Ta da! Shebang! Kapow, bam, and zap! Another interview, with another fantabulous style blogger. Mary is a blogger from Germany who is a lover of all things Led Zeppelin (has a crush on Robert Plant! but not judging!), David Bowie, and like all teenagers the world over- pizza. She also wears the galaxy print well. Without looking like a boring modern mall rat. Anyways, my interview with Mary of Kaleidoscope eyes.
1.) Who is your favorite designer?
Um. I have to say, I'm not that interested in runway fashion - I just
wear whatever I want, without thinking about if it's trendy or not. But I
LOVE Meadham Kirchhoff. Their collections are absolutely brilliant and
awesome. It's real art.
2.) What is fashion like in Germany? Do you have a favorite German designer?
It really depends on where you live! If you're living on the countryside
like me, fashion is more like "it's cold today and it's too damn early
to even think and I'm going to wear that sweater and a pair of
bluejeans". There are not many people here who are really interested in
fashion, I guess. However, in bigger Towns like Würzburg, fashion is
just, like, a code. Everybody looks, like, exactly the same!
Straightened hair, bluejeans, bright top and a necklace. Believe me,
it's almost scary! You feel like you're in a dollhouse full of barbies
and you're the only "real" person. That's fashion in medium-size cities.
In the capital of Germany, in Berlin, fashion is the way it should be.
There are many different styles and stores, people think about what they
wear more but aren't judging you in a negative way (if you're
surrounded by a nice crowd, of course. again, it depends!). Berlin is
probably the best town in Germany if you're interested in fashion.
3.) I'm always surprised how every country has it's own movie stars,
singers, magazines,etc that aren't too famous in other places. Who
should us non-German citizens know about, art/music/film/fashion wise?
Um... eh... Well... As I am more interested in, like, other countries
than Germany, I don't know much about Germany. But there are some nice
magazines here! There's one called "Galore", they specialize on
interviews. And those interviews are awesome, believe me. Art-wise,
there's the documenta, a huge art fair in Kassel every four or five
years. But I guess it's quite famous, Idk :D It's amazing! I went there
once and I was totally stunned by all the contemporary art. I don't know
more, I'm sorry - music-wise, I only listen to 70s rock and art-wise, I
love Frida Kahlo and some performance artists.
4.) If you could meet anyone alive or dead, who would would it be?
I CAN'T DECIDE!!! I would LOVE to meet Frida Kahlo, or Robert Plant from
Led Zeppelin, or Tavi Gevinson or David Bowie or Jim Morrison or
anybody who was at Woodstock or the guy who invented pizza or - God,
there are so much more! Don't make me decide. I love meeting people who
know about things I don't know much about, and I love meeting people
with whom you can talk for hours. Looooong conversations are the best
thing ever. I don't know. I'm not good at this interview thing.
