FIESTA, FIESTA, FIESTA! I’m finally done with this book. The more I read it, the more I wanted to finish it. Some of you might be wondering why I’m talking about books. The answer is pretty easy!
The Fashion world I live in is full of ignorant/superficial/full of themselves kinda like people. It is so annoying that I have to say it out loud. NOT all of us are like that, and that still keeps me positive about making part of this world.
Have a lovely week full of good stuff!
BOW TIE: David Quilaguy
Estamos en medio de esta semana y hasta el momento todo va muy bien. Ha sido una semana muy tranquila en la cuál he trabajado en varios de mis proyectos y he visitado algunos de mis amigos que no veía desde hace mucho tiempo.
En esta semana parece que he tenido la misma co...Read More
It’s been almost a year since I have this idea of going to Tokyo. Sounds crazy that someone who’s got no clue about a culture simply wants to go there and start from scratch. Tokyo will be my next destination, at least that’s what I think. In the mean time I will enjoy and learn as much as I can in lovely Berlin.
Have a good monday!Read More
Well known as ‘Daisies’ for the English speakers.
Summer seems to be around the corner. I basically need/must have new clothing for this summer, at least a couple new pieces.
Since I was a child, I’ve struggled finding the right shirts for me. Some of them are either too colorful, kitsch or simply make me look like a 60 years old powerful guy who’s looking for a call boy (Definitely not my thing).
Destiny seems to be smiling at me during the last few weeks, why ?
Pretty easy: I got this mail from Paul v. Alpen *1886, asking me if I would like to be part of a project. At the beginning I always hesitate about collaborations, most of them have to do with items that I wouldn’t wear...Read More
It’s finally weekend!
I feel like going out with friends, visiting my family, having dinner with some special. Oh Saturdays! Why are you so amazing!
Not really a fan of Picasso but this ‘ Jackeline with flowers’ is one of the pieces I love the most. Underneath: bag from the Spanish designer David Delfin.
It’s friday. I’m alone and have pretty much lots of things that have to be done ASAP.
Enjoy this weekend Fashionistos!Read More
DEGAS MEETS THE CONTEMPORARIES
Since I was child ( NOT A LONG TIME AGO ) I used to play to mix politician pictures with clothing pictures I found on Vogue. My parents used to think that was quite weird, usually it is. A couple days ago after seeing a picture of the ” Mona Lisa” all swagged, I though : I can do better than that!
It was easy to turn ”La Famille Bellelli” into a bunch of 21st century fashionistas. Wang, Marras, Saab and seem to be the one’s to compose this illustration.
Dear Acne designers,
could you be so kind and stop making such amazing clothes that will empty our bank accounts!
I found myself looking for some clothing ( summer clothing ). Opened my laptop, typed ACNE.COM and I found this gems. Excellent pieces of clothing, perfectly manufactured. They combine the best materials to offer protection and comfort. I guess I better start saving money A.S.A.P if I want to get myself some of these for Summer!
Esta marca Sueca no deja de sorprenderme con sus diseños y calidad a la hora de producir ropa.
Aunque la tienda que está localizada en Berlín no sea la mejor ( NO LO ES ). Pienso que esta marca es una de esas pocas que tiene ese ” Je ne sais quoi” . Minimalismo a flor de piel que refleja la firma y el estilo Escandinavo...Read More
Falling in love with an operating system?
It seems more possible than ever. Last night I had the chance to go with a friend of mine and watch this movie. I have to admit crying a bit about it, somehow it’s very sad when we think we found something that will last forever but it doesn’t. This type of movies just make me realize how inevitable it is for us to fall in love with our cellphones.
We twitt, instagram and facebook everything that happens, sad but true. We are in touch with our cellphones even more than with our friends. Not becoming addicted to my phone turns out to be harder everyday, doesn’t it?
Let me show you something really good I found about this film.
I did really like this futuristic but optimistic look some of the characters were pulling off...Read More
It has been a very interesting week. I have lived new things during the previous days. New people have come across my life, people who I think will represent positive changes in many aspects of it. Although I’ve been pretty busy during this week, have made sometime to meet friends and get things arranged on time.
I won’t really talk about this outfit, since you all now I am not the GUCCI fabulous guy-like. I will just say this look is minimalistic, attracts the people to watch the jacket due to it’s wonderful print.
Enjoy your week!
Someone who means a lot to me just celebrated her birthday. I was not sure what to give her, since it’s always quite hard for me to know what people love or want to have. I simply decided to buy this exclusive Gucci silk and painted some flowers on it. Does it look like a great gift?
Am I the only person who’s closet is about to explode? A couple months ago I decided to stop shopping as a maniac, somehow I realized that my closet was getting full of pieces I wasn’t even going to wear. Why did I have the impulse of buying things I didn’t need?
Not following trends or anything, it was simply a feeling of getting a new piece of clothing the one that pushed me to buy a certain item, whether shoes, jackets, blazers or bags. Massive advertisement load our heads with trash we don’t need and push us somehow to feed this massive/destructive Capitalism almost all of us serve.
Is there anything we can do to stop it ?
We don’t have to stop it, if someone feels comfortable acting that way, they should be able to do it...Read More
It’s been a long weekend, so much to do! I pretty much took some time to hang out with friends of mine I had not seen in a long time. Since I haven’t been feeling the best on these last days, I decided to ask my friends for advice on some topics like time management and how to make the best out of this time I’m spending in Berlin. It is very helpful when you realize that maybe you are not wasting your time. My friends have been through the same stage of life where you don’t really think what you’re doing is taking you anywhere. Positive thoughts lead to good things, but let me remind you all, doing is pretty much 90% of making things happen.

Desde hace un par de semanas no escribo un post en Español, creo que hoy es uno de esos días en los que extraño hablar mi idioma materno, es uno de esos dias en los que quisiera tener a mi familia cerca, abrazar a mis mejores amigos y de alguna u otra manera sentirme cómo en casa. Esta aventura la cuál llamamos vida, empezó para mí alrededor de 2 años atrás cuando decidí abandonar todo lo que conocía e irme a uno de los países más raros de mundo.
Nunca sabré si fué la mejor decisión que pude tomar, simplemente me siento agradecido de haber podido aprender tanto, de haber tenido que pasar por pruebas las cuáles jamás pensaría poder superar. Aunque amo esta ciudad, muchas veces me siento fuera de lugar...Read More
How to make your trousers look skinnier ?
I think we all have had the same problem, getting amazing trousers but realising they are not as skinny as we’d like them to be.
That’s there why I’d like to show you how to make your trousers look skinnier.
All you need is, trousers, chalk, scissors, sewing machine, pins and of course a measuring band.
Cómo hacer lucir tus pantalones más delgados
Creo que todas las personas hemos pasado por el mismo problema, comprar pantalones que se ven muy bien, pero desafortunadamente no tienen la ” bota ” de la manera que nos gusta.
Por este motivo, me gustaría mostrarles paso a paso cómo cambiar la manera en la que sus pantalones se ven.
Los materiales son muy básicos : Pantalones, tiza, tijeras, maquina de coser, alfileres y una cinta de medición.Read More
It’s been quite a long time since I posted, a new job opportunity just came out and I feel like things are finally starting to get better. For example, that lovely yellow scarve that I’m using, was a gift from Alex.
It was simpy good to use this on Spring, it offers you comfortability and keeps you warm enough to wear trench coats.
Like I said, things are getting better for me and hope they keep up this way!
Han pasado un par de días desde que publiqué algo en mi página, el motivo de la ausencia es muy simple. He conseguido un nuevo trabajo cómo Galerista, así que el tiempo para dedicarle a mi blog se vió un poco reducido.
Las cosas en general han ido mejorando al pasar de los dias y me siento cada vez mejor, he empezado a recibir obsequios por parte de personas que ...Read More
American Apparel, continuously keeps surprising us all with Ad campaigns that seem to be taken out of a Mega Ad creator Machine. Most of them are so shocking, whether it’s oversexualized, amazingly creative or simply cool, seems like this type of advertisement has been working for the label since 1995. People cannot avoid the fact that this is really an-eyecatcher of advertisement ads.
Here’s the official text for this campaign
She is a merchandiser who has been with American Apparel since 2010. Born in Dhaka, the capitol of Bangladesh, Maks vividly remembers attending mosque as a child alongside her conservative Muslim parents. At age four, her family made a life-changing move to Marina Del Rey, California...Read More

ZARA S/S 2014
KENZO S/S 2014
Phillip Lim S/S 2014
These are some of the hottest looks I’ve found for us. As you can see, there are many options out there to not look like the typical – guy – with -short we all don’t like. I am not a fan of Gladiator Sandalds but I’ve seen pretty much cool looks, I could give them a chance this coming Summer.!
Acá están algunos de looks de esta temporada que me han gustado mucho, las opciones van desde precios muy basicos hasta los elevados precios de ropa de diseñador. Creo que las opciones que tenemos esta año son variadas y sin duda algunos nos hemos visto identificados con los lookbooks que han sacado algunos de nuestros diseñadores favoritos!Read More
Yes, Jared Leto. Why? Amazing suit combination, not usual for the Oscar’s and more edgy than most of the outfits we had the chance to see on the red carpet.
One does not simply go to the Oscar’s in shorts! Actually this doesn’t apply to the talented Pharrel Williams, he can pull 100 outfits and look really good. You’ve been forgiven, this is not a fashion crime.
Looking like a good boy helps, besides a good/classic suit always make us look good ( as long as its properly tailored for our bodies)
Looking very sharp in his Burberry suit and shinny shoes! Good outfit, I would have personally added some colour to it, but Jared Leto got that covered ….
Jeonga Choi for LeFashionisto
It’s been a long time since I made an interview! Gotta get back to it ASAP!
For that reason I have decided to feature this talented designer who I met back in 2013 during the Urban Spree, she had all these amazing hats on her stand, they all ( the hats ) kept telling me ” Take my home with you ” – Seriously, no need to exagerate at all. Such a talent and quality are hard to find, at least not at very reasonable prices.
Here’s some of the things Jeonga has to share
Where are you from ?
I was born in Seoul but I moved to Australia when I was 21 years old.
Why did you decide to focus your main product towards head accesories?
I always liked to work creatively and to create something with my hands. I liked sawing and started to make my own beenies just for fun...Read More
Xiaomeng Yang Fall / Winter 2014
This one is for all of us, guys who love fashion and would like to see a bit of what’s going out there. As you know, I am a big fan of colours and honestly, London FW brought some spicy to the runway. This are some of the outfits that caught my eye instantly.
Posts cómo este van dedicados a aquellos que así no compren mucha ropa, les gusta saber que está pasando afuera en el mundo de la moda. Me considero un fan de las nuevas tendencias o al menos de los diseñadores que intentan innovar en sus diseños, ya sea en cuestión de materiales, colores o texturas. Algunos de las mejoras ideas las he visto en la semana de la moda de Londres.

El Hombre Contemporáneo
Así cómo Lipovetsky considera la imagen como el artífice máximo de la civilización superior que ha tenido lugar en la historia, en mi opinión personal no hay otra manera de describir al hombre contemporáneo. La moda es considerada cómo una categoría de la existencia individual y colectiva, que en la misma medida en que se ha hecho total ha venido a ser universal, esto sin duda ha sido lo que he visto en la comunidad masculina durante los últimos años.
La moda se ha convertido en parte de nuestras vidas, influye y cambia nuestra manera de analizar a quiénes nos rodean, el modo en el que nos comportamos y la manera en la que nos sentimos basados en el nivel de satisfacción personal que genera el verse ” bien” – Este ti...Read More

The Male Skirt
Winter, Winter. When will you finally go away? – I don’t really care about it anymore, as the days go by I learn that people can also survive without the sunshine. It changes your mood but somehow you learn how to deal with it, while walking through the street of Berlin I realize the amount of people starring at me just because I wear a skirt, is this awkward? . People are simply not ready to see something different, especially not in this city, where half the population is underdressed and not precisely because money issues. It certainly not my duty to criticize somebody else’s outfit but at least I don’t expect to be criticized if I wear something unsual! People, people – When will they stop being so boring?

Old Style Fashion
It is time that Gentleman start bringing back the old style of wearing clothes, even though the perfect standard for men is nowadays the Zara type ” Skinny and tall”, there is a different way to mix all that and make you look quite different. I do believe we can make the difference, in such a world, where every five minutes trends are changing someone who can make a difference is needed.
I am not talking about the ” streetstylers”, also known as fakers, people who actually get dressed in a particular way only the be captured by photographers. There only a 10% of personal style in it, the rest is just a disguise of ” I want to be a 5 minutes star”.
Be original and fuck all the trends out there, or if you are going to follow them, put some of your style in every outfit y...Read More

CAPSULE A/W 2014 Berlin
“The perfect lifestyle experience” — that’s how I would describe the Capsule event held in Berlin during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week from the 14th – 15th of January at the Postbahnhof.
I was invited to cover the event, and what better way to arrive than via an “Über”-Berlin chauffer. The driver picked me up at my home and graciously opened the door for me just minutes after entering my trip details and preferences via the App. It was then that I realized that today was going to be even more special than usual ( : D )
But enough about me, let’s focus on what really matters here: CAPSULE!
Capsule is a fashion and lifestyle trade event that combines high-end, progressive brands and independent designers, presenting a curated assemblage of collec...Read More

Fashion week is over! I don’t really know how to feel, after having rough months I felt really good by having the pressure to assist to Fashion Shows and pushing myself to do it actually felt good, this week already started with tons of work, meaning: I AM HAPPY!!
Have a lovely week and don’t forget to be stylish in your very own way
La semana de la moda ha finalizado, de hecho ha sido la mejor semana de la moda que he vivido en estos años. Fué interesante, el hecho de que haber visto a mucho B-LISTERS no fué muy agradable pero tengo que lidiar con el hecho de que este mundo de la moda esta lleno de gente que no vale la pena y otros que en realidad son muy interesantes...Read More
I had the chance to see a couple shows during this Fashion week, some of them were executed in a way that leads me to believe that Fashion is dying and all what’s left is ”FAST – FASHION” – However, by knowing already the label ( Brachmann), I knew exactly what I was going to find, it was something I’d like to call a Fashion orgasm. That’s the term I use for collections and items of the Industry that really catch your eye and you know that you need to have them. They are just not simple pieces you just buy and use a couple times, they become and stay as that single one piece you just want to use a couple times and only for special occasions.
Brachman presented during this Fashion week what I’d like to call the ” Perfect Gentleman” – Simple, elegant but never overd...Read More
I decided to be a Brachman Gentleman for the day and so do you! I just love those times where I can make myself step out from all the massive hipster consumption and population in Berlin, this is one my ways to stop becoming a mainstreamer.

Timm Süßbrich has shown to the visitors of this Fashion week what ” Lässigkeit ” means. The doors of the show were opened at 2 pm and you could already tell how excited the public was, although I am not a fan of minimalistic clothes as I think they are missing some spirit and the drapping/patterning I usually prefer, I have to say I liked this collection in a certain way. The fabrics used for this Collection were really comfortable, the cut minimalistic but well combined made from this collection an eye-catcher, most of the best outfits were designed for women as in my opinion the ones for men were not really that interesting. I would totally recommend this collection and this particular designer for someone who wants to go for minimalistic the look.Read More
It was a fantastic night full of creativity, properly/creatively dressed people. The event that took place at the Gemaelde Galerie in Berlin was a cooperation between ESMOD BERLIN and the well known SHENKAR COLLEGE in Tel Aviv and also the Goethe Institut, this time some of the samples from designs made by students of the Shenkar College and Esmod were shown here in Berlin, I have to say I was amazed by the concept they have developed and how just a simple idea can become a garment. It was also very nice to see how all the students and people were excited to hear the speech from Silvia Kadolsky ( director of ESMOD Berlin ) and Rachel Berman ( Senior Lecturer and Local & International Activities Manager, Shenkar College ) gave.

Going back to Russia
It was funny how I have almost never used this coat, although it looks good it reminds me somehow to Vladimir Lenin. Not a number one fan of him but I am not here to discuss any political view.
I usually use this coat only for very special occasions ( Opera, Vernissage, etc…) – Tomorrow is the beginning of the Fashion week, to become a bit more selective was my goal for this FW and it seems like I made it, I will only assist to a couple events and will avoid wasting my time like I did during the past.
Let the CATWALK begin!

Berlin Fashion week 2014
Another Fashion week?
- Yes, get ready to see a bunch of people getting dressed like they’re going to the Circus/freak convention, I used to feel more excited about fashion weeks before. It somehow turned into something routinary, maybe it does have something to do with this city where everyone likes to call themselves artists, designers, fashion lovers. I love this city as I never loved any Metropoli, I feel I can perfectly fit in here but sometimes I ask myself if there is anything else to do here.
As I’ve talked to some of my friends who are artists or designers, we all got a conclusion...Read More
New Year means new things I have to accomplish! I am ready to start cleaning my life and focus on things that really matter.
For example focusing more on my career and close people ( Family and friends ) instead of waisting energy on people who do not really worth it, they just drag my Fashion potential out haha. I have to be finally accepted on Fashion school and visit my family in Colombia.
Tons of love my dear readers.

Where to start ?
I think the best would be to say THANK YOU for all the good and bad things that happened during this year, for all the good and bad people we had to meet during this 2013, for those things you never thought you could accomplish but still you tried and started to live your life.
This year was caotic but I enjoyed every single day of it, traveled, met new people, decided to leave people out of my life.
Moving more into a professional atmosphere I would like to thank you all for visiting and reading this blog. In this short time I have accomplished a lot! Collaborations with two companies, press status for a Fashion consulting company in Mexico and one of the pictures I took, appeared on the Coach Magazine.
It was simply a good year and the next one will be even better!
JIL SANDER UPCYCLED COAT
I got this coat from a very good Vintage retailer, quality is something you can expect from a Jil Sander. However, the coat itself looked quite boring, too minimalistic. I was not planning on modifying the tailoring but at least give the coat a younger interpretation.
This is what you need to make this coat look better:
Coat, thread and needle, scissors, buttons.
Cut the needle that keep the old buttons sewn to the coat.
Clean the excess of thread
Sew the new buttons to the coat, make sure they properly fixed to the coat
Now the coat should look more like this, only by changing the buttons the coat already looks quite different and not like taken from a time machine of the 60´s
Christmas is around the corner, I’m still wondering what I will get on the 24th. The most important thing is that I will be spending time with friends and family ( my second family ) – This is my second time celebrating Christmas without my parents, it feels somehow weird but it’s just the way it is.

Black and White
Sometimes I feel like running out of inspiration, living in a city where few of us struggle to be well dressed while no one gives a damn about it, makes things quite hard. However, there are thousands of inpirational pictures out there that make me feel I can keep on doing this.

Ready for Winter!
Long cold days have just arrived, it seems this Winter I won’t have to spend it alone, besides having company I just got this new coat that keeps me pretty much protected against this cold Weather.

The time has arrived, H&M may rise its prices!
Thank God of Fashion for the good reasons.
H&M head of Sustainability, told AFP prices might rise in a long term. This might not represent a threat to one of the biggest Fashion retailers of our days. After all the news coming from Bangladesh, Infraestructure problems and the very low wages a worker earns ( $70-50 euros) a month, it was time that at least one of the Monsters of Fashion said something.
After watching some documentaries about the textiles that cannot be recycled, I realized there is a huge labour to be done. We shall buy more quality products that last longer than just a couple months...Read More

It was a Winter night and while freezing my ass off outside I decided to get myself into any place where people seemed to be happy and willing to give some human warmth. A party! yes, that´s where I came in, beats of Electronic Music and what seemed to be a Famous DJ kept the party moving. I saw a girl, more like someone like I had seen before but she spoke my language, I mean Spanish. After talking for five minutes I realized this girl was not just another party monster, she was a talented Photographer who had something to say to the world.
Her name is Zarahlena, Photographer by heart. Talented and incredibly amazing human being with Mexican/German blood in her veins.

As the whole Tartan trend came back a couple weeks ago, my body and my fashion sense got sick. All over the Blogosphere were scarves, coats, trousers to be seen. It became so viral that I got quite over the whole thing, I just hate when something like that happens, as I’m conscious that bloggers shall report and inform about the trends some of them can actually be original and make something different.
That is basically the reason why I have decided to create my very own trend, one that looks better than Tartan and all the others ( at least I like to make myself believe it looks better ) – It is basically the trend of wearing artsy items and looking better than everyone else.
Anyways, I have made this Foulard out of really accesible materials and the cost for such a piece will...Read More

It feels like Winter has finally arrived, minus temperatures are part of my everyday. I’ve sadly seen how people already started to change their behaviour, a smile seems to be missing everywhere, being nice is something only a few keep during this cold season. I have also seen how people already embraced the black in their lifes, no more colours are to be seen. It seems like life has been taken away from us, as I was walking through a famous street in Berlin ( Friedrichstrasse ) all I saw was people wearing black coats, scarves, trousers. More than 10 stores had only black as it’s main colour for this Season.
There are more things to wear out there, people don’t even need to have lots of money to change a little bit the way they dress...Read More
What a week! Now since I have quitted my job seems like I will have more time for blogging and developing some of my projects and things I’ve left behind. For example more DIY’S, art and French.
I went to a crafting event at how.do where people could actually show what they can create with their hands, I decided to create a statement sweater, the main character at this time will be Angela Merkel.
Let’s see how this DIY SWEATER turns out to be
Ahora que he renunciado a mi trabajo parece que tendré mucho más tiempo libre para desarrolar esos proyectos que he dejado de lado por no tener tiempo. Pintar, aprender Francés y por supuesto trabajar en mi blog.

It seems like I’m getting obsessesed with bow ties ! Originated during the Prussian wars on the 17th century the bow tie has been part of Fashion history and has survived multiple wars and mutated itself to be an item worn only by few people.
It might also suggest the Iconoclasm of an Old World, the desire of looking like the above and mostly the attitude of not really carying what people say accompanies the bow tie. As a future fashion Designer one must start somehow to sell its products and let the world know what I am made for.
My idea would be creating customized bow ties, made out of Italian leather, some fabrics from London might be used as well.
Is it a great idea?

DIY STATEMENT BAG
Bags have accompanied the human race for thousands of years but it was until the 15th Century when they became a statement in society and started to represent status in most European countries. Today I’ll show you how to create your very own bag, it’s not so hard as you all might think. You just need some inspiration a couple tools and the passion to do it.
Let’s have a look
Las maletas han acompañado a la humanidad desde hace siglos, sin embargo empezaron a formar parte importante de la sociedad en el siglo XV, principalmente en Europa al representar status. Hoy les mostraré cómo crear un bolso único en pocos pasos y gastando muy poco dinero.
You will need a novelty container, a piece of leather, ruler, scissors, a pen, screwdriver, screws, a soldering iro...Read More
The last days of nice weather are just gone, Winter is just around the corner. Shorter days and the feeling of cuddling and staying in bed will be my everyday, I guess I’m ready for that.

Fashion Winter shoes are a must if you live in a Country where Winter lasts more than 5 months! I’ve picked some of my favourite for this season, most probably I’ll choose the Creepers, they offer me an amazing look, a good price and most important ( not really ), they will protect me from this cold temperatures.
This Winter will be completely different, once again I don’t have my family with me but a bunch of friends and special people that I’ve recently met whose presence make my life full of joy and happiness.
It’s a bit weird thinking that I want to get as many shoes as possible for this Winter and knowing that where I come from (Colombia) someone would be greatfull to get at least a pair of shoes...Read More

How to get accepted into Fashion school?
I’ve asked myself the same thing over and over, seems like there is a certain criteria while checking one’s folio and work that make them think you fit within a profile or their criteria.
I think the hardest assignment is to get accepted in the school you love the most, just to leave it clear this is not one of those ‘ I HATE JUDGES’ posts, is just a post where show you some samples of my work throughout this years, these are mostly collages and drawings that I have decided to start digitalizing.
I hope you all like it

SUPERHERO- We all had our very own heroes, in my case things were always quite different. I was a child whose biggest fear was having his Fashion magazines destroyed and his clothes not fitting anymore because of growing up. I was obviously a healthy/social child but Superman, Batman and Green Lantern didn’t really ever looked like my model of heroes at least not when it comes to Fashion.
When the whole Blogging world started around 8 or 9 years ago I felt Impressed of
A. Having a sufficiently good Internet connection to check on websites
B. The ability of bloggers to put outfits together
C. The power and growing factor all this blogs had
At some point I realised only few of them were true to their mission and were really fashion lovers and thought like ones.

- Fashion Interview -
This week has been pretty much running everywhere around in Berlin (Mitte, Kreuzberg, F-Hain) – I didn’t really even had time to organize a shooting for this week, this pictures where taken in a short 15 minutes pause we had while heading to the Headquarters office from HOW.DO where I had the chance to meet the whole team and also to Interview them and get to know what the actually do here in Berlin.
How.do is an app for Iphones where you can basically learn to create things step by step, just like a bow tie or whatever you can imagine. We had so much fun on that day, although the team was a bit shy at the beginning we found the way to make them speak and show their work to the camera.
This is going to be our first video fashion interview, it sounds so freaking am...Read More
sounds quite interesting, doesn’t it ? Anyways, I’ve been feeling better since last week and decided to shoot again a couple pictures, and why not wearing my really cool DIY bow tie for the shooting. Things seem to get better in my life, the amount of readers I’ve received is incresing. THANK YOU is all I can say to my dear readers.
Fashion business is my way to show the fact that I don’t love how people usually get dressed to go to their offices, I used to work for a very formal office when I studied Economics, I know what it is like having to wear a suit from Monday ’til Friday – BORING – but my little Fashionisto and Fashionista, there is always a way to escape of the routine and make yourself look amazing.
Small accesories could change the way you look and mi...Read More
DIY BOW TIE
How many times do we actually see a guy wearing a bow tie?
Answer : Once every year, that is definitely a shame, we look so cute and classy once we’re wearing a bow tie, it makes us look like gentleman ready to take our couple to a ball or a very elegant party. In fact it might also be used and combined with daily outfits and give a touch of elegance without making you look overdressed.
This DIY is for those boys who want to look elegant and for those girlfriends or boyfriends who want to have a very stylish person right next to them, it is really easy to do and will take around half an hour.
Some research from Wikipedia
The bow tie originated among Croatian mercenaries during the Prussian wars of the 17th century: the Croat mercenaries used a scarf around the neck to hold...Read More
Le Fashionisto’s Birthday
Today is my 20 something birthday. This 2 years have been so intense that I already feel like if I was 30, it is quite hard to describe the bunch of feelings I have while writing this post. As you all know this blog is mostly about Fashion, but I feel people shall see the person behind this website. David is my name, Bogota my hometown and Berlin the place where I live, moving from Colombia to start my life’s trip one of the best desitions I’ve ever made . I ask myself what’s going to be from my life in a couple years because I cannot even manage what happens month to month. This last 3 months have been full of surprises, deceptions, new people I’ve met...Read More
Trench coats, how not to like them. They might be your salvation from the cold Winter. The fact that they are not puffy makes from them my very first choice when it comes to get warm in this cold Weather, just like every single day I decided to use my bike to go to work – Surprise – 4 degrees out there. Seriously? Little Fashionisto you have to accept the fact that temperatures are basically dropping down and in just a matter of months we’ll reach the zero degrees. But who cares, as long as I have my Jackets and some Chocolates with me I’ll survive. This week has been basically hard, I have been thinking I’m only giving steps back, I just have to be patient and stay strong until it all goes away.
Btw – My very first DIY will be published on Sunday
Have a great day
Upcycled Leather Jacket? That is definitely possible! I’ll show you how to do it. The only thing you might need is a Jacket that you’re not using anymore, the sleeves could be ugly/damaged, 2 hours, scissors, sewing machine and the most important is – ATTITUDE- that’ll make it even easier.
I’ll show you the process with pictures, it is definitely easier to understand and doable. I decided to do this because I did love that Jacket until it started to get damaged, throwing it away was an option but the satisfaction of making my very own clothes pushed me to upcycle it.
It doesn’t take that long to have this Military DIY done, just get the materials and just start doing it...Read More
Summer is oficially over, I used to be the number one Summer hater of whole Germany, the only fact of having more than 15 degrees made me desire moving to Finland or some country with a kick-ass low temperature. Now that Summer is over I enjoyed it so much and I’m not really feeling like getting into Autumn.
The only one thing I do like about this season is the fact that you can wear layers and mix them with freedom, as long as they look and you feel warm there will be no problem at all.
This type of arsty jackets are always keeping me warm, besides being an eye-catcher
Stay tuned for more outfits

Yes it is true! I made this coat, I had it reserved for a couple months and to be honest with you I only used it one time for a party in Berlin, most of the people actually think the coat is quite funny, though is a cool one. It took me a couple days to have it done, patience and rocket science patterns-like to accomplish this creation.
Creating a coat like this takes around a week, at least of you work 2 hours a day on it. Once I created it I thought it would be perfect for Winter but to be honest with all of you, I don’t really think this is warm enough to keep myself alive and classy during the NOT SO LOVELY winter in Berlin.
I feel quite proud of myself for having accomplished the creation of this coat, not for the design itself but for the patterning...Read More
Too good for school?
LeFashionisto can tell you that going to a Catholic school was not the coolest thing on earth, the only thing I only liked was the fact we had to wear Uniforms, most of the people actually complained about it and said there was no freedom while wearing an Uniform. I’d definitely say that’s not the truth, some of my friends from school actually aimed for showing how they’d look like by wearing something different than an Uniform and that was certainly not the best Idea.
As far as the day we took the pictures, it was freezing outside. Although the outfit quite showed what I’d wear for school it did not protect me from the 12 degrees that we had on that day.
Anyways, we do whatever it takes to keep it stylish

Black and white/Paris/Photography. These are 3 words that might cause an artistic Orgasm to someone who enjoys talent from young photographers, I met this amazing photographer during the time I spent on Madrid, she is so talented that I actually regret the fact that I had to leave Madrid after a couple weeks without the chance of being photographed by her. I’m pretty sure one of the first things I’ll be doing once I go back there is asking her for a shooting, I didn’t have the chance to see her Folio until my last day in Madrid. I was so impressed that I though she was taking her pictures with an analog camera, she was NOT...Read More

Jasmin The Strange, the way we met each other was funny, as far as I remember it was on a Thursday night, I was wearing my indian pants and some cool yellow socks I found in Spain, I also remember we still had Summer and I had drunk a Cuba Libre to celebrate that I still had vacations. Suddenly a girl approached and she had something on her head, something that caught my attention, it was a headpiece, but not a headpiece that you can visually value on 10 Euros. NO, NO, NO it was something so special that you could see how much work and effort was put on it. It brought me back to those days where wearing a hat was a Symbol of respect and the bigger and beautiful the better.Read More
I have to say being single is amazing, not having to take care of a relationship is amazing! Having my time for myself and not having to explain where I’m going or who am I with is also a plus. I guess this is the perfect time to live single and enjoy life as much as you can, travel, get drunk. Whatever one can possibly imagine. Accomplishing this outfit was quite funny it came out of the idea of a type of guy who is THE GUY, not me of course but this idealistic trend much people have in mind. The only way I can describe that type of guy would be showing you how he looks like.
BOW TIE – BOW TIE is a perfect to look cute and still fashionable, if one is creative lots of things can be done just like my bow-tie. I made it myself and it took only 15 minutes to have it done...Read More
Fashion was something I though this night was going to be full of. My regular job consists on blogging and getting to know bloggers and contact them for making connections all around the world, by checking on their blogs I was basically surprised by the level of proffesionalism of Cities like Mexico City, Tokyo, etc … Berlin should have not been the exception, but it definitely was. What’s Fashion nowadays, WEARING A BRAND? and thinking having a Céline bag makes you fashionable and cool. People! They cannot go any wrong, it was one of those nights were you say, what’s wrong withl this industry. All I saw was a couple ‘real’ Fashionistos/as and the rest of the people were just Fashion Zombies, I like to call people that way, it’s not mean calling them like that...Read More
Being an Anti-Heroe was never within my plans, I always imagined myself as the guy who was saving everyone. Things have changed, I’ve got new perspectives in life and fighting AvantGarde heroes and artist is my new goal. My parents could have made a regular child out of me, instead a human being with a future vision for trends has been been created. I guess I’m just just having a Delirium kinda like moment. This outfit was just the perfect excuse to escape from a regular uptight day, see through trousers in Summer ( Hell yeah!) I have to thank Gregor Marvel for this trousers and the Jacket, well no words to say, wait!!!! There is one word – PERFECT – wearing eye-catcher clothing is turning into my thing, we’ll see.
Enjoy the pictures <3
LeFashionisto does not have any training as an Exorcist but I can certainly try to steal the colours out of this wonderful Designer, the very first time I had the change to see this colorful and mother nature loving creature was during the screening of SANTA SANGRE . Not drinking too much was my goal for that night, looks like it did worth it. Holding my CUBA LIBRE in the hand and expecting for some of friends who were just hanging around the place, I saw a colorful shadow ( Yes, they do exist!) and decided to confront who seemed to be the coolest and best person during the after party, not knowing what to expect from her was definitely the best part. After 5 minutes of talking to her I realised she’s a WONDERFUL creature who’s not afraid of showing her true colours.

I definitely have to say I love my new pants, they are just so cool. It’s was a total coincidence I got them because the Designer only made a couple samples of them <3 – I thought they might be too warm for the summer but decided to give them a try, lovely – lovely pants is all one can say about them, they keep you cool, classy and you’ll definitely be an eye-catcher for a while.
Have a lovely day <3
This is probably one of the first time Fashion Bloggers from Berlin and Paris join forces, for this ocassion I’d like to introduce you the very talented Florent Humbert.
Florent and I have created some sort of role play, he was supposed to recreate what Berlin means to him, the concept was free and the inspiration as well. The OUTFIT to create was the main task. As far as me. Well, I was supposed to play the Fashionisto from Paris and just like he did, I had to create an outfit inspired by the city of Lights.
Let the Catwalk begin!
Florent has composed this look inspired by the city of Berlin which represents to him a city forward-looking, modern, high-tech. He thinks about the contemporary architecture, the glass and metal buildings and their reflects...Read More
Photography doesn’t mean a hobby for this guy, it means EVERYTHING. Camilo Villabona is a young Colombian photographer who’s rocking the streets of Bogota and NY. His undoubtedly talent has taken him to a place where many would love to be, and yes I mean taking A – LISTERS pictures.
I’ll leave you here with the exclusive Editorial this young Photographer made in NY and shared to LeFashionistoRead More
I have to start this post saying that It’s been an honour having the chance to interview this guy. He’s more than just a simple Designer living in a hipster town, he’s not a fancy wannabe designer like the ones you use to find at social events, he’s a rebel, a free spirit who left Fashion School for not matching with him, someone who’s not scared of doing different. The Aubrey de Grey of Fashion, always searching how to make from his label a sign of inmortality.
I have to confess I met one of his creations at first, where? The Friendly Society . From the very first time I saw his art I felt in some kind of trance, it was just amazing, one cannot imagine how much work this man puts into everypiece he creates...Read More
Here’s another outfit that I’d recommend for summer, although the temperature was 28C this outfit turned out to be really comfortable and the jersey blazer is a must, not only for it’s lightness but for keeping things cool although the sun shines like hell!
Something I’ve go to mention is the lack of colours I’ve seen here in Berlin, sometimes is quite boring watching people wearing black durig the whole year, there are more colours! Go straight to your closet and get them out.

Gregor Marvel a free spirit and Designer, a man who doesn’t believe in mainstream fashion. We can call him a ‘ Fashion Punk’ if there was a way to categorize such a personality into a couple words. The word ‘ Fashion ‘ doesn’t really fit on his designs, I would categorize them as art, with a print of soul in every pattern and button.
Always thinking on how to WOW his customers and colleagues is part of his philosophy. Not expecting to fall in the regular fashion market is how this man’s idea made it to the bis leagues, and yes I’m talking about NY.
Let’s see what he has to confess to LeFashionisto

Hi Fashionistos and Fashionistas !
Last week I was invited to the ” Kultur- und Kreativpiloten mit dem Bundeswirtschaftsminister Preis Verleihung” -
Although the name is quite long it was actually a night where a couple companies whose ideas are creative and might definitely have a representative market within our not yet broken German Economy got an award because of their innovative ideas.
The location was definitely good and the service was professional, I’m still wondering why people was checking on my outfit, then I realized I was wearing my yellow socks and my inca-like printed pants ( I still think it was a great choice), the catering service was top class. The place was so crowded with people of all niches which actually added variety and made the night even more interesting.

I’ve had the pleasure to meet the super talented model and performer Eden a couple weeks ago during a Burlesque show here in Berlin. I have to say she’s one of a kind, as soon as one of my friends introduced me to her, the first thing that came to my mind was ” Damn, isn’t she elegant” then I talked to her for a couple minutes and realized she’s not only a Model, she’s a real person someone who does have something to tell and has a voice to do it. Let’s see what she’s got to say to Le Fashionisto …
What moves such a woman like you in life?
Well thats a big question. I guess some kind of urge to be creative and to express myself, discover myself, love and the search for happiness and fulfillment.

Hey everyone! It’s me again – Today I wanted to show you something that I wore yesterday, I liked to outfit somehow, the print on the pants brought me back to my indian roots in a way.
I was wearing this to go for dinner with friends and assist to a Film Screening .
I got the trousers on my trip to Spain, I dare to say it was a nice summer investment, besides the look that old ladies give you once they watch the trousers does worth it at all!
Hope you all love it <3

That was pretty much the last day of this amazing 2 weeks trip, ending up in the old city of Burgos with the feeling that you want to stay even longer. Spain you’ve got my heart and my money as well. I never though it would be such an amazing place, the people always smiling at you and ready to help and to be helped.
The lovely breakfasts, the beloved ” Churros con Chocolate” – the disccounted fashion articles all over the city – It’s just amazing how you realize there are so many places to visit that may offer you what you really want to have for a perfect trip.
Something I definitely loved and made my life way easier while visitig the city was the fact that they’ve got WI-FI all over the city and it’s free! ( Berlin you should that as well )

If you’re an actual fan of Fellini and Tarantino films you’ll definitely love ” SANTA SANGRE”. It’s something refreshing to see. I had the chance to see the film before but once they BERLIN FILM SOCIETY announced a screening mixed with performances I said ” I’m up for it”
I was quite impressed about the description that Jack from the Berlin Film society gave about Jodorowsky he just said ” A man who speaks 5 languages, all with an accent- A man who’s got no nationality but the world” – It makes you think it’s gonna be something quite impressing and it defininitely was.
Once you see that much blood in a single place it makes you disappear from your daily routine, having breakfast or waking up early are trivial compared to what this characters show you: double personalities, the effor...Read More
Here’s the second part of my trip, it was amazing. I did love Madrid. It’s such a wonderful city, got thousands of things to see. People were just amazing with me and always had a smile on their faces when it comes to help.
On this day I decided to move around the area of Chueca where I was staying, it’s a central area. You’ve got many atracctions just a couple minutes away from home.
Esta es la segunda parte de mi viaje, fué de lo mejor! Me encantó Madrid, es una ciudad muy bonita, tiene muchas cosas para observar y visitar. La gente siempre fué muy amable y la mayoría de las veces puedes contar con que tendrán una sonrisa en el rostro para ayudarte.
En esta segunda parte les mostraré el recorrido que tomé por el barrio Chueca ( donde me estaba hospedando)...Read More
Let me introduce you this talented girl! Her name is Yukiko Picapica she’s from Japan but has been living in Berlin for around a year.
Let’s see what she’s got to say to Le Fashionisto
What do you do here in Berlin?
I’m a fashion Designer and a Street style photographer for HAPICLO.
Why did you move to Berlin?
My favorite designer lives in Tokyo, his name is BANZAI. I met him there and he convinced me that Berlin was a good place to live and work as a creative. I think I made the right choice moving here, I love the city.
How would you describe Japanese Fashion?
Japanese love layers, we love wearing clothes in geometrical forms, we love matching things so that they look like a game,for most of us fashion is a game.
I went to Japan two months ago and I was amazed how people were actua...Read More
After spending a few months in Berlin, I’ve decided to go for a trip what will be my destination?- Spain.
I need to go back to my roots, practice my Spanish ( feels like ages since I haven’t spoken ), I’ve decided to make start in Madrid and then go to Burgos. Two cities one fashionisto and lots of pictures to share.
Después de haber pasado un par de meses en Berlin he decido ir de viaje. ¿ Cuál será mi destino? – España
Necesito volver a mis raices y practicar mi Español ( se siento cómo si no lo hubiera hablado en 100 años). He decidido empezar mi viaje en Madrid y luego ir a Burgos. 2 ciudades 1 Fashionisto y miles de fotos por compartir.
What a good way to begin this trip in Spain by eating in one of the most amazing restaurants in Madrid ” La Cocina de San Anton”

My trip to Madrid was not only for fun, I’ve met a really talented young French designer who’s creations are worn by toreros . Let’s see what he’s got to say.
Where did you study Fashion design?
I first studied Literature and Plastic Art, then Applied Art in the North-East of France, but I spent the three last years in the South of the country (in Nîmes) to study Fashion Design.
What inspires you to Design?
Well, everything is an inspiration to me : people I meet, trips, music, museums, …
A little thing or detail can move me, or inspire me. Ideas, concepts. Design is not just about design, it’s also about life.
Besides Design what else do you do?

It’s the first outfit I’ll be posting here. I’m excited to know what’s coming from now on. As far as the outfit it’s pretty much how I’d face the hell of a Summer temperatures we’ve got and still keeping it cool!
Es el primer atuendo que estoy posteando en mi blog, estoy un poco emocionado de lo que vendrá de ahora en adelante. En cuánto a lo que llevo puesto es cómo yo normalmente combato las temperaturas altas cuando estoy en Berlín y manteniendo las cosas con un poco de mi estilo personal.
