Natasha from The Fashion Pixels, also I have a little Skype interview with her to dig a little bit more about her: “I’m Natasha, a three-quarters Greek and one-quarter Russian student living in Belgium from the age of 5.
I’ve been in love with fashion for years now, following trends, watching shows, drawing designs, so this year I decided to take this ‘love’ to the next level by actively looking booking since late September and blogging for a month now.”
So, you are a three-quarters Greek and one-quarter Russian, tell me about it!
Well, my grandfather is from Russia; his parents left the URSS and lived in Greece, that’s where I got my colors from. You won’t find that many “pale” people in Greece
It is such a really interesting story. Now, why are you live in Belgium?
I moved here when I was 5 because my mother got a job here and then my father came over, and we just liked the place so much we all decided to stay here! Greece is now only a summer holidays place
At what age do you fall in love with fashion?
Do the people in Belgium inspire you?
At around 8, I started dressing on my own. ‘I wouldn’t let my mother dress me up and I had created my own style. And not really because the people here are a bit “gray” also Brussels is not known for its fashion, Antwerp is.
What is the meaning behind your blog’s name “The Fashion Pixels “?
Well fashion bloggers and fashion mainly, you nearly never get to actually see it, you are only seeing it through pixels, so there you go!
Do you know what are you going to study for university?
Probably law and economics, it’s got nothing to do with fashion I know, but I like both subjects very much! I have Eco courses at school and it’s like I’m charismatic at it, I get it at once! And the law, I guess I’ve always wanted to defend the right and prove it
How do you see the future of fashion?
Is it just a passing fad or is it a lasting medium?
Well many people have started blogging lately, and I’m one of them, I believe it’s growing bigger and bigger, and it’s a great thing the more the resources the more the inspiration!
Have you got any beauty, makeup and hair tips, and stylish secrets?
I love cheekbones, so in order to emphasize mines I apply blush on them. Now hair, I’ve very long hair so I can do nearly any
The hairstyle I want, I love giving my hair extra volume with waves. And I no matter what apply mascara.
