SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
LUCIA HWONG GORDON
TALKS ABOUT HER 5th OUTFIT

 

 

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Zac Posen silver dress
Lavender fox fur from Chie Imai
Jimmy Choo silver sandals
Bulgari Serpenti watch
Concentrica earrings.

 

 

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
A dear friend brought me to Zac Posen’s showroom and I fell in love with this classically cut cocktail dress in silver. I always feel cold with bare shoulders in the evening, so I like to take a small fur wrap with me. Chie Imai had the perfect one for me in lavender.

 

 

 

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time? 
The silver dress has a Hollywood red-carpet flair. When I acquired the lavender fox fur, the colors complemented each other quite unexpectedly!

 

 

 

On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
10 – It is one of my perennial favorites.  I always feel ready to walk the red carpet.

 

 

 

What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The fit and metallic texture of the silver dress gives me the feeling of a modern day mermaid. The lavender fox fur softens the reflective fabric of the dress.  The cool intertwining colors move like a current drifting through an icy ocean.

 

 

 

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
This outfit usually makes an appearance in the spring, fall and Christmas and New Year holidays.  The understated glamour is always correct!

 

 

There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
Purchasing the dress at Zac Posen’s showroom was a wonderfully fun afternoon.  It always brings back lovely memories when I wear it.  Chie Imai chose the lavender fox fur and said the color was perfect for me.  I feel that I was dressed with love!
