There was a time, fifteen years ago (I was 14), when my living space (shared with my brother at that time) was clean and totally dust-free. My garments were organised according to (firstly) the type of textile and (secondly) to the colour. It’s not like I’ve always liked fashion, but rather to look neat in tidy surroundings.
So, fifteen years ago, during ordinary X-mas shopping with my father, something called my name. A winter jacket. It wasn’t cheap, but I had to have it, so I proposed a deal to my Dad, that I would wear it until I graduate from Uni. And then my curse started…
All those 15 years later, I am still wearing this jacket, therefore, you can imagine that my education still lasts. Nevertheless, after such a long time with my oldest piece of garment, to let it go and buy another one seems incomprehensible, to me. So, am I really cursed, or am I just sentimental ?

When it comes to female’s side of this magical activity called dancing, things are slightly different. Let’s be honest, our acceptance of invitation to the dancefloor, means that for the next three and a half minute we will be pulled, tossed and swirled numerous times. Of course there’s always that one person who knows how to boogie, who got the moves that are perfectly synchronized with ours and who leads us safely from the beginning to the end of the song. Unfortunately, this person is very popular among ladies so it’s very difficult to get hold of him.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s always good to dance, whatever our partner’s skills are. It’s all about fun and spending time with people we like !!!!

I love dancing. Even, when I cook I always do a little dance around the kitchen. I don’t wanna brag, but my legs are never sore from dancing.
So, did I mention that I love to dance? I really do. Everybody does (!) and everybody can! But, sometimes some of us don’t have any idea how to start with it. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? If yes, here I am to give you some precious tips 🙂 All you need to do is to sway and to hold sway over the rhythm and obstacles. 😉 Usually, dance music is very catchy, so listen to it and find the right rhythm. Let’s get started!

When it comes to the subject of fashion, it’s worth to mention its problem – a waste! We think we’re all aware, that fashion industry is known as one of the most pollutive ones. Tons and tons of clothes are being bought and very quickly binned and easily forgotten. The media are full of information about pesticides used in cotton farms and sewage piping into water, or chemicals used to dye fabrics. But the truth is, what can we do if we only can afford fast fashion clothes, when sometimes that’s our only option? This is when the conflict begins. Usually, we can’t afford to buy Gucci, but we also don’t want to be a part of conscience attack on Mother Earth. Where is the compromise, or the happy medium?
To find the answer for that question we need to look back at the history and find if this problem occurred in the past…
Well, it didn’t. In the past, people appreciated the quality of fabric and its durability. Many successful dressmakers and tailors satisfied people around the World.
Thomas Burberry supplied the entire British Royal Navy, Christian Dior and Coco Chanel opened women’s eyes for modishness of their world. Giovanni Versace distinguished chic and style from kitsch.
All mentioned fashionistas (entrepreneurs) started as Crafters to get attention around potential clients. They didn’t become famous in the blink of an eye, though. They worked really hard to earn their recognition.
Nowadays many dressmakers, tailors, shoemakers or sewing machinists use high quality fabrics and make handmade products. And thanks to the power of the Internet, they can get appreciation equal to those on the top, even if it’s only the beginning of their careers.
So, maybe it’s a good idea to start using Etsy, instead of Ebay or ASOS. We believe, we are going to experience a big change soon. Perhaps finally handcraft will become more valuable as it used to be in the past, rather than sale in bulk.
The fashion houses want to dress certain kinds of society. If society likes it, not just human but the whole society will come back for it! Just look at the famous red carpet, which has grown into a spectacular, over the years. People choose an image they like and create their own style. Those images are inspired by fashion designers, stars, celebs, bloggers or just next door neighbour, who knows how to look good.
What we wear (consciously or unconsciously) is usually the way of expressing ourselves, from the simple human impulse to communicate and express feelings to the most extraordinary manifestations, such as events of emancipation or any rebel (as some people want to be seen as the rebels).
It just depends on the public point of view of the specific subculture group. People want to belong to specific subculture, with the same style, to feel like they’re not alone.
When you see how fashion touches people and moves people, you’ll find out a lot of expressions. So, what more can you ask from art? I do reckon, that fashion should be recognised as an art. Not since the definition of art have become more elastic, and not from Coco Channel’s time, either. But, since the oldest human civilization started to exist, where the application of Chinese embroideries were an artistic expression inspired by Imperial China. Aesthetic principles, the most refined techniques, all laden with concepts, and everything else what is subjected to the criteria of art. So, when we’re talking about art, I think (with no doubt) fashion is a part of it! Fashion is a part of life.
People live for a cultural experience, to learn something about themselves, throughout the human journey. Fashion is indispensable it this voyage
#3.14So, today is the 14th March. If Albert Einstein would have been in the land of the living, he would have celebrate his 139th B-day, today 😉 . He could have also celebrated a Pi Day, together with us. Pi day is an annual celebration of mathematical constant of 3,14 known as Pi. Because we hide behind this particular logo, we would like to tell you few reasons why we chose this constant. Since I remember, I always wanted to have my own company, and double Pi always meant to be its name. So, the only thing left to do, was to come up with the logo…
