The Ultimate Guide To Getting Dressed With Thalea Michos-Vellis
“Hello COH, My name is Thalea! I am a fashion stylist and fashion collector. I am a third generation Australian-Greek living in Melbourne’s North with two cats and a collection of archival fashion magazines.
“I am 100% influenced by my surroundings. During my (very) formative years—that time just after high school and before you realise you are an adult—I spent a bit of time going back-and-forth from Tokyo to Melbourne. I experimented with my style then and was finally able to have access to so much fun fashion, and pieces that I had only ever seen on the internet. I think this accompanied with the thrift shopping I did growing up really helped me work out my own way to assemble an outfit, as I was never one to buy a full look from the same current collection.
“Not as many people get dressed up here in Melbourne. I feel that because of how casual day-to-day style is here, I have incorporated lots of pattern and colour to basic silhouettes—like a fun bag or a printed shirt. We also have such a nice creative community in Melbourne, as well some awesome designers like Poms Eyewear and Maroske Peech!”
