    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.

    NYFW with my Woes




    "This season, I was lucky to have my ladies by my side. Besides the very obvious reasons, like it's just more fun with your main bishes by your side -- we just get it. Just like a very necessary stop to Ricky's for bandaids and shoe cushions or tequila peer pressure shots at noon. Hey, this is a no judgement zone. "








    Leather Dress - Bebe // Bucket Bag - Mansur Gavriel // Shoes - Vintage

    Every New York Fashion Week has been incredibly different for me. Each season, I walk away with more than an inside look of the beautiful collections to come followed by boozy after parties, the rare opportunities to see all my fashionable pals in one spot, and the incredible concrete style littered in the streets. It's a combination of all of that plus some that makes each season so unique. This season is especially unique because, honestly, I'll barely be participating in it. The time I do have at NYFW are spent with my woes. And when I say woes, I mean my blogger babes and the closest of gals -- Tina Maria of Jean Rex and Mai of Little Mai Sunshine

    We really took on SS16 NYFW with less seriousness than we ever did before. Years prior included patterns of running from show to show, quick hugs and kisses on the cheek, very little time to eat, yet plenty of time to drink, which always results in late nights, early mornings, and pure exhaustion. And this was all don't generally by myself or with a fashion partner for only several hours of the day if our shows lined up. This season, I was lucky to have my ladies by my side. Besides the very obvious reasons, like it's just more fun with your main bishes by your side -- we just get it. Just like a very necessary stop to Ricky's for bandaids and shoe cushions or tequila peer pressure shots at noon. Hey, this is a no judgement zone. 

    Draped in Bebe as we intentionally and unintentionally coordinated, true friendship medallions should be passed out to our honor. We all got dressed in the morning with help from our good friends at Bebe. I had a completely different outfit in mind the evening before NYFW but walked out of the door that morning in an all leather pleated dress. Besides confusing people by wearing a "dominatrix" dress with dainty pleats, I really feel in love with this piece. And people were drawn to it, too. Several curious ones even came up to me to actually feel the dress. I encouraged it, of course. Because I will take any opportunity for people to be weird and for people to touch me (Ha!). So after limping to Tacombe for tacos at 10pm with the ladies still by my side after a very long day of fashion shows, presentations, and previews, we called it an early night. 

    And then I began packing for a plane ride to Paris the next evening.
