This week I have had the honor of attending Bangkok Couture Fashion Week thanks to Siam Paragon and Fide Multimedia, and their wonderful team, especially Kreingsak Tantiphipop.
I arrived in a black and silver Mimi Illouz Couture gown, Lanvin Stilettos, a Alexander Wang clutch, and to top it off; Louis Vuitton bunny ears headpiece. I walked into the elevator taking up the space of 3 people in my gown, with people staring me down and asking to take pictures with me on their iPhone. I was the last to get out of the elevator at the Royal Paragon Hall, to a red carpet running all the way from the elevator to the entrance with men in suits standing in neat soldier-like rows on each side of the carpet. Surrounded by every photographer, journalist, and fashion icon Bangkok could possibly have, I felt like nothing short of a modern day princess.
The evening began with a cocktail reception, with a gigantic oversized lamp for a bar. Absolute Elixir was served in every possible form, and waiters in tuxedos served drinks, ore d’houvres, and truffles and bonboniers in Cosmopolitan cups.
After the reception we were escorted to the catwalk where I was lucky enough to have a view from the front row. The catwalk was covered by white metal cage-like byzantine domes. Dresses of hounds tooth and ‘McQueenesque’ 3-Dimensional butterflies came down the catwalk accessorized by butterfly facemasks.
What do you guys think? I am already really looking forward to attend next year!
I was recently invited to Bangkok International Couture Fashion Week. I’m really excited to see my first fashion show in Asia after moving here in August (!)
I woke up Saturday morning in my new bed, in my new room, in my new house. I was determined to go and explore Bangkok. I have been away for almost 8 years and it still feels like home, but so much is different. I put on the first thing I could find, threw on some mascara, grabbed my Giacomorelli Loafers and called a taxi. We went to China Town, which I didn’t expect to find anything but I didn’t mind… I just wanted to see everything again. We walked around for hours through little tiny streets flooded with Kitschy headpiece shops, to small milliner boutiques, and unexpected glistening jewelry boutiques. I was surprisingly and unpredictably mesmerized to find all these beautiful things, I was almost bewildered to the point where I didn’t know what to buy (That never happens. Ever.). It’s a good thing it started to rain, because I would have never left. These are n my favorites in my Jewelry collection at the moment
I miss winter. I think it’s my favorite season (Says the girl who lives in Thailand when its hot all year long, maybe that’s why) also fashion-wise. If I had to choose which season fashion month to go to it will always be Fall/Winter.
My last outfit post was also inspired by Moschino, I absolutey adore them. I had to have the jacket but I couldn’t find it online anywhere, and there is no Moschino in Israel. Well, there is no anything in Israel. I made the jacket myself with my mother, we altered it a little bit so it could be worn in hotter months, like the beginning of Spring for example. All the jewels and the chains on the sleeves are necklaces, and earrings we broke apart other than a few we brought at the Designer Fabrics store. I am super happy with the result, I love this jacket! What do you think?

When I think about resort collections, I think vacation. Those of you who know me know I think through every detail of my outfit and I take forever to get ready. However, vacation for me is different. I like things that look effortless but still look amazing. Think Anna dello Russo by day and Elin Kling by vacation!
This resort season I was disappointed and unimpressed with most of my favorite designers and I loved things I normally wouldn’t wear any other season. I am an over the top person but vacation is vacation, even vacation from myself.
My favorite resort collection 2013 was Valentino, I wanted everything! These are the Top 10 Designers I chose and the Top 2 looks from everyone of them, I had a hard time choosing my 10th one, because there were so many great collections. Other collections worth seeing are Jason Wu, Elizabeth & James, The Row, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schoeler, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Preen, 3.1 Phllip Lim, Salvatore Ferragamo, Michael Kors, and Carolina Herrera.
Paris based Avant-garde label Maison Martin Margiela is next in line to collaborate with H&M. The collaboration will be launched in stores November 15th. I cant wait!
A few months ago my cousin Lee got married I was so nervous for her that night I completely forgot to take pictures of my outfit to show you guys. The one that was inspired by Moschino’s gold tux (see it here), that I am so obsessed with. I really didn’t want to wear a gown to her wedding, so I instantly thought about the gold tux with a black bow tie!
I found this jacket at Zara, I actually bought it for like 90% off on sale (!) and the tux-inspired pants are previous season from Zara as well. I had asked my mother to make me the bow tie, because I really couldn’t find a nice one anywhere. Bryanboy would hate it here.
P.S. I know you cant see the shoes but they are my black Luxury rebel jeweled ankle boots (Here)
Remember when I posted the inspiration for my outfit for Alice’s wedding? Well, I didn’t get to take any picture’s that night so I asked my friend Ben who is a photographer to take pictures of this specific outfit. I did my make up put on the outfit, and jewelry while Ben was setting up and then we were ready to shoot. Long story short, he lost his camera…So he shot with his iPhone. Well, that should do it!…
The next big thing to collaborate with fast fashion chain H&M is not a high-fashion brand. No, even better: Fashion Maniac, Legendary fashion Icon, and editor-at-large of Vogue Japan Anna Dello Russo is now teaming up with H&M to create a unique accessories line. You can, of course, expect it to be nothing less than over-the-top and here’s a little sneak peak for those of you who, like me, cannot wait to get your hands on the collection.
The collection offers everything from earrings, gemmed sunglasses, embellished minaudières, and (of course since she has 4,000 pairs) shoes. The collection is due to be available October 4th in select H&M stores.
“I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find. As a stylist I know accessorization is essential: it is the personal touch to any outfit.” – Anna Dello Russo
Stay Tuned for more sneak peaks from this incredible collection!
I can’t believe it. I am overwhelmed to have all of you who support and follow my blog, even after it was down for quite a long period of time. Ever since I have relaunched Perfectism I have been getting much more responses and feedback, and I can’t even express how much I appreciate your support. I’m so glad and touched that you like Perfectism better than it was before, a fashion blogger couldn’t ask for anything more, and all I can say is from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

My friend Sandra actually posted about Scarf Trends as the Must have of Spring Summer 2012, Check it out here on Sandra’s Closet!
The title of this post should really be Searching, Or I Spy. I get stopped on the street all the time when I wear this shirt, “Where did you get it?” Well, just like them I have been looking all over Israel for a shirt similar to this that doesn’t cost over $500, because that’s just not in my budget, no matter how much I want it. I checked Zara, but their’s aren’t like the Versace ones with the italian patterns. So I got sick and tired, and as usual, decided to make it myself. I went to the fabric market, and didn’t find a thing. So I went to the Shuk (Market) and I randomly found these beautiful silk scarves in green with sheer stripes I bought 4 of them for $2 each. Unbelievable, right? Well, I think so. I went home, made a pattern, cut it, and asked my mother to sew it (I hate sewing with a passion) The green python pants are the other way around, when I went searching for the scarves, I found this amazing leather python fabric and my mother and I bought them in every color they had. I was going to make a Prada style coat but it’s getting so hot here in Israel, It would simply sit in the closet until next winter. Shame.
All of you know already that I have fallen head over heels for Moschino especially since their F/W 2011 line. Getting where I’m going? Yes, my glasses! I have looked for those Moschino cat eye glasses everywhere! I got these as sunglasses for my birthday actually, and ended up making them into eye glasses. I’m so happy with the result! They are the first eyeglasses I am willing to leave the house in. What do you think?
