#WRITESTYLE Spotlight: Peter Papapetrou

Monica Smiley

 Little fun fact for you all, when I was a fresh-faced 19 yr-old fashion student, I got the internship of a lifetime with Peter Papapetrou on the set of one of his past tv shows. It was short-lived (my internship I mean- the show was a big success!) but the impression he left on me would last forever. Apart from being THE nicest guy, Peter is a master at what he does. You probably know and love him as an on-air style expert for shows like "The Marilyn Denis Show," but did you also know that he's a trained fashion designer, a talented illustrator, and a world-renowned fashion stylist?! 

  So how does he balance it all and still make it all look so effortless and cool? Peter recently dished out some note-worthy advice, including a glimpse into his personal wardrobe and how he uses a good notebook to stay on top of his busy schedule. I think Peter is one of the best (and incredibly kind-hearted) in this business, but don't take my word for it, find out for yourself by following his amazing work and life on instagram and twitter!

   

 WHAT IS THE BEST STYLE ADVICE YOU'VE EVER GIVEN/RECEIVED?

PP:  "Fashion is for everyone style is for those who know who they are."

 

IF WE COULD PEEK INTO YOUR CLOSET, WHAT WOULD WE FIND?

PP: Modern classic staples, lots of runners and sunglasses.  Everything is hung on white wooden hangers.

 

WHAT IS THE NUMBER ONE STYLE ESSENTIAL YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT?

PP: Confidence... if you mean fashion item..It would be a great pair of shades.

 

WHERE CAN WE COMMONLY FIND YOU TAKING NOTES?

PP: During meetings, fittings, research and brainstorming.  There's something to be said about writing things down. 

 

IF WE COULD PEEK INSIDE YOUR NOTEBOOK, WHAT WOULD WE FIND?

PP: Lots of quick illustrations, and if someone could send me a translator I'd be able to read what I wrote.  I wish I could write as fast as my mind thinks.

 

HOW IMPORTANT IS HAVING A GOOD NOTEBOOK IN YOUR LIFE/JOB?

PP: It's invaluable. I'm a visual person so I remember things better if I write them down. 

 

I don't know about you but as soon as "Translator for Peter Papapetrou" pops up on linkedin, I'm so applying for that job! Big thanks to Peter for his time and continued support. We think his confident style is the perfect match to our "Jotter in Chic" Gold notebook. Shop it here!
