Summer Chase

Fashion's larger than life 

When I was young, I have always loved to draw and read Fashion magazines. I was fascinated with Fashion, and soon chose my path to become a Fashion Designer.
I realized that my dream was to be a Fashion Designer.

I was inspired by the thoughts of making clothes for people, thinking how I can transform and make each and every one of them looking elegant and beautiful.
I'd be very happy if my work could someday make a change in people's lives, satisfy them, and they would wear my work with confidence.

Apparently, My parents weren't quite happy and supportive towards my career as a Fashion Designer, they think it's a waste of time and money.

To every child, it means a lot to them and it is essential that parents support them in whatever they do.

I was discouraged. Eventually, I had to promised my parents that when I'm done with my Fashion studies, I would listen to what they say.

Deep down, that really made me sad and disappointed, until now.

Some artists such as Picasso, could spend the rest of their life painting, singing, doing the things they like to do until they die.

Why can't I be one of them ? I should stop thinking..

After all,  someone was willing to build my dream up.
She gave me a lot of chances to take up new challenges and kept encouraging me with my work.

Last year, I took part in this big fashion show here in Malaysia, called MIFW (Malaysia International Fashion Week 2010).

Standing on the stage was not easy! As I did not sleep properly for one whole month. I was working very hard to make this colorful dress which consisted
nine different colours. It was a good experience though ;P

I love what I do. And I hope I can inspire other people too 

"Life isn't that hard. It's just either Black or White." ;)

And I want to thank everyone out there who has been supporting me during my hard times! I'm grateful with your help and really appreciate it!

Burlesque Queen

Dita Von Teese 

She is one of a kind. She is the biggest name in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee. She tops international best-dressed lists. She is a modern day fashion icon. She is credited for bringing back the glamour and allure of Old Hollywood stars. Self-created. Distinctive. Iconic. Often imitated, never duplicated. She is Dita Von Teese.

In 2005 she appeared in the Autumn/Winter Ready-to-Wear show for Giambattista Valli, a former designer for Ungaro, in Paris. In the 2006 MilanFashion Week, Von Teese was on the runway, opening for the Moschino diffusion label, Moschino Cheap & Chic, autumn/winter 2006/7 show.

In spite of this, Von Teese states that she never uses a stylist. "The one time I hired a stylist, they picked up a pair of my 1940s shoes and said, 'These would look really cute with jeans.' I immediately said, 'You’re out of here.'" She does her own make-up, and dyes her naturally blonde hair black at home. Von Teese's unique style is "inspired by eccentric women like Luisa CasatiAnna Piaggi, and Isabella Blow."

The Bitter End

The Bitter End 

I mean you go out and there's just nobody around and you're sort of sitting there waiting for the night bus and there's just not a soul, its really good and nobody bothers you and the buses are empty and the  tubes are empty and things like that, I mean it's such better, night's much better than day. If you're walking down the street nobody will take any notice of what you're wearing if they cant see you properly and like people wont really look at your face, things like that you know, which is pretty awesome =)
