In April, 2007, I moved to America from China to marry my man. My new life started then. It began with learning English and the culture of my new home. The best way for me to do that was watching American TV shows. Quickly I discovered and was hooked on a little show called Project Runway. You may have heard of it. I always dreamed of being a fashion designer so I was so pumped up by that show. And that was where I first “met” Leanne Marshall who was the winner of Project Runway Season 5 in 2008.

Since day one, Leanne Marshall already had her signature layers, ruffles and architecture silhouette look on her skirts and cocktail  dresses. And it’s worked. She mainly focused on her theme and has become more famous because of it. I started to see the effortlessly elegant vibe from her design since 2013. And her 2016 fall and winter collection, which showed a few days ago at New York Fashion Week, is totally first class. And I should know; I was there!

Like she said in the past, her dresses are made for movement. It was breathtaking when I saw those beautiful pieces on the runway. The ways they flowed when the models were walking made me think of the goddesses of ancient Greece. Just like a lot of live events, you really have to be there and see it with your own eyes to feel the full experience. I feel very lucky to be invited to this show!

Every year she chooses a different color theme and for this show she went pretty dark. There were a lot of blacks and browns but still with some pops of yellow. She explained that she was finding her inspiration from the leaves of fall.

  1. I teach English as a foreign language, and I always tell my students that the best way to learn a language is to read something / watch TV shows that they are interested in. In other words, do whatever they would do in their native language. It makes learning fun and they have no problems with motivation. I’m happy to learn that this approach worked for you, too.

  2. What a cool back story to the fashion show you attended! I know how hard it is to learn a new language…I’ve been taking Italian since we moved to Rome last year and some days I still feel completely lost when I try to speak! Can’t wait to hear about everything else you did during NYFW 🙂

  3. My husband learned English by watching British and American films and watching BBC Television channel (he’s Dutch) and in The Netherlands they don’t dub films so you hear the English and read the subtitles for translation. Meant he picked up English much much quicker for when he did his degree in physics in London. I can’t imagine how it would be to study such a hard topic in a foreign language!
    That’s such a pretty jumper, Grace and the earmuffs are just too cute!
    What a great fashion show. Some beautiful, red carpet worthy pieces.

  4. I’ve always kicked myself in the behind for not purchasing any of Leanne’s sample pieces from her Etsy store. Even more so now when I look at her latest collection and marvel at how far she’s come (which I didn’t even think possible since she was already spectacular when I first saw her designs years ago). I’m particularly fond of the Looks shown in your images 4, 5 and 6. Brilliant. And incidentally, I think your choice of outfit was rather clever. People tend to dress up to the nines for these shoes, going all out, and yours is so clean yet striking with that ombre effect that I’m certain you stood out, and beautifully too 🙂 xoxo
