New York Fashion Week Spring 2015: OUDIFU

NYFW S/S 2015: OUDIFU

Unfortunately, only info I have on this brand is that it’s a Shanghai-based ready-to-wear luxury brand that is considered one of China’s leading brands despite designer Li having never been to fashion school. As for its debut collection at New York Fashion Week, inspiration came from an ancient Chinese belief that man is an integral part of nature.

It all sounds good. And it’s fine even if it doesn’t, as long as the collection is great, because after all, what counts in a fashion show is the result itself.

Which I’m not sure was the case here, sadly. This was one of the most memorable shows this season, as being one of the most frustrating and bland. Sorry, I say it like it is, and I can’t help it.

I’m open to discovering new designers and support global expansions of Asian brands, but only when the stuff is good, obviously. and when I say ‘good’, I’m not referring to the material or tailoring skill but it should at least look like the designer put in effort and should have some artistic value: Does it offer something new? Does it provide inspiration? Does it make you want to pay money for it?

Otherwise, what is the point of traveling all the way to NY and shelling out tens of thousands bucks? Well, maybe that’s a choice, but why invite people? Thanks, but no thanks.

Please. Somebody bring me my Ray-bans because I just can’t handle that top. It’s the ugliest top I’ve seen including the ones hanging on the sale rack at Forever21 for $3. Plus, her belly. They could’ve at least put it on someone with a nicer abs.

Yeah, he definitely didn’t go to fashion school (that which he’s proud of, oddly.). I didn’t either, and that’s why I don’t design. Well, at least I tried and got accepted, I just chose not to go. Maybe I should start designing. Hmm

I understand patches are in but these jeans.. are probably a better fit for Chinese market. Sorry.

Built-in A/C. So trendy.

Am I the only one that thought these prints were female ghosts with long hair? What is that Japanese horror movie with this crazy pale woman hanging on the ceiling or a TV or something? OMG. but apparently, these are just elephant noses. Hew.

Just trying really hard keep my eyes open. That’s all.

So this is it. The only thing I remember from this show: the elephants! but with eyes!

Because, you know, we just can’t get enough of elephants.

NYFW S/S 2015: OUDIFU NYFW S/S 2015: OUDIFU

Yeah, give it to me!

So tell me, how is she supposed to eat with her arm tied like that?

NYFW S/S 2015: OUDIFU

But I just want to open that zipper all the way down… jk. bad joke.

Elephants are so awesome they are now on bags too.

NYFW S/S 2015: OUDIFU

I should totally try that with my maxi dress. Such an effortlessly ugly way to wear it.

I have a really huge problem with this top. Someone please tell me, is it a mermaid, an elephant, geisha, or some kind of Yoga goddess that I’m supposed to be familiar with? Or is it a fish? I’m so disturbed.
