Coming from a country where going to the beach is a part of our everyday life, swimwear takes a lot of space in my wardrobe, so I decided to create a list of my … Continue reading Beachwear must haves 2018.
Oscar season might simply be my favourite time of the year. Yes, maybe even more than Christmas and summer.

Have you ever wondered where your clothes come from? Open your closet and look at the label of each piece of clothing. Impressive how the whole world can fit inside your wardrobe. Clothes are like people, they have a story behind them and very often this story is brutal. It is a truth we would all rather ignore than face, but most of today’s clothing … Continue reading Ethics in the fashion industry- Zazi Vintage.
