Oriental Oasis

Here’s a recent editorial I styled for Prestige Magazine. Loved how I was able to be as creative as I wanted to for this editorial. Which means layers upon layers upon layers….socks under sandals…pants as tops & tops as pants. A little geisha, a little samurai, a little chinadoll, and of course was inspired by the traditional korean costume “Han Boke”…inspired by their vibrant clashing colors. Welcome to the Oriental Oasis.

    I would have to agree with Jessie ^ I would love to be your shadow on a shoot or runway. I was in acting/modelling for a bit but I always thought school was more important and since I was in high school at the time I just wanted to make sure everything was lined up for university. Now I slightly regret losing touch with it all because I would be so happy to model stuff you do. I love all of these and my two faves are the bright red/orange dress, the navy strapless with pink/red details and the amazing red pants in the last photo.

      aw thanks sydnee~ It’s great that you have school on ur resume! It’s only going to help you out! I always tell girls do EVERYTHING you can and dont’ limit yourself to one thing or one way. You can always create a career in modeling/acting/styling/anything that you are passionate about on the side/part time until it picks up and you can make it your fulltime job :) xoxo

    I really embrace the fact that you are an Asian American stylist. Its really inspirational. However, as a young Asian American girl, I really feel like Asian American women (or women of color) are neglected in the modeling industry. Its really hard to live up to a standard of beauty especially if it’s usually a person that’s not of your own race (I.e. I’m black so I naturally am thicker but feel pressured to be voluptuous but also skinny ?? Lol.) I was wondering if you want to have equal representation of Asian American models in your work?

    Keep up the awesome work!

    Thank you

      The Asian beauty always has been embraced and seen “beautiful” but has never caught the mainstream media attention…until this year that is. This year has been a GREAT year for asian models. Almost every runway show had atleast 3-6 asian models…Liu Wen is the face of Estee lauder and has walked for the Victorias secret runway show, Vogue dedicated their whole issue ( I believe it was around 3 months ago) to the asian beauty, the rising of asian designers (phillip lim, jason wu, derek lam, alexander wang, Parabal garung, etc), Louis vuitton’s ad campaign was asian inspired as well as Givenchy’s couture collection used ONLY asian models for their whole show. It’s REALLY our year to shine as Asian Americans! It’s only going to grow tremendously from here! Hope this gives you some hope! :) xoxo

  • OMG, these are amazing!! You have wonderful eyes for style. Hope to make it to a level to be able to work with you in the future.
