Kicking off the runway with nude pink cotton blazer and cream-colored pleated skirt, the Korean designer Son Jung Wan introduced her Fall/Winter 2013 collection to the anticipating audience.

Son redefined elegance for upcoming fall and winter season with neutral colors and soft, simple, minimal designs.  With colors white, caramel, and ivory, her designs created classy and feminine look in overall.

A sudden change of the music warned the audience of the introduction of “fun” colors.  Although Son stayed with darker shades such as violet, burgundy, maroon, and turquoise, these colors popped out to express more exciting side of her collection.

“This time I got inspired by paint of Kandisky; his compositions series expressed the flow of music with dynamic of color,” said Son Jung Wan backstage after the show.  “All trends sprout from the young generations, so I think the brand is more alive and sustainable if youths find it wearable and likable.”

Son mostly stayed with one solid color, but her few prints included leopard and snake prints.  Using fox fur, her leopard prints were classy and luxurious addition to her work. She didn’t forget to add details to the corners of her designs such as use of metallic, suede, and fur. One of her most popular designs from the audience was fox fur coat with sequined details.

To complete the sophisticated and graceful styling, all hairs were placed up to help create such polished, elegant look, with makeup and nails done as natural and nude as possible by Miyako Okamoto for Shiseido.

    History of the Washington Square News:

    The Washington Square News is the official daily student newspaper of New York University and serves the NYU, Greenwich Village, and East Village communities. Founded as an independent newspaper in 1973, the WSN allows its undergraduate writers and photographers to cover campus and city news and continues to grow its strong body of award-winning journalists and photographers.

  • The WSN has a circulation of about 60,000 and can be found in over a hundred purple bins distributed throughout campus. It is published Monday through Thursday during the fall and spring semesters and online on Friday, with additional special issues published in the summer. The newspaper recently revamped its website during the Fall 2012 semester.

    Like few campus newspapers in the country, the paper is editorially and financially independent from the university and is solely responsible for selling advertisements to fund its production. The WSN, including its senior staff, is run solely by current undergraduate students and the business-division is largely student-operated as well.

    A Board of Directors comprised of alumni, NYU professors and working news media professionals serves as advisors to the paper. Board members have no control in the WSN's editorial policy or newsroom operations. Alumni of the newspaper are established and leading journalists in such news organizations as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NBC news, ABC news, Fox News, and USA Today.
