So, who did I see?I was almost late for the Y&M Yang Sung Sook show because of the darn foot being sprained an hour beforehand. I arrived limping and much too late for a better seat than the one I got so this is the reason for all the dodgy pics above because my camera stinks (my apologies). The guest card was wonderfully hooked around the neck of a bottle of H2O explaining the theme of the collection, materials used, inspiration ecetera (would've liked to have shown you but camera is a battery-eating monster). For the moment make do with this.The important bits are in English. The reason why I picked this particular show was actually quite simple. The reason being because of time restrictions, exams and the fact that I was unaware of many of the designers shown (let's face it, they're not THAT well known- it's not Milan here people). I myself was aware of only a handful of local designers. So I picked this particular one because the words: WOOL, CASHMERE and GRADATION stood out to me in her materials description (checked it out on the web beforehand). And I'm glad I did. I LOVED the gradation she used on her skirts, the puffiness of her coats, the folding on the necklines and the backline were just as interesting as the front (the back is VERY important to moi). I wanted all her accessories- the clutch bags and shoe textures were fabulous. The show also reminded me yet again of how important the models are in presenting the clothes and the image of the brand. There was a certain Caucasian model who walked almost feet first at a 70 degree angle. Maybe it's that particular model's "walk" but it didn't work for me as a viewer watching that model work the clothes (I was more distracted by herself). Again sorry for the pictures, I leave you with some pics of the collection taken by the official press who have much better photo graphical talents than me and BETTER SEATS! (I'll update part 2 soon)

But I did go- I went limping in pain with everyone staring at me as I passed by. I swear, the craziest things I do for fashion. If my mum found out she would so give me a telling off! I categorize my condition as obsession or pure madness. (Still glad I went. *wincing*. Can't write any more for today)

p.s I recently purchased tickets to see a fashion show for the Fall '08 Seoul Collection. I love the fact that this is partly open to the public! After weighing down my choices, 'Y&M Yang Sung Sook' is what I'll be seeing on the runway tomorrow at 5. Can't wait!

Ranting over, now I really have to get back to study (only one exam done and over). Oooo I tried to get tickets for Lie Sang Bong's Fall '08 show that's showing at the Seoul Collection this week but they were all sold out like hotcakes. I got tickets for another show though, will tell you about it tomorrow....ta-ra

Below are pictures from his latest Spring/Summer 08’ collection. We all know how florals are big nowadays but I believe that he's presented flowers in a whole new dimension. He is a current fixture on the runways in

and I love Alexander Wang! How much did I enjoy the grungyness of his Fall 08' collection...A LOT!!!
Uniqlo + Alexander Wang = Pure ecstacy
Yes, if you still haven't caught on, he will be designing a capsule collection for the one and only! Apparently the collection will be a tiny 8-piecer and sold ONLY during May of this year with prices between $29-$79 dollars! How fabulous is that?!!! This is where I can't squeal without you...it's only happening in the US.
Oh, you lucky Americans...give Target Australia some slack, eh? :P
EDIT: Wonderful news! Apparently it will be available in the UK too!
