One of my personal Instagram favourites, 25 year old, Milan based, fashion and shoe designer, @valerievi talks future fashion theories and how sex and history inspire her distinct glam aesthetic.
My name is Valerie. I'm into fashion and music. I get inspiration from sex. and the 2000's. I never go to bed if I haven't seen a beautiful picture. It's stimulating for my dreams. I just feel BEYOND.
HEART AND HATE
Heart: my boyfriend, my imagination skills and my bed. Hate: urban pollution.
It's a way to have fun and play with fashion and work at the same time. I began doing the pole dancer at club Plastic in Milan. Now I am at Hilton Club.
"Down On Me" by Jeremih feat. 50 Cent! That's so me!!
It means playing and feeling free.
Me, when I'll have my own brand. But in the meantime I can say DOLCE & GABBANA, DIOR BY JOHN GALLIANO, JEAN PAUL GAULTIER AND GUCCI BY TOM FORD. Of course I'm not talking about the latest fashion, I am talking about fashion from the latest 90's to the beginning of 2000.
Actually there isn't any specific thing. I just follow my taste trying to be different from the others. Inspiration comes from my imagination and from the things I used to like when I was a kid. I used to buy monthly issues of fashion magazines and to spend my time watching fashion shows. I was a kid, so I kept all this information in my mind an now that I am an adult I can take advantage of it.
I hope I'll be living with my boyfriend in our own house with our cat with the chance to travel and have friends all over the world.
THE FUTURE OF FASHION
I have my own theory. Fashion has a predestined future, cause trends change every 10 years. We had the 20's the 30's the 40's the 50's 60's the 70's the 80's the 90's and 2000. The future of fashion is to mix all these years together in a new way.
SOCIAL MEDIA OF CHOICE
Tumblr and Instagram.
WHAT GOT YOU NOTICED
When I created the first digital illustration for Broke Candy and I put it on my tumblr page #31ThegoldenLap. That picture was re-blogged so many times and I had so many requests I never replied to.
