"REALLY, REALLY, RIDICULOUSLY GOOD LOOKING PEOPLE"
We are all different with one distinguishing similarity; we all have that special place in the back of our minds, the “box” as we’d like to name it, in which we store our biggest dreams, greatest fears, unspeakable wishes, positive heartbreaks, good & bad memories. The box opens up in infinite timing, triggers off our subconscious, which eventually, in a very interesting way, unravels and mingles in our everyday life. Mingle we said? Let us rephrase it; it leads our everyday actions.
Take a case that we all have experienced; when we want to protect ourselves from something hurtful that has left its mark in the past, we instantly turn to the box and seek peace of mind in our own personal dreamland, where no man is allowed and nothing is permitted to cross the mind borders.
In our case, Fashion is our Dreamland. Because fashion is art. Art is knowledge. Knowledge is freedom. Freedom is breathing. Breathing is living. We grew up feeling it all around us, we built our own characters through it, we sought it in our journeys, we formulated opinions and we let it determine our life choices.
Through fashion we develop, we get inspired; we create images that form our reality or perhaps our own personal dreamland-you name it. Because it feels safe there, it feels like home…
