Progect Runway Winner Anya Ayoung Chee

So congratulations are in order for the very talented Anya Ayoung Chee, a fellow Trinidadian who has won the Progect Runway Season 9. She has done our country proud. Bold prints, easy going, flowy and sexy silhouettes walked the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion week reflecting the inspiration of our beloved country. Cheers to her and I wish her all the best.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week,Tokyo

Clever, hip, simple, edgy, oragami are words that come to mind when I viewed the Tokyo fashion week. It was well worth the wait. I loved it. You could see the heavy influence of culture in silhouettes and styling. I of course had my favourites highlighted in yellow. There was barely a collection I didn't like. It was a lot more approachable than I thought it would be. Give me money and I'll definitely go shopping.

Is Fashion Really Important?

It's never a dull day in the fashion world, where new ideas are being conjured up to reinstate what will be our next must have item we'll be bombarded with by various forms of media. As everything has been done before but must be reinterpreted for it be a coveted...right?

 Of course there will be the people who claim that fashion does not state who they are and what they contribute to the world but clearly they haven't experienced the true power of a well put together ensemble. A simple wardrobe change can boost confidence, state to your boss that you're ready for more responsibilities, it states your rank or lack there of, your profession, your hobbies, if you should be taken seriously or as a joke, who you want to portray yourself as and the list goes on. Fashion is everything that clothes, without it well... we'd be Adam and Eve (if you know what I mean). If you've never thought about it before , think about it now, it doesn't matter how cheap or expensive; everything you wear was designed by someone, may not have always been carefully thought out but yes it was designed none the less. So I think that fashion shouldn't be brushed off as a mediocre entity that the frivolous and rich indulge in to pass time but an empire that helps you to walk outdoors, keeps you warm and well you get the picture.

It's a catty business but what business doesn't bulldoze to get to the top.
