Adrian Wu resort collection launch event

Lesson number 1: Fashionistas are always fashionably late.

If there's one thing I should have learned from attending fashion events before, it's that attendees are always late and events never start on time.  Though guests slowly drizzled in, it didn't stop the film screening and launch of Adrian Wu's resort collection from being a hit.  With collection dresses on display at the venue, guests curiously poked at the pieces, wondering how Adrian's signature ruffled complexities were created.

The dresses were patterned with an abstract maze-like design, most fashioned with Adrian's unique ruffled stitching.  One dress seemed rather normal in comparison where it was fashioned in a straight cut- that is, until a waist-high side slit was discovered upon a closer look.

Accompanying the collection was a fashion film produced by Cloud in the Sky Studios.  The film features an alluring mystique isolation and sublime setting on top of a mountain.  In this great mix of fashion as art, it made for the perfect launch of a collection.

Me and PR Intern, Laura Kidd, trying to pull off Adrian's signature pout.
It's not at very many fashion events that you can do a kissy face. Um, it seems to work a lot better when I'm with friends and not in front of a media wall. Sticking to smiling, it is! Did I mention that my dress was $10 from Costa Blanca? I'll tell you why. I had the most awkward wires poking into me all night. It was probably worth it for one night's wear though.

And a couple of photos and the video of the resort collection:



More photos from the Adrian's resort collection to come.  Plus, an interview feature with him where we talk controversy.  Now who doesn't like that? 

Thanks to Ming Wu for photos from the event!

  2. Girl I went to this fashion show back in April and they told me it would start at 630, so I all rushed home from work to change and make it there on time...and literally sat there until 830 when it started! I was so annoyed for the first part of the show!!
