All The Things That Worry Me

Hello all! I hope that everyone is having a chill Sunday so far. Sorry for being MIA lately. I decided that I needed some time off from digital space and instead of force-writing some posts (even if I do have a million ideas), I decided that I needed a break because I wasn’t in the best of moods to write. (See last post:¬†The Fruits of My Life.) Don’t worry. As negative as the title sounds, I promise that this isn’t a negative post by any means. Think of it as a prelude to everything else that follows in this section of my blog: ‘Writing and Creative Thinking’. Think of it as…because I’m writing, that I am okay. After all, I am sharing something with you. ūüôā I have had this idea…these ideas, for quite some time now and I’m happy to announce that I will be writing an unlimited number¬†of posts. I guess you can call it a¬†series because I’ll be numbering each post as the series goes on, for as long as there’s something …

Talk: How I feel about the proposed ‘See Now, Buy Now’ structure

Article/Source of Discussion (but not limited to):* How will ‘See Now, Buy Now’ fashion shows affect beauty brands? – Fashionista Karl Lagerfeld on the State of Fashion: ‘It’s a Mess’ – BoF Burberry announces a See Now/Buy Now system for new collections – NY Times Gucci rejects See Now Buy Now fashion calendar – Vogue The Current State of Fashion – See Now, Buy When? – The Fashion Law *There are many, many more articles surrounding this debate¬†as of now.   Where many Creative Directors have been coming and going in the past year, the possible new proposal of a See-Now, Buy-Now¬†operation has certainly rattled the Fashion Industry more than ever. This is a new type of visionary that isn’t just affecting one brand but effectively, all of the luxury market even if only a few have agreed to it. Notably, Burberry and Tom Ford have taken to the idea and already confirmed that they’d adhere to the calendar starting from next season. But as the question goes: how will it even work? It’s a …

Talk: When should one launch a fashion label?

Article/Source of Discussion:¬†Why you shouldn’t launch a label straight out of school – BoF If there is one fashion article that I have been waiting to read, then this may well be it. Fashion can be taken as a very vain subject and understandably so, even from the professionals themselves. Though¬†I am not necessarily talking about the same vainness between the average person and the Fashion Professional when regarding the subject. By its very definition, it concerns the overly fuss and high opinion of one’s appearance (although everyone would know how subjective that is). Immediately, fashion becomes vain, but only to the point that¬†one allows it to be; failing to meet clothing with an intelligence, a core meaning that justifies the whole fashion label, its heart and how it runs. For once, the truth is spilt out that I think everyone knew but didn’t sought out to talk about, because fashion is vain. The media, the fans, the consumers will speak of the latest looks but not necessarily of how the business runs (maybe with …

“I will do it tomorrow”

I am sure that the title sounds almighty familiar. It is also the very definition of procrastination. A few posts ago, I had talked about the book (and film) American Psycho written by Brett Easton Ellis and one particular theme: Emptiness (which can be found here). I don’t know why but I love dark themes and have really been getting into them lately. Yesterday, I also watched Nightcrawler, which by the way, is an AMAZING film. So, as like my recent posts, I’ll tell you a story (sort of). I bought an academic diary at the beginning of July. Strangely enough, the diary corresponded to the next week – it was like it was meant to be. And then, I had an epiphany. I realised it had been a year or almost a year since I had wrote in such¬†diary and planned my days here and there like I had almost always done whilst in education. I forgot how good it felt to tick things off the list and to get something done because it …

The future of relationships

I was going to name this post “things I don’t really understand”, but there’s just TOO many things that I don’t understand. I have only begun thinking about this recently. It may or may not appeal to where you are right now, but hear me out for a moment. Because I feel that in this generation that we’re living in, a sense of family and companionship is being lost. So it becomes quite worrying actually, how the next generation will pan out. In particular, I want to talk about the use of the term “partner” that is increasingly being used. Honestly, I dislike the term – the meaning is lacking and quite unromantic to me. It’s crazy even for me to describe it that way since my close friends know that I loathe public affection, because I grant the excess as, well, too much to handle in public really. I cringe at the sight of it…but that’s just me. I asked two of my close friends what partner really means, and its distinction from wife …
