Hey MFP Lovers!
Welcome to the very first MFP Lover Q&A. From this month onward we will be sharing with you the outcomes of our chit-chats with some of our favourite people and MFP' friends and collaborators out there.
This time, we are presenting you with MFP Lover Violetta Kassapi. Violetta is not only a a very talented and amazingly inspired stylist and creative director with striking style, she is a very lovely human being on the whole, and that's why we love her (and she loves us back!).
Violetta is a freelance stylist, costume designer. The Camden-native has increasingly become a key figure in the London fashion scene over the past few years. She started her career as an assistant at Rankin’s Studio, moving quickly on to work on many important and strongly appreciated projects within the fashion, music and film businesses. Violetta used to be Viper' magazine Fashion Editor and has styled editorials for i-D, Dazed and Hunger amongst the others; she also features collaborations in music videos and films from Major Lazer, Rudimental and MØ. Recently she designed a collection for the youth-driven label Illustrated People as well. Her style is eye-catching, unique and therefore easy to recognise; it is very raw and direct by matching perfectly the typical Londonish urban girly vibe with a bold and distinctive taste.
Read her witty come-backs to our questions below and see some examples of our projects with her at the end of this post!

Is there any art in logic?
If logic has a pattern then yes
Are you team tattoos or team piercing (or none)?
Growing up in Camden the whole tattoo / piercing thing faded out to me at a young age when we were all going down to the piercing shop after school. It was a bit too easy for us...I love them though.

I think every just-out-of-the-shower moment
