Young Designers Collective


With my penchant for fashion and art, i am obviously (and no doubt about it) fond of  designing clothes, accessories, shoes, bags for myself. it is my dream to someday work with fashion and maybe even work for the prestigious Alexander Mcqueen house!

well, with all dreams, aspirations, and wishes aside, there are so many fabulous people who are young designers (like me) starting out with fashion. However, unlike me, these group of people are in the collaborative cooperation with non-profit organizations. They are putting their creativity into altruistic uses and I am in awe of these people. This philanthropic works are not only beautiful visually but are also works of art that have true meaning.

These people are the YOUNG DESIGNERS COLLECTIVE from New York City!
look through their catalog to learn more! Their pieces are for custom order.

P.S. I am in love with that hat!!!

my senior prom pictures! this was my first and last highschool dance~ it was an amazing night spending with my friends. i must say, it was a single ladies' party!
our prom does not include dinner, so the best choice was to obviously go to a japanese restaurant and eat sushi! also that night, we found a gem in the city: a cute little coffee house whose interior was picture-perfect and with live music outside! the actual dance was really fun, despite the eyesore (the orgy-like congregation in the middle of the dance floor). then we went to the all-american diner at 1 AM... Denny's! i had my bee-hive hair, leather jacket, american diner, strawberry-shake, 50's vibe... I really need a thunderbird!
I obviously refused to be a normal highschool girl looking like a princess when going to prom, so I wore a leather jacket with my MsDressy dress. Unfortunately, it was too hot in the dance...I had to take off my fierce, strong-shouldered leather jacket!

you will see my lovely friends who made the night incredibly fabulous after the break!

and it's Prom season!


...this time the difference is, I am actually going to prom!
my first and, of course, last high school dance in which i will be given the opportunity to overdress  (as if i already don't do that)--- meaning, i can take my obsession to overdressing to another level right?!

anyway, despite this rare opportunity, I still have a dilemma on what to wear.

fashion forward (maybe even man-repelling lol) vs classic glamour (black simple tulle prom dress)?
which one???? and it's in two weeks. 
to wear a dress or go with separates?
oh... how i wish i have dolce and gabbana pieces in my wardrobe

 H&M conscious collection, but i will probably go with the dress i'm wearing here: http://hedonistdrive.blogspot.com/2013/03/suit-and-tie.html

I need opinions!
