We're completely inspired by Dutch fashion designers Viktor & Rolf, so we thought we'd share the beauty of their work. The photos here are from their latest interactive catwalk show at Palais de Tokyo during Haute Couture in Paris.
These days we're so obsessed about our appearances according to how we want to be seen by others. We are all guilty of dressing, and even posing, a particular way to create a persona that gets social media ‘likes.’

Hong Kong’s poetic coexistence of old and new in such an extreme manner makes it an exciting and unique city. Unlike Seoul, Hong Kong’s new apartments shoot out from nowhere co-mingling with the old ones. Like lush trees, they spring up tall and fast filling any gap in this densely built city. There’s construction on almost every corner, and the old cultures mixing with the new to create something magical. From luxurious modern malls to knock-off street markets, it seems to me Hong Kong’s consumerism surpasses that of many western cities like New York City.
In the news this week many people witnessed an issue at the Cannes Film Festival when some women in their 50’s wearing flats were declined entry to the red carpet. The irony of it all is that the women were attending the screening of a pro-LGBT romance ‘Carol’ featuring Cate Blanchett. It’s even more ironic seeing how ‘efforts’ were made to include more female producers in this year’s festival.
When it comes to innovation and technology, South Korea leads the world with name brands like Samsung, LG and Hyundai, all known for their unique design and superior quality. The Korean Wave since the 1990’s has brought new light and impact in western countries for the quality of Korean craftsmanship and culture. Despite this, there are many challenges that top Korean designers like Choi Bo Ko, Rich Kim, and Lee Sang Bong have to face. The negative stigma of inferiority associated with made in Asian as in many ways impeded the growth of Asian brands.
Most of us have some terrifying experience or thoughts around purchasing shoes online. Depending on the leather type and design, your right shoe size can vary from each brand or model. ASHLEY LIM is committed to providing you the most perfect fit possible. Take a moment to measure your feet following these guidelines:
How to measure your feet
Place a piece of paper on the floor. Stand over it with the back of your heel against a straight edge or wall. See figure 1.
Run a pen around your foot to draw an outline.
Foot length is measured along the straight line from your heel to the tip of your longest toe. See figure 2.
Add an extra 2mm to your measurements, which gives you the proper clearance for your feet.
Once you have your measurements in MM, refer to our size chart below to find your right fit. Often one foot is slightly larger than the other; please use the larger foot measurement to select your shoe size.
