Hello pretty people, welcome to my blog! Just so we’re clear, here’s a little write-up about it:
Konichiwear hosts the fashion-related musings of one Dominique Tiu, a self-proclaimed stylist-blogger. Konichiwear is also an opportunity for Dominique to talk more about herself (if it isn’t obvious enough). Unabashedly. Which is, by the way, a nasty habit of hers. But don’t fret, Dominique is not completely evil, she’ll make sure to focus more on fashion and clothes, a little bit less on herself, at least once a week or more (though she will probably just fawn over Rodarte or Balmain’s latest collections).
Dominique will most likely make funny or dry comments here and there; she’ll also probably snark a bit about the fashion industry or celebrities but rest assured, she will not push you to hold the same opinions as she does nor will she make personal attacks. Not anymore, at least. Just remember to maintain proper netiquette wihin Konichiwear. To know more about Dominique, check the site’s about page. Better yet, visit Konichiwear more frequently. If you’re not interested, that’s fine, but just so you know (a rather blatant way of swaying you), there will be monthly contests with awesome giveaways so you better hang on!
First things first, I’m not an Asiano-phile (or whatever the correct term is, I’m sure you get the gist)–or at least, I don’t think I’m that obsessed, yet. It’s not to say I’m not interested however because, duh, this blog?–is a testament to my fascination with Asian Fashion. I mean, how can I not? There’s just something so unique and so pretty with how Asians or East Asians, in particular, dress up. It’s not to say that East Asians are more avant-garde than their Western counterparts, but you know, just refreshingly different. It’s also not like they create their own trends–or well, in a way they do, but they don’t discount Western trends. Instead, they synthesize it with their own culture. Besides, I’m Asian so I guess it’s apt enough to put my style under the Asian Fsahion umbrella, right?
So anyway, for this shoot with Photographer: Tricia Gosingtian, we focused on two universal trends: Florals and the color Pink. We upped it a bit by mixing cutesy Asian elements like: exaggerated satin bows, Japanese otaku hair buns, and cute accessories.
