GFW Sponsors AKM Mode: Asian American Designing

GFW 2012 is all about stimulating connections and bringing people together. That’s why we were so excited to be one of the sponsors for the UF Kaleidoscope Month fashion show! MODE: Asian Americans Designing Fashion featured three fabulous designers from across the country, bringing Asian American culture and fashion together. The night kicked off with the line Ann Hoang by Ann Hoang. The Texan designer showcased her classy line of cocktail dress and gowns. A lot of the designs had subtle cutouts that make the looks incredibly sexy yet sophisticated at the same time. Our favorite look was the bright orange jumpsuit with the open back—perfect for any Gator fashionista. Next down the runway came Homme by Dahae Kim. Male models strode down the runway in dark shirts and jackets with menacing (but hot!) stares. Kim said she was inspired by the dark, psychotic side of life, and she designs menswear because it’s more challenging for her. Personally, we’d design for men just to stare at them all day…

The show came to a conclusion with Thai Nguyen Couture. The ex-BCBG associate designer specializes in evening gown creations and boy, were they gorgeous. Nguyen’s collection featured sheer fabrics in gold, pale pinks, red and black. His intricate and sexilicious (yes, that’s a word) evening gowns left us drooling and panting for more. GFW was so thrilled to be a part of such an incredible event, and we look forward to being a part of it again next year!
