The Sweetest Things (a post about nothing in particular)

Today is the most lovely day. It feels for the first time like I am really at college-the leaves are turning and the sun is shining and the air is chilly. Went to lunch with a classmate today and had a great conversation with a professor.

Its raining in Walla Walla :D
While keeping up with the recently adjourned 2009 New York Fashion Week, I was enthralled by how many asian designers are finding their place among the world of high fashion. Who says us asians are just good at math and making cars?!!!!!!
Here are a few of my favorite boundary-pushers:

Phillip Lim

This Chinese American, creator of 3.1 Phillip Lim, exploded onto the fashion scene in 2004. He has been making waves, known for his subdued color palates and easy-wearing designs.
His fashion week collection, soooooo lovely and luxurious
So short! Born in Thailand, Thakoon is known for his intensely feminine designs.
Soooo lovely!
Michelle Obama LOVES Thakoon!
Jason Wu
This young taiwanese american designer got his start making doll clothes, and later interned with Narcisco Rodriguez. His 2006 debut collection launched him to immediate fame. No fair!
This seasons collection was especially colorful. Love the silhouettes.

He designed her INAUGURAL BALL-GOWN. This guy is a bro.

Vera Wang
Yeah yeah, I had to stick her in here. This lovely, talented Chinese American former figure skater is THE QUEEN of wedding dresses. Nuff said.
Derek Lam
My personal favorite, Derek Lam is Chinese American from New York City. Former Vice President of Design for none other than Michael Kors, he launched his own line in 2003. His use of raw silk and linen paired with his clean lines and simple designs are AMAZZINGGG
Rockin Fashion Week
My favorite dress by him, made with a SINGLE sheet of raw silk, uncut. The best toga ever.

Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang is Chinese American from San Francisco, who launched his first collection in 2007. In just two short years he has become a figurehead of the fashion community, and is acclaimed for his tailoring skills as well as his masculine touches.
Plus, how can you not love this guy?!
Old-school Football inspired Fashion Week Collection

So there you have it!
Hope you all missed me as much as I missed you!
stay classy
and remember to think of pineapples when you are sad

kissies galore
