Dress to Impress

I saw a post on FB about the wedding dress Jennifer Lawrence wore as Katniss Everdeen, the character she plays in Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It was apparently designed by a young and upcoming 28 year old Tex Saverio; a fashion designer from Indonesia, who won the Mercedes-Benz Asia Fashion Award in 2005. Saverio’s designs have […]

It’s Almost Halloween: Got a costume?

Today’s post is about doing it yourself. I know that as an architecture student you’ve got major craftiness oozing out of your pores. With this fall’s Beaux Arts Ball coming up, have you started brainstorming yet? For a time I lacked the right spirit and admit that for a few years in a row, I […]


To usher in a new age of personal solidarity, I bring you this blog post to celebrate the mantra ‘fake it till you make it.’ A recent internet dérive led me from high boutique to the far more obtainable Taiwanese knock-off.

An excellent strategy for spicing up a plebian space and/or dizzifying you into buying more […]

SAMURAIS!: Ancient Armor meets High Fashion

A few nights ago I went to the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston – Wednesday nights are free for the public (as an MIT student I always get in free )- to see the Samurai exhibit. All I can say is that you absolutely have to go see it. I had no idea […]

MEN (AND WOMEN) IN BLACK: our preoccupation with non-color

A recent conversation with Anon got me thinking about our preoccupation (as architects) with black clothing. We’re all familiar with the pervasiveness of the all-black architect’s attire. I’m pretty sure my instructor last semester, Meejin Yoon, never wore anything that wasn’t black to studio. I guess that means getting dressed in the morning is pretty […]
