Featured Fashionista: Aphrodite Barrientos

1. What does Fashion mean to you?
Along with music, art and writing, fashion is such an important outlet for my emotions and creativity and is the main mechanism i use to demonstrate to the outside world who i am and how i feel and who i want to be on any particular day.

2. What style of dress would be good to wear?
Good question but it's rather like asking an artist what is his favourite color. However, if you were to press me to choose one style of dress above the expectrum of choices, i would choose something that's floral, flowing and long.

3. What brand of shoes do you buy?
I dont actually buy brands, i buy style. But if you were to look at my humble shoes collection, i guess you would notice that i tend to favour Christian Louboutin and Alexander Wang. But my favourite right now are my Doc Martens!!=)

4. Who are some of your favorite designers?
I am the biggest fan of Stella McCartney. I also think that Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld and Stefano Pilati are geniuses. I love the imaginative creativity of Victor & Rolf, Haider Ackermann and Maison Martin Margiela. And i also really love the works of Consuelo Castiglioni (Marni), Miuccia Prada (Prada & Miu Miu), Hannah MacGibbon (Chloe), Phoebe Philo (Celine), Sonia Rykiel, Michael Kors, Paul Smith, Oscar dela Renta, and my current favourite Antonio Marras (Kenzo), his AW 10-11 is my favourite this season.=)
