PACKING

Just realized I am going on another trip in less than a week. So, I decided to do a small postcard giveaway. If you guess where am I going, I'll send you a postcard from this place. How about that? I am going to 3 different cities in 2 different countries. Send me your ideas here and hope you are first [...]

The dress

So, I took an embroidery course by Lisa Smirnova, Russian artist located in Moscow. What you see here is my final project for that (6 week-long) course. It took me about 2 weeks to finish this portrait and I enjoyed every second of it.

Where do threads come from?

Slow fashion, second hand, and my attitudes toward clothes in general

Before 2015 I was not interested in slow fashion, or responsible consuming, or environmental issues. And still, I was mostly buying clothes in second-hand stores. My biggest motivation for doing so was not environmental; I wasn't even aware that most of the clothes in mass-market are not made in a safe, clean and fair way, and that the fashion industry, in general, [...]
