How to choose quality textures?

Base of clothes consists of textures so it is very important to get know its characteristics better in purpose to learn to choose quality texture.

Today, on textures market is huge supply of mixture textures ( 45-55% cotton, rest are various artificial textures ) and artificial textures. The main reason for that is lower quantity of natural resources for production of natural textures. Still, from full supply we should try to find if not clothes made from natural textures then at least with smaller percentage of mix with artificial textures. In natural textures pertain cotton, silk, linen, viscose, wool, leather, till in artificial textures pertain all compounds made from chemical and industrial manufacturing such as various synthetics fibers, polyester, poliamid, gum, shiny textures and other artificial mixtures.

Why is it important to educate or learn more about materials from which our clothes are produced, and we buy/receive and wear? Because of three reasons: healthful, hygienic and esthetic. Healthful, because our skin has to breath and get enough oxygen for normal function, not to sweat too much when also get out bad smell till to have some allergies, skin problems and diseases. Second reason is hygienic means on which way you take care of textures as also hygiene of your body. And the third reason is esthetic, how materials react on atmospherics and on our bodies after some time period.

How to make difference between natural and artificial textures? Through their characteristics. Even though, today manufacturing is becoming more and more technologically accomplished in that manner that even texture experts can’t recognize difference between them, still below the hand you can feel the difference. I had that luck that this knowledge about textures that I have today, I got from childhood, and I grow up and develop with it. Because of that, I gladly share it with you.:) Natural textures are soft, pleasant and don’t scratch below the hand. Body can breath under them, you don’t sweat much, there are no unpleasant smells and all because body normally function. You can’t feel any scratch or unpleasant feeling on your skin and there are no skin diseases. I recommend, especially for underwear and socks ( items that go directly on our skin ) to be made of mixtures with minimum 55-60% of cotton or from pure natural textures.  Artificial textures, in comparison with natural, are rough, scratch or make disruption of pleasant feeling below hand and often are shiny and very elastic. It’s very warm under them, we sweat a lot and smell badly. Itching, redness and allergy are most of the time their faithful followers as also possibility of developing skin diseases. They should use rarely, not directly on skin and in mixture with natural textures in percentage not bigger than 45%.

All of this above serve us to better recognize quality item made from quality material, through his persistence, unchangeability in length and width with period of time till fashion designer’s precise construction and skilled hands that sewing it, stitch, seam, thread route, etc. That theme know much better my colleagues, fashion designers.:)

I hope that this text will be useful and that will open one new world about textures to you. To be aware of things around you and on you, what you put on, everyone need from time to time.

Kako izabrati kvalitetan materijal?

Osnovu odevnog predmeta cini materijal, s toga je vazno da se sto bolje upoznamo sa njegovim karakteristikama kako bi umeli da izaberemo kvalitetan materijal.

Danas, na trzistu tkanina od kojih se proizvodi odeca je velika ponuda mesavina materijala ( 45-55% pamuk, ostatak razni vestacki materijali ) i vestackih materijala. Razlog tome jeste pre svega sve manja kolicina prirodnih resursa za izradu prirodnih materijala. Ipak, iz izobilja ponude treba da se potrudimo da pronadjemo ako ne odecu od prirodnih tkanina onda bar sa manjim procentom mesavine sa vestackim tkaninama. U prirodne tkanine spadaju pamuk, svila, lan, viskoza, vuna, koza dok u vestacke tkanine spadaju sve smese dobijene hemijskom i industrijskom preradom kao sto su razna sinteticka vlakna, poliester, poliamid, guma, sjajne tkanine i ostale vestacke mesavine.

Zasto je vazno da se edukujemo ili bolje upoznamo sa materijalima od kojih je proizvedena odeca koju kupujemo/dobijamo i oblacimo!? Iz tri razloga: zdravstvenog, higijenskog i estetskog. Zdravstvenog, zbog toga sto nasa koza treba da dise i dobija dovoljno kiseonika za normalno funkcionisanje, da ne bude preteranog znoja cesto neprijatnog mirisa pa sve do izlaska raznih alergija, koznih problema i oboljenja. Drugi razlog je higijenski, nacin na koji se odrzava tkanina kao i higijena naseg tela. I treci razlog je estetske prirode, kako reaguju materijali pod atmosferskim uslovima i nasim telima sa protokom vremena.

Kako razlikovati prirodne od vestackih materijala? Prema njihovim karakteristikama. Iako danas su se do te mere tehnoloski usavrsile izrade mesavina tkanina da skoro i vrsni znalci u ovoj oblasti industrije odece ne mogu vise sa sigurnoscu da prepoznaju prirodne od mesavine materijala, i dalje pod rukom se moze napraviti razlika. Imala sam tu srecu da ovo znanje koje danas imam o materijalima dobijam od malih nogu, i rastem i razvijam se sa njim. Zato ga rado delim i sa vama.:) Prirodni materijali su mekani, prijatni i ne grebu pod rukom. Telo se ne zaparava pod njima niti previse znoji, nema neprijatnih mirisa jer koza moze normalno da dise. Ne oseca se nikakav svrab niti nelagodnost na kozi i ne dovode do razvijanja koznih bolesti. Preporucujem, posebno kod donjeg vesa i carapa ( odevni predmeti koji idu direktno do koze ) birati mesavinu sa minimum 55-60% pamuka ili od cisto prirodnih materijala. Vestacki materijali, za razliku od prirodnih, su grublji, grebu ili tek remete prijatnost pod rukom i cesto su sjajni i veoma elasticni. Koza se pod njima zaparava, pojacano znoji i ispusta neprijatne mirise. Svrab, crvenilo i alergije su cesti pratioci kao i mogucnost razvoja koznih oboljenja. Treba ih koristiti umereno, ne direktno uz kozu i sa procentom ne vecim od 45% u mesavini sa prirodnim materijalima.

Sve ovo ide u prilog prepoznavanja kvalitetnog odevnog predmeta izradjenog od kvalitetnog materijala, preko njegove istrajnosti, nepromenljivosti u duzini i sirini s vremenom do same precizne konstrukcije dizajnera i veoma spretnih ruku za izradu istog, bod, sav, putanja konca, itd. Tu temu vec mnogo bolje poznaju moje kolege modni dizajneri.:)

Nadam se da ce vam ovaj tekst koristiti i otvoriti jedan novi svet o materijalima. Osvestiti stvari oko sebe i na sebi, sta oblacimo, svakome je potrebno s vremena na vreme.

Do sledeceg bloga,

Vasa KJ

Style vs Fashion

Always rivals or standing next to each other!? I was never attracted by fashion, at least not on that way that people immediately think of when they say that word ( fashion = beauty, esthetics, luxury, clothing, make up and other shallow things ), but one side of fashion called creativity did and always will attract me. Furthermore, fashion was my professional milestone and hint of direction in which my further prof. development will go till the final profession, what I do today, Styling Consultancy.

In 2011, I wrote my first blogs on this theme and they were mostly rebellion against fashion and fashion trends, and in fervour of style. Today, from this point of view with a little more professional experience, fashion and style will become best friends that will go hand by hand in the near future. Things are more and more personalized what’s same happen on field of clothing. Of course, that does not mean that fashion designers will become fashion psychologists but they start to make more clothes for different personalities then for empty bodies or human dolls, also. Still, the same as relation between industry and technology versus human being and his intelligence, style will always be one step forward in comparison to fashion, simply because of inner condition of human being that only he can recognize and become aware of. Fashion is a unique clothing maschine and it will follow human life just to the certain point but, man will still transfer his present life situations in his clothing. On that way, he will still be in charge, and not some maschine, of his unique style which will follow personal development of human being.

So, my dear followers, follow fashion and fashion trends by choosing what does personally match to you, as a person and human being, and that moment when you start blindly follow fashion magazines and runways and put clothes on yourself as a part of routine with excuse that is socially accepted, take a minute and ask yourself in which direction your life start to go.

Stil vs moda

Veciti rivali ili stoje jedno uz drugo!? Moda me nikada nije privlacila, bar ne onako kako se odmah pomisli kada se ta rec izgovori ( moda = lepota, estetika, luksuz, oblacenje, sminkanje i ostale povrsne stvari ) ali jedna njena strana zvana kreativnost i te kako jeste. Stavise, bila je prekretnica mog profesionalnog zivota i nagovestaj u kom pravcu ce dalje teci moj profesionalni razvoj do konacne profesije, Styling Consultanta.

Moji prvi blogovi na ovu temu, 2011-te godine, bili su najvecim delom bunt protiv mode i modnih trendova a u korist stila. Danas, sa ove tacke  gledista i malo vise prof. iskustva, moda i stil ce u skorijoj buducnosti biti dva najbolja prijatelja koja ce ici ruku pod ruku jedno s drugim. Sve vise se personalizuju stvari pa je tako i na polju odevanja. Naravno, to ne znaci da ce dizajneri na kraju postati modni psiholozi ali i oni sve vise pocinju da prave odecu za razlicite licnosti a ne prazna tela ili ti ljudske lutke. Ipak, bas kao odnos industrije i tehnologije naspram coveka i njegove inteligencije, stil ce uvek ostati jedan korak ispred mode, prosto zbog jedinstvenog unutrasnjeg stanja u coveku koje samo on moze da oslusne i spozna. Moda je svojevrsna masina odevanja i samo ce donekle ispratiti zivot jednog coveka. Medjutim, covek ce i dalje u svoje odevanje pretakati trenutna desavanja iz njegovog zivota. Na taj nacin ce i dalje on a ne nekakva masinerija razvijati svoj jedinstven stil koji ide u korak sa razvojem njegovog bica.

Tako da, dragi moji pratioci, pratite modu i modne trendove birajuci sta licno odgovara vama, kao licnosti i bicu, a onog trenutka kada pocnete slepo da pratite magazine i piste i rutinski oblacite odecu na sebe sa izgovorom da je tako drus. prihvatljivo, zastanite na trenutak i zapitajte se kuda je vas zivot krenuo.

Mi spajamo licnost sa odecom

Kada dodjete na prvu styling konsultaciju, popunjavate upitnik iz koga mi ne upoznajemo samo mere, potrebe i navike vaseg tela vec i vasu licnost. Kako provodite jedan dan a kako slobodno vreme, da li se bavite sportom ili imate druge hobije i koje, su pitanja koja zaokruzuju nasu sliku o vasem zivotnom tempu. Nakon toga, na nama je da odredimo i usmerimo vas ka odeci koja taj tempo moze i da isprati, da ne bi izgledali kao da ste izgubljeni u sopstvenom odelu.:)

Bar jednom u zivotu ste videli, u Srbiji cesce na svadbama, zenu koja ima na sebi usku haljinu koja ima umetnutnu neku vecu strukturu npr. cvet ili neki geometrijski oblik, i visoke potpetice a ona bi non-stop igrala, ne sedi na jednom mestu, u stalnom je pokretu pa haljinu konstantno povlaci na dole jer ne moze da se krece kako je njena priroda vuce, cvet na haljini smeta a noge se lome na potpeticama i sve u svemu, izgleda smesno i ne uskladjeno. To jednostavno nije bila odeca za nju, ne ni na svecanostima, o javnim nastupima da ni ne govorimo … To je razlog zasto se mi bavimo i telom i licnoscu sto je sloj dublje, kada govorimo o odevanju.

S jedne strane je estetika i usmeravanje ka dobrom ukusu gde posmatramo vasu figuru, lice, paletu boja, materijale i mere

figure-shape-women

a s druge strane, je vasa licnost gde dobijamo informacije cime se bavite, sta vas interesuje, koji su vam hobiji, zelje, preferencije, kako provodite slobodno vreme i prema njoj odredjujemo krojeve i vrste materijala od kojih odgovarajuca odeca treba da bude skrojena da bi mogla vasu licnost i da isprati.

Samo ako se dobro, opusteno i komforno osecate u svom odelu, bez obzira na situaciju u kojoj ste, to jeste vas styling. U protivnom, styling nije vas, lose se osecate i jos losije izgledate a to je ono sto ne zelite.

For who and why are styling services necessary?

The answer is for everyone. Why – because each of us, doesn’t matter if we have a talent for clothing and estethics and have a good taste, work in some of fashion professions or we don’t have a talent and we are insecure when we talk about styling, from time to time need to involve someone outside of our life to push us harder to exit from monotony or change we delay for a while. The most recent we try to find answer on our frustrations in fashion magazines and in friends, who work in fashion industry, advice but what we really need is just simply ask ourselves: how are we going to spend our time today, which activites will we do and which activities do we need, and on that way we will actually become aware of type of personality that we have. And from here, we will looking for clothes that match our personalities not only our bodies, with all respect to my colleagues from fashion world.

Group of people that have a talent for fashion and talent from birth for good taste and than naturally are involved in some of fashion jobs are the hardest to let someone else to be involved in their clothes and wardrobe. The main reasons are their rejected attitude and high vanity that he/she posses that they are born for styling, and all is finished here. None know more than them in this field! BUT, as I belong to this group either, I can say that we need help either as anyone else. By all, we are all just human beings!:)

When in previous five years, I changed my style twice what’s totally normal as our personality developing, I wished my own Styling Consultant a couple of times. It came to my mind ‘ Ah, it will be great to have now Consultant … ‘ as I needed to do a few shoppings, wardrobe makeover, cleaning my shoe space and jewelry and it would be much easier and better to have someone as right hand, and to be professionlist with fresh ideas.

My first makeover – I cut my hair to be short after 15 years!

As conclusion, I warmly invite all people that are similar to me, to find and contact Styling Consultant as they feel relief that I couldn’t. Of course, I don’t want to disregard those people that centrally need help as they are with lack of selfconfidence and belief in their way of wearing clothes, Styling Consultant as my clients said, read here KJ Clients feedbacks, bring them selfconfidence, rational spending of time and money and efficiency in styling for every situation.

Kome su i zasto potrebne styling usluge?

Odgovor je svakome, a zasto – zato sto svakome od nas, bilo da imamo talenat za odevanje i estetiku odnosno dobar ukus i bavimo se nekom od profesija u modnoj industriji ili pak talenat nemamo i prilicno smo nesigurni kada je odeca u pitanju, s vremena na vreme je potrebno da ukljucimo nekoga spolja da nas pogura ka izlazu iz monotonije tj. zacaranog kruga ili ka promeni koju nikako da ucinimo. Najcesce se prvo hvatamo za modne magazine, ne bi li pokupili neki trend, i za prijateljice i poznanike iz modne industrije a ono sto ustvari treba da uradimo jeste da sebi postavimo jedno jednostavno pitanje: kako smo danas proveli dan, kojim aktivnostima je bio ispunjen i koje aktivnosti trebamo, i tako zapravo osvestimo kakva je nasa licnost. Prema njoj treba da trazimo garderobu, uz duzno postovanje mojim kolegama iz mode.

Grupi ljudi koja ima talenat za modu i urodjen dobar ukus pa s tim se prirodno i bave nekim poslom u modnoj industriji jeste najteze kada je u pitanju prepustanje drugome da se mesa u njihov orman. Tu je odmah odbramben stav i sujeta da je on/ona rodjen-a za to i tu se sve zavrsava. Medjutim, kako i sama pripadam ovoj grupi ljudi mogu da kazem da je i nama i te kako potrebna pomoc kao i svima ostalima. Ipak smo svi mi samo ljudi.:)

Kada sam u poslednjih pet godina, dva puta menjala svoj stil odevanja sto je sa razvojem nase licnosti sasvim prirodno, pozelela sam sopstvenog Styling Consultant-a nekoliko puta. Pomislila sam ” Ah, tako bi mi dobro dosao .. ! ” jer je trebalo ici u nekoliko shopping-a, sredjivati orman, cipelarnik i nakit, a lakse je i lepse kada imas desnu ruku, i to profesionalnu, sa uvek svezim idejama.

Moja prva promena stila – otsecena kosa na kratko posle 15 god.!

 

Zato, kao zakljucak, pozivam sve slicne meni, da se obrate i potraze Styling Consultant-a jer ce imati olaksanje koje ja nisam imala. Svakako, bez zanemarivanja i onih manje sigurnih ljudi i ” nevernih toma ” po pitanju oblacenja, Styling Consultant kao sto su moji klijenti rekli, procitajte ovde KJ Clients feedbacks, donosi samopouzdanje, racionalno trosenje vremena i novca i efikasnost u oblacenju u svakoj situaciji.
