you find it difficult to choose from
all the different fashions worn by all
the starlets? The different fashion designers
have, in addition to a more leisurely
style designed to match a more comfortable

Oscars, and award ceremonies held in
Hong Kong and Taiwan offer a feast for
your eyes, giving the media opportunities
to pick this year's most popular designers

to create new and innovative styles.
They put out brave new designs, using
cutting edge style, meticulous tailoring
and the bold use of colors, for all to
see, giving us great offerings from the
fashion world and challenging and spurring
on our thoughts about fashion.

the fashion world are the only choice.

but also for not hurting you in the pocketbook!
