Vogue Taiwan - Chic & Loud

"It's not just how you look it's who you are"  ~ Danyka Founder, Danyka Collection

While friends and family will tease that I usually wear monochrome attire, I am crazy for color and combinations of patterns and prints. Vogue Taiwan ran a fabulous spread this summer that I have finally had a moment to share here with you. This may not suit everyone's taste, but visually I found it interesting to view each outfit / ensemble as you would a painting. I've included some a sampling of our pieces to compliment the outfits. Enjoy and let us know what you think...~
