Anny's "Color Me Successful" Receiving Honorable Mention at Peacock Thai Silk Competition







Li-Fen Anny Chang, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design, created this three-piece ensemble for a women's career wear competition sponsored by the Queen Sirikit Institute of Sericulture (QSIS) of Thailand. “Color Me Successful” was juried as one of the top 10 designs; the initial jury was a panel from International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA). The top 10 designs will be exhibited at the Queen Sirikit Peacock Standards of Thai Silk exhibition and ASEAN conference on August 6th to 9th in Bangkok. “Color Me Successful” also receives an "Honorable Mention" recognition from Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand. The trophy will be presented to Anny in the ITAA’s annual conference in Seattle, October 2009.
The handmade yellow and blue reversible Thai silk with the motif of flowers and stripes was the inspiration, particularly the exotic colors of the yellow side of the fabric. The design details were intended to make wearers seem competent and reliable, yet stylish. The ensemble could be worn with or without the jacket depending on the weather, personal preference, or to suit professional needs. (model: Nikki Trizza, photographer: Job Ruzvidzo)
