I’ve been obsessed with off-shoulder tops and dresses ever since I was a child. I remember the times of Beverly Hills 9020 serial and admiring Kelly’s and Brenda’s style, while I was just 7 y/o. The show’s soap-style drama was as amazing as its wardrobe — full of trendy, grungy, ridiculous fashions that every 1990’s teen coveted like crazy.
Welcome to my garden state of mind with today’s lush, colorful look for day and night. The ’90s was a time of high-top sneakers, velvet chokers, and loads of denim. While we wouldn’t like to revisit some of the trends (ahhh, the acid wash!), there’s plenty that we’re glad to see making a comeback this year and one of them are the floral print cami (slip) dresses.
I am not afraid to take risks when it comes to color and style – my clothes are a form of my creative self-expression. Pleats – a trend that has always been a must-have. Who does not own at least one pleated garment? Nowadays in every woman’s wardrobe, the pleated dress, skirt or top has become a timeless piece. Thanks to the early 90s and the genius designer Issey Miyake that, with his pleats line, gave us the practicality to throw dresses, jackets and suits in our suitcase, without having to iron them afterwards.

Finally, I can share some more photos fromMarrakech with you. Here in Royal Mansour‘s pink-walled labyrinth of enchanting gardens filled with beautiful plants, made me feel like I am in a “1001 Nights” dream.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
People often ask me, where I find my inspiration? The answer is always the nature. In nature I have more room to think, to day dream, to come up to ideas that you maybe would never have dreamt of. Everyone needs to pause at least once a day and spend a few moments breathing silently. I use these moments to think and consciously separate the past from the present and future. Responsibilities, obligations, unfinished business, family and friends can all survive without you while you take these moments for yourself. You deserve this time away. Everyone deserve to think peacefully, free from external pressure. No problems to solve, hands to shake, or people to please. Sometimes you need to make time for yourself, away from the busy world you live in that doesn’t make time for you.
