Anna Selezneva, scars and all

The number one way to console ourselves when we make a permanent dent in our own exterior is to convince ourselves that people aren’t really all that dissimilar to rustic furniture; a few character marks actually make us more interesting. But often as a model such things as scars – even birthmarks, moles, character lines – get the once-over with the the kind of healing tool that exists in the digital world even if it doesn’t have a real-life equivalent. In a world where too much photoshop can at its best rid people of life’s little marks and at its worst rid them of reality all together, seeing a portrait of Anna Selezneva complete with a scarred forearm is somewhat refreshing. It’s a reminder that skin is a canvas with many stories to tell – and really that’s no bad thing.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
