img_3601Along with pumpkins, Halloween and colorful trees fashion is giving us another reason to love fall. Overload of inspiration from fashion capitals is followed by two (Tbilisi Fashion Week and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) fashion weeks in Tbilisi. Last week I attended Tbilisi Fashion Week showcasing collections for Spring/Summer 2017. The concept behind TFW is to present new upcoming talents and their designs to public. You could find designers that have become experienced members of TFW, new designers who showcased their collections for the first time and even foreign designers like Lara Quint.

TFW has been covered by such international publications as British Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, GQ and many more. However, in order to see the full information and every single look from the shows I recommend you click here.

Trip to Amsterdam

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I LOVE traveling. I love seeing new places, exploring new cities. After every single journey I feel like I’m opening new perspectives and as a student in the heart of Europe I regarded traveling as a part of my education. When I am thinking of a new place I usually plan the trip to make most of it: I like to know which museums and sightseeing’s I am visiting and when; I like to know where I will have a dinner or when I will be meeting a friend but I guess that’s also creating my comfort zone in an undiscovered place, BUT when I arrive and get to the exploring, I usually let myself get lost, wonder around and get the real experience of the place.

Before my visit I saw Amsterdam as a city of Red Light District and legal marijuana but I was surprised to see the number of small art galleries and big museums all in one. I spent hours in museums staring at my favorite works from Von Gogh to Liechtenstein. But there was a lot more I wanted to see bit I was short of time.

Of course flowers! Tulips are one of the symbols of Holland and no trip to Amsterdam could have been without the flower market!

While I never considered it a fashion capital I got quite surprised with the fashion in the streets of Amsterdam. Center was usually filled with tourists but in small cafes like Bakers & Roasters (which I highly recommend for delicious breakfast)  breakfastand not touristic areas good-looking people were dresses in an effortlessly stylish way. The shopping was even better. Despite of the fact that I didn’t have “proper” time to shop I still managed to run through some high street brands, that are not available in Prague or some other European cities (monki, & Other Stories, Urban Outfitters, weekday and more).

As I figured the Amsterdam is also known for vintage shops. One of the most famous vintage shops is Episode. Honestly, I am not a huge lover of vintage but the range of clothing and the prices (!!!) is highly motivating. If you love vintage than get ready to spent hours digging for treasure with excitement!

Writing this I’m starting feeling very nostalgic. There is so much I have to see around the world yet, but Amsterdam is a city that I want to go back to and explore to the fullest. As I said Amsterdam truly became my new favorite city and I will look forward for seeing it again.

She has been an exceptional host and another reason that made my memories of Amsterdam so warm and welcoming. Along with everything else, as a dancer with Het National Ballet junior company she also gave me a tour of the opera building, which felt like my childhood dream 🙂 I’m looking forward to visiting Salome and Amsterdam again soon!

Prague Fairytale

I left home and after flying over 3000 km I arrived to my second home – Prague. It’s been 9 months since my last visit but it felt like I never left. Before coming to Prague for the first time I heard of the surreal beauty of the city, which would amaze by its lovely streets and breathtaking architecture. This time I was letting myself be a tourist, not to hurry and to look up to experience the treasure to the fullest.

To be honest, I had a real love-hate relationship with this city, while I was living here. You know, the kind of one you have with home. Sometimes you want to escape it, leave it, you get tired of it and want to try something new. But on the other hand, it is your comfort zone, it is a place you have explored to the fullest and have great memories on every corner of it. You have your favorite spots and wherever you will go in the future this place will always have a spot in your heart.
