All right, so November is probably one of the most depressing month ever. The days are super short, it’s getting cold and it rains way too much. Thank god for hot chocolate, right? But since I can’t only drink hot chocolate to make me forget about the oh so sad weather (who am I kidding? Of course I can but I’m an adult and I decide not to), I figured that the next best thing would be to remember some of the great trips I took to sunny places. And lately, I’ve been thinking to one of my favorite trips ever: Palo Alto. I don’t know if you know this, but I’m a nerd. So needless to say that I was super excited when I got the chance to go there and visit Stanford University. Now let’s walk down memory lane….
Flora Miranda. Ever heard of her? No? Well, this post is about to change that. The talented designer contacted me a couple of months ago to introduce me her concept. And to be completely honest with you, it was a pleasant discovery for me too. So, who’s she? Let’s get to know each other 🙂
1. Flora Miranda was born in Austria.
2. When I asked her when she got her first taste for fashion, she said: “As a young teenager I participated in the Viennese fashion contest “Kids in Fashion” every year, with some drawings, and each year my drawings made it and the designs were realised by fashion students and were shown on a catwalk. However, that was just a little thing on the side because I was mainly occupied with painting. When I was 16 years old, I had the opportunity to do an internship at a Swiss sports company, where I was more fascinated by the team building and the way the company was built than by the technical drawings the fashion designers were spending their time on. When a year later I was given a book about Belgian fashion design I made my final decision. I remember thinking that what I wanted to do in painting I could bring to the body in 3D. In this book I saw a very artistic approach, an alternative view on beauty and gender. Seeing fashion as an art form and recognising that fashion is more than a technical drawing but rather coordinates various disciplines, I was very drawn to take this path.” Continue reading “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flora Miranda”→
