Yesterday in Milan, Gucci Celebrated 90 years of LUXE. Taking cue from 70’s style icon Angelica Houston with echos of 40’s screen sirens, the collection imbibed saturated hues of deeps blues, purples, and gold in rich fabrics of silk, chiffons, furs and python! Glam never looked so good!
Guess who we caught up with right after the Carolina Herrera show… Joe Zee, Creative Director of ELLE USA.
I met Joe over a decade ago in Hong Kong when he was still a freelance stylist shooting a fashion story for W magazine. He held a casting session and all of the top girls in town went to the “go see”. I accompanied a good friend of mine, May Yee as she presented her portfolio.
While i was waiting, this fabulous asian man started chatting with me. He had the most contagious energy. So positive and full of life! I had no idea who he was then…
Fast forward to two days ago, I’m in New York Fashion week covering this seasons collections for Runway TV Asia and lo and behold, there was that wonderful, energetic, positive, asian man again!!! Right away, I went up to him and reminded him of how we met back in the day… he remembered!
Ofcourse I wanted to interview him right there and then and he graciously agreed!
We chatted about the collections, his life as creative director, and his new show, All on the Line. On the show, he helps struggling fashion designers with their line and help turn their business around. Kind of like a “Fashion Fairy God Mother” if you will. If you’re lucky, he may even come to you! :) Make a wish!
All on the line premieres March 29, 2011 on Sundance Channel
“It’s about poking fun at luxury and decadence and this idea of stereotypical wealth,” said Alexander Wang, walking us through his upcoming fall collection. Wang is playing with elements of that indulgent…

Jewelry Designer, yoga instructor, and my dear friend, Jessica Robinson continually inspires me every time I see her. First of all, she is an amazing jewelry designer with her own line (avail. online and in select boutique stores worldwide), but best of all, she is my partner in crime whenever i go to NYC! She is always showing me the coolest places, to shop, play, eat and travel + she’s just so much fun!!! She is definitely my soul sista!

“For what it’s worth: It’s never too late, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have strength to start all over again.”—Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Before you put your thoughts and energy into getting more, ask yourself this. Are you making the most of all the good and valuable things you already have? The fastest way to experience more abundance in your life is to more fully realize and appreciate the abundance that is already yours.
If you complain about what you don’t have, that pushes away the abundance that’s already yours. Instead, decide to be thankful, and to put that thankfulness into action. Demonstrate your gratitude by choosing to make the most of what you have.
Make the most of your skills, of your knowledge, of your time and experience. Truly value and make the most of your relationships with others. Make the most of this very moment that you have right now, and of every moment that comes to you.
Make the most of your deepest, most meaningful dreams. Make the most of what you love about life. A life of richness is not a number on your bank statement; it is a decision you make in every moment.
With every day, every situation, every encounter, every thought, every feeling and every dream, use the opportunity to make the most of what you have. Give your best to life, in the big moments and in the little moments. Make the most of it all, and with it all you will bring great richness to your world.
