Here are some of my favourite pieces which were shown at the Taipei in Style exhibition. Some of these are from Taiwanese brand/designers, while others were from other parts of Asia, including Japan, Hong Kong and Korea. A lot of these designs were really beautiful, full of character, and most definitely eye-catching. See more for pictures!
I had the pleasure of attending a day at Taipei In Style event during November. It was my first fashion event and I was really excited for the day to come. I decided to continue with my monochrome trend from my previous post and I wore a black jumper with faux leather detail on the upper shoulder area, a pair of white skinny jeans, and a pair of black and white plimsolls – accessorized it with a black clutch bag. It was such an amazing day! See below on some of the highlights of the event. 🙂
Went to a wedding over the weekend! It was an opportunity to dress up and eat lots of food :D. I chose a casual look by pairing a baby blue shirt and a pair of chinos and a pair of dark navy/military green with scarlet red sole brogues
Last weekend I met up with friends in Taipei, who I had originally met when I was at university in England. I hadn’t seen them in a while so it was nice to catch up after the four years since we graduated! I had so much fun with them and it felt like I was back at university being carefree and reminiscing about the good old days.
A few days prior to meeting up, I came up with the spontaneous idea of putting an outfit together and asking my friends to take some pictures, to which they agreed. We picked a random street in Taipei after our Italian meal – and so here are the photos that I picked out:
For the Alexander Wang’s show, sportswear was a huge inspiration for the season – skin turtleneck tops, netted and meshes fabrics, as well as bomber jackets were all seen on the runway. The colours and prints on the tops, jackets and dresses were bold and creative, which gave the outfits a strong statement finish.
Had a nice long weekend spending the Mid-Autumn festival with my family here in Taiwan which was really nice and relaxing. Let’s just say I ate a bit too much…. 😛
Another show that I really enjoyed for the SS2015 season was Jason Wu (go Taiwanese designers!). I’ve always watched and enjoyed his designs season after season – his clothes are forever wearable and accessible by all types of women, especially those who seek to express a strong look, and this season was no different. The clothes looked effortless yet emitted power – perfect for those days in the office when you just want to quickly throw some clothes on as you’ve overslept, yet still want to look like you mean business.
I particularly loved the use of colours in this season; the army green, navy and white created a collection that in my opinion represented a simplistic and powerful look, expressed through minimalist styles.
