At last another issue of Girls with Allure is out. I am going to maintain, more or less, the questionnaire in all the interviews.
This time I had the pleasure to interview Trini. In her early twenties, she's already a fashion designer and has recently moved from her home country, Chile to Madrid.
Style. "My style is just plain me. An extension of who i am. I don't think it can be defined.I'm influenced on certain decades in fashion, 60s and 70s but really I don't think in anything else. I dress according to my mood and definitely in what i have to do in my day. "
Who are your favourite designers?
"Luella Bartley, Phillip Lim and Yvan Mispelaere."
Predict a trend for next season. What will be wearing in four months?
"For spring i think we will be full of little flowery print dresses,which i personally adore. "
"Chanel: Her style and her life by Janet Wallach.
La finestra di fronte .
After hours - The Velvet Underground."
Fetish: "Hats and shoes. I collect them."
As a designer, what is your reaction at the raise of celebrities turned into "designers"?
"Well it just lets you know anyone can "design" know a days. Anyone who is in the media at least.Some do it good but mostly don't. Perfect example of who don't J-LO,Gwen Stefani, or Beyonce. They design trashy clothes and are not by any chance at the level of designers who did study the matter at college. It just shows."
What is, in your opinion, the best garment ever designed? "Pants/shorts for women!"
Which beauty product you can't live without? "Red nail polish."
Do you see a big difference between the way people dress in Spain, and your home country?
"Yes, here people are more into fashion. They are more concerned of details and accessories. Men specially. "
What does elegance mean? "Refined. Audrey Hepburn."Song: After hours - The Velvet Underground.
