If you go to her blog right now, the first thing you’ll see is this quote: “Why trying to fit in when you were born to stand out?” Well, there are no better words to describe Vanina Handjiyska, the owner of Style Inspiratrice. I’m a huge fan of her blog and her personal style – it’s so feminine and unique. Recently Vanina launched her first capsule collection Week in Milan, which she created together with designer Slavina Petrova. Below you can read my interview with Vanina and the photos of her beautiful collection, which is available at ZIP store on Gladstone str. 20 – 22. Honestly, I want all the dresses! 🙂
Can you define the collection Week in Milan in three words?
Feminine, dynamic, sexy
What kind of woman wears your dresses?
Every single woman can identify with the collection because it is composed of elements that can be combined in endless ways depending on the occasion, time of the day (or night) and of the mood. However, this woman loves to be bold, remarkable. She loves travelling and stands out from the crowd.
What is your favorite dress from the collection?
I love them all – they are so beautiful and have their own signatures!
Today’s fashion is very democratic, it seems that the rules don’t exist anymore. Do you have your fashion rule you never break?
There are no limits for the imagination, the only rule is to be yourself.
The queen of fashion Anna Wintour has called trends a dirty word. What do you think of this statement?
There were lots of comments after the fashion weeks there are actually no trends anymore. There is something really inspiring in the fact designers are expressing their individuality. I perceive fashion as a way to express you and in this sense it is something that has to bring enjoyment.
