David Salomón.

Once again I had the pleasure to attend Mexico’s Fashion Week. The week when we can finally forget our problems and enjoy the magic of some amazing designs, as if we were in a fairy tale.

In this story David Salomón would be anyones favorite Godmother, or Godfather…

You have probably heard his name, as I´ve written about him before (if not, what are you waiting? Check it!… there´s even a video 😉 )

His designs are both fresh and elegant with a glimpse of sexiness; but just the right amount.

No surprise he has dressed a few celebrities…

Here some photos!

This collection was inspired in the designers hometown, Cancun, the strand and the movement of the ocean. Quite a master piece I´d say.

I want to thanks his PR people for the invite, it was truly an amazing night…

P.S: I want to thank them even more for putting me upstairs in the VIP area 😉

Love,

#BringBackOurGirls

Captura de pantalla 2014-05-15 a la(s) 21.28.10

 

Life as we know it can change in a second….

Near 200 girls were kidnapped last month, a real coverage was not made. However #BringBackOurGirls has gone viral and now celebrities, politicians, and real people are posting about this.

These girls are from Nigeria and a lot has been said about the fact, that if they were from Europe, from example, the news´d have coverage this instantly.

I think that despite our physical differences we are all human and we all have the right to be free and respected. The though of girls being kidnapped and probably being sold right now is unbearable…something must be done.

Many people say, that a simple photo posted by Michelle Obama or David Cameron is useless if action is not taken. Is an updated status worthy?

I think so…the influence of this personalities is HUGE! Information about them is spread worldwide, it makes people more conscious. This is mayor, because we all can do something to support the cause.

Of course I think that action must be taken by powerful countries…but these decisions are slow…uploading a picture that will create consciousness around the world takes less than a minute.

So please take a minute as well to appreciate your life and support any cause in order to make this a better world.

Love,

Liebster Award en español

Liebster Award!

Liebster Award!

“Liebster Award” es un premio para bloggers dado POR bloggers, es una forma de que sepan que tan apreciados son y que realmente hay gente allá afuera que los lee. Creo que es una idea fabulosa que motiva a los bloggers, que como yo, están empezando en este negocio. 🙂

Estudio alemán y por eso supuse que el premia tenía algo que ver con Alemania, pues “Liebster” significa querido/a. Investigué un poco y descubrí que en efecto, este premio surgió en Alemania hace 3 años con el fin de dar a conocer blogs y darles un empujón. Es por esto que su eslogan es “Descubre más blogs”.

Un día como cualquier otro, estaba actualizando mi estatus en Twitter y vi que tenía un mensaje directo, creí que era publicidad, pero descubrí que era n mensaje de “Guapuuras Blog” diciéndome que había sido nominada al ya mencionado premio…al principio creí que era puro cuento…¡pero descubrí que no! Quisiera agradecerles infinitamente por este premio, ¡me hizo el día! Es increíble saber que hay gente que no condes que lee tu blog y que además les gusta.

Así funciona:

  1. Agradeces al Blog que te nominó
  2. Respondes las preguntas que te hizo el Blog que te nominó
  3. Nominas a otros Blogs
  4. Escribes 10 preguntas para tus nominados

¡Muchísimas Gracias Guapuuras Blog! Ahora responderé a sus preguntas:

1. ¿Cómo y por qué empezaste tu blog?                                                                              Inicio una tarde de verano para distraerme un poco, me inspire en una amiga y sólo escribí sobre una persona cuyo estilo admiro Kate Middleton.

2. ¿Cuál es tu estilo?                                                                                                                 Es en general casual para la escuela. Me gusta el estilo “preppy” y amo los jeans.

3. ¿A quién admiras en la industria de la moda?                                                                     Va a sonar como un cliché pero 100% verdad. Admiro a COCO CHANEL, la forma en la que prácticamente reintentó la moda femenina y nuca dejó de luchar por sus sueños es una inspiración para mi día a día. Desde chica admiraba su trabajo en los libros de mi mamá.

4. ¿Qué usas siempre?                                                                                                         Una pulsera que me dio una de mis mejores amigas. La compró en Tailandia…un lugar al que siempre he querido visitar…además trae hermosos recuerdos.

5. Si fueras una ciudad, ¿Qué ciudad serías?                                                                     Roma, muchos secretos se guardan ahí.

6. ¿Qué artículo de moda serías?                                                                                            Un collar…¡los amo!

7. ¿Cuál es tu tienda favorita y por qué?                                                                                  No tengo una favorita, pero pienso que las tiendas vintage son muy interesantes.

8.  Jeans favoritos                                                                                                                Skinny jeans

9. Modelo Favorita                                                                                                             Carmen Dell’Orefice.

10. Frase predilecta                                                                                                               “Nada es imposible, la palabra misma lo dice ‘I´m possible’!” (soy posible) – Audrey Hepburn.                                                                                                                                    En inglés se entiende mejor:  “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I´m possible’!” – Audrey Hepburn.

Mis nominados está en mi artículo anterior junto con las 10 preguntas.

Liebster Award

Liebster Award!

Liebster Award!

“Liebster Award”  is an award given to bloggers BY bloggers. It is a way to let them know how appreciated they are and how people actually takes time to read what they write. I think it is a fabulous idea and also motivates bloggers, who like me, are just starting in the business 🙂

I study at the German School and therefore I knew that the award had something to do with Germany, because “Liebster” is a German word  which means dearest or sweetheart ❤ I searched a little and it seems that this award was born 3 years ago in Germany in order to get to know more blogs and give them a little push. This is why their slogan is “discover more blogs”.

A day like any other I was updating my twitter status (@fashionberblick) and saw a  new direct message I thought it was spam…but when I opened it was a message from Guapuuras Blog where they were telling me that I was nominated to this award. I thought it was a joke at first but it turns out it wasn´t! I would like to thank them so much for this!… It really made my day. It is amazing to know that people who you actually don´t know read your posts and like them!!

So this is how it works:

  1. Thank the Blog that nominated you
  2. Answer the 10 questions that were asked by the Blog who nominated you
  3. Nominate other blogs and let them know
  4. Write 10 questions to your nominees

So thanks Guapuuras Blog soo much!!! I´ll answer your questions now:

1.How and why did you started your blog?                                                                                I started the Blog on a summer afternoon in order to distract myself. I got inspired by a really good friend and just wrote about a person whose style I admire Kate Middleton 

2. What is your style?                                                                                                                I keep it casual for school but like to go preppy every now and then. It is the style that best suits me. In any case I think that jeans are nothing but the best.

3. In the Fashion Industry: Who do you admire and why?                                                       It may sound like a cliche but it is 100% true, I really admire COCO CHANEL. The way she practically reinvented fashion for women and never stopped fighting in order to make her dreams come true is an inspiration for my every day life. I used to stare at her pictures and master pieces in some of my mom´s books since I was a little girl.

4. What do you always wear?                                                                                                      A bracelet given to me by one of my best friends. She bought it in Thailand, a place I´ve always wanted to visit… and it also brings back some beautiful memories.

5. If you were a city…which city would you be?                                                                         I would say Rome…lots of secrets are kept there.

6. Which fashion item would you be?                                                                                          A necklace…I love them.

7.Favorite store and why                                                                                                              I don´t have one but I always find little vintage stores interesting.

8. Favorite Jeans                                                                                                               Skinny Jeans.

Inside Tommy Hilfiger!

A couple of days ago I had the honor of interviewing Lorenzo Ruiz Martínez , General Manager of Tommy Hilfiger Mexico. Besides having this amazing job Lorenzo is the founder of “Fututors” an organization which goal is to motivate the action and to promote the transformation of the future of children and young  mexican people. As if this wasn´t enough Lorenzo is also a high-altitude mountaineer and he climbed the Everest!          Martha Debayle who has a  famous radio program had the pleasure to interview him about this wonderful experience! Here the link (at the bottom of the page).

My interview  focused on fashion and I discovered that Lorenzo has some really interesting points of view about Tommy Hilfiger but also about life. This brand has a great positioning in Mexico and Lorenzo had definitely an influence…Congratulations!

The interview in spanish is here and the highlights in english below.

With/Con Lorenzo Ruiz Martínez

Everest!

Everest!

Hace unos días tuve el honor de entrevistar a Lorenzo Ruiz Martínez, Director General de Tommy Hilfiger México. Además de este fantástico trabajo Lorenzo es el fundador de “Fututors” una organización cuyo fin es motivar a la acción y promover la transformación del futuro de los jóvenes y niños mexicanos. Como si esto no fuera suficiente, Lorenzo es también alpinista y dentro de sus mayores logros se encuentra haber escalado…¡El Everest!                                                                                                                              Martha Debayle, la famosa locutora, tuvo el placer de entrevistarlo sobre esta maravillosa experiencia ¡Aquí el link! (al final de la página)

Mi entrevista se enfocó en moda y descubrí que Lorenzo tiene un punto de vista muy interesante en cuanto a la marca y respecto a la vida. Tommy Hilfiger tiene un excelente posicionamiento en México y Lorenzo definitivamente influyó en este logro…¡Felicidades!

AQUI EL LINK DE MI ENTREVISTA

The interview is in spanish, but here are some highlights:

– “Tommy Hilfiger is for a person who is young in spirit, age does not matter.”

– “Hifiger Denim is for young people who are between 15 and 24 years old. It is really preppy but has a strong denim essence. ”

-“We [Tommy Hilfiger] are for young people who are looking a preppy and relaxed style.”

-“It [Tommy Hilfiger] is a classic american brand with a fashion twist.”

-“We celebrate difference and like diversity; we are, I think, a well thought brand for Mexico because Mexico is a diverse country.”

-“We have the best Brand Equity in America and the best Brand Exposure we are above the United States, Canada, Brazil… We are really proud because some recent studies have considered us the best brand in “Top of Mind”.

When asked what was their key of success he said that what matters the most is the product, but that campaigns, boutiques and the experience of shopping their products  had also an influence.

I sincerely told him that he was an inspiration to many of us, and asked him for some tips. He said that in order to make things happen passion and willpower are needed. If we want our dreams to come true we need to pay a price and that price is called effort. It does not matter where you come from, what you studied, if have money or not you can achieve your dreams. Experience is not needed, but passion matters.

Many of you may for sure have heard the rumor where Tommy Hilfiger said “If I had known that African-Americans, Hispanics and Asians would buy my clothes, I would not have made them so nice.” This is a BIG FAT LIE.

Muchos de ustedes seguro escucharon un rumor en el que Tommy Hilfiger decía: “Si hubiera sabido que Afroamericanos, Hispanos y asiáticos iban a a comprar mi ropa, no la hubiera hecho tan bonita” Esto es UNA GRAN MENTIRA.

Thanks for reading! Hope you liked it!

Gracias por leer, ¡Espero que les haya gustado!

Audrey Hepburn

As you may have seen in my Instagram account these post is going to be about Audrey Hepburn with an emphasis on the movie that makes me forget all my problems…Breakfast at Tiffany´s which is by the way based on the novel by Truman Capote 🙂

Gotta read it!

Audrey´s fans may know her history, but for all of you who don’t, here is  it. (Quite short).

  • Born on May 4,1929, in Brussels, Belgium, Audrey was a talented performer known for her beauty, elegance and grace.
  • While  she was living in the Netherlands the Nazis occupied this country and let people starve. Audrey  used to practice ballet so she danced secretly to a group of people in order to collect money to the Dutch resistance. She also delivered messages which she hid in her ballet shoes.
  • During her wartime struggles she suffered from malnutrition and developed respiratory problems and  anemia. Her uncle was executed and her brother sent to a German labour camp.
  • After the war she went to London to keep studying ballet, she participated in some musicals and one uncredited film.
  • At the age of 22 she moved to NYC to star in the Broadway production of GIGI. Only a few weeks later after the premier Hollywood called her and two years later she was filming Roman Holiday which gave her an Oscar….The rest is history.
  • But you have to know that because of her past she became an UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Audrey Hepburn also remains one of the few persons who have won an Academy, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Awards.

So returning to Fashion…Hepburn set new high fashion standards in Breakfast at Tiffany´s  where she played a seemingly lighthearted, but ultimately troubled  New York City part girl who gets involved with a struggling writer played by George Peppard. Hepburn received her fourth Academy Award nomination for this film.  

Holly Golightly is a timeless character who shows us that even with a very small wardrobe women can look chic and stylish…ALWAYS!  even with a towel!

No more of the “I don´t have anything to wear” phrase.

With a “little black dress”, a Trench Coat, pearls, earrings, heels , scarves and hats, Holly proves that the magic of any outfit relays on its accessories. 

This dress designed by none other than Hubert de Givenchy is still inspiration for millions of fashionistas all around the world.Simple and chic the dress was accessorized by stunning pearls in the memorable beginning of Breakfast at Tiffany´s!

Here are some Holly Golightly outfits:

 Audrey Hepburn´s beautiful simplicity still lives on as a timeless example of a fashion icon. And why?

Because she understood her body and used clothes that accentuated it; mens shirt and little black dresses did her a favour.

So there is the trick! Know your body, LOVE your body and use what suits it best!

Stay true to your style, love yourself and you should be fine 🙂

 

This is it my beloved readers!

Hope you liked it and learned something new…

Comment on Audrey Hepburn´s style or whatever you like, remember that you have a voice..use it(:

You can follow me on Instagram to get some sneak peaks about new posts and also some extra fashion tips, I may follow you back!!! @fashion_uberblick

I´ll leave you with a song I love, sang by Audrey!
