Golden 12

went to Golden 12 bloggers' meeting last Wed. (held at CJ E&M center)
we got to hear more about what kind of message this program wants to give out to audience
and I learned so much too
I know I can't be forced to change 100% from what I am today
but as of right now,starting from 0 I will try my best to change my routines of
the way I eat, dress and stuffs to be more affected by these awareness
basically if you remember from my previous post about golden 12
we believe in goods coming from nature

저번주 수요일 CJ E&M 센터를 다녀왔습니다
이번 오리엔테이션을 통해서
프로그램에 대해서도 또 제 자신에게도 변화가 생기게 될 것이라는걸
몸소 체험하고 왔습니다 ㅎㅎ
지금 제 모습에 100% 바뀔거라고 장담드릴수는 없습니다
하지만, 0부터 시작하는 저같은 사람들이
점점 먹고 입는 모습, 일반 생활 라이프스타일이
점점 변화되어가며 인식을 해간다면
그래도 성공적인 변신이 되지 않을까요? :)

welcoming spring & interview with Liz Black










location: KSU (first time introducing you to my school
@ Kyungsung University )
until just about three days ago I could see the pretty cherry blossoms on every tree I passed by
now after some rainy days and interruptive weather,
they are around 40% gone already

경성대에서 찍은 벛꽃들
며칠전까지 환하게 피어있더니
이젠 어느새 반정도는 다 떨어져있는 듯 싶네요
그래도 짧게나마 봄을 알리는 신호가 반가웠어요 :)





vanilla frappuccino + pretzel cheesedog @ Caffe Bene (Haeundae)


바닐라프라페노?와 프렛첼핫도그

this is the 1stlook's interview post with Liz Black

위에 링크를 누르시면 원본 한글 인터뷰를
읽으실수 있어요 ^^


How did you first begin as a designer?

After graduating from Central Saint Martins College and featuring my Degree Collection
"Arty Society" in the College Press Show I've got a lot of attention from the media,
what encouraged me and reinforced my confidence to express my own artistic
so I started my own brand that gave me the freedom needed.




What does your brand demonstrate? in terms of the image, target etc.

Liz Black is a luxury womenswear label set up in 2010.
The brand reflects conceptual creativity with a minimal and elegant aesthetic.
Its focus is on wearable statement pieces with a timeless appeal, emphasising chic and impeccably tailored structures that complement the feminine silhouette. The Liz Black woman is sophisticated,
independent and cosmopolitan. She is a daring yet elegant dresser,
an intellectual and empowered woman, with a successful, busy lifestyle that demands
innovative designs of the highest quality. The Liz Black woman has a strong passion for design
and a keen eye for quality. She is an elegant dresser and an intellectual and empowered woman,
with a busy lifestyle.




How does the inspiration come? Do you pair items in an unexpected way or wearble version for customers?

Inspiration is in the air! When something obsesses me I take that subject as a starting point.
I do a lot of research and reading. I regularly visit museums and art galleries. Then all start
coming together. Most important of all I trust my own vision to create a new collection.


Do you have some ultimate style rule?

Yes I do. I only wear clothes that I feel confidence on and I wore it on my own way.




In your opinion, what makes the finishing touch to one's outfit?

Individuality and killer shoes!


Any message for readers?

Don't be afraid to stand out!!!

preview episode #3 of social club: Golden 12 (@Onstyle)

this post may seem a bit unusual
i don't think i had written a post to talk about a TV show
this time I wanted to share with you this newly launched program called
the social club: Golden 12 hosted by Lee Hyo Ri
she's the true fashionista, pop star just ask any Korean to see if there's someone
who don't know who she is
She's a true role model and an icon for many

and so this program is that much more  significant
as the numbers say in the title, this is filled up with total of 12 episodes I believe
in each episode you can find some meaningful events she holds with her besties

up until now, she had a charity event
(and even Jane Birkin came and gave out her autographed Hermes watch
how lucky the owner is!)
, and in episode 2 she filled up her space nicely with some eco-conscious ideas

for this post I'm trying to tell you what will happen in #3
which will air next Thursday Korea time at 11 PM @ Onstyle channel

소셜클럽, 골든 12 가 요즘 핫하게 이슈가 되고 있는데요
많은 분들이 롤모델로 삼고 있으신
팝스타, 패셔니스타이신 이효리씨가 나오시는 프로그램입니다.
절친들과 함께 각각의 총 12에피소드들로 이루어진
의미있는 메세지를 전하는 재미있으면서도 따뜻한 분위기가
연출되어서 볼거리와 또 얻어가는 점 또한 많은 방송이에요

매주 목요일 밤 11시에 온스타일에서 시청하실수 있는데요
이번 돌아오는 목요일에 방송될 3화에 대한 얘기를 하고자 합니다





the theme for this episode is a temple stay

이번 주제는 이색적인 템플 스테이라고 합니다





























rising star Bum-Joon Jang from Busker Busker, and a photographer/sunglasses designer Jang-hyun Hong

seems like they're having a meditation time
I wonder what will they learn throughout this short journey?

버스커버스커의 장범준씨와 포토그래퍼 홍장현님이
명상의 시간을 가지고 있는 듯해요
과연 이번 여행에서 어떤 소중함이나 깨달음을 가지고 가게 될까요?







yoga time sounds fun with your best friends

요가도 베프들과 함께라면 이렇게 재미있는 거겠죠? :)









last main thing I wanted to point out was that
the crew will have some time to put on lotus flower lamp at a pond
to make some wishes

I guess we will be able to hear some personal stories behind these members

if you want to check out more photos, or get to know more about Golden12
and for some short clips, I found many at youtube
(try search something like "Lee Hyo Ri Golden 12" and there are bunch!)

소셜클럽 크류들이 연못에서 연등을 띄우며
소원토크를 했다고 하네요
본방을 본다면 우리도 이 멤버들의 스토리를 들을 수 있을거 같은데요?

Louis Vuitton night + interview with Ted Rossi

school and other stuffs kept me busy these days
sorry that I lacked my outfit posts
actually this Louis Vuitton night is already somewhat a week or two ago
but still wanted to share with you
I love taking polaroids
the films make everything look like a movie set :)

outfit details

LOUIS VUITTON bag & sunglasses
BURBERRY coat



요즘 너무 바쁘다 보니 아웃핏 포스팅을 못했네요 ㅠㅠ
이 사진도 찍은지 일주일정도 되었는데요
폴라로이드의 느낌이 너무 좋아서
지금이라도 셰어 하고 싶었어요 :)




went to see Spring/Summer 2012 shoes presentation
I loved the rainboots (the navy one) and the lovely pastel wedge
(it was seen in ad. can't describe exactly how it looks like...
it's like... fruity printed?)

이번에 봄여름 12 슈즈 위주로 프레젠테이션 되어있었는데요
개인적으로는 네이비 레인부츠와 파스텔 색상의...
과일프린트였나요? 광고에도 나왔던 웨지힐이 제일 예뻐보였어요




also this day my friend made me mango macarons
really love them
taste like real mango jams of course
and love the lemony hue!

이날 친구가 망고 마카롱을 만들어줬는데요
너무 맛있고 레몬색상이 너무 상큼하지 않나요?








and she's also the one who got me this chanel nail polish :)
my failed attempt at trying to make the C logo's
oh well...

샤넬 네일폴리쉬 바른 김에 로고스타일로 큐빅 하려고 했는데...
너무 좁게 잡았더니 실패 ㅎㅎㅎ












this time I did an interview with Ted Rossi for 1stlook's blog
check out the original post here: http://firstlook_b.blog.me/90140679635

한글 인터뷰는 위에 링크로 확인해주세요 ^^





It's a second interview with you Ted. How have you been lately?
Any exciting news to share with us?

Everything has been great. Spring has arrived in NYC, and along with it has come for me a
new energy and re-vitalization for growing the Ted Rossi brand.
We have had the strongest Spring season in the history of the company, so I do have
some exciting things in the works for the company.
But I need to keep it hush hush for now :)




What is the jewelry/accessories trend for this Spring and Summer?
Is it more of a simple studs, or more big statement bold looks?

The neon trend really emerged and took hold for spring/summer 12. Sometimes, these trends can
be really tricky because the retailers buy into it, but you just never know if the consumer will.
The neon trend as an accent to neutrals and whites with simple stud embellishment
was a home run for us this season. I really love the neons.
I think, when styled correctly, they look really fresh, cool, and chic!!!
I see the really embellished and big statement looks returning for fall 2012.
That is the exciting thing about fashion; it is always changing, and there is never a dull moment.




For those looking for everyday wear, what can you recommend?

Go through your closet and make sure you have all the basics covered.
Clean out pieces that you haven't worn in the past few seasons and also pieces that are overly-trendy.
I am a big believer in quality over quantity. When buying everyday wear, look for very well
constructed/designed pieces in good fabrics/leathers that can be worn from season to season.
If you add great accessories to transform your basics, you can literally have unlimited styling
possibilities. Most importantly, it is all about confidence.
Wear what you are comfortable in and what you feel makes you look good.
If you look good, you feel good. And, that is what fashion is all about.




Besides designing what do you do for relaxing? Are there any
recommendable places for walk, food or entertainment in your city?

I am a big believer in exercising/sports of all kind. There is nothing like a brisk walk on the Hudson
River Walk in NYC to clear your mind and get you re-energized. Contrary to popular belief,
Fashion is a very tough and stressful industry, especially in NYC.
As my former showroom owner said, "It's not playing with Barbies."
So, just being outside and connecting with the outdoors keeps me sane.




Lastly, any message to readers?

If you have a passion for something go for it with all you have on your Heart and Soul.
Never take the answer "no" from anyone or
let anyone think you cannot do something.
Always reach for the stars, and anything is possible!!!

Interview with Pray for Paris

original post can be found at: http://firstlook_b.blog.me/90140162556




Looking at your items makes me feel like going through fashion files at the moment.
They're such fun designs! How did you begin launching Pray for Paris?

Pray for Paris began 6 months ago.
I started it by designing a few t-shirts and then getting them printed
and my friends really liked them so I designed more and it grew from there.




To captivate an audience, what kind of marketing strategy did you use?

Blog is our main source of marketing.
We work with a lot of very famous bloggers in return for them showing off our products.




How do you stay truly unique? Do you push yourself to get inspired and gets
to work all the time?

I just let inspiration come naturally, I don't set deadlines for myself.
If I get 4 ideas in one week, I might get a single one in 3 months after that.




A t-shirt can be worn in so many ways. But I think you'll have a favorite way to wear a tee with?

I love wearing my t-shirts with a fitted blazer and a pair of jeans.




What's your number one passion in life?

My number one passion in life is to expand my fashion brand and to grow
and fluorish into more sectors of the industry.
