EN: Usually I don’t do refashioning because I don’t find it even near as interesting as the whole process of making a garment from searching for an adequate pattern and style to sewing itself. In refashioning I always feel inhibited because, to some extent, the limits are already defined. However, sometimes I get inspiration for that, especially if  I can achieve something totally new with little work. I got this skirt as a present, and it originally didn’t have suspenders and was long  just below the knees. I don’t have to mention that it fit me awful. This was one of the easiest refashioning because it was nice at the hips (I doubt that I would do this if it didn’t). I just cut the length and made suspenders of it and that’s all! From my-auntie-style skirt I got this comfortable, warm skirt that is totally my thing, here wearing with the same color shirt and my boyfriend’s sweater. As much as I don’t like refashioning I love and admire when someone else does it in a creative and inspiring way. One type of refashioning and renewing our environment is a street art, in which I enjoy so much because it can bring colors and vibrancy to any gray city. Here are some photos of graffiti that I have encountered in the narrow streets of Athens. Check more on myInstagram! How do you feel about street art?

SR: Obično ne prepravljam odeću jer mi to nije ni probližno zanimljivo kao ceo proces pravljenja nekog komada od traženja ideja za adekvatan kroj i stil do samog šivenja. Kod prepravljanja se osetim uvek sputano jer su granice u neku ruku već određene. Ipak, ponekad imam inspiraciju i za to, pogotovo ako sa malo rada mogu da dobijem nešto skroz novo. Ovu suknju sam dobila na poklon, i po svom prvobitnom izgledu nije imala tregere i bila je dugačka do malo ispod kolena. Ne moram da pominjem da mi je grozno stajala. Ovo je bilo jedno od najlakših prepravljanja ikad jer mi je suknja bila taman u kukovima (da nije, sumnjam da bih se uhvatila tog posla), samo sam od isečene dužine napravila tregere i to je to! Od suknje u tetka stilu dobila sam udobnu, toplu suknju u mom fazonu, koju ovde nosim sa košuljom iste boje i džemperom mog dečka. Koliko ja ne volim da prepravljam toliko volim i cenim kad neko drugi to čini na kreativan i inspirativan način. Jedna vrsta prepravljanja i ulepšavanja okoline je i ulična umetnost, koju ja toliko volim jer može da donese toliko boja i živosti svakom sivom gradu. Evo fotografija nekih primera na koje sam naišla u uskim ulicama Atine. Pogledajte više na mom Instagramu. Šta vi mislite o uličnoj umetnosti?
