Is Jesus trending?


In the past few years we’ve seen a lot of  religion themed fashion trends - crosses, rose crowns, biblical icons & other wonders. But the thing that I just can’t manage to understand is the one that I see on the streets every day. I see at least three or four Jesus-looking guys on a daily basis. Long beards, weird hats, horrible hair, long coats, glasses & homeless-looking clothing. And these are not homeless persons at all - 20, 30-something guys with jobs, girlfriends and families. I don’t really get the ‘beard thing’ as well, you get to see that in fashion ads and music videos, but all that comes to my mind is - Why?

Days have passed and I’ve found the time & the energy to write about what I’ve seen in Riga Fashion Week AW13/14. As always, I am going to be honest, if I don’t like something - I say it. If I hate something, I say it even louder. I had the chance to go to fashion shows by Ieva Daugirdaitė, Comeforbreakfast, Nóló, Lena Tsokalenko & Irina Skladnova. I’m going to write about the good, the bad, the great & the horrible.
