Париз во Скопје

Инспирацијата е мојот двигател, а моето последно патување во Париз совршена инспирација да ги изработам парчињата облека проследени на фотографиите. Плисирано здолниште и кошула од памучна ткаенина на преклоп. Елеганција со леснотија во движењето. Храброст со нагласена женственост. Црвен кармин, задолжителен.

Никој не се раѓа како жена, жена се станува. – Симон Де Бовоар

Убавото Дебар Маало е збогатено со уште едно кафуле кое плени со оригинален и топол дух. Тука може да испиете и убаво горко турско кафе на само чекор од градскиот парк. Станува збор за ноотвореното кафуле Kahawa.

Енергијата што ја шири овој локал ме потсети на неодоливиот Париз и времето поминато во локалните кафулиња, кои доловуват сличен, амбиент. Совршено се вклопи со мојот изглед и креации инспирирани од истоимениот град.

Кошулата со принт и плисираното здолниште во комбинација со црни високи потпетици надополнети со црвен кармин. Верувале или не, но Парижанките наутро никогаш не го напуштаат својот дом без црвен кармин. Црвениот кармин е нешто како заштитен знак за нив, еден вид “оклоп” за претстојните “битки” водени во текот на денот.

Страста е најубава шминка за една жена. – Ив Сен Лорен

Најдете си боја што ќе биде ваш заштитен знак. Многу е важно да донесете одлука која боја најубаво ви прилега. Французинките веруваат дека убавината многу повеќе доаѓа однатре отколку однадвор. Почнете да се гледате себеси како јунак во сопствениот живот. – Французинки (Џејми Кет Колан)

Модата не е нешто што се покажува само преку фустаните. Модата е и во воздухот, на улица, модата мора да биде поврзана со идеите, со начинот на кој живееме, со се што се случува. – Коко Шанел

Сакам да и се заблагодарам на мојата пријателка Стефи која ги изработи овие прекрасни фотографии. Нејзината работа можете да ја проследите тука P.S. Photography.

Vienna in White

Like some of you know, my favorite fabric is denim. I like to mix it up with everything. I had this idea to combine denim pants inspired by the 80’s and a white lace blouse. Usually I don’t wear lace but I like to experiment. If you want to show a little skin, definitely lace is the right option.

Recycled Jeans

Of all the ideas in my mind, the best ones stay the longest. Couple of years ago, I had an idea to make something interesting from my old jeans, so last year I decided to make a whole collection out of recycled denim. It took a while to gather all the denim I needed, and last autumn I finally started making the collection “Recycled Jeans”.

Two ideals, freedom – that not so many people have and feminism which unfortunately isn’t working in so many societies are reflected in the denim weave.

This collection includes dresses, skirts, a coat and a bomber jacket, all made from recycled jeans. I chose traditional male caps from the Balkan Peninsula as accessories to send a message that women deserve the same freedom and respect that men have.

Denim is a symbol of defiance against authority and oppression, people should wake up, look around and realize that this is the 21st century, everyone deserves a chance and women shouldn’t be oppressed and suppressed by society.

Scupini Romani

I’m very happy to present my work to you on the project Scupini Romani. It’s about the people who lived in the ancient roman city of Scupi (today near Skopje, the capital city of R.Macedonia).

Scupini Romani is an international festival dedicated to ancient Roman culture which is organized by Haemus, a center for scientific research and the promotion of Roman culture, based in Skopje.

It was an honor and a challenge to work on this project. I was doing research for more than two months before I started making these costumes. I used wool and linen materials and decorative strips with geometric shapes inspired by that period.

Clothing in ancient Rome was comprised of two pieces, tunic and toga. The tunic was made of wool, male tunic was called toga and female tunic was known as palla, which was worn over stola – a simple long garment.  The type and color of the tunic was an indicator of social status in the hierarchy of the Roman social classes. Banning people from wearing togas was considered a great punishment. Favorite colors were all shades of yellow, green and purple.

A new chapter

I am eternally grateful to the people who are in my life, people who believe in me, who inspire me, people who understand me and teach me to be a better person every day.

I wanted to be a fashion designer ever since I was a little girl, but when I reached adulthood, I lost my path of fashion for a couple of years, working other jobs.

I finally found the right path once again and now I’m more than ready for the challenge. When I was preparing my first fashion show in Belgrade which was part of the Balkan Art Fashion Event, I was doubting myself … as always. One thing that stuck in my mind was this phrase my sweet nephews told me – “Make it or break it”.

Magda at Balkan Fashion Art Event

The fashion show was a great success, everyone was pleased and satisfied with my presentation, but this phrase remained in my mind, and I think it would completely dispel my doubts every time I have one.

I’m at the beginning of a new chapter in my life, starting my new brand “Magda”, fashion blog and e-shop. I’m working hard to fulfill my dreams, you should too!

Lots of love

XOXO
