Wonderfully Weird: Kanarian Kindred Goes “On An Asian Voyage!!

In today’s society it seems everyone is chasing the next big thing, especially in fashion. Whether it’s the new Jordan’s, Prada slippers, or Louboutin’s, everyone wants a piece of top products. This is fine but what about those with a weird sense of style? The person that marches to the beat of their own drum, while straying from the normal fashion market.

Have no fear because Wonderfully Weird has arrived. The weekly blog posting various fashion items including: clothing, jewelry, shoes, and styling tips considered odd by others. My style is different from most because it focuses on funky, different, and classy pieces others tend to shy away from. Here is a small sample of my taste, and I look forward to sharing my works weekly with the group.

This week features items from Taiwanese designer Kang Yen-ling, as well as unique designer shoes. The following items were featured creations of Kang Yen-ling at the New Fashion Pavilion of Taipei Flora Expo in Taipei, southeast China’s Taiwan, Dec. 16, 2010.

An avid shoe lover, I couldn’t end the blog without featuring some of the most unique shoes I’ve seen in a while. The first five items were found on the Alibaba website. According to the company website, Alibaba Group was founded in 1999 by 18 people led by Jack Ma, a former English teacher from Hangzhou, China who has aspired to help make the Internet accessible, trustworthy and beneficial for everyone. The privately-held Alibaba Group, including its affiliated entities, employs some 24,000 people around the world and has more than 70 offices in Greater China, India, the United Kingdom and the United States

In 1962 Armi Ratia, the founder of Marimekko, defined Marimekko as “a cultural phenomenon guiding the quality of living”. She built a utopia called Marikylä (“Marimekko Village”), whose aim was no less than to house the staffs and to function as a laboratory for product design and to develop new ways of life. This year Marimekko will bring to life the Marimekko Village of today. The following items are samples of her creations. Source link: Marimekko

The story of the Minna Parikka brand began when Minna decided at the tender age of 15 that designing shoes was her life’s true calling. “I felt like I’d been struck by a lightning when I first realized I could actually make a career out of making shoes.”

After moving to England at 19 to pursue a degree in footwear design, Minna spent the next six years living, working and finding inspiration in London, Milan and Barcelona. She returned to her native Helsinki in 2005 to launch the Minna Parikka brand. Source: Minna Parikka

Azza Fahmy
It all started when Azza Fahmy came across an art book about classical jewelry of the Middle Ages in Europe. The book was in German and cost 17.5 EGP – a fortune at the time- but neither language nor price barriers stopped her from buying it. Fascinated with the designs of the jewelry, this book was the light that ignited her inspiration. With a B.A. in Interior Design, Azza Fahmy had planned to join the Faculty of Fine Arts to get a second degree in the Applied Arts Department, she soon discarded this plan in favor for an on the job training in the field of jewelry design. Always searching for new sources of inspiration and innovation that would shape her creations, Fahmy began exploring the artistic, intellectual and cultural history of Islamic design. Combining her research with her love for architecture, Azza Fahmy began to design one of her first collections which won her wide appeal and gave instant recognition to the collection. The collection was titled ‘Houses of the Nile’ and was inspired by Nubia and the traditional architecture of Egypt. It featured jewelry in the shape of small houses gorgeously encrusted with palm trees or rocks. As one critic wrote at the time, “the beauty of this collection is that most people never thought of wearing mud houses…Azza Fahmy did.” Source: Azzy Fahmy
