Thakoonbuilt his now thriving fashion business with the ideology of feminine designs brought to life with simple lines crafted through deceptively complex construction; pretty much like a peony - with pieces that "sort of open up like that." And we did witness this up close during Singapore Fashion Week.
Impressed does not even begin to cover what I felt seeing their work given the level of ability these up and coming stars have shared on the runway. The level of technicality and ideas they had were on par dare I say with the world stage and that in itself is a rare feat!
Fashion week being a fledgling in Singapore was a perfect opportunity to showcase collections from upcoming stars in the fashion industry. And I have to say, with an industry saturated with talent there's no shortage. In comes Australian designer Dion LeeandDzojchenfrom Singaporean designer Chelsea Scott-Blackball.
I fell in love with fashion all over again and gained a bigger appreciation of American design. Over and above that, today the experience wasn't just an idea for me - it became a reality. A reality I won't soon forget.
And when I say hottie - I mean both him and his collections (lol!). Dion will be showcasing his Fall-Winter 2015 collection as well - a line of evocative, cutting-edge and innovative womenswear that brings to life athletic inspiration from elements of Australian lifestyle.
Pardon the lack of posts the past few days but for those of you who follow my relatively daily antics on Instagram, I've had a whirlwind of a weekend (we'll leave that for another post). As such, you'll have to oblige me with an obligatory post - albeit one that will force you to shop till you drop!
It's but human nature to get hooked on something and listen to it non-stop. I personally have had those few choice songs that I'll have on loop on my iPod to the point that I would be playing it for months (yes months!) till it hits beyond 5000 plays. Insanity? Maybe. Addiction - hell yes!
