Do It Yourself! Seoul Fashion Week Street Style

So it's clear. The street style that comes out of Seoul Fashion Week is where it is at. Plus the street style photographers who capture all these lovely Koreans get it right! Don't you agree?

The fashion is bright, playful and of course experimental. Plus I don't think I have been this inspired in a long time. What are the best things about the shots I have looked at over the course of the last two weeks I hear you ask? Well for one, most of the pieces you see people wearing can be purchased at lower price points than the couture luxury labels you see walking around Paris Fashion Week for example. PLUS the Koreans have this thing with matching. Matching outfits for the perfect shot. OR maybe it's because the street style photographers know how to direct and include people into the perfect shot?? Check out photo 6 below - it's like the Fashion Cricket Team have been lined up all in a row as they step off the bus. I say Fashion because they are so much more chic than your regular cricket team. Then you can't help but notice photo 7 below after that. Did these girls get dressed together? Or maybe they're best friends who love to buy the same thing when they go out on the weekend together? I am in LOVE with the metallic sleeves on their moto jackets.

So check out some street style from Seoul Fashion Week below. I have used the last denim ensemble street style shot as inspiration for another one of my Do It Yourself! Street Style Looks. So keep scrolling…

Do It Yourself! Denim Love Street Style Outfit

So here is one inspired by the boys. Well the lovely Korean male wearing a fabulous all denim look which is right on trend at the moment to be precise. Speaking of which, apparently a great idea is to buy pieces in denim that are unexpected. Like a denim dress for example.

I have put together the outfit below using ASOS Australia and THE ICONIC pieces which provides a great way to keep things affordable so you can stay on trend. Best of all, if you shop the right way, you can use the items you purchase season after season.

Another great way to keep everything within budget is to search online for coupons and deals at your favourite stores. For instance, when I was searching for pieces from ASOS Australia and THE ICONIC I came across a great coupon site so I could purchase the items even cheaper! Both etailers have great deals HERE.

 What do you think of the outfit below? Would you wear all of it or would you have styled it differently? And do you use coupons when shopping? It's something that is becoming more and more popular in Australia. Comment at the end of the post - I love hearing from you!

Maria Hitcher Autumn Winter 2015-16

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Kiev, Fashion Scout

It's all happening in the Ukraine and Russia in terms of fashion shows. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia ran from the 26th until the 31st of March and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Kiev ran from the 26th until the 29th March.

Maria Hitcher showed her Autumn Winter 2015-16 Collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Kiev in the Fashion Scout hall. Fashion Scout is included in London, Paris and Kiev Fashion Weeks and supports emerging fashion designers by sponsoring shows for selected young talent. Fashion Scout Kiev has become the best platform for young designers from all over Eastern Europe. This season Fashion Scout Kiev will house 30 designers from different countries, including the Czech Republic, Georgia, Russia, Canada and, of course, Ukraine.

The Maria Hitcher Autumn Winter Collection is bright, colourful and playful. Hitcher is a conceptual brand of women’s clothing and Hitcher sights the aesthetics of the 40s and films by David Lynch as the main inspiration for her new collection. The collection tells a story about women and how they should just be proud of their uniqueness. Hitcher hopes women won't try to hide their strength. Intelligence and eccentricity, pure colors, minimalist cut and simple classic silhouettes, complemented by constructivity details are the main DNA of brand Maria Hitcher.

I think my favourite look is the faux fur green coat with its yellow straps shown in photo 4. This shot is from the Fashion Scout Runway held about 24 hours ago.

What is your favourite look? Do you try and discover new talent? Have you purchased and of their pieces? Comment at the end of the post - I love to hear from you!

Floating Flower Garden 花と我と同根

An Exhibition at Tokyo’s Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation

Check out this exhibition by Teamlab at Tokyo's Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.

I was looking at the kanji that was included in the information for the exhibition too to further my Japanese studies. From my limited kanji knowledge, the Kanji 花と我と同根、庭と我と一体と translates into a sentence describing how humans and flowers share the same root and we can be one with the garden. Viewers should walk through the installation and feel the tranquil vibe. Teamlab invites participants to immerse themselves in a thick abundance of delicate pink petals and lush greenery.

The installation is also interactive. The colorful blossoms most near to each viewer rise upwards, slowly, all at once, creating a cavity of flowers that surrounds them. Therefore the spaces around each viewer are constantly moving and changing position because they are affected by each viewer, their movement and their position within the installation. If lots of people gather closely together, the dome spaces link up to form one single, massive cavity.

Check out the video below!

These Boots are Made for Walking

House of Holland Autumn Winter 2015-16

Tokyo Fashion Week, March 16-21, 2015

Day 5 at Tokyo Fashion Week saw House of Holland, the London based brand run by Henry Holland, take to the DHL Exported stage. Holland said that his House of Holland Autumn Winter 2015-16 presentation was inspired by the Blade Runner movie and a future cityscape - his Mongolian fur pieces in the show really stood out.

The runway show soundtrack was a few singles off of Drake’s new album, along with house and Mark Ronson’s hit ‘Uptown Funk’. There was also a question and answers sessions with Holland after the show.

I have to say that I love the rich colours and bold patterns of this Autumn Winter 2015-16 House of Holland collection. I feel like there is sort of a tough girl vibe to the show that fits in well with the Tokyo scene. Each outfit appeals to me as I love dressing in bright colours with black accents to tie the look together - I find myself often dressing in an outfit with a black bag and shoes. You probably notice this if you are an avid visitor to Fashion Blender™.

I love the garter top shown in photo 3, however my favourite look has to be the blue/black ensemble in photo 6. This is closely followed by the red leather and pink Mongolian fur neck piece look in the last photo. Who can go past all those boots!! They'll certainly wear well - they have a dirty surface treatment straight out of Blade Runner! If I wasn't sold on the Blade Runner theme to start with, that red outfit sealed the deal.

The DHL Export program is a program that supports designers entering the global market. This time around the program, which offers the opportunity to present one’s collection at fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Tokyo, attracted over 150 applications from around the world. Four winners were chosen and Henry Holland (House of Holland) won the opportunity to present his collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week TOKYO in October 2014 and March 2015. Holland feels that '...London and Tokyo have many things in common, such as how various cultures have been transmitted from the streets, and how people express their individuality and identity through their clothing.'

The world is becoming increasingly borderless and Holland feels that '...we are in an era of globalization, but we are definitely affected by the surrounding environment, and I feel that there is clearly a strong relationship between where we are based and the clothes that we make. This is not necessarily visibly apparent, but I feel that the aesthetics and our manner of approach are affected. For instance, I am from north London and I continue to work in London today, and I feel that Londoners use self-deprecating humor and irony and have a cheeky nature, and this is also reflected in my products. I think that it is important to introduce products made from this particular viewpoint to the world.'
