Joce Blake interviews Son Jung Wan

We got the amazing opportunity to meet and chat with the South Korean designer, Son Jung Wan, before her fall collection was displayed for the world to see.

She told us, "This collection was inspired by romance and retro art by using different textures to convey a mood."

The spirit was enthralled by playful and feminine vibes through a soft and futuristic touch. She also shared that she loves being a designer because she enjoys creating collections every year and styling. We got a sneak peek before the show began and we were in awe!

It's safe to say that it's also OK to let your inner rock star shine with bold pieces. Whether it's thigh high boots or a cape, you have no choice but to slay the day.

Socially-Conscious Fashion

We love when brands use their platforms to portray a message. For example, Chromat is one of our faves because not only is it hella all-inclusive of all women but the designer lives to make the world a better place. Chromat designer, Becca McCharen-Tran hedged a new social topic of sustainability. During the show, models donned exotic adornments, reminiscent of Miami Beach where her inspiration derived from. Becca wants us to appreciate the raw of beauty of earth instead of continuing to overconsume it for our modern desires. Above all, Chromat wanted us to be aware of the plastic pollution because it truly effects mother Earth.

Vibrant Coats

Cues from the runway suggest that you ditch that simple black coat for an energetic overcoat. When the temperature drops, your outerwear is how you make a fashion statement so you should make sure you're saying the right thing.

Modesty is a FLY Policy

Modesty led the runways in a simplistic way. From classic silhouettes to flowing separates, there's room to be a stylish minimalist next season. The key is to maintain a neutral color palette with tailored items.

The Color Purple

...And not the classic film. Come this autumn, hues of lavender to plum will dominate the stores and you will be able to snag a popping piece of purple. You can opt for a head to toe monochromatic look or choose accessories for that perfect pop of color.

Prints, Prints and MORE PRINTS!

If you are lacking eclectic prints in your closet, it's time to step it up. Lucky for you, we still have time! We saw so many lush patterns and prints on the runway we are sure that you will have countless ways to rock this trend.
