DW__What's your name ? How old are you and where do you live ?
My name is Leszek, though I've shortened it to Le, to make it simplier and more linguistically friendly. I'm a 24-year-old guy from Poland.
I launched my own visual diary blog in October 2011. However, I've been tumbling since April 2009.
Everything started with passion for photography. Flicking through portraiture and editorial photography had led me towards fashion culture. At some point I decided to combine the areas of photography and fashion in a blogging space. Working on photographic skills and personal style (which is an excellent subject to photograph) can be very rewarding.
It's a medium of expression, a sort of art for sure. A reflection of your persona, the way you live and the things that inspire you.
The 50's and 60's. Classic style is quite resistant to changes and you may refer to it in your attire whatever the fashion trends are. I draw a great inspiration from that period and often find it really refreshing.
I think they make the distance between haute couture and style enthusiasts shorter. Bloggers can bring fashion culture closer to their readers and create a brilliant network of fashion consciousness. Therefore, fashion world expands, becomes more available.
I really can't predict, although I hope they will neither replace magazines nor be ephemeral. Many fashion bloggers already do a good editorial work, magazines absorb more and more digital space. I think these two platforms work great along with each other.
The art of creating beauty.
I try to make it as personal as possible. It should embrace well-matched attire, body- and mind-wise. Therefore it must be personal.
However, every day the way I visualize my style is influenced by whatever catches my perceptive attention. But isn't it what makes being inspired wonderful?
I think most of them come from the classics or fashion culture. By classics, I mean films, books, editorial photography icons. As for fashion culture, I find catwalks, magazines, street style blogs truly inspiring.
I draw the biggest inspiration from photography. It has led me to fashion culture and art admiration. I love exploring aesthetics and all the beauty of portraiture that photography brings along as a visual art.
To me, it's all about feeling well with myself. I feel well when I'm inspired (by photography, books, films, artists) and can saturate my look with that state. I choose an outfit that keeps me awake to everything that puts my thoughts on a right track. So it's pretty important.
Someone who is talented, smart, art-sensitive and can formulate all of these values in his/her style.
In case of both male and female, classic, preppy, buttoned-up and vintage accents work excellent.
Stay unique, even when inspired by pop fashion trends.
You mean, mine?
Dare to be rare
