MORE ABOUT SEMIR X CJ YAO

Chinese fashion brand SEMIR joins hands with Chinese independent designer brand C.J.YAO using the new generation of Chinese design language to interpret the fashion and attitude of the current young Chinese.

What is the attitude of young Chinese to fashion today? Instead of speculating and advocating for itself, SEMIR, which has always been dedicated to serving mass consumers, specially sent fashion observers to the streets to personally interview and listen to fashion voices of young people. Based on this, SEMIR found that in the Internet age, the emerging generation is keen on high technology. They are online all the time every day, they have an open international perspective and strong national sentiment; they’re eager to speak for their own culture. In their subconscious, fashion is a mixture of the East and West, with a strong definition of self-attitude at the same time.

The fashion element discovered by SEMIR this time is inspired by the spark from the collision of ideological trends of eastern and western contexts, which is presented by the mind-blowing and uniq ue Chinese and English expressions. Like the emoji package, they are the popular expressions of those young people who are keen on online socializing. These unique vocabularies are the symbols of popularity of Chinese culture in the world, and also provide an opportunity for the collaboration between SMEIR and C.J.YAO— to bring the combination of these humorous Chinese English and fashion to the world.

The Low Carb Alternative to Rice, Quinoa and Couscous!

Sticking to a healthy low-carb diet isn’t always easy. Good intentions don’t always fit our busy schedules. But Fullgreen is hoping to make healthy eating more convenient with their exciting new range of Cauli Rice & Vegi Rice.

Many vegans resort to eating unhealthy meals because they have a hard time finding simple, healthy meals. Instead of reaching for the bag of chips, try Fullgreen! Fullgreen’s Cauli Rice and Veggie Rice are lower in carbs and have up to 85% fewer calories than grains – such as rice, couscous, and even quinoa! And they’re ready in 2½ minutes – making them a quick and easy way to add more low-carb veg to your diet. Fullgreen products are made with only ‘positive ingredients’; things that contribute to a healthy diet.

Cauli Rice and Vegi Rice are lower in carbs and have up to 85% fewer calories than grains – such as rice, couscous, and even quinoa! And they’re ready in 2½ minutes – making them a quick and easy way to add more low-carb veg to your diet.

Fullgreen products are made with only ‘positive ingredients’; things that contribute to a healthy diet. They’re filled with non-GMO veg, they’re Gluten-free, Preservative-free and Vegan. Shouldn’t all food be made this way?

Amazingly, there’s no need to refrigerate or freeze these handy pouches. Unlike most riced veggies they don’t require freezing or refrigeration. Their shelf-stable pouches last for ages in your kitchen cupboard – even though they contain zero preservatives! Fullgreen believes mealtimes should be enjoyable, nutritious.

Recipe:

Low Carb, Indian Pilaf Riced Cauliflower

Authentic Indian Pilaf spices make this ‘riced cauliflower’ dish the essential low-carb accompaniment to Indian food. It also works great with grilled fish, meat, or roasted vegetables. But our favorite way to eat it is cold, as a ‘grain-free’ salad – with a light, yogurt dressing.

KIM TIZIANA ROTTMULLER at New York Fashion Week

German designer 
leads us through a spiritual story for collection ‘Oblivion’,
taking inspiration from a seductive witch,
a symbol for our transcendental self and inner magical power.
Lilac,
the color for spirituality brings light into the collection
whereas black is used to submit the unknown,
mysterious darkness.
Experiments with volume are revealed
through oversized hoods and layers of ruffles.
A stand out look –
a candy pink oversized woolen jumper
embellished with mysterious tarot cards
that weave in and out of the knit.

Living in A Fairytale – Self Portrait SS19 at New York Fashion Week

So excited to be invited to attend Self Portrait SS19 NYFW show at Spring Studios!

It was an amazing show, and I already know that Self Portrait never makes me feel bored. I personally love their dresses so much. Both my graduation exhibition’s opening and Marriage Registration, I chose Self Portrait to wear. Of course I have gotten so many compliments for the beautiful dresses.

This year, Self Portrait continues its modern fairytale style, but adds more bright colors. I love them and looking forward to having them when they are on market.

A lot of great influencers were invited, including Olivia Palermo, Aimee Song, Danielle Bernstein and Caroline Daur.
