5 Reasons You Should Watch A James Wan Film This Halloween

Don’t know who James Wan is? Well you certainly ought to change that.

Responsible for films such as Insidious, The Conjuring, and the Saw franchise, James Wan has been shaping our nightmares for years now. The 36-year-old Chinese Australian filmmaker is overlooked far more than he should be. Many people know his films and yet they don’t know the man behind them.

At the young age of 11, Wan was already well-aware that he wanted to be a filmmaker. After he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, he instantly went on to make films with a fellow aspiring filmmaker, Leigh Whannell. The two have collaborated with one another for a handful of films which just so happen to be perfect for Halloween.

We encourage you to sit down with some popcorn, a protective blanket and a James Wan film of your choice. Here’s five reasons why James Wan should be part of you Halloween this year:

 


 

1. He understands that given the right setting, a doll can be our worst nightmare.
No seriously, these things are creepy.

doll 3

 


 

2. He understands the power of Audio.

Watch a James Wan film at the theaters and you surely won’t be disappointed with the audio. Many scenes use it very tactfully like this one from Insidious:

And lets not forget the way he manages to make a simple title score terrifying while it’s blasted at you in full volume:

 


 

3. Why yes, creatures that pop up at us are frightening. 

pop 1 pop 2 pop 3

 

 


 

4. He understands that sometimes “less is more.”

Don’t get me wrong. Wan is brilliant at scary images that stay in your head in the worst way possible, but he understands that there needs to be variety.

He can take a little girl pointing at a wall and horrify you. He can allude to a scary flashback without ever showing what happened, but still give you the creeps. Wan understands that sometimes, our own imagination can be much worse than anything he shows.

5. He makes you care about his characters and his storyline.

You may have turned away from the stomach-churning gore in Saw, but you have to admit, the movie got you thinking. He made sure you paid attention and ended up questioning whether or not you would be able to do the same thing. Would you make the same mistakes?

Often times, a horror film flaw is that we simply don’t care about the characters. We’re afraid for death itself, but we don’t actually know too much about the people who are about to die or worse, they take on stereotypical “scary movie” personas. Wan very tastefully avoids this mistake with a simple method: He makes you actually like his characters. You end up hoping for a happy ending and it makes you more invested in the film itself.

So take it from us and make sure Wan is part of your holiday. Happy Halloween everyone!

Olympic Gold Medalist Kristi Yamaguchi Creates Women’s Active Wear Line

 

The latest endeavor by the Olympic Gold Medal figure skater and Dancing With the Stars winner is Tsa.ya, a women’s active wear line that draws on Yamaguchi’s training as an athlete, life as a mom and passion for childhood literacy. 

 


 

One of Kristi Yamaguchi’s favorite aspects of figure skating has always been the costumes. She still loves the iconic black and gold sequined outfit that she was wearing when she won the gold medal at the 1992 Olympics when she was only 20 years old.

“I wasn’t planning to wear it because all year, I had worn a pink dress with short sleeves,” she remembers. “I got superstitious and wanted to wear the pink one again. But I’m glad my mom encouraged me to wear the gold one because it was so much more elegant. The look is so ’90s, and we had costume restrictions back then, so it’s more conservative than what you see now. But I still like it!”

Fashion was an early passion for Yamaguchi. She was not only involved in designing her skating costumes, but post-Olympics, she was the official spokesperson for the apparel fiber company Celanese Acetate’s fashion campaign, where she was able to work with designers including Tadashi, Carolina Herrera and Carmen Marc Valvo. Years later, she slipped back into a number of beautiful, extravagant costumes for her 2008 winning run on the TV reality competition Dancing With the Stars, her favorite being the gold evening gown she wore while dancing the foxtrot with partner Mark Ballas.

When Yamaguchi decided to launch her own product line Tsu.ya in 2012, active wear was a natural choice. She wanted to create fashionable clothing that could transition easily from exercise to everyday life, which was especially important to her as an on-the-go mom.

“I knew there was a way to create fun, trendy active wear that was comfortable,” says Yamaguchi. “To be different, I like to add pieces with ruffles and things to make it more feminine than what typical active wear looks like. I’m designing for a certain demographic that might like our mesh panel on the waistband for extra support, relaxed shapes in certain tops, ruching in areas to flatter the feminine figure.”

 

 

Yamaguchi is intimately involved in the design and development of a brand that bears not just her middle name but also the moniker of her grandmother. “It’s a nod to my family and our Japanese heritage,” she explains. “The literal translation is ‘shiny,’ so Tsu.ya encourages women to shine and find the spark of brilliance in all that they do.”

The personal connections don’t stop there. The “Keara” keyhole tee is named after her daughter, and a portion of all Tsu.ya proceeds go to Yamaguchi’s charity, the Always Dream Foundation, which focuses on childhood literacy.

Yamaguchi says she’s excited for the fall 2014 line, which features color-ways in teal, raspberry, heathered grey and, of course, black and white.

“There’s a beautiful, strappy active tank, mesh details, flattering silhouettes, a comfy wrap and a fun moto jacket,” she says. Indeed, the moto jacket, called “Mica,” is all style and all comfort, made of soft French terry and detailed with trendy gunmetal zippers. Other standout pieces include the perfectly slouchy “Lori” capri pant and the “Julia” jacket, a stylish mesh zip-up with extra long sleeves and thumb holes. Check out the entire line at tsuyabrand.com.

Highlights From Shanghai Fashion Week

 

Shanghai, arguably one of the most bustling and fashion-forward cities, just wrapped its 12th Shanghai Fashion Week on October 24th.

The highly-anticipated event showcased a fantastic mix of both local and international brands. We’ve already seen a huge trend in sports luxe clothing, animal print and symmetrical graphics during Milan, Paris and London Fashion week. It’s safe to say that Shanghai is no exception. Not only were these trends all over the runway, they were seen in abundance in the best of street style.

Attendees seemed to lean towards monochromatic black tones as well as loose-fitting cropped pants. As for footwear, a mix of high heels, knee high boots and sneakers (as seen on the Alexander Wang RTW 2015 collection) were spotted.

Here are some of the highlights from the week:

You can then donate directly to NBCF, join countless marathons and fundraisers, and volunteer to help educate others.

“Here in America, We Don’t Eat Turtles and Frogs”: Chinatown Tour Guide Apologizes For Racist Rant

 

You may have seen the viral video which shows a tour guide giving a description of San Francisco’s Chinatown to a number of individuals aboard a tour bus. Doesn’t sound like footage that would go viral? Well that’s because when I say she gave “a description” of Chinatown, I actually mean she gave a drunken, angry rant full of racism and profanity.

The video, which was shot by a German tourist on the double decker bus, shows the tour guide explaining that it is her last day on the job. Apparently, she thought the perfect way to celebrate this occasion was to drop the F-bomb all over the city. After watching her controversial performance, we’re going to go ahead and say she’s not a fan Chinatown.

 

 

Unsurprisingly, it’s a two way street — Chinatown is not a fan of the racist tour guide either. A rally was held at the Portsmouth Square which allowed citizens to voice their opinion on the racist rant. Sue Lee of the Chinese Historical Society of America spoke out about her disappointment in the tour guide for turning to racism to entertain the bus riders, her disappointment in the applause the tour guide received at the end of her rant and (most importantly) her disappointment that no one stood up to say something.

 

 

In response, the tour guide, who remains anonymous, spoke out to say she was not drunk and was simply doing a “satirical comedic portion of the tour.” She contacted San Francisco Supervisor David Chiu and said “I thought that I could bend the rules. I thought that I could be a little outrageous, and it was something that went way too far.”

Many do not believe she was simply trying to be comedic. However, Chiu recognizes the importance of the tour guide taking responsibility for her inappropriate actions. In a Facebook post, he wrote:

“She also apologized and seemed to be coming to an understanding that her comments were not “satirical” or “comedic” but were instead incredibly harmful and offensive. I don’t know the woman’s name or her phone number but she said she was going to call me back today to talk about what she can start to do to make amends to the Chinatown community and all of San Francisco. I’m glad she’s starting to come forward and realize she needs to take responsibility for her actions.”

 

 

 

 

Seoul Fashion Week Street Style: Hats to Handbags

 

Sometimes an accessory makes the most impact with an outfit, and street style blogs have captured some of the best ones to be seen from Seoul Fashion Week.  Just as much as we love all the clothes, these stylish people found ways to make their accessories the main attraction of their look.

We’ve put together a few of our favorites below: a handbag designed as a favorite animal companion, some great sneakers including a bit of double love for Ricardo Tisci’s collaboration with Nike, an awesome pink structured umbrella and a couple really standout hats.  With such fascinating styles from the eventful week all around, it’s difficult for us to decide which we love more– the runway or the street trends. What’s your favorite?

Get to Know Raggedy Threads Owner Jamie Wong

 

 

I’m nestled on a comfortable leather couch with my back against a World War 2 sweetheart pillow in the homeliest store I’ve ever been to: Raggedy Threads. The vintage store is situated in downtown LA’s little Tokyo and aside from unavoidable shopping, I’m here to interview the owner and my long-time friend, Jamie Wong.

This little store is a place unlike its surrounding neighbors. It’s the epitome of authentic vintage, including the storage door that is made out of 100 year old wood from a barn that was being torn down. Jamie describes it as her “little cabin in the woods.”

It’s been 12 years since Raggedy Threads opened its doors, so I sat down with Jamie to get the details on everything from surviving the recession to how vintage plays an important role in today’s trends.

 


 

Audrey Magazine: When did your love for vintage start?
Jamie Wong:
It started when I was really young. I’ve always been a rummager. Because I was such a hyper kid, my parents would grab a drawer full of random things and I would just dig through them and find things. The love of finding and hunting, whether it’s old or new, was exciting.

 

AM: You were quite young when you opened Raggedy Threads. How did the idea start?
JW:
I grew up in Pomona and in my area, there were some really good thrift stores. There was one particular thrift store that I just loved. The couple that owned it was from London and we became really good friends because I would go there all the time. One day, they asked me if I’d be interested in doing the Rose Bowl for them. I didn’t know that much about vintage, but I just picked the stuff that I liked and set up every month for them at the Rose Bowl back in 97’ and they gave me a commission on what I sold. This was where I learned a lot about vintage and the business. I did it for three months before I decided I could do it on my own.

 

AM: The recession hit not long after, how did you survive it?
JW:
It was hard. Vintage became really big in the Japanese market so I had a lot of design clients and a lot of Japanese clients. But getting the stuff was really difficult and I didn’t have a lot of money. Then the recession hit hard. I was struggling. It was the biggest hustle I had done in my life. I didn’t want to lose my business, plus I was stuck on a lease. I was selling any way I could, doing as many flee markets, calling people– the hustle. I made it through, barely, but I made it. I then got tipped off that there was this space in Little Tokyo that I have now. I ran down, saw it and rented the space. I love it. This is my 5th year here now.

 

AM: Who are your customers at Raggedy Threads?
JW:
It’s so diverse. I get some tourists, even 80-year-olds come here. Some people come in here and think it’s a museum! I love that I don’t have a target audience. I have all walks of life come here. I even have twelve year olds and their moms! I just sold a 1920’s dress to a 60-year-old for her book signing. I also had a band come in from Australia called,Boy and Bear and they bought stuff for their tour. They asked me to their show that night, so I went and I saw them performing wearing the clothes they bought that day.

 

AM: What is your favorite thing about selling vintage?
JW:
I love seeing the look on people’s faces when they find something. For me, it’s not about the money. It’s more about seeing pieces go to a good home because each piece is a story and the people I got them from have some incredible stories to tell. I also spend a lot of time restoring the pieces and bringing them back to life– I just love it. It’s so nice seeing people enjoying it too. It makes me happy that people like what I like.

 

1

 

AM: Where do you get most of your pieces? You must travel a lot.
JW:
Yes, now it’s all travel to find stuff. This year alone I’ve been to ten states and some multiple times. I never now just go on holiday. I always go with the intention of finding things. Some trips are just straight for business but when I do go on holidays, I’m always looking. My goal is to always go somewhere new every year, and one beach holiday. I’ve been accomplishing that!

 

AM: How much do current trends influence what you buy and how important is vintage in fashion today?
JW:
I actually do look at current trends and I have a lot of designers as customers and they come and buy for inspiration. So I like to see what they’re doing and what’s current. I have a lot of friends at WGSN (fashion forecasters) so I do keep up with that. As much as I hate going into stores, especially in malls, I have to see what they’re doing because they’re buying from me. I have to see what patterns are being used, what’s in this year, what colors I should look for. With vintage, you’re pretty trendy all year long, but there are always specific things. For instance, overalls and indigo’s are in this year! I’ve been selling them for a while, but it’s off the hook now. Also, my hat sales have gone up because of Pharrell. I’ve always sold hats, but right now, they’re so big!

 

AM: What are some of the other pieces you are currently selling?
JW:
Lately I’ve been really in to Victorian pieces. I have some from late 1800’s and 1940’s. I just think they’re beautiful and finding them and seeing the condition they’re in is amazing. Those pieces have become really popular too. Even the designers are buying them because of the lines and the lacing. Lace is really big now.

 

AM: Any other pieces you couldn’t let go of?
JW:
I am obsessed with flags because they are all so different. There are also specific hats that I won’t sell. Also my World War 2 pillows. I love them.

 

AM: Vintage has become so popular, but have you also seen a growth in the vintage market in Asia?
JW:
I’ve had a lot of customers from China. Since ‘Mood’ (a vintage store) opened up in Hong Kong, it’s really opened up the market to vintage. They like the college style or cartoon stuff. My Taiwan customers really like oversized military shirts. The vintage they tend to buy is more subtle though.

 

AM: I know you buy some Asian fashion brands. What are your favorite stores?
JW:
Kapital, a Japanese brand, is so inspiring to me. The patchwork and the way they stitch. I also like Visvim, a Hong Kong brand which is a very similar. I spend so much money in there!

2

 

AM: What is your favorite trend of all time?
JW:
T-shirts. They will never go away. And hats.

 

AM: Favorite era?
JW:
The 30’s and 40’s. I love the work behind the clothes. Also 70’s clothing across the board. The Harleys, the hippies, the bohos.

 

AM: What are your plans going forward?
JW:
I am working on my own line of women’s workwear but more tailored and not so masculine. I want to do a workwear line that has more of a feminine cut, less bubbly and billowy with good pleats. I also want to open up another store and a vintage accessories store with vintage hats and customized headbands. It would also be nice to eventually have a store for my own line. I just need to buckle down and do it!

Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2015 Runway Highlights

We’ve brought you some of our favorite street styles from the models and attendees of Seoul Fashion Week, but the runway has produced some stunning designs from on-trend contemporary looks to avant-garde cuts made to inspire the next generation of fashion designers that come out of Korea.

Main themes of spring and summer 2015 for Korea have taken form in monochromatic gradients with splashes of color, visual and textural floral patterns and sheer fabrics. Some trends continue from this past summer and current fall with leather biker jackets and slit hem skirts, but are reimagined by the individual designers.  We find contemporary fashion is still gravitating towards loose, boxy cuts, but mixed with fitted options for those who always feel drawn to classic, natural waistlines.  The sheer fabrics offer opportunities to layer up or stay cool when spring makes a warm turn for summer.

Below are some more covet-worthy looks from Seoul Fashion Week.

Update on Nina Pham: The Nurse Who Beat Ebola

 

When 26-year-old nurse Nina Pham contracted the Ebola virus from her patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, it seemed like all of America entered a state of panic. After all, Pham was the very first person to ever contract the deadly virus on U.S. soil.

But now it seems those same panicked individuals are letting out a sigh of relief. The brave Texas nurse is officially virus-free.

On Friday morning, the National Institutes of Health confirmed that Pham no longer tested positive for Ebola. Pham was given multiples tests to make sure she was virus-free before being discharged from the hospital. After five consecutive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) which tested negative for Ebola, doctors were confident that she was no longer infectious.

“I feel fortunate and blessed to be standing here today,” Pham told reporters in front of the National Institutes of Health facility. “Throughout this ordeal, I have put my faith in God and my medical team.”

 

 

If any more proof is needed to show that Pham is indeed virus-free, President Barack Obama met Pham in the Oval Office to give her a big hug.

“I think hope just went up a notch today by the fact that we are all here to celebrate the recovery of a patient who was afflicted with a disease that is obviously very serious,” said National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins.

“Although I no longer have Ebola, I know that it may be awhile before I have my strength back,” Pham said. “So with gratitude and respect for everyone’s concern, I ask for my privacy and for my family’s privacy to be respected as I return to Texas and try to get back to a normal life and reunite with my dog, Bentley.”
