GABRIELA ATA, 21, PUBLIC RELATIONS STUDENT, ROMANIA
GABRIELA’S STYLE: My style is all about “less is more” and is influenced a lot by my fashion icon Audrey Hepburn and the 50’s. I like fine cuts, structural looks that put in light the architecture of a woman’s body, besides that I adore vintage clothes and accessories because they have a story to tell, they are unique and priceless for me. Anyway I like to think about myself as a versatile person so I like to mix vintage pieces with modern cuts, new clothes, accessories. . I don’t think I have a signature trademark or pieces I always wear but I have to admit that I have a lot of pencil skirts and 50’s dresses in my dressing and I can’t stop from buying vintage earrings and clips because they define my outfits.
INSPIRATION: The Past inspires me…i always said that you can’t have a future if you don’t know your past besides that I believe that nowadays all we do in fashion is reinventing the past in order to have something new!
On the other hand, Audrey Hepburn is for me the most beautiful woman ever, all about her inspires me, that’s why I saw my first collection as a tribute i brought to her. I just wanted to see more grace & class on the streets, more feminine looks, so I decided that I should be the change. !!! I like to seek for inspiration everywhere, starting from a song, a vintage video, a country , a city and ending with a leaf that just fell from a tree. Also I love to study people they are a great source of inspiration too. It is very important for me to have a challenge in fashion, for me it is like a game…you have to play it otherwise there’s no chance to win it….
FASHION + STYLE: Fashion is general…style is personal there is a big difference for me… Fashion offers you millions of choices, it has a lot of garments & colours to offer it is your style that has to do the decisions, not the money. I’ll never agree with somebody who blames money for not having style…this is something that you have to feel, it is like love …you can’t buy it!!! Also for me style means attitude, you achieve and develop it in time. It has to become unique and individual it is like your DNA.
THE MOST STYLISH CITY IN THE WORLD: “I believe that Paris is the place where i should have been born.” This is one of the things you’ll find in “my definition” on my blog. Yes Paris is for me the most stylish city in the world especially during the Fashion Week…that is the moment when you can literally see an explosion of beauty and art on the streets. For me Paris is the place where fashion was born.
HOLIDAY WISH-LIST: My wish-list has changed a lot this year because now I can create anything I want in my own atelier, so first of all I would like to buy new fabrics to start creating my next collection. Besides that i just NEED the new Chanel Noir fragrance, it is on the top of the list right now and also I have a crush right now on a GOLDEN turban that i saw in a vintage boutique here in Bucharest and i am going to do all my best to have it!
FALL FAVORITES: I love wearing hats, turbans, leather, metal …and a lot of burgundy during Fall.
