Here I go with some other photos from the shooting for EY Magateen! Then I was still a 19 yo!
Now that I turned 20 I can't say I'm a teenager anymore, so basically this is the last "teenage photoshoot" of mine lol
I had so much fun posing for Carlotta Manaigo, the amazingly talented photographer sent by Luis Venegas!

I've always enjoyed Achraf's illustrations and I was quite surprised when I got into facebook and found out he had made one about me!
I totally love it and I'm so "proud" to be among all the "fashion faces and stuff" he's been illustrating so far!!!
So I got the chance to have a talk with this amazing talent and here I go with Achraf's interview and best pieces (in my personal opinion)

- What do/did you study?
During my high school period, I studied art in general, where I learned to be openminded and to become as a sponge in our actuality society . After that, as a logic evolution I study the Graphic Design at Sint-Lukas University Brussels, but didn't finished all my years. Actually I try to explore my passion by my own experiences in life. For this reason I started to work as Freelancer all over the world.
- When did your passion for illustration started? did you always wanted to be an illustrator?
Since I was a child I was passionated by the technic of drawing. But concretely I started to believe more in this profession when I discovered Art-schools, (after a hard and boring college period...)
- What do you expect from your carreer?
Express myself and communicate via my visions and do something I like during my life.
- What inspires you most?
The "Superficial World" as I call it and all kind of emotions a person can have in a absolute level... viva DRAMA !
- What's beauty to you?
The 'nature' and the 'naturally'.
- Is there a particular message you want to transmit through your art?
All is about communication in my illustrations .
- What's your attitude to fashion?
Critique and imaginative with a touch of perplexity.
- Did your parents and friends support your passion?
I'm very glad and thankful to them. I have the chance to have parent that never stopped me in my passion but learned me to be educated with it. All is about good education for me. I have also 2 muses (Lily la Tigresse & Diva) that are for me real friends and follow me in my various 'trips'.
- Tell us a secret about your talent!
These are just a few of all Achraf's illustrations!

I'm having such a good time since uni started! I also discovered the fun of using my camera while working, so I'm showing you some interesting details of my (new) everyday life!
You know, at times (fortunately) life seems to finally give you what you needed to move on... I wasn't actually having a nice time before it all started to work right, but now things seem to go much better, and among ups and downs, I'm starting a new chapter of my life...
How amazing would it be to have all I had before plus this, but nothing ever seems to be priceless in this life!
So little A is just playing the game... picking up the pieces of his broken heart and put em all together again, little by little ...
I'm now 20 yo, big boys don't cry lol
By the way, thank you E for your amazing present...

It seems like everyone is going crazy for the H&M by Lanvin collection. Well I actually, definitely, expected something more from Alber! When he said he was intrigued by "the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public" I thought he would have done a bette job!
And it's not that I don't like any of these dresses but it's been kind of disappointing from a certain point of view. Now that I think about it, I've never really been amazed by any ot these H&M collaborations with luxury fashion houses... It's like every single piece looks quite clichéd in my opinion... and that's what makes it more public than luxury, if you get what I mean!
These are just a few examples... I mean, who hasn't seen Anna with that dress?
Isn't it just a cheap copy in the end?
I'd rather spend 200 euros (which is probably more or less the price of these dresses) for something more particular or maybe save some more money and buy something definitely less H&M!
I'm not saying you don't have to buy any of these dresses, just be aware that, in my opinion, there's nothing luxury about it!
I heard of people going camping out the mall just to buy these stuff! I think it's crazy, but if you're going to do that let me suggest you my favourite one... =P
(By the way,I think these outfit photos don't do justice to the collection tho)
You probably have already seen this, but if you haven't you should! I think the video presentation is really nice!
Now, to end this post, I'm showing you the best thing of it all... omg don't I love Anna!
THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING PEOPLE.
