suwha. grab your coat and hat, it's fashion friday!

"born in korea, suwha hong traveled between and lived in new york city, korea and parts of new england throughout her childhood. dreamy as a child her favorite pastimes were drawing princess gowns, raiding her mother's pajama drawer for dress options and concocting imaginary tales in her head."

in 2006, after successfully completing law school at cornell, and practicing corporate law for 5 years, suwha "decided to follow her heart-she quit her desk job, got married and and traveled the world with her husband tim before settling in london to pursue a career in design."

i love the london influence in suwha's designs, very audrey hepburn, very classically designed but with a modern twist. and paring one of suwha's hats with any coat, forget about it, you are all set to go anywhere. love the look. need the look. how about you? thoughts on this fashion friday?

what are you up to this weekend? we are actually painting the trim on a friends house for extra money, very relaxing although there's a chance of rain in my part of the world this weekend so we'll see. if it rains, i'll dive into my books for class and get super caught up. enjoy your weekend everyone! :)

Hooray for Fashion Friday! These are AMAZING! I need to get more modern with my posts because I'm missing out! Maybe I'll pair classic with modern but I can't miss anymore of these contemporary beauties!
