Somewhere in between meetings, shows and acting like a tourist I had the chance to finally meet Patricia Chang, the New York based designer who I did a post on here a few months ago in her ridiculously beautiful and heavily sequin embellished masterpiece.
Sometimes you’ll come across a few designers who you immediately know are destined for great things, and Patricia is one of them in my books. Her new SS 12/13 collection has to be one of my favourites I’ve seen all year and I love how she’s mixed classic pieces with a youthful and quirky edge. Drawing inspiration from a coat she constructed for herself one night, Patricia was so inspired by the robotic theme that she redesigned her entire collection.
I particularly fell in love with this pastel two-toned sorbet dress with a white collar and yellow robot buttons. Actually, I fell in love with the entire collection so please don’t be surprised if you see me wearing more of her pieces in my posts to come! Her line is too perfect for Fashion Week and I feel so lucky to be able to wear and support a designer I truly believe in. I just love how many people comment on her pieces and then squeal when they realise the tiny details are in fact robots. Oh wait, the squealing is probably coming from me as I fall in love a little bit more every time I see her pieces.
So much more to post so stay tuned! I’m currently in Milan for MFW after having a 4:30am start in London to make it to the Gucci show at 2pm the same day. So this is the craziness they call fashion week! I’m starting to feel a little bit like a robot myself. I suppose if it’s the sorbet kind then I’m happy.
