A maze-like runway with deep moody lighting gave the spectators a significant amount of time to view each item even though they moved quite quickly.

The collection supposedly inspired by Anna Wintour and the chic working-girl type was full of black on bright silks as a dominant theme, as well as the Chinese art of embellishment,  cinched-waisted coats, white-work, fur and embroidered silks, all set to a deep purple tone that ended in a final wave of a single blue flowing gown. Shiatzy Chen is considered the “Chanel” brand of Taiwan, and focuses on luxury and aesthetics.

Fashion week Fun!

Half the fun of fashion week is seeing all the fashionistas and cavaliers strutting around. Some take themselves VERY seriously, some don’t have a serious hair on their head, but 100% of them are fabulous to look at. And fashion week is a sort of oggle yourself silly free-for-all, where anything goes!
