Vivienne Tam  New York Fashion Week Fall 2013

Fashion Ledge - Vivienne Tam
NY Designer Vivienne Tam, who is from China, kicked off the Chinese New Year during NYFW with her AW13 collection. She got inspired by the world around her with heavy influences stemming from pop culture and embracing everyday life. Front row included Carmen Electra and Angela Simmons.

Dominated by red and black, the collection fused non-nonsense frocks with punky elements like exposed zippers and the use of leather. Plaids and enlarged houndstooth patterns added a unique quality to seasonal fabrics like wool. A president Obama print made a statement of style mixed with politics, as did one featuring script penned by Chairman Mao. Fitted feminine forms became more serious as ensembles consisting of turtleneck paired with pegged pants. The aesthetic was freshened when skirted at the knee. Hair styled with edge, and black lipstick helped enliven the spirit of the pieces.
