Focus Taiwan featured six up and coming fashion designers from Taiwan during the S/S 2012 Spring collections of New York Fashion Week. The designers---some educated at the top design schools ...all showed three looks apiece that were of the highest quality of workmanship.
The looks varied---but were all very feminine elegant-an Asian aesthetic fused with western wearbility---not hard edge trendy that would look good on only a few.
We got a few pics backstage prior to the presentation...credits include Nails by Pattie Yankee for Dashing Diva, MAC Cosmetics and Hair by the Vince Smith Hair Experience.
