Of Vietnamese Ao Dais & Chinese Winter; AFF Star Creation 2013 Alumni Capsule Collections

Hi Lovelies!

So back in May, I attended the capsule collection of the winners/alumni of Star Creation 2013. If you haven’t, go check out my post on Star Creation 2014 here! After a year-long internship with powerhouse luxury retailer F J Benjamin, designers Vu Ta Linh, 27 (Vietnam) and Sun Yijin, 25 (China) presented their capsule collections at the Audi Fashion Festival.

Presenting some of my picks from designers Vu Ta Linh, 27 (Vietnam).

Drawing inspiration from a song performed by a top Vietnamese singer, designer Vu Ta Linh’s collection ‘Indigo’ featured various shades of the colour. Elegant models donned the collection that successfully encapsulated elements of the traditional Vietnamese costume, the Ao Dai, in its textures, shapes and detailing.

Love the red in this piece.


Love the drape of this piece and the pairing of the necklace, very warrior goddess-esque!ASC2014Capsule-13-300x450

Another look i love, strong yet also feminine and glamourous.

Presenting some of my picks from Sun Yijin, 25 (China):

Chinese native Sun Yijin brought about a change in seasons at Tent@Orchard as she sent models down the runway in her collection titled ‘Winter’. A colour palette of white, grey and black – commonly associated with winter – was peppered with bursts of bright orange and pine green, as she sought to combine the tropical elements in Singapore with China’s seasonal climate.ASC2014Capsule-25-300x450

Definitely love the burst of orange.

This cute leaf/nature prints in green and white is very Japanese whimsical cute.ASC2014Capsule-27-300x450

This print reminds me of Korean designer Lie Sang Bong. See:
