WINTER WHITE

I honestly could not see myself in any other color besides black this Winter but surprisingly, I am utterly diggin this whole 'white on white' look. This current 'white on white' trend is so clean and fresh and it also signify purity, a sense of innocence. Ironically, I think wearing all white is quite solid and daring haha you would have to be extra careful and cautious not to leave a mark or else it'd be way too obvious. Besides that, I don't mind putting this trend up for a test! Time to make room and welcome some new white pieces into the wardrobe this Winter!

Here are some pictures I have gathered through tumblr and blogs, enjoy! :)

KIMSHU A/W '13

 My current A/W ’13 collection aim towards a conservative and architectural approach, much similar to FINSK which is where I draw my inspirations from time to time. How did my latest collection come about? Well, I like to begin my design process with a basic style for this Autumn/Winter (rather much winter in Melbourne) so I automatically thought, wedges and platforms which also provide women the extra height they need, like myself. I then incorporate my style into the design and work my around it. This season I want to offer women a minimalist range with a slight edge for a bit of appeal. I am a firm believer in ‘less is more’ so I want to be careful with color and material choice, thus why I chose black.
 

Adding a focal point to all my designs is really important as it delivers a signature of
KIMSHU. The main focal point in this collection is the hardware at the beginning and end of each shoe. 
Versatility is also another important factor which reflects on wearability, therefore my collection is designed to be worn for every upcoming autumn and winter. My designs are steered away from what’s on trend; I’d like to fathom the idea that my innovations are fashion-forward.

Once again viewers, I would love to hear your feedback! Thank you for your time :)

Australasian Association Fashion Show '13

I'm so thrilled and honored to be apart of the Melbourne University Aa Fashion Show 2013. It was an amazing night and an unforgettable experience!

Seeing my designs up on the runaway for the very first time was such a joyous moment of my life. I'm so proud of how far I've come and achieved, it's only just the beginning of KIMSHU!

I'm glad to have met and mingle with other designers weeks before the show. It's great having company where we all shared something in common which was translating design in our own individual styles. Congratulations designers, the night truly marked a commencement of whats to come in the future for us all!

I would like to say a BIG thank you to Australasian Association for having me, you guys did an outstanding job! Cheers for an eventful night! :)

ORGASMY

Based on his design concept, Thierry Lasry has executed the definition of perfection when it comes to designing 'futuristic vintage' sunglasses. With all of his sunglasses being enitirely handmade in France, Thierry Lasry use the finest materials to deliver exceptional quality. 
I found it so amusing that he mimicked his first and last name by giving each frame a provocative title, all ending in 'Y'... 'orgasmy', 'porny', 'slutty', 'sexxxy' etc. haha! Thierry Lasry, you are one 'kinky' designer! ;)
I first spotted Rihanna wearing the Thierry Lasry 'Orgasmy' awhile ago, I knew I had to set myself on a hunt for these perfect classic chunky cat-eye sunnies. To my surprise, Melbourne barely stock Thierry Lasry sunglasses at the time. I did come across Lenko boutique that offered his designs but they didn't have the 'Orgasmy' :( The good news is, Thierry Lasry can be found in numerous of stores across Melbourne now such as Green with Envy, Moot and Miss Louise just to name a few. 
I finally found 'Orgasmy' at Moot in the black which happens to be the last pair! I seem to have such luck when I shop, ha!
I believe it's worth investing in a good pair of sunnies that won't date and serve as a complimentary to most/all outfits.
