Have you ever felt an instant connection with someone you’ve met like 5 seconds ago? Sometimes it’s the common interest you share, other times it’s the positive aura you feel when you’re around them, but regardless of the reason that connects you to this person, you can’t help but wish for them to become your instant BFFs, even though you know them for just a brief few minutes. It’s a feeling you can’t really describe and yet you’re glad you have the chance to experience it.
That’s exactly what I felt when I met Ana, a 20 year old architecture student who also happens to be the second face behind our Cool Faces Of Bastet Noirseries. Her humble nature, her ability to style things up and make an outfit look flawlessly chic, mixed with her sassy confidence and badass attitude is what draw me to her. Gotta love a person with a positive outlook on life and Ana has positivity in abundance and bouncy curls, many of them. Her Instagram account bristles with arty photos of her travels, her killer minimal fashion outfits and selfies of her adorable resting bitch face. That’s why, every morning before starting work as we’re taking a sip of our morning coffee cup, her account is our go-to space for daily inspiration, read obssesion. So here’s a bit about the girl who made our last collection to literally sparkle.
Tell us a bit more about yourself. What do you do?
My name is Ana, I’m 20 years old, currently living in Skopje, where I enjoy the time thoroughly. I study architecture and that is my priority for now. Satisfaction in life? To travel and explore, to see new things and constantly learn. The ones who know me well, would say I’m always positive and easy-going, waiting on the edge for adventure. Also, the ultimate cat lady. I’ll describe myself as a type of person who learns from experience. I love tattoos and the stories behind them. Remarkable quote: “Curls run the world”. As a style lover, I would say that clothing is a language all of its own. For me, it is a chance to stand out in the crowd and be a unique example.
If given the chance, who would you like to work with?
Zuhair Murad, without giving a second thought. He is the master of couture and his designs are one-of-a-kind.
Instagram or Pinterest
Instagram. My favorite social network, definitely. It’s my source for the latest fashion or make up trends and a generator for my ideas. You can follow my personal account @_anagaber and see my everyday life through pictures and videos.
Every place I’ve been to. Apart from my home, I can say that I fall in love with all the places I visit, I find beauty in the tiniest thing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dlh-dzB2U4Ys and capture them in my heart as big and important.
You got a regular human and then you got Rihanna. She is the purity and the power of the fashion industry, taking things in her own hands. Iconic, unique and recognizable. The moment you think something is ugly, she decides it’s not.
Current music obsession
Kendrick Lamar ft. Rihanna — Loyalty
I’m not the type of person who is inclined on a specific music genre. My playlist depends on what I like at the moment, on my mood or the occasion.
Things you can’t live without
Coffee, coffee, coffee. Especially the one in the morning, at home, in peace. Another thing is my phone, which I can’t imagine my life without. And so many other things that I can’t set aside but are important to me.
Why do you like Bastet Noir?
Part of my respect for Bastet Noir comes from the fact that it is founded from this specific, creative lady. She recognizes and captures the very essence of every new piece of clothing that comes out of her hands. Despite being fairly new on the market, Bastet Noir stands alone as a great online fashion site for custom made dresses, increasingly attracting the eyes of many women. If you ask me, the designs are a ‘must-have’.
There are these women in the world whose confidence and strength is truly inspiring. They motivate us, empower us and teach us to become the best version of ourselves. We praise such individuals, because they are a rare breed, unique, different, always challenging the status quo and never stand still. Ana Gaberova is definitely one of these strong, rebellious women and we love her for it. She’s got attitude and sass and that makes her our ideal Bastet Noir gal. Thanks Ana for your awesomness. Keep on rockin’ gal.
We love strong, confident and self reliant women, so if you think you got what it takes, send us an email with your Instagram account and the story you’d like to share and you might just become Bastet Noir’s next cool face.
