In case you don't know, I won best in show for my senior fashion show.  My inspiration was the contrast between the glitz and glamour of the roaring 2os and the economic depression that was impending at the time (sound familiar?).  I portrayed this with lots of drab metallics mixed with tons of antique sequins and of course drop waists.   That was five years ago, but I am still in love with my collection and the concept behind it.  Thats probably why I gravitated towards the Gryphon booth at Coterie this weekend.  Designer Aimee Cho mixes embellished military jackets and trenches with sequin dresses and tops.  I wish I could find a good picture of the line, but all the pics on shopbop, etc don't do the line any justice at all.
