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

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

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!!!

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

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.
