OOTD- #BTW3 DECONSTRUCTED CHECKERED SWEATER

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.

FORBIDDEN CHIC

Long time no update. Been so busy with the launch of BTW X KOITE – my debute accessories collaboration with Hong Kong accessories brand KOITE HANDMADE. stay tuned on a future blog post.

One of the greatest things about this industry is to meet fashion bloggers who share different styles and a love for fashion.  Fashionistas United is something I am very passionate about which is why I’ve personally been wanting to do a group blog post for a long time. Vforvisala is my style sister who is often helps me take some of the best photos in this blog. I’ve always loved her eclectic and fun view of Fashion.  Juuannie is a fashion blogger I met recently who loves black. I am always amazed with how she can always find different way to work with her dark slightly punk/gothic take on fashion.  Together we really want to see how we can style jam together with this photoshoot wearing pieces of my accessories collection.

FORBIDDEN CHIC is an attitude. Every fashionista go thru a time in their lives where they want to grow up and look chic but fear that they may lose their own personal style.  But as I get older I began to realize that what I love about fashion is the way we can use it to express ourselves. Black and white will always be fashionable and chic nomatter how old you are or what style you have. When we were young we fear that minimalism and simplicity will turn boring but in the past month I begin to think that minimalism is a way to appeciate detail – the cut of the shirt, feel the material of the cotton and to make the cute buttons of the shirt stand out.  It is also a blank canvas of accessories . In a way its like a confident men or women whos comfortable with their own skin, and some time its a lipstick or a good haircut is all it takes to make them look the most beautiful just like a simple black and white outfit with the perfect accessory.

Anyways enough blablablas…. Here are the photos by the amazing MART YEUNG
