...Fashion makes what could be a mudane necessity of everyday life creative, exciting and interesting. Clothes are more to me than just clothes, they are a form of art. Our bodies are like canvas, and when we dress we make a picture in the world! Fashion and personal style for me are forms of self expression and escapism. How we dress is important whether we are choosing to dress to reveal or conceal parts of our personality. It is the way we wish the world to see us, so even if the intention is to dress for the latter it still give us hints to who people are. I love mixing high fashion with vintage. I don't just dress to look pretty and I'm quite experimental..I dress for myself and will wear anything as long as I like it even if others are not quite so sure. It's important that your happy!!

舞子 Maiko

Everyone who knows me is aware that one of my major fascinations is the differences in people and cultures. I love everything Asian and I'm mesmerised by how different Asia is from Europe. I love these red Topshop wedges, they look slightly funny but they make me think of a modern day Geisha.

Geisha means perfoming artist and the word consists of two kanji:

 (gei) meaning "art"
  (sha) meaning "person" or "doer".

Maiko 舞子 
'means dance child' and is the term for an apprentice Geisha

Chiffon tie&suede wedges: TOPSHOP
Cream Rose Dress: H&M Garden Collection
Kimono Tie Tassel Belt: Thrift Store
