This may be my last ever event with Culture Piece Magazine, but it was one for the books. I had such a great time at Can Can Wonderland for Culture Piece Magazine's 1st Anniversary fashion show. I am so honored that they asked me to present my designs! After seeing the amazing, colorful land of Can Can Wonderland through pictures on their website, I knew exactly what I had to do: K-Pop! Since the beginning of my Freshmen year of high school, I have been, not obsessed, but very into K-Pop. It helps that I spend most of my time on YouTube, so I was able to get a feel of the fashion and vibes of the K-Pop performers. So far, my favorite group is Big Bang thanks to my great friend from high school getting me into them. :)
Each design was created to showcase color and excitement that is often shown through K-Pop. Though it is not literal, it is where I found my main inspiration.
Without further ado, here are my six designs from “SODA” featuring three extra designs from my NYFW collection “BONBONS” (All pictures were taken by the amazing Pierre Ware):
Culture Piece Magazine never fails to put out amazing work! The makeup artist and hair stylist did such an amazing job, I couldn’t stop staring at how beautiful the work was and how well it went with my designs. The Fashion Show was well organized and was topped with performers from the City who also stole the show! I presented my collection with two other designers who created work that was so different from mine yet everything still flowed so nicely with each other. Like it was meant to be! Every single model was sweet and knew how to rock the runway! This was one of the most fun fashion show I’ve ever been to and definitely one I will never forget! Now off to college!
