    Lynn Kim Do

    Lynn Kim Do may be the first fashionista to define and coin the term Neckbreakin’ Style but she is certainly not the only person that this term encompasses. Lynn takes inspiration from the street, from the mundane and thus her extraordinary everyday experiences, and presents it rawly along with visuals and personal style. This is a platform beyond personal style. It is a space of personal experiences. Lynn Do creates a platform that curates her very honest, sometimes too honest, stories called "Street Talk" with style that is also uniquely raw. Having footprints all over the United States, her view of fashion can not be defined by one location or even one style except one - streetwear. She believes in minimal and clean streetwear without losing all the attitude and sass with it. Her visual and production expertise has accumulated many highly recognized repertoire of projects with clients like Revlon and Urban Outfitters. She has been featured on Nylon.com, The New York Times, and WWD to name a few. If you ask her though, her biggest personal achievement is surviving a year lease in a six floor walk-up NYC apartment.

    Neckbreakin’ NYFW - Look 1 | Wenqi Wu SS15


    "What birthed from those ideas is this clever collection of fantastic shapes, textures, and a refreshing utilitarian take with femme tones."










    Windsor Playsuit - Motel Rocks // Sweater - Vintage // Sandals - Zara 

    New York Fashion Week. A holiday or a hell depending on what side you’re talking to. PR people dread it because they can barely keep anything else in their brain intact besides the seating charts, the wardrobe, and the models timing as they hit the runway. To editors and bloggers, it’s love and hate because while we love watching the beautiful designs that hit the catwalk and the people we finally get to see from other parts of the country, we’re generally sprinting from show to show and living on coffee and champagne. I guess we shouldn’t be complaining too much. The first outfit was a a fun playsuit from Motel Rocks with a play on colors. I’m going to be quite frank when I say I didn’t really think about this outfit. First time is the charm in this case. In really warm and humid weather, I balanced this long sleeve and fitted playsuit with a vintage sweater that never left my waist and nude open toe sandals.

    I had the pleasure of doing a walk through with Wenqi Qu on his debut collection in quite an intimate room at the Ace. The sophisticated geometrical and the Russian Constructivist concept is unbelievable and to think he just graduated! A man with such passion as he continued to show me piece by piece and what it exactly meant to him and within the collection. He stressed how his mind was attracted to the experimental elements of the Russian Constructivist era. He translated this inspiration by playing with various materials, like silk organza, lightweight lambskin, and more, on different surfaces. What birthed from those ideas is this clever collection of fantastic shapes, textures, and a refreshing utilitarian take with femme tones. I instantly became a fan of not only his collection but this modest man who has so much talent oozing from his fingertips.
    Bravo, Wenqi Wu!
