interview with Marcela from blog Fashionadictas/ razgovor s Marcelom sa bloga Fashionadictas

Today I'm presenting one wonderful blog . What I like about this blog is that it joins fashion and art. Every post is a comparison of a designer and a painter (or an artist). In that sense it is quite unique. Here is a short interview with the blogger behind fashionadictas.

Odlučila sam vam danas predstaviti jedan blog. Ono što mi se sviđa kod njega je što spaja modu i umjetnost. U tom smislu posve je jedinstven. Svaki post je usporedba dizajnera i slikara. Slijedi kratki razgovor sa blogericom koja ga je osmislila.  

1. How did you come to an idea to compare art and fashion?
 It came naturally. I'm a painter and licensed at art but I'm also studied fashion design.
 Fashion has been always very important for me, I like to express myself through me clothes. By other side, art is part of my life and profession, I want to find art also in small things, all motivate my creativity.
 By that I decided to join my two passions, and I created Fashionadictas, where the fashion is art.

Kako si došla na ideju uspoređivanja umjetnosti i mode? To je došlo prirodno. Ja sam slikarica i diplomirala sam umjetnost, ali sam također studirala modni dizajn. Moda mi je uvijek bila veoma važna. Volim se izražavati kroz odjeću. Sa druge strane, umjetnost je dio mog života i profesije. Želim pronaći umjetnost u malim stvarima, sve to motivira moju kreativnost. Zbog toga sam odlučila spojiti svoje dvije strasti i stvorila sam Fashionadictas, gdje je moda umjetnost.

 2. How do you prepare your posts?
 The posts take a lot of work. First, I select the fashion or tendency that I like or that interests me by it forms, colours and designs and I can match them by my own inspiration realizing a parallelism with a painter, photographer or sculptor.
 I'd love to do all my posts with my own drawings and paintings, but it will take more time for publication.
 I love to release artists that I like in my blog, such as young talents or established artists. Thanks to my profession I have a big biography of the artists that I like.

Kako pripremaš svoje postove? Za postove treba puno posla. Prvo izaberem modu ili tendenciju koja me zanima ili mi se sviđaju njene forme i dizajni i onda ih mogu spojiti sa svojom vlastitom inspiracijom ostvarujući pararelu sa slikarom, fotografom ili kiparom. Voljela bi raditi svoje postove sa vlastitim crtežima i slikama, ali bi trebalo puno vremena da to pripremim i izdam. Volim pokazivati umjetnike koje volim na svome blogu,mlade talente i ostvarene umjernike. Zahvaljujući mojoj profesiji imam veliki popis umjetnika koji mi se sviđaju.

 3. What are your experiences as a blogger?
 My experience is totally positive. I can express all my art with the blog, meet people of different countries and release to them different artists without getting out their homes.

Kakva su tvoja iskustva kao blogerice? Moja iskustva su posve pozitivna. Mogu izraziti svoju umjetnost kroz svoj blog, upoznati  ljude iz raznih zemalja te im pokazati različite umjetnike bez da izađu iz svojih domova.

 4. What blogs do you yourself find inspirational?
 Really I can appreciate that there are a lot of people like me with a great talent that they show in their blogs. I think with this system of publications there are place to everybody, each one creates with his own style and personality.

Koji blogovi tebe osobno nadahnjuju? Stvarno cijenim što ima puno ljudi poput mene sa velikim talentom koji pokazuju na svojim blogovima. Mislim da ovaj način publikacije omogućava prostor svakome i svatko može stvarati sa svojim vlastitim stilom i osobnošću.

 5. Do you have  a favourite painter and a designer?

Wow, a lots!
 I love painting of young painters and the experience of the big masters. I love Picasso and Dalí and in the fashion, I like a lot of designers, such as Gucci, Fendi, Christian Dior, Hèrmes, Louis Vuitton and as for  the Spanish fashion, I love Hannibal, Laguna, Roberto Verino and the colorful designs of Agatha Ruíz de la Prada.

Imaš li najdražeg slikara i dizajnera? Da, puno njih! Volim slikarstvo mladih slikara i iskustvo velikih majstora. Volim Picassa i Dalija, a što se tiče mode, sviđa mi se puno dizajnera, Gucci, Fendi, Christian Dior, Hèrmes. Od španjolske mode volim Hanibala, Laguna, Roberta Verina i šareni dizajn Agathe Ruíz de la Prade.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
