Patricia Chang 'miss cinnamon' Dress & 'large bot' Necklace (borrowed) | Giuseppe Zanotti Boots | Aldo Clutch | Michael Kors Watch | Ray Bans Sunglasses
It was such a pleasure meeting the lovely and beyond incredibly talented New York Based Designer, Patricia Chang this MBFW. I was so fortunate enough to borrow some of her pieces from her Spring/Summer 2013 Collection with a whimsical robot theme. Having previously been a part of the design team for Marchesa and then freelancing for Alice & Olivia, Elizabeth and James and Naeem Khan to name a few, Patricia has gained the knowledge and experience that has led her to collectively put together pieces that are sophisticated yet feminine. Her collection has been recently featured on a few of my own favorite and inspirational bloggers such as Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage, Peony Lim, Wendy from WendysLookbook, and Krystal Bick from This Time Tomorrow. And its no suprise this skilled designer is getting press in some very familiar places such as Elle, Marie Claire, Vogue.com, Vogue.co.uk, Vogue.mx, Fashionologie, Style.com, Because Magazine, and The New York Times.
Besides being a devoted cat person like myself, she takes complete pride and devotion in her craft. Her creations are so individually intricate and beautiful that its almost as if each are telling its own story and I admire her for that. The designs are so exquisite, making you realize how truly detailed she is and allowing your mind to appreciate the many hours put into each piece from the sharp tailoring to each and every single bead. After getting to know her a little bit more I realized that she is just like anyone else with a dream, all it takes is heart and dedication. I am so excited for the many more amazing collections Patricia Chang has in store for us and am truly grateful for this new friendship.
I was really excited when June Ambrose noticed Patricia Chang's emerald green 'large bot' necklace and decided to interview me for more details, it couldn't have been a funnier interview. She called me a label whore because I decided to pair Giuseppe Zanotti boots with the dress, until she realized so was wearing a pair too! haha. I really cannot wait to see how that interview turned out. I was fortunate enough to meet inspiring and gorgeous Miroslava Duma. I am in love with her haircut, thinking of chopping mine - thoughts? I was also lucky enough to catch Peony Lim right before she headed off to London that night, those fushia Manolo Blahniks are to die for!
