My grandmother was 7 years old when she started making clothes for her entire family and her style genes and knowledge passed down to my mother and I (it seemed to skip my other family members though. 😉 )
She went through A LOT in her life that no words can describe but EVERYDAY she was dressed to the T, every Sunday the hat was crisp, and her kids were well dress. No one would ever know the pain she had to deal with at home. Even if some did they were flabbergasted at how everyday she’d manage to look like a million bucks. I believe fashion can show your strength and that no matter what you’re dealing with to always take care of yourself. Then the “Ninja”part is simply because I love Asian culture more specific butt kicking movies 😉 And when kicking butt we must be sexy right? Lol.
Name 2 male Kpop stars or boy bands that you would love to dress. What about 2 female Kpop stars or girl bands?
First which most would expect from me would be Rain 비. NOT because I want to see him naked..(maybe) but that I would love to be the one to implement his new refreshed image when ends his military duty. During his later years he’s been in suits and very well polished which I love but I think a good transition would be a boho, monochromatic laidback but still put together type of look. The kind of “I don’t care” look. To visualize it think of Japanese guitar god Miyavi’s new look. After a wife and two kids he changed from visual kei and crazy colors to a monochromatic laid back style. I feel Jung Jihoon would look GOOD in a loose fitting white shirt and harem pants with black boots. Whew!
They’re a brand new Kpop band that’s out. Very FT Island/CN Blueish but seem to have their own flair. I first experienced them at Jay Park’s New Breed concert in Seoul with them doing a rendition of 2NE1’s “I love you.” I feel they’re still trying to find a look for themselves, especially the lead singer. I’d like to see them in really geeked out different patterned high watered suits. I’d throw a top hat on the leader. I’d give the guitarist colored drum sticks to match his outfits.
Just because they’re so awesome. For a video or performance I’d dress them really girly and feminine. Flowy and form fitting dresses with gold jewelry (to contrast with their fierce edgy style that I LOVE). I’d put Minzy in a cute but sporty dress showing her legs. Since she’s a dance machine I’d add some short lace leggings. Minzy’s a really attractive and sexy woman but since in Korean society she’s still seen as a teen and that she’s not the “ideal” look people don’t’ really see her. She’s gorgeous, fierce and sexy and I can’t wait til she’s of age so she can show it!
The female lead in City Hunter and Sungkyunkwan Scandal. In my opinion she’s the most gorgeous actress in Asia. She’s gentle, sweet and cute as a button. I’d like to dress her with that image but also throw in some hot red lipstick, smokey eyes with a Valentino gown. Give her a daring look. I’d even like to see her with shorter hair since her face is so petite and small. Kinda choppy to contrast with her sweet persona.
How would you compare Korean fashion to the fashion you saw in Japan?
Where do you see your brand in the next 5 years?
In 5 years I want my brand to be constantly moving and growing. I know I want to MC and host fashion and music related things. So within that 5 years time I hope to have transitioned into that. I want to establish an accessory line and continue blogging and vlogging inAsia. Continuing expressing myself, promoting Asian fashion and music, and giving insight into life abroad is my goal for a while. I have such supportive people who follow my blog and vids that I want to continue doing for them and giving inspiration to people who want to travel abroad. The sky is the limit!
Many young teachers relocating to Korea know about the Canadian couple behind “Eat Your Kimchi” Simon and Martina. How would you style them for a fan meet and greet in Seoul?
