Hooray – it’s 2017! Time for a change, new hopes, new goals… or is it? It is somehow nice to know you have the whole New Year to achieve something (whether it’s your personal fitness plan or a more global aim). But isn’t every day a new day and a perfect time for a change? If 2017 is your starting point of change, here is some inspiration for you from our designers who shared their new year wishes.
And no, it’s not just about fashion.
Andrius Kazlauskas (Kazauka): I wish to the world empathetic persistence to resist.
Dear Freedom: Peace
Julia Janus: I wish a year of no bullshit. There is no universal wish to the entire world – people are all different. But I think, what would be really helpful – to stop bullshitting.
Ramune Piekautaite: Style
Robertas Kalinkinas (Robert Kalinkin): To understand that we are the ones least affected by our own decisions.
The Knotty Ones: It’s nice to be cool, but it’s cooler to be nice. So in 2017, simply try to be nice – to yourself, your loved ones and the ladies who make your clothes.
Smart Booby: Adventures!
Tadam!: May you have peace with yourself and the world! And don’t stop sharing – all the good things but also the mistakes you make.
D.Efect: Women are bombarded with digitally altered images every day, pressuring them to fit in to unrealistic beauty standards. One day the freckles on your face are deemed ugly and then the next thing you see is the new “faux freckle” trend pushed by the media. The real you is just never enough. Go against this idea. Embrace your imperfections. Beauty is just a construct highly influenced by the magazines, television and social media. This is your call to freedom. Embrace #thebeautyofimperfection and have a happy holiday season.
