The Art of Clothing Design - Anna Sui

Anna Sui is my all time favorite fashion designer!

I am a sucker for layers of color, pattern and textures as well as mixing timeless pieces to make something unique. She has mastered this skill. Her designs mirror bits street fashion as well as an array of  prints and designs that pay homage to the past.

I am always amazed at her ability to come up with new and exciting pieces in each collection! Here are some photos of some of her past designs I adore.

 Here are photos from Anna's 2012 spring collection! Gorgeous use of color and the classic and flattering lines of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Anna plays with waistlines, killer accessories and a bold mix of texture to create well balanced pieces. She also uses nature to ad a special twist with delicate floral prints and unexpected butterflies peeking out on leg wear. I have to admit I have never seen anyone else make the "socks and sandals" thing work so well :) The combinations used marry the shoe and sock as one piece.

 I hope you enjoyed this post. To learn more about Anna Sui visit her site:

  4. Such a beautiful dress! I love your fabric manipulation! I have to add "painting fabric" to my list of things to try. Thanks for being so inspiring.
