Originality is Always in Fashion

Friday, December 07, 2012

A few months ago, I discussed about how music affects fashion since many designers find music as their most influential inspiration for their creations. Prior to that, I discussed how art and fashion can't live without one or the other. Music, fashion, and art are our daily elements that are intrinsically intertwined, even though they carry a different tune, design, and stroke. Trends in any art form (i.e. music, fashion, art) may come and go, but originality is timeless and unforgettable.

Nary Manivong, New York based fashion designer, has been faced with a few obstacles (i.e. broken childhood, homelessness, and the sometimes cruel, but very competitive world of fashion), yet they haven't deterred him from making his dream into a reality. I find his story to be interesting and inspiring, which is chronicled in his documentary, Dressed.

Manivong creates designs with his idea of a dream woman: one who is sophisticated, confident, and an eclectic music that expresses herself through the clothing that she wears.

He recently unveiled his Spring 2013 Collection at a Stoli party. His pieces have a vintage modern vibe that I find exquisitely elegant, feminine, and flattering.
