Sorry for being MIA for a while interms of blogging.
Have been super busy juggling with life as a hair stylist , blogger and fashion designer. Yes I am proud to happily announce that the first collection of my fashion label BTW3 have officially launched. Its been a very long creative journey and I feel so blessed to have so much support from followers , fellow designers and of course my amazing team who helped me so much along the way. Which is why I would like to come back to this blog by sharing an OOTD streetsnap post featuring one of my favourite pieces of the collection.
While designing my first collection for BTW3, somehow it felt right to design clothes from my off duty wardrobe- wearable, timeless clothing which can be worn to work or to brunch on weekends. Diane Von Furstenberg have once said, “Good Clothing should be like friends and throughout the years, your wardrobe will be a collection of “friends” which will come back and make you feel good about yourself whenever you need them”. I really want BTW3 to be a collection of “Friends for Life” for my customers in the future.
On the other hand every season, it is important for me to produce an item which I can be creative and push myself as a fashion designer. With Collection 1 my “Deconstructed Checkered Sweater” is the creative piece in the collection.
Playing with the idea of the classic checkered knit sweater, I’ve moved the classic V neck towards one side so it looks like a TICK or asymmetric V then rotated the checkered print in the opposite direction. The contrasting of the plaid extends to the sleeve so it almost looks like the sleeve is woven into the sweater. The sweater comes in 2 other colour ways but for my first OOTD post featuring my own design on this blog, I’ve decided to go with the one with HOT PINK- my favourite colour with green. A white shirt, pink jeans, black Prada shoes and a pair of pink and purple KENAX LEUNG sunnies finish my bold take to a classic menswear look.
Without further Doodahs here are the photos.
