Growing up creative

The power of growing, being and dressing differently..

Growing up in a creative environment led me to trouble, especially during a directorship time in South America . It was very difficult to get invited to a party for the second time, after showing up the first time in hand-made clothes, made out of  recycled hand-me-downs . It was also a frustrating kind of feeling…Oh well…

But on the flip side, it was amazing to see myself wearing what nobody else had in their closets.

That was a very long time ago. I was ten or eleven years old and I already knew how to crochet and how to sew, thanks to my maternal grandma, my mom and my Italian roots…

And that was how my recycling experience got started, because I took from the criticism and from being NOT popular and made the best out of it Here is how and what

 

 

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.

“Gianni Versace
