I remember sitting with Nafsika on the steps of the School of Architecture, smoking and talking about classes and ancient greek sandal designs. A passionate architect and a talented MTV VJ, Nafsika is one of the happiest and most talented people I know of. Just weeks before she escapes on a remote Greek island to get some rest, she tells me she will have the Horrors’ latest album on her i-pod and shows me a small doll picturing a Luca Libre warrior that her boyfriend gave her.
Describe your personal style.
I believe my personal style is the sum of all the elements I like from each decade. From the 40s I chose the skirt length, from the 50s the tight and toned waist, the red lipstick, the hair. From the 60s the peter pan collar and the mod dresses, the 70s are all about the playsuits and the sunglasses. From the 80s I chose the high socks, the fluo colors and the tights… and from the 90s I pick the plaid shirts and the Bagger boots.

The interviews, the fact that I get to meet artist, the concerts and the trips I get to go when I have to cover events that take place in other countries.
