As Bubbly as balloons! Adrian Wu Hierarchy of Needs FW 2012

March 14, 2012
Nice weather is not the only thing that is taking over Downtown Toronto, so does World Mastercard Fashion Week!  Yesterday, Joyce invited me to go to Adrian Wu's Hierarchy of Needs Studio Catwalk.  It was my first Fashion Show ever!

The stage was decorated in a simple but cute way.  I can't get over how adorable the balloon trees are.


On to the collection, the theme can be summed up in three words: drapes, polka dots, and bubbles.  Everything is very bubble and cute.  So kudos to the Adrian Wu team who designed such a cute set up that suited the collection so well!

All the models were wearing V for Vendetta masks, which means we didn't get to see what makeup, if any, they're wearing.  But the hair braid on all models look very polished and I wish I could braid like that!  See the back of one of the models:

Love the model's tattoo behind her ear.

Also worth noting are the shoes, which are all from town shoes.  This is a Fall/Winter collection, so the shoes are very winter-ish.  I am quite a fan of suede and tie up booties, already got two pairs in the past season, so I'm excited to be able to wear them again next year!

Oh, so my favourite look out of all the pieces will have to be the navy blue and mustard yellow mini dress:

An even better shot at the braid lol
 I personally like to pair mustard colour with navy a lot, in fact I was wearing that at the show lol.  So this has to be my favourite among the bunch!

I'm not going to talk about his Parisian-and-American-politicians underlying meaning of the collection, because that is kind of confusing, for me at least. Befuddling inspiration aside, there is no doubt that Adrian Wu is a very talented young man.   His signature draping, tucking and pinning dresses are very bubbly cute and full of life.  What people might not know is that he is also quite a cutie lol.

Anyhow, I have so much fun attending my first fashion show in the Toronto World Mastercard Fashion Week!  Even though we were in such hurry, it was worth the rush.

So what's next?  Mélissa Nepton show tomorrow at 8pm!  Everything from her previous collections are whispering "take me home..." in my ears lol.  I can't wait to see what's new for her in Fall/Winter 2012.  And I will definitely be back with more on that.

  3. me too! I guess they had invested in the more durable ones, they seem thicker than the cheapo ones I usually get.  Plus, they probably use a machine for air and stuff.  But I'm sure during the process, there were one or two mishap (pop) lol
