Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: J KOO

SFW S/S 2015: J KOO

You know it’s a good show when you start anticipating the next look. Quite simply, what sets a good collection apart from those that are average is one that which presents something new in every single look yet mindfully follows the theme by placing main elements of the collection in each look.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2015: Hervé Léger

NYFW S/S 2015: Herve Ledger

The question is, just how far we can go with the bandage dresses.. Kudos to the design team at Max Azria for their relentless attempts and success at creating seemingly endless collections of body-con dresses season after season, which this time around received a bit of “power” with inspiration coming all the way from Japan. It’s…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: KIOK

SFW S/S 2015: KIOK

It’s infinitely great when the designer knows what she’s good at, and even better when she doesn’t hesitate to focus on the exact stuff that made her who she is.

Such tend to be ones that are designed by people who are more business-minded than art or design-driven. Despite having reached the mega popular…

New York Fashion Week Spring 2015: Vivienne Tam

NYFW S/S 2015: Vivienne Tam

It’s always fascinating to meet a person with a different background (which would basically be just about everyone), especially one exposed to multiple cultures from a young age. Not only is there a lot to learn, but they tend to bring a fresh perspective to otherwise everyday things. New York based, China-born and Hong Kong trained…
