A Fresh Wave Hits London Fashion Week 12SS By Yu Han Huang
London Fashion Week is not only about the top notch designers. In fact, the leading showcase of new fashion designers, Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch show was another highlight during London Fashion Week. In past 10 years, Ones to Watch had discovered several designers such as David Longshaw and Hermione de Paula. And for this year’s Ones to Watch, another four new designers was ready to shine their name in the fashion industry. One of the amazing collection “Sseddog” designed by Shao Yen Chen, who was born and raised in Yilan, Taiwan, and moved to London to start his fashion degree in Central Saint Martin college. During the time he had gained experience as an intern for Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chilean. Maybe this name is new for you, but he had already presented his first collection in the Central Saint Martins MA Fashion show at London Fashion Week 2010 AW, and had worked for several stars, such as Iceland pop star Bjork in Dazed & Confused
magazine, he also started his own label “Shao Yen” after graduated in 2010. “ Be open to everything. Things you can’t accept might just become the motif for creating more things you enjoy. “ Shao Yen described his design philosophy in his website page. Became one of the schedule for London Fashion Week, he played with different kinds of unconventional materials, as well as the relationship between clothing and the human body. The name of this season’s collection “Sseddog” comes from the word “goddess” written backwards. Inspired by the elegance of goddess, and the photos of prostitutes that an American photographer took in the 1980s and 90s’. He chose black and gold to be the main colour to create a sense of darkness of this world, and showed slim and sexy looks by using stitching, wrapping, bundling around silk, satin and gossamer wools. In addition, he transmitted different meanings—For the goddess, the naked body is natural and divine, but for prostitutes, it has a sexual aspect purpose—by exposing different parts of the body for each look.
The abstract silhouette from look to look were absolutely impressive and gave audiences an interesting aesthetic appeal. The collection was really catch attentions and had earned a lot of compliments from people in the field. Vogue Italia’s senior fashion and talents editor Sara Maino was feature his design piece on Vogue.it, and high end retailers such as Liberty London and Selfridges London also showed their interest to launch his collection in stores. The collection came with total 16 amazing looks, and it was the first time Shao Yen introduced his belts, handbags, and hats design. Maybe the runway show is over, but for this emerging star designer Shao Yen Chen and his brand “Shao Yen” is just a beginning of his fashion journey. x
The most stylish siblings of the moment By Yu Han Huang
The Olsen twins were recently crowned both Vogue’s Best Dressed, and this year’s the “Year of the Sister,” But seems MaryKate and Ashley Olsen have some competition in the “Most Stylish sisters” depart-
ment now. Although the Olsen twin gracing the cover of Vogue magazine’s newest Best Dressed issue, Dakota and Elle Fanning star on W magazine’s December cover, styled with high-fashion glamour. Both 13-year-old Elle Fanning and 17-yearold Dakota Fanning are no strangers to spotlights. Not only they both rose to fame as child stars on big screens, but they have impressed the fashion field by their increasable fashion sense. The Fanning sisters have been popping up in shows this New York Fashion week, covered numerous fashion magazines, and have become designer muses such as Marc Jacob.
Elle, younger of the two, is just beginning to make a name of herself. Elle stated her career playing the younger version of Dakota in various movies and shows. At the age 13, she immediately nabbed the title of Fashion’s newest daring by her forward-thinking fashion sense. Elle always knows what she likes and sticks to it, her wardrobe is full with simple but elegant dresses by designers like Marc Jacobs, and Valentino, as well as collections of classic shoes, like Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, and some stylish boots. There is no doubt she can be a perfect example of age-appropriate dressing, which means mix sophisticated and cute style all at one. While Elle is footing herself in the fashion industry, her older sister, Dakota, is nothing to brush off either. She has become both the perfume muse and campaign face of Marc Jacobs, the 17-year-old Dakota is transitioning from a tiny child star into a young adult actress. And recently, she decided to attend NYU to be a college student in order to have that normal college experience. Not like her younger sister’s elegant, classic style, Her college student style is more laid back casual approach. Instead of wearing the dress made by Marc Jacob, she choose a pair of jeans, and an oversized Alexander Wang top to rocks her own daytime style. These sisters, though their face may looks alike, but their theory of fashion are totally different. No matter who do you like more, you can’t deny both Elle and Dakota are doing petty stand up job in both movie industry and the fashion field. At the age of 13 and 17, but already looks such sleek and chic for their style, the feature of this siblings must be continued shine. x
