As much as I am in denial about the end of summer, I do steadfastly adore fall fashion. The coats, boots, and layering possibilities allow for endless concoctions of chic imaginative ensembles.  This season, I find myself hopelessly drawn to beautiful embroidery and brocade creations with a nod to the far east, harking back to ancient imperial China.  Both Proenza Schouler and Dries Van Noten showed stunning creations in this vein.  Simply magnificent.

However I am drawn to these beautiful creations, I do suffer a moment’s hesitation as a person of Asian descent … Would it be overkill looking like I parade about in my ancestral threads of centuries past?  Then again, it only takes a glance at the persuasive modern silhouettes to remove all doubt.
