Asia Fashion Collection

FEY MINORIYANAGASE (Japan)

Minori Yanagase of Fey Minoriyanagase showed a moving exaggeration of bold colors, a heightened play on prints and incorporation of oversized pieces with elements of layering in a casual and fun tone.

TITAT (Thailand)

Pete Titat Kuantrakul of TITAT showcased a monochrome collection with different textiles and bold elemental designs; elevating looks with a relaxed and cool modern – eastern style.

CAHIERS (South Korea)

Ayoung Kim of CAHIERS showed a variety of beautiful silhouettes from a deconstructed dress, relaxed overcoats, flowy dresses with different textures and fabrics. This collection oozed femininity and edginess all in one.

TSUNG YU CHAN (Taiwan)

Joe Chan of TSUNG YU CHAN showed passions of high-end, street style and modern art through his designs, presenting a full detail of hi-end menswear. Deconstruction of fabrics, structured with Taiwanese traditional techniques to create a modern style.

HYUN JUNG (Parsons : South Korea)

Hyun Kyeong Jung of HYUN JUNG showcased deconstructed white and black ensembles with deliberately torn features. The inspiration behind the collection was a nightmare, a continuous nightmare of falling off from somewhere else.

KENICHI (Japan)

Kenichi Ishida of KENICHI made it clear that Spring is definitely around the corner. Pastels colors; lavender, creams, tans, whites will all be in trend for the coming season. Oversized looks perfect for layering for the very chilly days and transition into later warmth. 

KANON (Japan)

Kanon Hayata of KANON showed an unraveling abundance of color, print, and textures. There was a play on volume and outlines of Jacquard in the collection. A showcase of whimsical frocks truly highlighting art.

What were some of your favorite collections or looks?

Happy New Year everyone! We are already in the last week of January and boy did it go fast! I know I have been M.I.A for the past couple of months but I had felt stuck within myself. I wasn’t feeling very inspired and so I had to just take a break from the blogging. 2018 wasn’t my best year so now it’s time to pull out of this slump I was in and make 2019 my year. Anyways enough about me, let’s get on with the fashion trends of 2019!

Fashion Trends of 2019

PUFF SHOULDERS

Not like it’s anything new, but these shoulders are taking on a rounder shape. Puffy shoulders look best with square and v-necklines. A trend I look forward to trying one day.

SEQUINS

Bright, sparkly and dazzling. Sequins never really go out of style. They’re in the spotlight one day and take a break the next day. Then back up again. They are just always…there. So it’s pretty hard to ignore. 

TAILORED SHORTS

Thank goodness, biker shorts are gone. Can we please bring in a more sensible set of shorts? Let’s give this tailored, knee-length masculine alternative over to the spotlight.

EARTH TONES

Earth tones are back and they aren’t going anywhere, any time soon.  Starting with an array of shades, creams, tans, and khaki. Just remember to stay neutral minded when wearing these tones.

UTILITARIAN

 The utilitarian look isn’t so traditional anymore. If you weren’t a fan of this trend, you may want to give it a try now.  Its safari chic meets modern military. Stare at your shades of khaki because utilitarian never looked this good.

YELLOW FEVER

Colors of lemons, marigolds, and butter were vibrantly lighting up the runways. It’s the choice of color this coming Spring and I think the Sun will feel very proud.

COLORBLOCK

So I heard, color will be all over the place this coming Spring, so you don’t have an excuse to not color-block. And if you do, shame on you. It’s time to bring some mingling colors into your life.

CROCHET

California’s craftwork pretty much speaks for its self, doesn’t it? Easy, breezy and a bit see-through. Crochet was spotted on the runway at Oscar de la Renta and Victoria Beckham.
