Style has always been a form of self expression for me. Far beyond the consumerism of the clothes horses, “basic” girls, and various fashion mafias…I don’t do it to convey my social ranking. Clothing is my paintbrush. Each outfit is a depiction of my mood, what I’m currently obsessing over, the music that inspires me, and what I’m reading.
Of course I follow trends, and I always have my finger on the pulse of fashion, but that’s not my ultimate deciding factor. Two of my all-time favourite fashion icons are Daphne Guinness and David Bowie. To me they are in the upper echelons of true style. They broke barriers and smashed gender norms (one more than the other obviously). Admiring someone’s style is not about imitation; it’s about how you interpret it. It’s like I bought a Keith Richards colouring book and decided to rework it from the point of view of Picasso. I take suggestions, I appreciate, but I always make it my own.
So now we come to the newest adventure of Mollociraptor. A blog. It will be so much more than a superficial, egotistical diary of what I wear, where I travel, and how I eat. I meet so many people that want to wear what I wear or act how I act, but they say they “could never pull it off”. Bull. Fashion isn’t about a size, stereotype, or rare bravery. It’s a mood that anyone can feel as long as they just embrace it. So let’s rock this silly thing.
Welcome to Mollociraptor.
