This is my first website ever! So forgive my mistakes! I will learn on the way.
AND I DO APOLOGIZE FOR THE ADVERTISMENTS ON THIS WEBSITE. NOT MY CHOICE. SO JUST IGNORE THEM, and sorry for them …
Nice to meet you all!
I’m Barbara Perucca from Florence, Italy. Author of 2 literary prizes winner novel:
Non voglio ammettere che ti amo – Edizioni Helicon
for now just published in Italy and in Italian (third edition) but I’m looking for an editor in UK/US to publish it also worldwide. I am bound to my Italian Publisher (Edizioni Helicon) just for the Italian market and the Italian version of my novel. I’ve translated it myself in English (I’ve lived in London for 4 years, also being Member of the Poetry Society) so I would need also a literary agency to help me promote it and find a Publisher outside Italy. The title translated is: “I don’t want to admit that I love you”. Looking forward to make a movie out of it too! And I encourage all bilingual or English mother tongue to give me advice regarding the translation: I need to correct and polish to make it sound more English.
So you are all welcome to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
My Facebook page for my novel is http://www.facebook.com/BarbaraPerucca
Here in this blog I will talk to you about different topics and what is FASHION for me and not only. We make our fashion ourselves. How you can make your own fashion, and what is the meaning of fashion in our lives, how we embrace it, how we live it. Because it doesn’t have to be perceived as something far from our reach, but it is within us. We are the creators of our own fashion as a way of living also, not just how we dress our body but our soul as well.
I got my model FAIFI official Diploma in 2002 also with a make-up session.
I have always being involved in the fashion environment also with my various jobs as main or side jobs, also writing articles for fashion magazines, selling clothes in retail shops, working for brands like Gucci or Boucheron …
But I am not mad about “famous” brands. I think is more what is suitable for us, what makes us look good, more than what brand we are showing.
Clothes should reflect our mood, suit the specific occasion we wear them for, and actually each day is a special occasion to stand up for ourselves no matter what. We are alive, we matter, we shine. A presence not hidden in the shadow but there, alive, in the middle of the crowd, we make the difference, each of us is unique, beautiful. Let’s be ourselves always.
So enjoy the readings in this website and feel free to contact me and keep in touch.
I am also writing about politics, and social issues, and other countries causes and problems … Because we cannot say that this does not concerns us too. The world is one and from environmental issues to patriarchy problems and human rights and the wars and worldwide conflicts … we are all part of this little planet and we cannot step away from other’s lives and problems because we are all one human race, all one unity of brotherhood. So yes, you will find articles of all kind. Please press the follow botton. I am not posting too much. And if you want to reply just add a comment. We all must get involved in this thing called life, and we are all part of humanity. And sharing and caring are the essence of being all together to support, to advise, to help to be and stay connected in this big family that is planet Earth.
Thanks! Life is too short not to live fashion and not only fashion, our way! We all must speak up for what is right. We are all Rosa Parks to stand against injustice. And as Ghandi said, we must be the change we would like to see in the planet.
Take care you all
And looking forward to hear from you!
