There’s no better time to try shooting street style than September, right? I think so too. This time during fashion week in Milan, I’ve decided to take my camera and, with hundreds of other photographers (no exaggeration), explore the streets outside the shows. I’ve been aiming to do that for a while now – finally I did. And boy, what a parade! From casual and classy looks to wigs, neon and glitter – you could find it all.
Since this was the first time properly shooting street style, I didn’t have any expectations of how the pictures will turn out. However, I’m quite happy with the result, so here’s a massive gallery of MFW SS19 street fashion – sit back, relax and I hope you’ll enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed taking these pictures.
If you are following my instagram account , you definitely know all about my trip to Stockholm during fashion week a couple of weeks ago. It was the first time in the city for both me and @neretos, so we made sure we find the time to explore the beautiful Stockholm between all the fashion week events. In short, we loved it and we’re coming back 100%! Scroll down for a bunch of snapshots to see how great it all was:
1/2/ The beautiful Stockholm // 3/ My travel outfit. Wearing H&M boots, Lindex denim jeans, vintage jacket, Levi’s turtleneck and a vintage bag. Bottle of water is in my hand, of course. Hydration!
4/ Nereta exploring the city / 5/6/ More of the beautiful Stockholm. The first day we arrived there were no shows, so we were proper tourists
7/ My beloved vintage Whiting and Davis bag in a fake french setting // 8/ My look for the first day of the fashion week // 9/ Metro life

Last weekend was quite intense! Since I’m back in Lithuania for the moment, it’s a pleasure to participate in all kind of fashion events here. Mados Infekcija is definitely the biggest and most important of them all. The primary plan was to prepare an article ranking my favorite collections and outfits from MI. However, the organization of the event is probably the weakest element of all. I sent an email request for the press package with photos yesterday and got an instant reply that the photos are not ready yet. Oh well. Let’s hope they will be ready before the next event. I’m not even talking about the fact that I had to ask for the pictures. Or about seating problems or massive delays. As sad as it would be, it was like that as far as I remember, chances are, it was like that for the whole period of twenty years. So is it even logical to expect some improvements in the future? I strongly doubt it.
On the other hand, maybe it’s for the best. I am no expert after all. So, instead of pile of rambling thoughts and another attempt to position myself as a very well informed fashionista, enjoy this laconic collection of snaps I made during the weekend. All in all, it was a lot of fun. And a lot of red.
1/ Makeup for the first day of MI, I like to call it my signature lip // 2/ MI Skulls everywhere // 3/ With my partner in crime @neretos, shot by @redamphotography

While in most of the events I go, someone offers you a glass of prosecco as soon as you open the door, this time it was completely different. It started at 11AM and that’s a big difference already. (more…)

If anyone asks me how was the Copenhagen Fashion Week, I say I loved it in a second. So many great collections, such a stylish crowd around, such a cool city to be in – how could you not?
What I like the most about Scandinavian fashion is that it almost looks as if the designers’ team was working under no pressure. Which is probably not true at all, but just the feeling of not making too much effort makes the atmosphere so relaxed and that is one of the main things I look up to in fashion. Simplicity is the key. Am I right?-
Before the autumn comes I want to share the top SS17 collections from Copenhagen Fashion Week. There is no first or second here, I am not rating them. It’s just the ones that I subjectively enjoyed the most. Hopefully you did/will too.
-I will start with Fonnesbech
(picture above). A brand, that has a suprisingly long history in a fashion world. It was founded in 1847 and grew from a small basement shop to an exclusive department store, to a successful brand later on, that stands for high quality, sophisticated and responsible fashion.
Classy with a twist – that is how I would describe the SS17 collection and that would also be quite an accurate description of the brand as a whole. Sun bleached color range and flexible silluethes, as well as the set of the runway and the live music, created a very relaxed atmosphere.
Every piece in it is pretty much what I would add to my pinterest
board these days. Even if there was nothing unexpected, I praise Fonnesbech for giving the modern feeling while standing true to their brand. Well done, Mia Lisa Spon!
If you follow my Instagram, you obviously know what I’ve been doing last week. It was hard to miss such thing. If you not (although you know you should), oh well, keep on reading. I’ve been attending Copenhagen Fashion Week shows and events and now, since I’m back home, I’m going to post series of posts about it.
So, here is the very first part of my three days in Copenhagen.
I started out the fashion week by attending breakfast at Tommy Hilfiger showroom. After an early 7AM flight, that was a great kick putting me in a fashion week mood. Coffee, tasty breakfast snacks, stylish people and pretty clothes around – who would refuse a chance to start a day like that?
