Happy Chinese New Year!

…a perfect occasion to test out my new Chinese cups and bowls, brought back from my dad’s recent trip to Singapore. I just love the subtle, muted tones and the organic, slightly imperfect shapes.

I wanted to use this Chinese celebration day to show-case some Chinese fashion but my knowledge of China-based fashion designers is minimal (will do some more research in this one) and it is New York fashion week after all, so how about a little Jason Wu? Wu is Taiwan-born so technically he fits into the Chinese theme and his latest collection is so lovely it would be rude not to mention it. It may not be intentional but this red and gold dress from his recent New York a/w 2010 show definitely has some Chinese influences.

Any bets on how long it will be before we see the elegant Michelle Obama in this one?

  1. I really like the red and gold, actually. Will probably try to sew a copycat…
