The thing with weddings is that we just don’t get enough of them. So, for those of us who enjoy dressing up for big events, we certainly face the risk of overdoing our outfit led by the excitement of the moment.

This is why at ecoKomorebi we have joined forces to offer you a list of personal recommendations that we think are useful when preparing an outstanding “wedding guest look”.

  1. Bet on comfort. Remember that you will have to go through long hours of social interaction: starting with the ceremony and ending up at the dance floor! So, there is no reason to sabotage yourself by picking up the wrong accessories – especially now that there are so many comfy platform sandals to choose from.
  2. Plan ahead. You don’t want to be deciding on what to wear or how to wear it the day before the event. Try out your outfit quietly at home so that you can pay attention to detail. For instance, getting the right underwear is essential. Is your bra or the seam of your panties showing? Will your jewellery or headdress hold their positions all through the day/night? Read more

There might be a few things about Ibiza you didn’t know if you haven’t been there yet. Apart from its unique atmosphere, beautiful weather and breathtaking serpentines, the place has a lot more to offer. As a matter fact, if you visit the island in the off-season, you might be able to enjoy empty and peaceful bays and beaches wrapped up in the most magical light.

But we are not done yet. Ibiza also offers a great opportunity to experience history together with shopping.  Have you heard about its famous Hippy Market? Read more

A dream come true for the bohemian bride

We met Mireia Solsona, founder of MIMÈTIK Bcn. The brand’s romantic bride collections and its original convertible party dresses make the delights of those women who not only aim for the perfect look but also value a fair production process and a timeless design.

What can you tell us about the beginnings of the brand?
The beginnings go back to 2007, when I was still finishing my architecture studies. Some years ago I had already had the opportunity to travel to India, Greece and Thailand, and every time my attention was lead to the same thing: the traditional garments women were wearing in these countries. Those dresses had the interesting characteristic of being convertible – thus, they could suit both skinny and pregnant women. The size didn’t change. I immediately thought that this was exactly the opposite of what was happening within the fashion industry in the Occidental World, where we are offered a lot of different sizes that make it difficult for us to use the same items from one season to the next the moment your body changes a bit.

And how can you adapt the same dress to different body sizes?
The key is to work with geometrical patterns, with no concrete shape. Plus, each of us women brings out her own femininity in a different way. That’s the reason why it is important that one dress can become many others. I wanted us to have a chance to explore our own creativity – and, at the same time, fight the fast fashion industry.
