UH HUH YEAAH

What qualifies Kayne and Kim to get a Vouge cover? Not only is Kim's fashion sense atrocious, but she has no class. It all comes down to consumerism in American culture. More people will buy a magazine with a reality star on the cover than the likes of a fashion model in a more artsy . Can you see them on the cover of French or Italian Vouge?? Fat chance. It's not only the fact that Kim and Kanye are on the cover of Vouge its the way they are portrayed. Nothing is artsy or creative about the cover.  It looks as if the cover shoot was done at JC Penny with a netrual backdrop all thats missing is the Xmas reindeer. Say cheese!!!! The cover is very lifestyle, sans couture, sans color, sans much of anything with substance, and nothing says lack of substance like a reality star. Thoughts???

The Bears are Back in K-Town...

I love freaking Korean fashion ever since I bribed my Koren friend to translate the shopping cart of http://www.dahong.co.kr which is this sick online clothing store based in Seoul. When I saw Concept Korea my heart stopped.  I love the insane colors, crazy shapes, and oversized shoulder pads. The Korean government basically had a project runway of the best designers in the country minus the drama, long drawn out TV episodes, and never ending commercials. The winners of are sooo fly, their pieces exhibit elements of Hip Hop, Classicism and and ounce of harajuku girl all put  together coherently in one show.  Congrats to the designers: Kathleen Kye ('KYE'), Kim Seoryong ('Kimseoryong homme'), and Kim Hongbum ('CRES. E DIM.') in the 'Pre-concept Korea' category; and Ko Tae Yong ('beyond closet'), Park Youn Soo ('BIG PARK'), Lee Suk Tae ('KAAL E.SUKTAE'), and Choi Bo Ko ('CHOIBOKO')

Lace, Leather, and Lenovich

From Moscow with love....Katya Leonovich brought new meaning to leather and lace with bright colors and body contouring silhouettes. Her patterns were inspired from a group of her own paintings which explains the amazing eccentric designs. Alot of what she put together shows elements taught by Saga Furs where she previously studied. Her clothes exhibit alot of the same thought in regards to color, silhouettes, and different schools of fashion. I studied with Saga Furs when I worked at Birger Christensen in High School and College. Her work exhibits what they like which is originality and viability. My favorite characteristics are how lacy and sensual some of the garments were, the luminosity is spectacular, and the pieces show just enough skin.  Bravo comrade!
