INDY, 21, AND CELIA, 20, FROM NETHERLANDS
HOW DO YOU GUYS CHOOSE WHAT CLOTHES TO TAKE ON HOLIDAY?
Indy: I’m relaxed about what I take. I’m easy going and just want to be comfortable.
Celia: I want to look good! I want to be comfortable as well but looking fashionable is important. I try to tell Indy what to wear – sometimes I get my way but not always!
DO YOU PACK TOGETHER?
Indy: I choose with Celia’s help! She does the packing into the bag.
Celia: I like to make sure everything is packed well and tidy! I don’t want creases and I want to make sure I have everything we need.
HOW IS THE FASHION SCENE IN THE NETHERLANDS?
Celia: People always try to dress well at home. We have our own style and a lot of great designers and labels from around Europe to choose from. Here on holiday it’s a bit more relaxed.
Indy: I think we are one of the leading countries in Europe for fashion. You can choose any style you want. In Amsterdam there’s so many good shops and such a mix of nationalities that you see many different styles.
DO YOU LIKE TO DRESS UP WHEN YOU GO OUT ON HOLIDAY?
Celia: Of course! It’s always nice to put on a nice dress and make-up and have fun night out. When you look good going out you always feel good as well – and that’s what holidays are about!
Indy: I don’t worry about it as much as Celia, but yeah, sometimes it’s good to put in some effort. Maybe brush my hair haha!
ANY HOLIDAY FASHION DISASTERS?
Celia: Yes here! I did some washing at the hotel and had all my clothes and bikinis turn grey and brown! I had to buy new clothes and throw out the ruined ones. I wasn’t happy but at least there’s some good shops here in Chersonissos.
