Yaya is a Taiwanese girl who works as a stylist in United States. We met in Taipei, when she was visiting her family. We decided to do a photo shooting together and she is an excellent model! Her style is very urban and loud, so we thought it would be a great contrast with the Songshan Cultural Park.
For the first set of photos, she was wearing a black leather jacket, pink cropped top, furry white high waisted shorts, sheer socks with flowers and wooden platform studded black shoes. Her complements were a bracelet and mirror sunglasses.

Sanza is from the south of France but he has been living in Taipei for more than 10 years. He works in the banking industry but besides this job he collaborates in an infinite number of projects related mainly with photography, fashion and culture. We met through a common friend, who, due to our shared interests, thought it was about time that we met each other. Sanza is one of the creators, along with the French photographer Stephane Ferrero, of Revver Magazine. Last year, I worked as stylist in Revver Magazine #7 and it was an amazing experience!
When I run into Sanza at the Songshan Cultural Park, I couldn’t help to take some photos of him. As you can see, his style is really elegant in a unique way, mixing different trends. In this case, Sanza is wearing a blue shirt with short sleeves and Mao collar buttoned to the top, skinny jeans, black socks with red polka dots, and brown and white brogue leather shoes. His complements are a Cartier watch, a bracelet, his laptop in a Dvf 1974 Neoprene case and a black leather wallet.
Coco is a 17 years old student in Taipei. I met her at the Songshan Cultural Park, where she was with some friends (like Shalynn, who already starred a post here, Eufay, also in here, or Nicole, in here). She is wearing a wide black overall tied at the shoulders and cropped at the ankles, over a black T-shirt, and black boots. Her complements are a black oversize boater hat with the “Food for Thought” writing on the inner wide brim, a statement necklace made with black leather, small golden earrings, some silver bracelets, and a black leather tote handbag with big blue eyes made with sequins, with a blue teddy bear keychain hanging from it.
From April 14th to 16th, was celebrated in Taipei another edition of the Taipei In Style fashion fair, at the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park. The content has been great like in the past editions: exhibitions, seminars, house shows,… and I was there with my Press Pass! Let’s continue with Day 1! The third part of the third house show was PLATE MOVEMENT, you can check its Facebook’s page for more information. As you will see in the photos, the designs mix different fabrics with several layers and decorative elements. All the complements like necklaces, earrings, etc., were quite big and all the models were wearing a septum, giving the collection a tribal air.
Loca is a 26 years old designer and I met him at the Songshan Cultural Park, in Taipei. He was wearing a long wide black T-shirt over a white shirt (which is an usual trend among boys in Taiwan as I explained in this article), black shorts, black and yellow Pikachu socks, and black boots. His complements were a black cap, small earrings, round glasses, a Pikachu small bag, a red bracelet, a big watch, and a black leather briefcase.
