To my 9 year old self: your childhood hobby is now your career
Picture this, my Asian dad who wanted his first born to be a doctor reluctantly handing over my first sewing machine. In that moment, he probably realized that the doctor dream should be passed on to my little sister because there was no denying my love for fashion design.
She could easily have been a manifestation of the goddess so WEARING that dress as she glided with her teen son close by across the grocery store parking lot.
My Creative Refuge
Since I was a kid, I wanted to be a fashion designer. My Mom always says I had my own mind about clothes even before I could speak. When I was a toddler, my Mom and I were passing by a clothing shop and I kept reaching towards the window at this peach velour outfit. She took me into the shop and I was almost possessed by this outfit. She tried to get me to like the navy version instead but I was sure I wanted the peach. Throughout my childhood and teenage years I dreamed of becoming a fashion designer in a big city and having my own brand. After years of dreaming, I ended up getting into Parsons in New York City to study Fashion Design. I was enamoured with the fashion world and New York. While I was there I did countless internships for brands and magazines, school was fun and creative but by the end of my four years I felt a little bit burned out. I decided to move to London to try something new.

Cottagecore: Reviving that Sweet 70s Nostalgia
Dressing for Happiness If the pandemic has taught me anything about fashion, it’s that we’re constantly chasing that sweet nostalgia of old trends. This past year, I’ve definitely noticed a whirlwind of fads reammerge into mainstream fashion, ranging from rad 70s tie dye, to adorable 90s butterfly hair-clips. And while the revival of past trends is by no means new, I feel like our current craving for nostalgia has been amplified in our desire to reminisce about simpler, pre-pandemic times. People are at home, they're bored and stressed, and they're experimenting with fashion as a way to embrace nostalgia and have some good, simple fun.

It’s the dusty sweet scent of childhood. Of dolls and toys left on shelves in the attic and grass stained knees. Laughing until you fart and spinning until you fall down...down...and suddenly you’re flying high in the sky.
Men's Fashion Peaked in the '80s and Here is Why
Okay, so maybe the hairstyles were a bit much and the scent of perm solution caused a significant contribution to our o-zone layer, however, I truly think men's fashion peaked in the '80s.
An ode to the baggy clothing of the 90's.
Baggy clothing has been littered through many a decade from the 70's to modern day, but none capitalised on their appeal like the nineties. From TV shows like 'Friends' and 'Buffy the vampire slayer' to bands like 'Sonic Youth' and 'Nirvana', oversized and baggy clothing was everywhere you looked.

How Clothes Help To Define You
I have never been what you may call a dedicated follower of fashion or fashion victim as they call it these days. However, I do like to go out looking reasonably smart and presentable even if it's in a casual way. And whilst I haven't got an extensive wardrobe, the rack is sufficiently full to change my clothes several times a day if I so desired. And in amongst all that splendid apparel is one item I have something of a soft spot for, and it is not that swamp at the bottom of the garden.
Deco & Disco: Styling a Counterculture
As the decade turned and the pandemic hit many months ago, there was a not-so-comfy kind of accuracy in the links between our current moment and the 20’s of the preceding century. But there were also shiny glimpses of inspiration. Looking for said glimpses, I found myself pretty geeked on Art Deco influences that have seemed so relevant to contemporary design trends. Perhaps it is the illusive escapism that presented itself with unique patterns, curved details, and emphasis on decoration. And it wasn’t just me-- something in the atmosphere charmed it up to a trend. Similarly,I felt there was something so attractive about the disco balls hanging in plant and vintage stores around New York City. That one accessory can sort those locations into the ‘cool’ file in my head almost automatically. With every sparkling eyeshadow and velvet sofa decoration, the American movements of the 1920s and 1970s became key in aestheticizing young people’s creative and stylistic impulses. And in my opinion, such keys should never be underestimated in the pursuit to understand the social politics of a given time and place.
Freedom In Fashion
Fashion is freedom for the painting of life that I dare to make. It has allowed a freedom of expression I have never felt before in my life. I am enthralled by the outfits I can create when only caring about how I feel. There is a great power we all can grasp if we dare to express ourselves in our attire.
