A quiet sunday afternoon in Sofia art gallery

Ivan

Describe your style.
My style is influenced by the gothic rock and industrial.
How is your style accepted?
The people around me understand my style - at parties, where everyone is extravagant.
What do you think about street style in Bulgaria?
I like the fact that it's loose, easy-going and carefree. I don't like the mass trends, when everything and everyone is uniform.
Where do you shop?
There is a great store called "Metal Heaven" close to NDK, in the subway passage.

A queit sunday afternoon in Sofia Art Gallery

Velik
Describe your style.
I wear a lot of black. I like the industrial gothic-influenced style, avant-garde clothing, fetishized, with chokers, PVC materials and the like.
Where can you wear this?
Only at the parties that I make. I work here at the gallery (Sofia art gallery) and I cannot wear the exact styles I like.
Something you would never wear?
Pink. I hate it.
What do you think about second-hand shopping?
It's a good opportunity if you want to find cheap but interesting items. I think younger people in Bulgaria shop second-hand a lot. Shopping in the regular boutiques is too easy. And snubbish.
There's a good second-hand shop which I visit often, it's a two-floor store on "Slivnitsa" Str. close to "Luvov most", in Sofia.

Keath

Where are you from?
I am from the US. But I am currently working and living in Bulgaria. For six months now.
Have you ever shopped here in Bulgaria? I have never actually. It's quite difficult to shop here. Because the good quality clothes tend to be rather expensive here. But my wife shops for me and she sends me clothes over here from the US. I get most of my clothes on ebay. And they don't ship to Bulgaria so my wife sends them to me.

Iva


Describe your style.
I am now wearing a summer skirt, with tights, boots and a jacket. I like elegant clothes. I love black and white.
What do you want to buy next?
I want to buy a new pair of boots.
Something you would never wear?
Metal-style :-)

Ana-Maria

Describe your style
It's hard to define. I get inspired a lot by punk and grunge music.
For example, Curt Cobaine was stylish.
And I am a musician myself so I like to experiment with my style. I get lots of comments about it, mostly from my mother. She doesn't agree with it. As for my friends and the people around me, they like it, they think it's funny and crazy.


What is your opinion about the street style in Bulgaria?
The thing that bothers me about the street style here is the chalga-influence. I can't stand it.

Kiril

Something you wouldn't wear?
Bulgarian designers ...with very very few exceptions. I cannot actually think of something I wouldn't wear.
What's the last thing you bought?
A pair of black and white retro shoes.
Can you recommend some good high-quality second-hand shops in Sofia?
Placebo, Muhomorka, well, they have sport style clothes mostly. And there's one on "Neofit Rilski" Str., it's a small garage shop.

Tedi

How would you describe your style?
I don't know, I don't have a specific style. I like punk. I like customizing and creating clothes, mixing styles. My style is very much grunge and punk-influenced. Something you would like to wear?
Right now I would like a pair of huge combat boots with colourful shoe laces.
Something you would never wear?
Mini skirts, high-heel shoes.
What do you like about the street style in Bulgaria and what pisses you off?
I hate the chalga. I hate when 15-year-old girls dress like 30-year olds. It's stupid. You should experiment more and be crazy and extravagant and not care when you are a teenager. You won't be able to do it when you get old.

What do you like about the street style in Bulgaria? And what pisses you off?

(his friend asks what's that)
A patchwork is a collage. That's when you combine different styles and merge them into one.
