Featured Fashionista: Francesco aka YOUTHAGAINSTFASHION

1. What does fashion mean to you?
For me it's just a very funny way to express myself. I think I personally live fashion in a very simple, maybe a bit superficial, way. It's the way I appear, but not necessary what I am. Just today a co-worker said that judging by my looks, (dark colors and shades and so on lol) she would never thought I could paint such bright paintings (because yes, I do paint too lol). Painting is something very deep for me...that's why I think that fashion cannot represent me entirely.... But I think fashion can be something more, like an unknown,desired, scary world.

2. What style dress would be good to wear?
Well for me it's maybe the preppy style: give me a shirt, one of my beloved ties or bow-ties and a vest and pretty much you could have the style that maybe represents me at its best! It's the style I feel most comfortable with. Black and grey are surely a comfort zone for me too.

3. What brand of shoes you buy?
Honestly...I'm not so into shoes, that's a pity I know. I've spent many years understimating shoes value lol I may starting now to love them more, but that's also that I'm very picky so I end up choosing the very same model all the time or boots. I usually buy most of my shoes at Zara or H&M, nothing special lol.

4. Who are some of your favorite designers?
My fave designer is Vivienne Westwood without any doubt. Each time she literally amazes me and I'd love to have more and more of her pieces!
