Last month I participated in ShoptheMag.com campaign in supporting in promoting Asian designers. I have only a limited number of clothing items from Asian designers and limited knowledge of the Asian fashion industry, becase I rarely go to Asia (twice in my life only). However, with the internet, Asian designer clothing are much more accessible.
I sent in the following photos for their campaign. The clutch is from a Hong Kong brand Anteprima. Their handbags are unique in that they are made from gimp string! For a while as a kid, making bracelets out of gimp string was all the rage!

Plus some other photos that I didn’t end up sending in.

Earlier this year I helped my friend on a video project. Korean popstar/singer Brian Joo was landing in Toronto, and information regarding his arrival had leaked (through twitter I believe!). We went to the airport to film his arrival and the crowd of young screaming fans. The most surprising thing was that half of the fans were non-Asian, and it seemed like many were non-Korean as well!
Surprisingly, his English was really good, my friend told me he was born and raised in California, and he was extremely genuinely nice! He took photos with a lot of fans and signed autographs.
Have a good week everyone!
