Cel mai stresant aspect al meseriei de stilist

TRAFICUL de BUCURESTI! Toate bune si frumoase in meseria de stilist, rezist la efortul fizic impus de 10 sacose de haine intr-o mana, ignor privirile ciudate pe care le primesc de la colindatorii de prin mall-uri care ma cred nebuna sa cumpar atatea cand mall-ul e facut pentru plimbari si cafele, nu fac crize cand aflu ca modelul s-a accidentat cu o zi inainte de sedinta foto sau are probleme cu tenul etc.

Toate ca toate dar traficul …. ma doboara psihic! Spre exemplu astazi m-am invartit in cerc 1 ora si 1/2 incercand sa gasesc un loc de parcare langa Lipscani, sa pot returna hainute la Rozalb de Mura si sa ajung la o inalnire. (nota: cand returnezi haine incearca sa iti faci un plan de actiune asa incat sa ucizi doi iepuri …).

Daca nu as avea nimic de facut decat un pictorial pe luna, nu m-ar deranja faptul ca imi ia o zi sa filmez si 5 sa aduc si duc hainele inapoi!

Asa ca mai adaug un aspect negativ al meseriei, si trebuie sa mentionez ca pe langa aptitudinile pe care le presupune meseria in sine mai ai nevoie sa fii si bun negociator … cu “managerii” din parcarile publice, la care trebuie sa te inchini, sa dai spaga, sa zambesti si sa te rogi frumos, sa te lase si pe tine sa parchezi 2 minutele. Am incercat si varianta de a parca si a ignora prezenta lor dar nu a mersĀ  … pentru masina ….

Japanese vs Romanian Fashion Culture

“Also, many fashion-conscious Japanese still tend to think in terms of logos,” Sugatsuke added. “They go for the huge, conspicuously recognizable, emblazoned icon because they don’t want to pay huge sums of money on things other people won’t recognize or understand.” reports Kaori Shoji in an article I’ve just read in the Herald Tribune … must read the rest … here…

The same issue seems to be the problem for Romanian people – THE LOGO. Why buy a designer piece that doesn’t scream Gucci? Purchasing a designer item becomes an action of showing the world that you have money and belong to a different social class. Because designer clothes are expensive and not everybody can wear them – might they think! And not because designer clothes are expensive because of their quality.

The lack of Haute Couture in our country, seems to be another common point in comparison with Japan. We don’t understand fashion culture, Japanese people are new to it, as their haute couture is definitely – THE KIMONO

My question: Will Romanian people ever understand fashion, will we ever have haute couture?
