COLLABORATION NATION

Because 1+1 = 2?

Tight budget? This is the fashionable way out without THE price.

SCARLET ALERT

 

Just an idea of what to wear for the Lunar New Year.

 

Even though I’m not celebrating (surprise, surprise)… I’m gonna wear something red or maybe scarlet (more bright reddish orange) tomorrow, just because that particular color supposed to symbolize prosperity, fortune and luck.

Some people (read: me) love the color but terrified of pulling it off. No worries, if you’re not ready for a daring red outfit, pick a pop of red, like shoes, clutch or ring which will brighten up your look instantly.

 

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR NEXT FEBRUARY? 

Me? I’m waiting for another fashion collaboration.

It’s Prabal Gurung + Target. Below US$200, complete with accessories like bags, minaudieres, shoes, cuffs and necklaces, I am more than excited. Another wallet friendly fashion collaboration is always interesting, and I bet these fun and flirty collection will sold out in a day, when they launched (in Target of course) on February 10, 2013.

What can you expect from the 80+ collection? His signature digital floral prints, for sure. While I  personally love the pointy printed flats and the minaudiere, check out my other favorite looks from the collection. 

STILL THERE IN 2013

Will the world still be there in 2013? Another calendar finish?

One thing for sure in the fashion world, prints will still exist in 2013…on pants. So printed pants lovers, indulge.

Check out the Pre-Fall 2013 collection above, from digital prints at 3.1 Phillip Lim, ethnic prints at Tory Burch to houndstooth prints at Carolina Herrera. 

ASIAN AMERICAN DOMINATION

Prabal Gurung, born in Singapore, Jason Wu born in Taiwan, Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim & Derek Lam born in the US from Chinese parents & Thakoon Panichgul born in Thailand. Asian’s heritage with American’s lifestyle. With so many inspiring Asian American designers, no wonder NY Times once reported that roughly 70% of international students newly enrolled at Parsons the New School for Design came from Asia. So did Fashion Institute of Technology whose 23% of the nearly students enrolled are either Asian or Asian-American.
