Basic Essentials

Jason Niu is a dear friend of mine who is a firm believer that most basic garments can be elevated to become more desirable fashion items.  His customer would be someone who likes to wear simple clothes, but has fun with styling. You can give her something basic and she will make it look like she is going to funkytown! I love wearing Jason's designs because I always feel unique and stylish!

Jason took one of the staples of seventies casual, the athletic ringer tee, and rendered it in a fragile Chantilly lace. It is accented with solid jersey neck and sleeve trims, but it is hand scalloped and trimmed at the hem to show off it's delicateness.

I got this sports bra in Korea when I was in 5th grade. Fashion always repeats itself!
