I have a confession to make. I’ve neglected fashion for a little while. Since I’ve been pregnant and my mid-section decided to go AWOL, I’ve had to put fashion on the backburner. When I say fashion, I’m talking about those die-hard trends, the runway looks that ban any pregnant person from even contemplating about: you know, the midriff-baring, skin-showing, thigh-gracing and waist-hugging types. Yes “every day is worth dressing up for, especially when one’s pregnant”, but nowadays I only have one mission. It’s pretty simple: “To Fit“. Into anything.
Thankfully though, our recent babymoon to New York exposed me to a myriad of incredible street styles (which I’m yet to share with you, I promise they will be featured in the coming weeks!) and the latest runway looks (those too), that the dimming flame I had for fashion has become reignited. Now I’m literally counting down the days until I can prance around in crop tops and sheer pieces. Sounds like an impossibility doesn’t it? But I say “Bring it on!”
blame it on have Brandon Sun’s Spring Summer 13/14 show to thank for. A genius Parsons graduate who has trained with Calvin Klein, worked with some of America’s greatest designer houses including J.Mendel and Oscar de la Renta, Brandon’s sophisticated shapes and tailoring is credit to his ability to translate his visions into modern and wearable garments. Seeing the models clad in his clean, strong and sophisticated pieces kind of ‘jump-started’ my love for fashion again.
The light weight fabrics, in delicious apricot and pistachio hues, meticulously tailored, complete with “plates” (the designer was inspired by Japanese female Samurais, hear more about them in the interview video below) was so modern and elegant I wanted to bring the entire collection home with me. But customs and my credit card would not allow it.
Thanks Brandon for getting me excited about fashion again and for allowing me to interview you after the show. Enjoy the video lovelies!
