Hope for Emilia: Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope

Hello, everyone, i hope you’re all doing good.

I’m super stressed ’cause of the mega heat Summer has brought especially in Southern Italy, plus i’m more busy than ever at work: fun, isn’t it?? ūüėõ

Anyway, i absolutely can’t complain first of all because i’m alive, then because i have a house, because i did not lose family or friends in the terrible earthquake that last May (the 20th ) hit the Emilia Romagna region, in Northern Italy,¬†registering a magnitude of 6.1. In the following days many aftershocks and additional earthquakes struck the same area with terrible damages:¬†26 people died and thousands are now homeless, living in tents.

So, no, i can’t complain at all.

HOPE FOR EMILIA is an important event which started on the 22nd of July and will run  through to the 9th of August:  it includes a Summer Fashion Fair, fashion shows, an art expo and entertainment events to fundraise for the victims of earthquake in Emilia, Italy.

The talented and generous designers participating in the fair  offer exclusive items with 100% of the proceeds being donated to assist the citizens affected by the earthquakes.

Please watch this video, created by the Pyramid Café Group, a video which explains well what happened in Emilia and the Hope for Emilia event:



In the following picture i’m showing the AD Creations exclusive item for the event:


It’s a lovely 50’s goth mesh swimsuit which you can’t help but admire: Aliza Karu did it again, everything she creates is a lil piece of art and this time she did it for an important cause. ¬† ¬† ¬†*Bows to Aliza*

Please, guys, come to the event and donate. Thank you.

Thanks Aliza, thanks organizers and designers, thanks Pyramid Cafè.

Bandana Day


Today is Bandana Day, the culmination of Hair Fair, the last hurrah of the most widely and avidly anticipated fashion event of the year. We have drooled, fawned and mulled over the offerings of the many hair stylists. We have spent the last two weeks discovering new ones that excite our interest and rediscovering old stylists we have neglected. Perennial favorites have proven their worth again and brand new brands have shown that age isn’t everything. And here we are, on the final day taking a moment to be a little more serious and reflect on the ultimate and abiding purpose of Hair Fair, providing hair to children who have lost their own due to medical reasons.
