the bold, the ugly and the ultimate fashion suicide. Sorry Madame Prada but with this creation you must have been a little bit out of your mind here. Did no one tell you that cheap looking materials do not sell on high fashion prices or are you just overestimating your own capabilities?
Horrifyingly designed and cheaply assembled every single of these bags look like a fake deluxe and believe me usually I can smell a fake purse from Taiwan over to Vienna. This time the little children’s hands did not seem to work properly or are you really serious about these horribly made stitches?

Better get a new sack of inspirations – I guess the old ones do not work anymore and the name of Prada doesn’t give you a lifetime immunity. For now, it seems to work. Let’s see for how long.

Get your hands off of these bags.

Decisions


Life is about making decision. Some of them are quite easy like picking a pair of matching shoes for you daily outfit or fitting a Bag to a pair of Jeans and Burberry boots. But most decisions you will have to make throughout your life are heartbreakingly tough and painful enough to ruin days – even though they are not bad at all.

What do you do when you have had someone you have loved for more than three years now. Someone who told you he would show up to be there for you but did not. Never, when he said he would. It would break your heart. In fact, it tore mine apart and it still is not healing at all. But it is love. Still.

And then, there is the one who accidentally crossed your way and made you fall for him – entirely. The one who is there to hold you when you are on the balcony deeply crying doubting yourself without asking questions but just being there when you fall asleep in the evening and when you wake up in the morning. And you are in love. Newly. Beautifully.

So for whom do you decide in the end? For the one who told you he would give you his all without giving you himself for real or for the one who gets up earlier to prepare breakfast for you – even though he knows you never eat breakfast at all, but thinks its good for you to start your day?

Why do we miss those that actually just hurt us and doubt those that won us over in seconds? Why is there always something left hanging on us like a shadow of yesterdays and yesteryears? And why the hell is it so hard to move on without secretly crying – every single day?

the Single Boy’s/Girl’s thought…


‘When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautios. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?’ [Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City, Season 6, Episode: The Catch]

Why do people try so hard to find someone to catch them before they are barely ready enough to save themselves? Is it really that hard to be a single in this world or is it just an unspoken law that singles are lost souls and dead until they found someone to hook up with and to marry afterwards? When did it become a crime to be single and when did it become law to mingle?

Since we can think we are being taught that in life you can be only happy if you find someone to be happy with, because that is the only possibility of leading a socially accepted life – with a family and kids. But as the gays came out of their pink boxes and women learned to be independent and people start teaching themselves the tales of life, it all came to a change and that is what we called Millenium – okay actually the Millenium was something we should have oversleput but there truly has been a remarkably change in the way people see single girls and boys. Sometimes they are a threat and sometimes they are being commiserated.

It is an unmistaken fact that once you are in a relationship you stop living the single boy’s/girl’s thought and start living the ‘I have to look if WE have plans’ – thought. Once you are in a realationship you do not care about those who commiserated you as a single, because you are one of those who see singles either as a threat or as something to be pity about, because you have someone to sleep at, someone to run to, someone to shower with and someone to get fucked by.

This goes out to all those who aren’t singles, because I am not a single anymore too [surprise, surprise], but please stop commiserating because there is nothing bad about being single. And there is nothing bad about not falling and not getting catched by someone – because singles nowadays are strong enough to catch themselves.

Live it. Free-spirited.

Born – the Collection


One of my best friends B who has her own label called leaving lychee and myself had a collaboration going on for a fashion festival called ‘8cht!’, which featured 8 designers and 8 photographers for 8 weeks.
Right after I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in June Mario Soldo came up asking me, if I wanted to take part with showing my fashion designs in onw of those 8 weeks and I said – not without my girl B. And so 8785 minarikschermann [which is my label, as many of you might now by now] and leaving lychee made a collaboration creating 10 couture dresses primarily engaging with the design of the human body – its system, the thoughts of its genesis, its development and its structure. We created, sewed and finalized this collection within three weeks in order to be able to show it in a runway show on July 30th.

If you come closer to experience the theme of this collection you will realize that we did not concentrate on the obvious parts of the human body but dug deeper down into the material of the human creature and its genesis of the body and the animalcule and cellular structure to transport the inside to the outside in order of making it visible to everybody. It was very important to us that the human body was being signified as a symbol for birth, genesis and origin – or symplified representing life as an eternal cirlce of reproduction of animalcule, cellular and molecular systems.

The main inspirations have been biological elements like the Golgi apparatus, the DNA, the fetus, seminal fluid and other organic cellular structures. Not only the cuts and the details are dedicated to the human being but also our colour concept which is influenced by microscopical observations of these cellular structures and animalcules.

All the pictures have been taken by photographer Julian Laidig in a shooting that has been entertaining and funny! Above all, because I had my wonderful assistant by my side who brought some action into this shooting – can you remember Nico? Both models – Diana Bobrowski and Carina Timmel have been absolutely great, professional and above all beautiful.

Hope you like the designs – every single dress is one of a kind, so if you are interested in one be quick. More pictures are coming up from the show. I promise you.

XOXO
