I knew I was in for a treat when Joshua Christensen sent out invites for his AW13 collection's runway debut. And boy was I blown away. Quite honestly, I don't know where to begin but here goes:

I am absolutely in love with the fabrications, materials and textures that were used to construct one-of-a-kind pieces, which are not only visually-stunning to the spectating eye but also incredibly functional and wearable -- qualities I tend to look for when deciding on my sartorial investments.

This collection reminds me of an equally high-end version of Burberry with its sporty-chic and athletic aesthetic. Even as I am going through the images now, I find myself perpetually drawn to the black and white quilted, plaid suit ensemble and the drop-dead gorgeous fur overcoat. If they were ever combined together, that'll be heaven in my mind and on my body. Fingers crossed that both items will be in my closet this coming Fall/Winter!

Aside from delivering an astounding collection that is polished by on-point styling (just look at the accessories!), I am so humbled by Josh's courage, creativity and passion. You can truly see his devotion to the artform of fashion design down to the very last detail. I felt so privileged to see the clothes go down the runway and am confident that we'll only be seeing more of Joshua Christensen in the near future!
