FWQ: joey samson

a very joey samson collection. but that's not to say it was predictable. there were many surprises, especially when the model turned around. she looked good coming and going. impeccable tailoring, but not stiff. the fit was flawless, thanks to seams, darts, and panels in all the right places, hugging and skimming curves where they, well, curve. all those intricate little details, which you have to see up close, made the outfits just that much more special. the palette of black and gray was classic joey. the leggings gave the outfits extra edge and those shoes! apparently they were made by janylin—are they available in the stores?? and no joey samson show would be complete without menswear. high-waist trousers, leggings under shorts, skintight cropped pants, short-sleeved blazers, and peek-a-boo shirts, anyone?

HHMM. plagiarism ito! nakakaloka.
Ms. Liza, whats your comment on local designers who "copies" designs of foreign designers and pass them as their own originals. im not saying its samson, but some local designers have been doing that since the 70s. except inno who is very original in his designs, does his research and really is the pied piper of local fashion. no wonder he is patronized by the zobels and the foreses.

in fashion, especially these days, it's very difficult to come up with any design that is truly original. even international designers come up with collections that are derivative of or inspired by other more senior or more directional designers. and they are not ashamed to admit it because the collection becomes a tribute of sorts to their "idols" who have influenced their point of view and creative process, whether directly or subtly. it's all part and parcel of fashion—as long as the outfits are not exact copies of original designs (google yves saint laurent sues ralph lauren).

as for leanne's "leaf" design? puh-leeez it's not like she invented that...

Overall the clothes look okay. Not mind-blowingly fabulous, but okay. I am however, seriously hating that fingerless gloves look.
