A GREEK FASHIONISTA IN NYC

Εικόνα
Sofia Karvela is of Greek nationality and resides in NYC, in the heart of great opportunities for work and pleasure. I get to know Sofia long long time ago when we used to live in the same neighborhood and attend the same school. We then followed separate paths and now here we go again after internet evolution, we found out that we share the same passion for fashion, new ideas, innovative techniques, styling, and the notion of never giving up. Here is an interview of my friend, Sofia for those who are willing to get into the mind of a person with great potential who has great instinct on what the fashion world really needs.
1) Wealth or glory?
Glory comes with a high price.
2) Relationships: Choose between a good friend or a good love partner. A best friend I am attracted to enough to sleep with on a rainy day.
3) Give me some good reasons of working in the fashion industry:
The chaos. The hurry. The good taste. The beautiful people. The vanity. The bulshit. The season.…

MUST-HAVES OF THE MOMENT

It is true that I love fashion, I love the idea of dressing for a mood and of looking and feeling great. 
This summer... besides sun-screen?
 I think this is the season to spend less! 
Other than one great look for any summer wedding I will attend, I will follow these rules:

1. Great Skin.
2. Great Hair.
3. Great Attitude: Sometimes the best accessory a girl can have is a friendly smile and a kind word.
4. Clothes that you feel comfortable with: Lose pants, T-shirts, greek style nude sandals.
5. Get some sun so that you look healthy. (Do not forget to get protection, body and face).

6. Light nailcolors lke soft pink, yellowish, light blue.
7. Lightweight scarves for a stylish appearence.
8. Drink plenty of water, fresh juices an iced tea to feel better and have a better function of your inside organs.
9. Make up: During the day cleansing and a color SPF hydrating cream is enough to fight high temperature. In the evening: Eyelashes pencil, blush for cheeks and bones and lipgloss are more…

DIANA VREELAND AFTER DIANA VREELAND-One of the best exhibitions ever in Venice!

Εικόνα
One of the greatest major exhibitions of life and work of the fashion editor Diana Vreeland happens now in Venice, Italy. It is hosted at Palazzo Fortuny and it is about to last up to June 26, 2012. Vreeland was fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar, then editor in chief at Vogue and now special Consultant for the Costume Institut at New York's Metropolitan Museum. Venice offers an airport with a non stop flight for those who are willing to attend.
Looking forward to finding time to visit this fantastic exhibition, I am ok with the reading of "Allure" Diana Vreeland foreword by Marc Jacobs to get to the point, a book I bought from a bookstore near my house. It is full of excellent pictures of people that have infuenced Vreeland and through her professional career they have left a stigma on her, like Maria Callas and Nureyev.
