Long has it been since I posted. I am starting to think of a Russian version of CHICLASH, and those who know me well will tell you that this thought keeps haunting me, and the blogger guilt of not posting is increasing with each day. 

Having done a lot of thinking I came to a conclusion that time has come to switch to something more... grown-up maybe. There is no way I am saying that blogs aren't sophisticated. This blog started as a teenage entertainment and self-exploration, and turned into a proper platform for sharing my perspective of fashion, Ukrainian fashion in particular. It's just that I have dozens of ideas for articles, and they have stopped fitting into the format of this blog. So here I am, just saying farewell to CHICLASH. All my fellow bloggers will understand how hard it is for me. 

I started this blog when I was 16, and then it was a whole other universe for me. I am now 21, and my views on fashion and the world around me have been transformed and are still constantly changing. Studying a masters course at LCF challenges my fashion beliefs on a daily basis, and I hope this constant mobility and search for something fresh will continue when I graduate.   

I didn't want this blog to be dead, and it isn't. It was a major part of my life, and it helped me in discovering my passion for the fashion industry. I am not training to be a journalist, yet I am hoping to pursue writing about fashion business as a freelancer alongside something else. I am planning to be out and about at every possible fashion event, just like I was when I was a blogger at CHICLASH.

In the meantime, you can check out a recent post of mine on Fashion Week With Daria Shapovalova website if you understand Russian, and there are more projects and collaborations to come. You can stay in touch with me via LinkedIn.

The blogger community will always hold a special place in me, and I will definitely continue to follow many amazing blogs.

My dear lovely readers,

You will see more of me, even if not on this website.
