Natasha from The Fashion Pixels, also i have a little skype interview with her to dig a little bit more about her : "I'm Natasha, a three quarters Greek and one quarter Russian student living in Belgium from the age of 5. I've been in love with fashion for years now, following trends, watching shows, drawing designs, so this year I decided to take this 'love' to the next level by actively lookbooking since late September and blogging for a month now."
So, you are a three quarters Greek and one quarter Russian , tell me about it !
Well my grandfather is from Russia, his parents left the URSS in 1919 , and lived in Greece, that's where I got my colours from.you wont find that many "pale" people in Greece
It is such a really interesting story. Now, why are you live in Belgium ?
I moved here when I was 5 because my mother got a job here and then my father came over, and we just liked the place so much we all decided to stay here! Greece is now only a summer holidays place
At what age do you fall in love with fashion ? Do the people in Belgium inspire you ?
At around 8,I started dressing on my own.'I wouldn't let my mother dress me up and i had created my own style.And not really because the people here are a bit "gray" also Brussels is not know for its fashion, Antwerp is.
