Phillip Lim: a rising star in fashion's world!

Phillip Lim was born in Thailand in 1973 and later escaped to the Cambodia's civil war by traveling to Southern California. Lim never fantasize to become a designer, but after a weekend job in Barneys, Beverly Hills he had what he called in his website, as a carrer epiphany. He got an intership with Katayone Adeli and his natural talent shined so much, that he got a position inside her design team. When Adeli relocated to New York, Lim stayed in LA and decided to launch his own brand with his friend Wen Zhou.

In 2005, he debuted 3.1 Phillip Lim and achieved instant commercial and critical success. After glowing in NY fashion Week Fall 05, Lim won several international prizes, like the 2007 Swarovsky Award of Cooper-Hewitt National Desing Museum. His style is defined as minimal and feminine and he defines that his priority in design is "street elegance".
In 2007, Lim opened his first store, in Soho, NY and now his brand is available in 50 different countries and 400 boutiques.

In his website he recongnizes that after only 5 years as creative director and co-founder of 3.1 Phillip Lim, he finds himself in the "helm of a pioneering contemporary brand".

In the presentation of his AW 2010 collection, he told press he wanted to be back to the clean design: " Last season, everything was on the outside, this season, we're paring down to the essence." In Woman we can see lots of denim, knit wear and leather in tunics, long skirts and large jackets. The key colors are in the trio: grey, light brown and light blue in stripes and black, purple, camel and gold in other pieces.

For Man the collection is very dark, mostly in black and grey, but it has some pieces with the same striped trio as woman, camel jackets and some fur details. For children, the colours and fabrics are the same as for woman but applied to a small world with lovely little leather jackets.
Last but not least, let's name some actresses that reflect his success in red carpet and street wear: Rachel Bilson, Beyoncè, Demi Moore, Leighton Meester, Srah Jessica Parker, Goldie Hawn, Kristin Bell, Natalie Portman, Diane Kruger, Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon.

This was a report I made in a job context. Do you like this kind of posts, more informative? About the clothes...I love Rachel Bilson dress in the third photo. And how about you? What's you favourite?
