Fashion stardom in full force in New York City. I didn't go to a single show this season but I did make it to Ari's Advanced Style celebration last night. Designers must be relieved that Fashion week is nearly over. Shout out to the 100+ club and of course Ari Seth Cohen, Tavi Gevinson, Dino Siampas, Siki Im, Alice Carey, Terri Murray, Deborah, Miyano Haraki, Jane Folds, Morgan Moffatt, Lynn Dell, Stella Rose, Amos Mac, Patrick MacLeod, Leila Brillson, Ms. Fitz, Debbie Kim, Jou-Yie Chou and Ace Hotel New York.
Principles and elements of design apply to darn near everything. Consider-texture, pattern, color, contrast, cadence, focus, scale balance, emphasis space, line, shape, form, value, repetition, continuity, unity, focus, placement, isolation, absence, rhythm, proportion, orientation, gradation, hue, dominance, alignment, proximity, volume.
Celestial events reveal our fascination with the extraordinary and simultaneously reflect our need to seek out order and routine out of chaos. The harvest moon on 中秋節 felt electric.
Invention and innovation require tremendous energy. It's a labor of love to deliver relevance and difference, to be part of the pack but stand out, to shine and help others can shine too.
I like to stay up late. Too bad I also wake up early. Work hard. Play hard.
