Interaction between music and fashion by Admin

People can hardly imagine their life without music as it accompanies almost every sphere of life.  Through the years, music has been the center of inspiration for various artists and its impact can be seen in pieces of art of different times. As well as sculptors, painters and writers, designers also often find their “muse” in musical compositions.

 Music creates idols people want to follow and look like. Each type of music also represents some ideology and values, so very often we can guess the type of music person likes according to ones` appearance.


In 1920, the popularity of jazz brought to fashion “bobbed” hairstyles, which were not only a mark of rebellion but also a practical style for the popular dance music. Dresses became shorter to reflect the ability to move freely while dancing. Jazz fashion reflected elegance, style and creativity.


Heavy metal

The biker, rocker and leather subcultures are associated with heavy metal. One of the main idols is considered to be Rob Halford, who wore a leather costume on stage in 1978 to coincide with the promotion for the Killing Machine. His look involved combat boots, studded belts and bracelets, bullet belts, spiked gauntlets etc.



Country music popularized the simplicity. Country talks about singer`s hometown and tracks, so country singers wear practical plaid shirts and cowboy boots, which are considered to be a must for a country singer.


Glam Rock

Glam Rock reached its peak in the mid of 1970s. The main drivers of this style were T.Rex, David Bowie, Sweet, Roxy Music and Gary Glitter. It influenced a lot on the formation of gothic rock which was informed by the bright make-up, clothes, theatricality and sound. Designers took an inspiration from the performances costumes. Glam rock combined various styles but its main distinguishing features are outrageous clothes, makeup, hairstyles and platform boots.


Even though it is in our nature to follow the common trend, modern people are being much less influenced by the music stars style as it used to be, however, music cultures still influence an individual`s fashion trends to a certain extend. Today a lot of people can disapprove the statement: “You are what you listen to”.

Expressionism in fashion by Admin

Expressionism was a modernist movement that was developed as an avant-garde style, originating in Germany in 1905-1925 years. It affected not only fine art but also architecture, literature, theatre, dance and music. Expressionism is focused on the artist’s sensibility and emotions to the world’s representation. It tends to be emotional, distorted, exaggerated and sometimes mystical. The colour is intense and not naturalistic, brushwork is usually free and agitating and paint is usually applied in big amount that makes the painting more textured.

The most well-known expressionists are Edvard Munch, Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Egon Schiele.

Time to be honest… by Admin

This post may or may not be inspirational and motivational for any of our readers. These are the facts that we sometimes forget about or even do not think about. However, they can be very useful for those who are lost, in the wrong place or have been down by someone or something.

Two things prevent us from happiness; living in the past and observing others

Time to be honest…

Happiness is about now. Thinking over and over about your past you will miss a great present. And speaking about observing others that is something what will make you upset, which doesn’t go with happiness at all. Observe yourself as you will be happy only when you will be happy with yourself.

You are always responsible for how you act, no matter how you feel. Remember that.

Time to be honest…

Sometimes we justify our actions, saying that ‘ I am having difficult days’, but your actions are still yours, no matter in what condition you were when you made it. You don’t want to do something what you will judge yourself for later.

Nothing is permanent

Time to be honest…

Time is priceless. What is happening to you now may not happen tomorrow. Do not forget to appreciate everything you have every day. One day you will miss it.

Someone is happy with less than you have

Time to be honest…

Don’t take anything for granted. Do not complain about having less things than your friend does. Happiness is when you feel rich with what you have, with people who surround you, with being who you are.

The past can not be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased. It can only be accepted.

Time to be honest…

Stop thinking over and over “what if ?.. ” The past is past, you can not change it. Most important, everything what is in the past is there for a reason, and everything happened in the best way for you.

Unexpressed emotions will never die. The are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.

Time to be honest…

This is for those who keep all the emotions to themselves. It can actually lead to emotional breakdown. Sometimes it is difficult to open up to someone, which is ok as we all are afraid to be judged or look pathetic. Do not worry, there is always someone who will share your emotions, and it will help you both.

Every next level of your life will demand a different you.

Time to be honest…

Don’t be afraid of trying new things. It does open a new side of you. The more you try, the wiser you become.

Nobody is too busy, it’s just a matter of priorities.

Time to be honest…

Don’t fool yourself thinking/ believing that THE PERSON is too busy. If the person really cares about you, he will find time. You know, 5 minutes is so much better than nothing, and everyone can find these minutes if it’s important for them.

People inspire you or they drain you. Pick them wisely.

Time to be honest…

It doesn’t make you a bad person if you surround yourself with people who make you happy. You have one chance to live your life. Don’t waste it on something or someone who doesn’t make you happy.
