LONDON Fashion Week Recap: Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane

The Scotland born designer, Christopher Kane has caught attention worldwide. Kane’s approach to design is effortless. I love detail, especially some sort of embellishment that can transform a garment instantly. It’s always good to move out of your comfort zone each season, to learn new things and to challenge your senses” says Kane.

Kane’s S/S14 assortment is constructed for the fashion connoisseur who can recognize perfection. The cleverness of using tear drops as a design component is noteworthy. Additionally, the oversized flower print envision is impressive. In conjunction with the amazing design details, the use of A-line skirts produces a flattering silhouette that frames the body nicely.  The adaption of unique fabrications and composition cannot be overlooked.

Monday Moment’s Inside: Blog The Dreams


Name and Blog Name: Bárbara de Robles // BLOG.THE.DREAMS


Tell us a little bit about your background:

I’m from Barcelona, 25 years old. I studied law but my real passion is fashion, and I’m trying to work in this area. I’m also doing some jobs as a photography model when I can!

How did you start your blog and why?

I have been always a social network lover and I had profiles in plenty of them. I had accounts in lookbook, chictopia, etc. but I never did a blog until February of 2013. Yes, just 9 months ago… And now I regret not starting before!


What is your bog about?

I talk about fashion, my point of view in fashion. Also about tendencies and lifestyle. I recommend places to go and visit or have lunch in my city, as well!

What are the best and worst things about being a blogger?

The worst thing is the time you have to dedicate to it. Not just ON it, also in many other social networks to promote it, in taking the pictures, retouch and select them, etc. But the feedback you receive with it is amazing. I think it’s the best part, people telling you so many nice things and applauding your work… It’s great!

What are the things you like most about your career?

Professional career? I don’t have yet a professional career… but I would love to have a long and proudly career on fashion, and I am trying it with my blog. Hope one day I could answer this question with another story!


What are some of your top sources of inspiration?

Nowadays, Instagram is one of my favorite social network to get inspired. There are so many personal accounts and brand accounts, and thematical accounts that you can find there all of the inspiration you need.

What is a typical day like?

Well, now I’m just working on my blog, so I wake up and answer all pendent e-mails. Then I go to the gym and later I meet my boy, and photographer, to take new pictures for the blog. Normally I update my blog 3 times per week so I prepare the posts and answer all the comments people leave on my blog.


What are some of your greatest accomplishments?

Don’t make me sad! I’m just 25 years old… hahahhaa let me take my time to make some great accomplishment…! By the way, I’m on my way to reach what I had wanted for a long time… we’ll see if I get it!

What would be your advice to someone wanting to start a blog?

To be patient. Don’t try to get followers so easy. Take care of them and answer all their comments. They will appreciate that.


What’s your philosophy of life?

Trying to reach whatever that makes you happy. Cause trying is also comforting.

Monday Moment’s Inside: Zerxza


Name and Blog Name:  

I’m Epp-Maria and my blog is called Zerxza (or Zerxzastyle ,  that would be the blog’s address: www.zerxzastyle.blogspot.com)


Tell us a little bit about your background:

I’m a 20-year-old fashion lover and I grew up in Estonia that is a little country in Northern-Europe. My childhood has been one big bumpy ride – I grew up with my grandparents that were very controlling and old-fashioned so I was kept away from everything trendy, I couldn’t wear skirts/dresses, high heels, make-up, revealing tops, pretty much nothing. Deep down however I always loved fashion and envied the girls who could wear heels and make-up .. when I moved away from home after high school I finally got the chance to express myself and be the way I am – no more holding back! Also I met my boyfriend in high school and he has changed me a lot more confident about the way I am. Thanks to him I’m much more certain about what I do and I have to thank him for being the way I am right now!

How did you start your blog and why?

I’ve always loved blogging and writing down my thoughts – as a child I used to have diaries all the time or I just wrote short stories in the notebooks. When I got older and had a computer I blogged about my personal life but then due to life changes I stopped that. After moving away from home and being able to be free in terms of my appearance, the blog was kind of a “natural” thing to move to – somehow one day my boyfriend told me he’d like to take pictures of my outfit and there it started. We had no idea what we were doing but finding a reason and possibility to share my views in fashion was a big deal for me!

What is your bog about?

Let’s say my blog has a little bit of everything in it – it has been focused mainly on my personal style that I hope people find somewhat inspiring but besides that I’m trying to concentrate more on the fashion journalism part and write about different trends about my blog: like what’s in this season, what are celebs wearing etc. One popular section that is rather new in my blog is “Fashion rant” that means I write about some controversial trends in my blog from this funny/sarcastic perspective. People love to read articles that aren’t sugar-coated!


What are the best and worst things about being a blogger?

Thanks to the blog I’ve got some great possibilities. First of all, what’s the biggest plus in blogging for me is the confidence and energy-boost it gives! If you are tired and don’t want to go out but you know there are people who want to read your articles and see updates from you, you just have to push yourself – blogging means you won’t have those sloth-moments and you are always motivated to keep going. Also, seeing pretty pictures taken of you, you just can’t help but feel very good about you! Now on the business side thanks to blogging I’ve met some great people and that is only priceless. But on the worst side I can’t really say there is anything. Yes of course there are negative/hurtful comments but it just makes you stronger as a person and I wouldn’t say it’s that worse. If you make it a positive experience, there is nothing bad that can happen!

What are the things you like most about your career?

I’m not that sure I can call blogging a career right now because I still need a day job to “pay the bills”. However, I definitely hope one day it will be a genuine career because the thrill blogging gives is amazing – the shooting, the events, the people – it’s all once-in-a-lifetime feeling!


What are some of your top sources of inspiration?

I always love to say that inspiration is everywhere – you can find inspiration from the streets, from the surrounding you have (like seeing a very beautiful park and wanting to take pictures exactly there), but of course brands and other bloggers are a great influence. So overall I just like to keep my eyes opened in case a flash of inspiration passes by 😉

What is a typical day like?

All days are rather different but the most common one starts with morning coffee and a little breakfast that is sided by scrolling through my blogroll – I want to keep an eye on what’s going on in blogging world, what are other bloggers up to and what’s going on in fashion overall! Then we’re usually off to the city for some meetings (if we have any on that day) and then going to prepare the post by taking the photos for articles. In the evening I finish the post by editing pictures etc. It can all vary a lot but these are the basics of my days!


What are some of your greatest accomplishments?

I wouldn’t say I have particular accomplishments since I’m still really growing my blog – it’s rather young and I try to be active with writing nice, informative articles. However, for me a great thing was achieving over 500 fans very rapidly and having some brands collaborating already. I only hope to grow it bigger every day!

What would be your advice to someone wanting to start a blog?

I’d say go for it! The only thing that can stop you is yourself by setting boundaries but if once you step out of those borders, you’ll be able to do great things! Blogging needs passion and commitment because it’s no secret blogging will become your life! It can consume your days like you can’t imagine so you have to be ready for that challenge. If you have the passion and thrive towards something, then just go for it J Everything else will come on the way!

What’s your philosophy of life?

My philosophy, if so called, is a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson : “Wins the one who believes in winning”. If you believe in achieving something or if you simply believe in yourself, everything can become real! Be bold, be confident and smile!
