Fashion Now

Hello lovelies! How are you getting along with summer plans or vacations? I'm still here, on July 30st I will go for my summer vacations in Rodeos island! I'm still in Tirana. Now I'm at my aunt's house alone, Eranda is at uni giving a final exam and than she'll come home and we're going to do a photo-shoot, me the model :D
Yesterday I was at the Polis uni and had a great time there. When I was at library I read this amazing book called Fashion Now! I suggest you to buy this book and have it in your personal collection, it is worth it believe me! This is the cover:


And these are my favorite quotations from some great designers:

1) As Four:
We are our work and our work is our life. We don't design, we live!

2) Manolo Blahnik:
My goal is to always be a challenge to myself!

3) Ennio Capasa:
Beauty is an ambiguous mix between life and death!

4) Maria Cornejo:
I'm inspired by somebody wearing the wrong clothes!

5) Karl Lagerfeld:
I've survived quite a few generations. That's because i never lost my enthusiasm. I wake up every morning like on Christmas Day waiting for the gifts!

6) Veronique Leroy:
Making clothes isn't exciting- what is exciting is being able to give them a soul!

And now my favorite quotation from my favorite designer EVER:
7) Alexander McQueen:
I use things that people want to hide in their heads war, religion, sex: things we all think about but don't bring to the forefront. But I do and I force them to watch it!


Tell me, what do you think?...
