Concrete Jungle

The greatest thing I’ve gained from Parsons are the great friends I've made. I love having friends that have common interest as me, Remiel Loh is one of them. He is truly the most kind, loyal, talented, and patient friend anyone can have. It doesn't hurt that he gives me a lot clothes for free too! Honestly, I think that's why I like him sooo much! hahah jk!
This post is dedicated to him... 

Remiel is not only a great designer, but he can draw like Michelangelo. 
His depiction of "Concrete Jungle."

The back can be the front, the front can be the back.

Remiel likes to make things that drape. That's his thang!

Can't Be Missed

I made a skirt that effortlessy has a touch of romance, femininity and flirty appeal. It's fun to wear clothes that has a soft yet strong impact, it's easy on the eyes and aesthetically pleasing. Wear something that makes a statement, life is too short to blend w. others.

I made this skirt out of silk twill


yummy shoes

Loosely Fitted

Clothes are most beautiful when it looks relaxed and weightless. Softly tailored and slightly slouched, fashion is all about ease. Imagine walking down the street as the wind blows against your clothes~ breathtaking! This is why I can't wait till it's spring/summer.

pants made out of 4 ply silk and top made out of georgette

wide legged pants (originally, i made these pants as a set for this top- it's all about tonal looks!)

When I draped this top I wanted the back to have movement. The back is wider than the front. 

Is it me or does it look like I'm wearing a wig?

What a girl wants....

is something monumental in her closet, a grand item no one has but you. You want to put it on a platform and just stare at it as if you've just won this one-of-kind piece from an auction! 

I don't know what gave me the idea to shred hundreds of strips of silk organza but I did. Call me crazy but I was excited to do this project. I went to C&J (my favorite fabric store) and bought 6 different colors of silk organza, ranging from 5-15 yards each.
key item: coat vest, made by ME :)))

some rolls of organza I have left over

To make the coat vest in the back....
first, I had to rip strips of organza. Took me days to just rip.

Second, I had to cut and shred. (My dad helped a lot with shredding. I love him sooo much! He would do anything for me. Ask and I shall receive...haha)

 Third, pleated each strip after shredding to give it more volume.

  Lastly, sewed all the finished strips onto the base of my coat vest. Don't you love the ombre? 
I loooveeee it!

Lets get it straight- my socks are navy blue, not black ;))

Added a side seam pocket so I can put my hands in there and look cool!

 A lil somethin' I knitted to complete my outfit....
A simple beanie <3

 I feel most relaxed and calm when I'm in a creative state of mind. I'm not this crazy person everyone knows me as. I'm so much more than that. I hope one day all will see.......
