 Bianca Luini :Where I See Fashion

There are those who search at length for inspiration, be it for a writing piece, sculpture, or fashion, but then there are artists who look no further than what is right in front of them, finding beauty in everyday objects, colours, and shapes. This week we are highlighting the wonderful blog WISP –– Where I See Fashion by Bianca Luini for her wonderful imagery and abstract view of clothing. The blog curator showcases clothing alongside art pieces with corresponding elements of colour, shape, and layout, with even a single image triggering the creative process for designers, which develops into a whole line of clothing or textile designs.

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.

My sentiments exactly!


I can’t find a SINGLE flaw with It’s Okay, That’s Love. I normally don’t rate a drama 5 stars but look…

that drama was phenomenal. PHENOMENAL. Like, I feel like I’m a better person for have watching that. PERFECT. PERFECT.

Exactly!  I’m so sad it’s finished, but they ended it perfectly.

It’s Okay, It’s Love/It’s Okay, That’s Love

I don’t think I’ve ever posted about any dramas that I’ve watched before, but this one definitely deserves to be talked about.  I’m sure none of my friends have seen it, but maybe some of you have.  It is without a doubt one of my favorites, if not my favorite, out of all of the ones I’ve watched.  The entire focus of the show is fresh and new, which combined with the amazing cast, makes for a special experience.  It takes a very open look at mental illness, the stigma attached to it, and it’s effects.  In the drama, people are not simply dismissed as “crazy people that need fixing.”  Patients are treated with respect and understanding, and it really works to break down the misconceptions surrounding mental illness.  

The chemistry of the cast is beautiful to watch and leaves an impression on you as the episodes go on.  The combination of Sung Dong Il and Lee Kwang Soo is comedic gold, and would make you laugh out loud in even the quietest of places.  The love the leads share is breathtaking and heartbreaking at the same time, but the writers don’t depend on the same stale plot twists to fill time.  You all know them: amnesia, rich mom/dad keeping lovers apart, stalk you until you love me, etc.  I will warn you, the emotional content of the story is heavy and there are a number of things that may be hard for some to watch.  There are some graphic scenes of domestic violence and heavy sadness/pain, so you will need to be prepared for that.

 As the final episode approaches tomorrow, I am ready to see how the story plays out but sad to see such a beautiful drama end.  If you’ve been watching until now, I’m sure you know the feeling.  If you haven’t, please go watch it!  You won’t be sorry (and if you hate it, I don’t care).
