baf week day 1



day 1






I love Buenos Aires fashion week, or BAF Week for short. I guess it's because it's right down the block (literally), and not half-way around the world like most fashion weeks are. But it's not just that, it's that I get to see that there is also an amazing fashion industry right here.

I get to read about New York FW, Paris, FW (Milan FW, and -currently- London FW) but Buenos Aires FW is somewhere I actually get to go.. I know, it might not be the city that never sleeps, or the city of lights, but it's my city.
On the other hand, I didn't really make a lot of friends today, all the stylish fashionistas were looking at me probably thinking I was an unrespectful human being (because, the truth is, I was walking around La Rural -the place were BAFW is held- in non other than my school uniform, yup you read that right).

Anyways, I adored the decoration and the place. It's a huge salon were there are stands of different (fashion related) things. Like for instance, Instituto Marangoni (an European fashion college), Paseo Alcorta (different fashion malls), some little cafe's-lounges were people can sit and relax (drink), shops that are sell unique designer articles, different mannequins with funny and creative outfits, etc. 
Conclusion: j'adore la semaine de la mode à buenos aires.


oh and to continue with my whole crazy alice in wonderland madness, at baf week there was a stand with fashion of the movie (an alice dress, a 'rabbit' dress, a white queen's, etc...). I like, I like (they're fun and creative -and sort of sexy, what do you think?) Do you?

A ver veamos, que nos puede llegar a gustar m'as que BAF WEEK? Leo sobre New York Fashion Week, sobre (actualmente) London Fashion Week. Pero Baf Week es otra cosa, es algo que nosostros podemos vivir acá, en Buenos Aires, algo que lo vivimos más personalmente.
Estando en BAF week, sin mucho que hacer aparte de dar vueltas por acá y por all;a (bancandome las miradas de todas las fashionistas que andaban por ahí debido a mi inoportuna vestimente es decir, en otras palabras, estaba lamentablemente en uniforme de colegio), me dirigí a uno de los stands del "Centro Metropolitano de Diseño" y créanlo o no, BS AS forma parte del programa "Red de Ciudades Creativas" (es más, fue una de las primeras seis ciudades a la que le otorgaron ese título –de acuerdo con el folleto), la chica que estaba en el stand nos conto (a mí y a mi mama) que un montón de diseñadores locales están exportando sus cosas a China (o Japón, no me acuerdo bien...) y que están teniendo un montón de éxito! eso me puso muy contenta, porque por fin reconocen el talento en donde lo hay.

Saludos!
