    Just Drew it girl collection NYFW16 at Style Fashion Week This is the 3rd fashion designer I’d like to introduce to you from NYFW16. You can click here to read about Leanne Marshall’s effortlessly elegant offerings and here for street sleek from Control Sector. The 3rd brand is called Just Drew and it was named after Andrew Warren, who is the grandson of fashion tycoon David Warren. I was not born in America so I am not very familar with a lot of cultural or fashion history. But I read about how David Warren launched his very successful dress business in the 60’s when dresses were not even in fashion.…

    NYFW16 Leanne Marshall fall and winter collection fashion show

    NYFW16 Leanne Marshall fall and winter collection fashion show 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…

    Soulful sounds fashion show

    Soulful sounds fashion show Last weekend I was invited to the Soulful Sounds Fashion Show which was staged with the goal of raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. I am always a supporter for all kinds of charity events and admire the producers who are willing to do so much work for a good cause. The time and effort these people put in is incredible. It makes me tired just thinking about it! This event was the dream of and produced by Kiera Johnson Hughes and hosted by Shay Omygod. No, really, that’s her name and she is a blast! The designers and models came in all sorts…

    Young fashion designer Daria Dimitrova interview

    Young fashion designer Daria Dimitrova interview Two weeks ago I was invited to 1st Annual Fashion Winter Ball fashion show and met this young fashion designer in Michigan. Her name is Daria Dimitrova and she is only 12 years old. I spent a short time on the back stage of the fashion show with Daria and later on we communicated a lot by email. As you all know I am a teacher. I teach middle school and high school students. So it is very interesting to get to know her as a young designer. I can’t help to compare her with my 7th graders and am often impressed by her…

    They got it right Hour Detroit Best Dressed Fashion Show

    They got it right Hour Detroit Best Dressed Fashion Show For today’s “They Got It Right”, I am going to run it a little bit differently. There are a lot of people who think there is no fashion in Michigan. I have to admit that for a long time, I was one of them! I mean let’s be real, I came here from Shanghai. More people live in Shanghai than in the entire state of Michigan, by a lot. And everybody knows that Detroit had seen it’s best days long ago. I was shocked to see Americans in general, and Michiganders in particular, live and breath in tees and jeans.…

    Fashion designer interview Brittany Barbee

    Fashion designer interview Brittany Barbee I am on my vacation from 7/18-28, I will not be able to answer your comments but I still love to see them when I am back. šŸ˜‰ I have always been dreaming of becoming a fashion designer! But it just feels like I don’t have the skills or knowledge to start it. But I couldn’t stay away from fashion altogether. So I became a fashion blogger, at least for now! I still hope in the future I will somehow find a door towards this dream. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE blogging! Being a fashion blogger even comes with a lot of perks.…
