EXCLUSIVE: Talented Fashion Editor Al Giga shares a moment on LaFashionelle
Famous and one of my favorite Fashion Editors/Stylists/ Al Giga accepted my invitation for a short but meaningful Blog-Interview. I'm sure you all know him, but for those who don't, Al Giga is on the front row in the Greek world of fashion. A real professional, a gifted art human being but above all a whole personality. He has on his back many great collaborations with Greek celebrities, fashion designers, magazines and so on. But he doesn't like advertising himself. He believes that his work can speak for himself. And he is so right... He is Helena's Paparizou stylist for years now. Those two, seem to have created an unbeatable team!
Al, modest and simple, as he is, answers to my questions...
*What was your motivation in becoming a stylist/image maker?
Instinct and passion.
*How do you define "style"?
A way of life.
*What inspires you the most?
My life and intuition.

*Working in the fashion industry must be very hard and exhausting. What keeps your mind grounded and your soul in peace?
*According to your aesthetics, what's the hottest trend for this season?

*Do women in Greece have a good sense of style or are they carried away sometimes by fashion trends?
Less is more.
*Do you have a new project coming? What's your goal for the near future?
Yes I am beginning to work with a painter to style for paintings, more info to come soon.....
Special thanks to you Al for accepting my request! You are one of a kind...
