Happy Halloween y'all! 

I did not had the chance to celebrate it properly this year since i got sick with a stupid cold that made my whole week miserable.
I'll be celebrating tonight in my house with my lovely roomies watching George Romero's zombie movies and eating tons of junk food!

Sunday, October 16


If there was a special day during this week that kept me all excited and expecting, was definitely this one!. The day 4 on the BAFWEEK's program sounded really promising.

The day started really early in the morning, since the runway was starting at midday in the Palacio Paz at the Circulo Militar, only by special invitation for press and A.Y. Not Dead's guests.

By the time we arrrived, we were invited to gather all together in a beautiful room next to the one  the runway was taking place. We were pampered with some Beefeater's gin cocktails with lemon,/orange/grapefruit juice, which ended up being a very powerful alternative for my usual "black coffee+grapefruit" breakfast. Meanwhile, between cocktails and chats, people started arriving and that room turned out to be a little small for all of us and so our patience, since the show wasn't starting in time. By 12.30, that place was extremelly crowded and we all were kind of fed up and upset 'cause of the treat received by the staff people.

When they let us access to the room, we had an unpleasant surprise when we realized that we (press) would not have any seats for us so we had to pile up by the sides of the catwalk and the special guests; who had the luck of having the best seats and a perfect sight during the whole runway, which i found quite pointless since they did not have to capture every detail of the collection and then write about it. So, because of my 1.55 mts it was practically impossible for me to enjoy the runway i was most excited about and not even with my 12cm heels -even though i had a sprained ankle- i got to see nothing more than a sea of shoulders and a few details of the collection and the incredible hairdo the models had, which consisted on a very slicked down and tight ponytail that raise up above the head and fell down to the forehead.
After i slipped out between people and stand on tiptoes, i could watch the most colorful of all catwalks. This one was made of panels of  multicolor lights that went on and off. 

This collection, called "The Young Gods" took the idea of the youth as an all-mighty force. It was strongly inspired by the subcultures of punks and teddyboys, but in this occasion being illuminated by summer, going from dark to luminous and sophisticated garments after going under a mistic halo and a divine light.

Denim, was a constant in this collection, just like previous ones, but this time showing pieces like jackets, shirts, shorts and jeans with a washed and distressed effect. The oversized tops with provocative - and other very explicits- messages made their presence and so the buttoned-up sheer blouses with details on the collars. The white and the silver were the most powerful colors, along with the black, another color that defines this label with a strong rocker spirit. Others were the hot pink and the red combined with leopard and snake prints and all kind of stripes in materials such as leather, silk, cotton and nets, decorated with metallic studs and stones.

 The footwear, as it could be expected by this trendy label, was the oh-so-famous flatforms in silver laced up and with details of jute on the pink sole and other with studs. I dont know if it was because this is my favorite label or because they were actually pretty, but i just loooooved this shoes and they looked quite awesome specially in combination with those garments.


 The best clousure for this show was given with the appearance of a bride outfit, in this case by the model Naomi Preizler along with the groom, model Santiago Figueras, both dressed in a very rocker version, quite accurate and true to the spirit of A.Y. Not Dead.

Wow! feels good to be back!

After few weeks being away from everything, I'm returning with tons of energy for TFI's 1st Birthday, so i'm expecting October to be a month full of celebration.

Nothing feels greater than celebrating a year of sharing with everyone just the way i am. As simple as that, celebrate i have a place where i feel free to be myself and do what i love.

That is why a year ago i decided to name this blog The Fashion Imaginarium. It happens to be MY Fashion Imaginarium, this is an extension of myself and what is going on in my head.

This is what i love the most about having now TFI, feeling confident enought in my own skin to do what i really want to do and not what others wants me to do.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Tons of love

I can't believe i've been on the blogosphere for a year now! and Oh Yes! it's been one hell of a year!

I remember when i started TFI i was very disheartened and a bit sad. U all know how tough is the fashion business everywhere and i just couldn't find a way to show who i am and what i do. I felt like no one was giving me a chance, so that was when i decided to start something by my own and not waiting and depending on someone else's desicions. 

I believed on creating a little place for myself where i could show my work, but then i gave it a try on sharing my thoughts, preferences and somehow my personality in this blog. Day by day it became an extension of me... and i've been puting my heart and soul to this, which turned out to be my most precious project, the one i truly believe in.

I look back a year ago, when i started it and i didn't know a thing about blogging. I learned it all as i was going along... it was all testing, giving a try and daring to do stuff. 

I could say now, TFI has been one of my biggest achievements. With this i actually can say i started my carreer as a - stylist?, writer?- I feel like my voice is somehow being heard... i can't believe what i found on my way becoming a Fashion Blogger: meeting awesome people all around the world, great opportunities like assisting to fashion week and of course, the satisfaction of knowing what u do is worth it :)

Thank u, thank u, thank u!

Tons of Love!
