London Fashion Week S/S 2017 recap

London Fashion Week is over already and it was very intense couple days, stretching from last Friday until this Tuesday. However, the whole September is always busy, especially now when there are Design Festivals and other small fashion cocktail events and off schedule shows.

Running from one place to another, not properly eating and staying outside for the whole day on a feet is very tiring. I am literally going home exhausted. Finally I had some time to work on this summary post of this September Fashion Week in London. Just look at all those details, combinations and talents!

On Thursday evening, Fashion Week kicks out with The Event Paper at Stradivarius on Oxford Street in London. The whole evening was great start of getting into the mood of fashion week in London. Evening was accompany by great music, live photo shoot and tasty cocktails.

On Friday, me and my friend head to one of the show organized by On/Off, an organization showcasing both established fashion designers and emerging independent talent. Friday evening was all about selection of four emerging designers which the show was enhanced by a live band. The whole collections and the installations inside were just great! After the show we head down to Dover Street to Wolf & Badger x Swarovski event where we stayed up until late.

Saturday woke up early to get ready for another day of a fashion. Went to see XX show, then after went to see Rohmir show. Took a break after these two shows for couple of hours and until evening I returned back for a show at 7 pm and after the show went to a pup up event of Sabinna brand.

On Sunday I was feeling very tired after having 3 days in a row running all over places, staying up late and on Thursday and Friday also had work. Therefore, Sunday was very chilled day. Around lunch time me and my friend head off for Apu Jan show at Freemason's hall. I was very impressed by the show and especially by the live music that was there! After the show we had lunch in Soho and went to a Grooming room to chill a bit before we head out for presentations. We hang out around Berwick car park where this year the LFW showrooms are again taking place. We got very moody and tired throughout the day and we weren't able to survive until evening where I had a show align on the day. Thus we have decided to go home and rest.

Monday after work I head to see FAD competition show where I was amazed by very young talents.

Tuesday I had other responsibilities and preparations for Design Festivals. This year fashion week was again amazing and glad to see so many new faces around.

Fabric clash


My first look for London Fashion Week day 2. Wearing boyfriend oversized shirt from River Island and a denim dress. Love the fabric mixture on the shirt and it makes the whole denim look live. Mixing fabrics is very common thing when we are dressing. However, a right combination of fabrics is crucial to make the great effects from an outfit. And what is your favourite fabric combination?

If you are following me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen that before the fashion week in London kicks off, I have attended Stradivarius Event Paper in their flagship store on Oxford Street. Will be doing a recap post of shows and great collections I have seen on the catwalk! Stay tuned!

Romania: Places to visit


At the beginning of August, I visited Romania for couple days. When I am thinking about it, Eastern Europe is still unexplored by me and Romania is the first country I had a chance to visit. Refer back to my photo diary to catch up with my experiences there.

My visit was very short but manage to see the highlights of Romania. Now, it is a time to summarize a bucket list of places to see when travelling across the country. I went for only 4 days and in order to see more, hiring a car and doing a road trip was the best idea. Romania has many beautiful natural places that are worth to get emerged into. You will basically find everything there, from sea side, beach to mountains. You might be surprised! What is great about Romania, is that it is not such a touristic destination, therefore you will not find crowds of tourists. Thus, it is much better to get to know the culture and country more from observing day life of people there.

1. Bucharest 
A country's capital city. The highlight of the city would be definitely the iconic landmarks of a massive Palace of the Parliament building which has over 1 000 rooms and is ranked as a second largest administrative building in the world.
What is definitely worth a visit in the city is as well Dimitrie Gusti National Village museum. It is an open-air ethnographic museum located in park, you will walk around traditional authentic Romanian villages and you will be able to discover more about the village life.
I bet you will all know the legendary Dracula story which will follow your thoughts anywhere you will go in Romania. You can visit a 15th century Curtea Veche Palace where Prince Vlad III once ruled. Besides that, Bucharest is very lively with its night scenes and endless option of bars and places to eat out, if you feel like discovering other side of tourism, visit Lipscani district for energetic nightlife scenes.

2. Bran castle
A national monument of Romania, located near Brasov city. Commonly known as Dracula castle.

3. Peles castle
The beautiful castle on eyes is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the mountains is constructed by King Carol I.

4. Brasov
Brasov is a city in Transylvania region. This city is such a cute place with a council square with a city hall in the middle and surrounded by historical center and buildings. Brasov has also one of the narrowest streets in Europe and on in addition, you may see a Brasov sign on top of the hill in the city.

5. Sibiu
Sibiu is another lovely cultural center tow in Transylvania region of Romania. Interestingly, it was ranked as Europe's 8th most idyllic places to live by Forbes back in 2008.

6. Sphinx
The Sphinx is a natural rock formation in Bucegi Mountains.

7. Barsana monastry
Haven't got a chance unfortunately to visit this place located up north near the boundary with Ukraine. However this lovely place is unique for its wooden churches of Maramures set on the hills.

8. Transfagarasan
Transfaragasan highway is approximately 150 km long and is one of the Romania's spectacular places to visit. These roads are also known for Top Gear in 2009. The roads stretches between Brasov and Sibiu city. This places was on top of my list where I wanted to go in Romania. Driving through those roads is a big challenge for drivers, and what I was surprised with was that people went there by motorbikes or even bicycles! Reaching up to the top is a relief and you will be surrounded by beautiful view of the natural, mountains, lakes and obviously with a view of those roads. Remember when I have mentioned that Romania is not such crowded by tourists? Then reaching up to Transfaragasan I chaned my mind!

9. Transalpina
Transalpina is another challenging roads in Romania, located in the Prang Mountains and it is one of the highest roads. Definitely the view would offer you something different!

10. Danube delta
Danube delta is where it meets the Black Sea. The Danube Delta is the second largest river delta in River and the river run across many countries, such as Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungary or Germany. Delta lies in Romania in Tulcea county.
