Invitation for Marie-Antoinette Fashion Show Paris, France - 4 October 2015 -- La Mode by GV Miao

 

Marie-Antoinette pre Paris fashion show photoshoot (HK) 1

Background of La Mode by GV Miao ‘s Fashion Project of the Year:
Hong Kong-based fashion blogger/marketer Vicki Victoire (pseudonym: Gwen Vikkey Miao) of La Mode by GV Miao – an Oriental Perspective founded La Mode by GV Miao’s Fashion Project of the Year in 2014 which embodies her blogging mission to help her favorite emerging design talents from all over the world, especially Asia gain a foothold in the top global fashion capitals that she has set herself when she first blogged 5 years ago. This much-anticipated annual project kicked off with the co-organized New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza 2014 – fashion show last September
featuring 4 young, up-and-coming Asian/Hong Kong designers representing the categories of couture, jewelry, handbag and millinery, which finished successfully with great feedback received from the public. Unlike other fashion shows at the commercialized fashion weeks, all invitations to designers to participate in La Mode by GV Miao’s shows are not made in a random manner; GV Miao herself solely handpicks every participating designer whose collection showcased reflects her personal taste in fashion as a blogger.
For this year’s La Mode by GV Miao’s Fashion Project of the Year, GV Miao and her designer duo
composed of Suu Ho of 1.618 Couture and Angel Wong of Angel Wong Image will be at Tiffany’s
Fashion Week Paris Season 4, a platform for future design stars around the world to shine on the runway at Paris Fashion Week in the form of competition on October 4 – as the headlining designer to kick off the opening show with their alluring, sumptuous, and well-thought-out from head to toe reine mythique : l’éternelle épanouissante Marie-Antoinette (Faraway Queen: the Forever Blooming Marie-Antoinette) collection. Initiated and themed by GV Miao and brought to life by the handpicked Hong Kong couturier Suu Ho teamed up with milliner Angel Wong, this Marie-Antoinette-inspired collection, painstakingly created and with its own unique character, is the modern interpretation of the everlasting fashion icon of the 18th century Europe from an Asian perspective, the glamest and exoticest representation like nothing else paying tribute to the legendary last queen of France.

About reine mythique : l’éternelle épanouissante Marie-Antoinette collection (Faraway Queen:
the Forever Blooming Marie-Antoinette) Delicately crafted from silk chiffon and perfectly tailored, the 12 exquisitely embellished and hand embroidered corset gowns with indulgent layers of sassy lace and tulle meet their respective unexpectedly striking, whimsical, and extravagant fascinators maximally adorned with elaborate ornaments, feathers, and beaded blossoms that remind the Petit Trianon, impeccably paired and matched and ornate jewels to reach unprecedented levels of sheer ethereal beauty and decadent luxury.
The 12 heavenly looks classified into 3 distinct groups convey a multi-faceted Marie-Antoinette: an innocent, vulnerable, and pastel young princess; a majestic queen in her expensive leather pannier dress that swishes and sways with her every move; and an enchanting and desirable social butterfly rocking every late night party at the Château de Versailles. Shades from cream to black passing through greyish mauve, soft pink, aqua, lemon and a touch of gold glitter for the color palette.

Profile of Vicki Victoire (pseudonym: Gwen Vikkey Miao), founder/blogger of La Mode by GV
Miao – an Oriental Perspective; founder of La Mode by GV Miao ‘s Fashion Project of the Year;
co-organizer of New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza 2014 – fashion show
Vicki Victoire, known by her pseudonym Gwen Vikkey Miao, a fashion blogger/marketer and now also a fashion show organizer of Hong Kong origin first started her blog La Mode by GV Miao – an Oriental Perspective in 2010. Her multicultural background has exposed her to various lifestyles and different attitudes towards fashion while strengthened her ties with the motherland and her pride of being a Hongkonger.

Having worked in visual merchandising and marketing for the brands such as Ralph Lauren and TSE New York, GV Miao has been trained to have a good eye on fashion and luxury goods. She doesn’t believe in fashion as an individual entity; it has got to be related to history and culture. She is especially keen on the design inspired by oriental aesthetics. Being conscious of her Chinese heritage, she tends tomake her blog unique and genuine by specializing herself in oriental-inspired fashion with eastern motifs cross-fertilizing western styles which brings an exotic feel to it.

GV Miao has set a mission and vision for her blog to bring any potential Asian designers to the world’s attention. Considering that their lack of financial resources is always a major obstacle for many rising independent designers to moving their career goals one step forward, she feels an urge to spread the word about the best new talents and young designers from Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, etc., and make their name known and their works seen.

That paved the way for the launch of 2014’s debut New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza – fashion show organized in the name of her blog under La Mode by GV Miao’s Fashion Project of the Year.

Designer bio of Suu Ho, couturier & founder of 1.618 Couture:
Suu Ho, Hong Kong born couturier specialized in corset making and founder of 1.618 Couture, studied fashion textiles and graduated at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication in London, UK.

After graduation, she worked for world renowned designers such as Julien MacDonald and ThorntonBregazzi at Preen. These precious experiences have served as a great inspiration to her design.

Suu launched her brand 1.618 Couture in 2009. Her one-of-a-kind couture gowns and bridal dresses are the perfect blend of modern elegance and European classiness.

Designer Angel Wong: Milliner and Founder of Angel Wong Image:
Based in Hong Kong, Angel Wong founded Angel Wong Image 10 years ago in 2005, also one of the 4 featured designers in the debut New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza 2014 – fashion show in September 2014 representing the category of millinery. She plays a double role as professional makeup artist and self-taught headpiece/accessory designer. She perceives and interprets aesthetics in a comprehensive way, which makes her pursue creating harmony of the total look. She is good in designing superiorly crafted large-scale fashion pieces exuding a sense of elegance and sophistication yet fun.

Fashion Blogger to Follow-Heather Hahn From Los Angeles

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 12.42.27 PM

NAME: Heather Hahn
WEBSITE/BLOG: Chiffon Souffle – http://chiffonsouffle.com
CITY + COUNTRY: Los Angeles, California

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

What overall inspired me to start my blog, was that I actually started out blogging, for wardrobe stylists,when I was being an assistant stylist at the time, right before I started college.
I wanted to have a place where I could have sort of a ‘diary’ to record my thoughts, and share things that inspired me in everyday life.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

The story and inspiration behind my blog name ‘Chiffon Souffle’, came up random. I was living in West Hollywood at the time, right off of Robertson Blvd, and there are A TON of cute little cafes there.

I wanted to it have the work ‘Souffle’ in it, because I am obsessed with those, and I love food, and randomly came up with “Chiffon”, for my love of fashion. I don’t even know what brought that about.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

What makes my  blog stand out is that it is not just a foodie blog, or a fashion blog, it’s a lifestyle blog that is geared towards topics in everyday life.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

My signature style is very weird, and random. I like to be chic, yet edgy at the same time. It’s like looking pretty, and wearing a pair of converse, if that makes sense.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

There are a lot of fashion designers who I idolize, but I don’t really have a #1 fashion icon :), I like to be me, and dress the way that I want to, without following ‘trends’. Your own personal style is what makes you unique as a person.

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

My favorite local designers would have to be Rebecca Mink of Mink Shoes, she designs an amazing vegan line, and Sara Horne who designs ‘ Sara Horne Jewelry ‘.

 

FAVORITE WEBSITES?

My favorite websites would have to be:
Who What Wear
WWD ( Womens Wear Daily )

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

This sequin Aidan Mattox dress that I have <3 When it’s appropriate to wear sequins, i’ll wear it. Hopefully soon.

 

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

I don’t really read too much, so i’m not sure of a favorite book.

My favorite movie would have to still be 22 Jump Street, it’s so funny.

My favorite band would have to be HOLYCHILD & their new song “Running Behind”, it’s everything.

 

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR?

Hm! What would I wear, that’s a tough question. I really love DVF & Marc Jacobs

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

Hozier- “Take Me To Church”

 

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

I really love “The Man Repeller”, it’s hilarious and the editor is brilliant.

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

In high school, in the snow, wearing UGGS and a jean mini skirt with a tan. I guess it was a “Ohio” thing at the time, i’m from there.

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

– Don’t follow trends

– Dress how you want to dress

-Wear things that will make you happy and comfortable in your own skin. Don’t care what anyone else thinks

Fashion Blogger to Follow- Melinda Fleming FROM Los Angeles

5-eWwTrzHWfCF4U_e99_M4pe38lSog8vkyh5HdGMLB4
NAME: Melinda Fleming
WEBSITE/BLOG: Curated Cool – http://curatedcool.com/
CITY + COUNTRY: Los Angeles, USA

We could not have been more excited to get to know Melinda Fleming of Curated Cool. She is one stylish and fashion forward lady! Not to mention she lives and travels all over the world. Total global fashion girl. We think you will love her taste, genuineness and energy as much as we do.

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

I wanted to do a business online, like a creative outlet not even knowing it would be a blog. Then one day I had an “ah-ha” moment. People had always commented on my style and taste and would always ask me ” Where did you get that?” So I started finding unique accessories and decor pieces. Then in December 2013 I started doing fashion outfit ideas, because I posted a picture of me wearing something on social media and got such a response – That became a game changer when I did that.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

Ha! I tried to be so brainiac and serious about the name in the beginning, then I just thought about what was my message? A curated collection of really cool stuff. So I put two words together and there we go!

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

People have commented how clean and minimal it is. And that’s always been the aesthetic I’m going for. So hopefully I’m succeeding at that goal. I know who I am and I focus on a style thats about a way of life, not just a look for the day.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

Clean lines, minimal with edge, and high-end vintage. No two days are the same, so I dress very much in the moment and how I feel. I never worry about trends. If anything I run the other way. I find it more interesting when somebody can say “Where did you get that” without recognizing who the designer is.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

I’m gonna go with Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen. Since they are a duo I’m counting them as one. They seem to just get it.

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

-The Row
-Rodarte
-Band Of Outsiders

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

An vintage Italian weekender bag. It’s got the mix of perfect color and patina and I get so many comments on it.

MIa5h_hvdmAICqmpUzT7ioHs18kyaXAMoARRPIA-9V4

 

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

Book – The Little Prince

Movie – “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” because all the outfits were designed by Givenchy and were simply spectacular.

Band – The Black Keys

 

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR?

Yes please!! I’d wear my favorite beaded vintage jacket, burgundy leather skinny pants, stiletto booties, and a massive clutch bag. I’m a sucker for a clutch. I like tension in an outfit as I find the opposites attract and help bring a look together.

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

Daft Punk’s “Digital Love” – I rock out every single time.

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

Wearing stilettos on a grassy field. Your heels will sink into the grass guaranteed!

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

1. Wear what works for your body shape.
2. Less is always more.
3. Confidence is sexier than any outfit. Remember that you wear the clothes, don’t let the clothes wear you.

 

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

Fresh pineapple chunks.
