Johan Ku: Impressive Fashion Designer of Asia

Johan Ku, the award-winning designer, started his career as a graphic designer, since he was 17 years old. He established his own design studio in 2005, and he had participated Hong Kong Fashion Week twice in 2007.

For Spring/Summer 2012, Johan Ku presented a collection at Mercedes Benz Tokyo Fashion Week called "The Two Faces." The pieces look a certain way in the light but change as they glow in the dark. Lights flashed as the show began and a model paraded to the middle of the floor where she turned in a circle to let the audience have a good look as the lights dimmed and her garment took on a whole new appearance.

WWD Japan ranked his 2012 Spring/Summer collection “The two faces” as one of the top seven collections in the Mercedes-Benz Tokyo fashion week. His work appeared in many renowned magazines (Marie-Claire, GQ, Vogue, Elle…) and his “Emotional Sculpture” collection won Gen Art’s Design Vision Avant-Garde award in New York in December 2009. Indeed, the former graphic designer from Taipei, Johan Ku, has already found his place in the fashion industry. He is now established in London, after studying fashion at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College.

Thanksgiving 2011 Outfit Ideas for Women

Unless you're headed to a Pilgrims party, dressing for turkey-filled holiday dinners requires a bit of effort. Here's a slew of figure-flattering picks that'll keep you feeling great through that second piece of pumpkin pie.

If You're Dining Out...

Dress to impress! The tights necessitated by wintry weather mean you can be courageous with shorter hemlines, whether you have perfect pins or not-just make sure you opt for opaque, not sheer, stockings. Shop for a mini that's balanced with fuller sleeves and a flow skirt, and you'll be comfy from appetizers through dessert. RB Styling Tip: Dark tights plus black pumps equal much longer-looking legs.

If You're Seeing Immediate Family... 

Comfort rules when your tablemates are Mom, Dad, and your little bro. Forgiving knits are always a good pick for a chow-fest, but these contrasting stripes and dolman sleeves look more stylish than your old college tee-shirt. Tone down the large fit with figure-hugging bottoms. You can even try skinny jeans or (tasteful) leggings if the cut is long enough to cover your bum.

If You're Seeing Extended Family... 

Pick a beautiful blouse that can be paired with a pencil skirt or jeans, depending on how you feel the morning of (or how formal your most show-off-y cousin looks when she arrives). The lace and ruffles on this pick are sure to get compliments from Grandma, and the layered fabric will distract from any trouble zones, be it tummy, chest, or arms.

If You're Meeting Your Boyfriend's Parents... 

Look polished with a well-tailored dress. This pick's wide v-neck will make your décolleté look swan-like, and the draping at the hips conceals any extra weight you've put on since falling in lurve. Plus, the elastic waist-band is ideal for digging into the biggest meal of the year, an important wardrobe fact whether you're dining with future in-laws or not.

If You're Spending The Holiday With Friends...

Since pal parties are often more festive than familial commitments, add a little glitz to your getup. Bust out the sequins, but save the bright colors for New Year's Eve. A tee-shirt shape keeps the sparkles day-appropriate and won't feel as night-clubby as a more revealing cut.

If You're Cooking...

Plan on being busy until the last moment with basting, baking, and more. A one-piece jumpsuit is easy to pull on seconds before your guests arrive, and the fashionable shape will have revelers complimenting you on your style and your cranberry sauce. Don't think these cuts are only flattering on stick-thin shapes: Thanks to gathered waistlines and wide pant legs, ladies of all sizes can rock 'em.

Famous Wedding Dress Worn by Popular Personalities

Less than 48 hours after the release of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, the official replica of Bella Swan’s Carolina Herrera wedding dress has hit stores.

According to the Wall Street Journal, designer Michael Shettel (who works for wedding retailer Alfred Angelo) hooked up with Summit back in May, after Herrera had designed the dress Kristen Stewart wears to wed Edward Cullen in the movie, to whip up an affordable version of the long-sleeved gown.  He used liquid satin and “chantilly-like” lace after a visit to the real dress on set, and came up with a $799 version that hit stores this morning.  He tells the Journal, “It really is for a Twilight fan because it does represent what the film is about…but I think the silhouette transcends many different viewpoints.”

Meanwhile, the white cowl neck gown that Pippa Middleton wore to her sister’s wedding to Prince William in May finally hit Net-a-porter this morning.  It was listed for just over $3,100, but sold out in minutes.  If you had your heart set on McQueen, may we suggest this $28,000 hand embroidered to look instead?  If it’s the silhouette you’re after, there’s a shorter red version available.  Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee it’ll make you as popular as Pippa.
