This is the second week for the reality/competition in fashion design show, called “The Fashion Show”, on Bravo channel. This show is the TV show that is replacing the famous Project Runway. The hosts for the show are Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland (One of the Destiny Child member). The production and concept are different from the Project Runway.
I had to admit that at first I’m not sure I will like the show (maybe because I have watched the PR almost every season). So, I didn’t expect much about the show. It has been on air for two weeks now. So far, I think Isaac and Kelly did pretty decent hosting job. The contestants came from various industrial business and they all have different expertise. It’s going to be very interesting and entertaining!
Now, cooperating origami techniques into fashion clothes is the newest, hottest trend!! That’s what I heard from the Fashion Police show on E! channel.
In the Chanel’s Spring 2009 show, origami paper has been used for decorating the runway and used as accessories on models.
Absolutely stunning, isn’t it??? What a CLASSIC!
Fall season is coming…. I would say fall season is one of my favorite season because of cooling down weather, decreasing amount of rain, etc. And… you can start to wear layers with a blazer, a jacket, a cardigan, and a sweater. But especially this fall, you will see a lot of vests in men and women. Vests either with or without buttons are hot! I never own one before. Normally, I like casual or business casual, very laid-back style. But this fall, I would like to dress grown-up, preppy style. So, I definitely will get some vests. I have a lot of jackets and blazers. I just love to have them even though Mobile is not cold area, rather hot and humid HA HA HA! I know.. I’m crazy… LOL
In this fall 2008 fashion, you will see a lot straight-leg pants or skinny jeans. In my opinion, three colors which never go wrong with the fall season are white, black, and gray. These colors will make you look sophisticated. So…come on… try to dress “preppy”!! It’s fun!!
So, for those guys who don’t have vest, it’s time for you to invest, own, and dress one! I think vests will make you look sharp, smart, and classic. It could be worn with cool graphic t-shirts, dress shirts, and jeans. How cool is that! I didn’t make up this sense of fashion. It’s really a trend! Lately, I have seen a lot of people wearing this kind of style. So… read this article or read how you can dress up with vest on A|X website
The other day Kris, my long-time friend, asked me if I’d ever heard about “Toy Watch.” Nope, I had no idea what it was. Kris just came back to the US from visiting his family and friends in Bangkok. He said Toy Watch is getting more popular. It was so expensive though it was made of plastic. He added that the Central Department stores have been selling Toy Watch for more than 10K Bahts. He saw these watches being sold in the US at the high-end department stores ranging between 150-300 dollars. At that moment, I felt like with that price per se, they shouldn’t have called it as “Toy” watch. Nevertheless, I love watches, so I can’t help myself but looking for more information about the Toy Watch.
Toy Watch or ToyWatch is first introduced in the Fall 2006 by an Italian designer, Marco Mavilla, under the concept of luxurious looking watches with affordable price. Later, ToyWatch has been brought to the US by Randy Gordon, fine-watch collector.
When I saw those watches, I thought like Rolex/Tag Heuer meet Swatch/Casio. Ha Ha Ha… Do you agree? A lot of ToyWatch’s collections are made of Acrylic (another word of PLASTIC) – the cheapest, but some are made of Plasteramic (Plastic + Ceramic) – more expensive, and Ceramic – the most expensive.
It becomes more popular in Hollywood as well. Madonna, Oprah, Ellen, and other celebrities own one or more!
Do I like any of them? — YES…I think some of them has cool looking, but it’s not like I have to have it NOW.
Am I going to buy one? — No.. for now… hahaha.. Maybe I’ll buy it later if it gets any cheaper, i.e. SALE!
