Hi There..... Do you like leather jackets? Are you ready for a new fashion designer interview?

You had better be because I am. Then again, you probably are, otherwise, you might not be reading this fashion designer interview. I love to have the power to keep you waiting until I feel like writing. 😜

Nah, of course not. I feel ever so lucky people take the time to read my blog posts. Sometimes life throws me a curveball and I have to postpone writing until the next day, but I try to be on call twice a week. 😉

I know, lots of writers have blog posts queued up for days like that, but that's just not me. When I am not writing, I am knitting, sewing, or beading, on other days you can find me sipping a cool drink on a terras somewhere. Life is too short not to enjoy every minute. 😍

Let's see what the 43-year-old George Yang, fashion designer for PalaLeather, has to tell about his life. 😊

What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be? 

Complete annual and seasonal product design and development according to the brand's product positioning.

What made you decide to become a Fashion Designer?

It runs in the blood of our family. I grew up watching my elders and the workers crafting leather garments.

Our great-grandfather was a skilled tailor who owned a small tailor shop. Later on, he expanded his business and opened a manufacturing company of leather jackets. 
That’s how I became interested in fashion and wanted to show my style and designs. 
 

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Fashion means a lot to me. I am deeply influenced by my family culture. 
Since I was a child, I would always look forward to the latest trends and the most fashionable aesthetic styles of the year. Whenever I am exposed to a new trend, I love to immerse myself in the trends and feel the change and beauty of the fashion world.

What are your successes, and how did you achieve them?

Our family business was once dying and almost failed, but at a family gathering, we decided to revive it by re-branding and re-financing. I took on this immense responsibility and through my tireless efforts, it thrived and we explored opportunities overseas. 

When I took over and managed our family's factory, I was always committed to winning over competitors by QUALITY. I got the best suppliers for leather and hardware. Every leather garment goes through a rigorous quality control process to ensure that it is ready for the market. 

We are known for our QUALITY. Our customers love our products and through their word of mouth and recommendations, our factory has grown bigger and bigger. This year, we even got a partnership with Lamborghini! 
 

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

Yes. A brand is a business card for consumers & it represents a huge role when purchasing clothing. Most people also buy clothing with a brand name.
Compared to brandless competitors, the essence of branding is that it gives greater value to your products & services.
 

Describe your personal style of clothing?

My designs are more on the side of understated luxury fashion pieces. You can see the superior quality and exquisite craftsmanship in the details of each piece.
 

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

I think fashion will always be about expressing yourself. 
I like it, I wear it. I want it, I wear it.

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

For me, Strap Accents are the best trend in 2022. We are seeing crop tops with a strapped waistband across the stomach, strappy dresses, and bralettes. They are trendy at the moment. 

Poly Pleated Skirts are also gaining popularity recently. Pleats and tucks are designs that suit everyone. Simple gathering pleats and tucks can easily upgrade a casual top to cozy party looks. 
 

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment?

Adding glossy chain belts on the garments can be the worst trend in 2022. 
Whether it's a low-key shimmer or a more visually striking highlight chain belt or clothing hardware, I think these can only be used on specific fabrics and occasions. It is difficult to make this trend versatile as casual wear. Especially if you have cheap fabrics. I think it looks miserable.
 

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Your fashion style should be comfortable, not time-consuming, and very personal. You should express yourself in your style. Wear the most suitable and beautiful version of yourself. Wearing the right style of your own will make you confident. Just be yourself. You do not have to dress up too hard, find the right one for you.
 

Who is your style icon and why?

I love Hedi Slimane. He is a great artist, designer, stylist, and photographer. I am fascinated by his iconic tight black suits and rocking unisex covers. With his fluid, unisex tailoring style, Slimane designed all kinds of leather jackets, narrow-waisted coats, and low-collared shirts, breathing new life into YSL's secondary label Rive Gauche Homme. He brings his unique razor-thin aesthetic to the forefront.

How To Get Rid Of Deodorant Stains - Nivea MEN Black & White Invisible Fresh

Hi There..... Are you a fan of antiperspirant deodorant? Do you hate deodorant stains?

Picture by Seadbeady

I genuinely hate deodorant stains, but sadly, this post is not about me this time. You may wonder why not? Because this blog post is about antiperspirant deodorant spray for men. 😉

Hey, please don’t go just yet. There is absolutely no reason to stop reading because you’re a woman. 😨

Ah yes, perhaps I can give you a few reasons to keep on reading. Just like me, you could have your man try out this new deodorant spray. 😁

Another reason could be you just enjoy the scent more. Correct me if I’m wrong, but there is no law against women using products for men. 😦

We have so many laws already, don’t we? Isn’t it the best feeling ever to know you can still do this without being persecuted? 😃

Oh my, should I even publish this? What if I’m wrong, and there is such a law? Did I incite you to a crime? I don’t think I could be happy spending my life behind bars. 😱

Forget about it and let me tell you what made me happy. Reviewclub picked me to test the NIVEA MEN Black & White Invisible Fresh Anti-Transpirant Spray in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍

I found some particularly interesting information on https://www.nivea.co.uk/ I wanted to share with you first.

WHY DO WE GET SWEAT STAINS & DEODORANT STAINS?

The science behind them is unglamorous. Their appearance is partly because of the chemicals that are used in antiperspirants: chemicals that are, amusingly enough, there to prevent you from sweating so much.

When your sweat reacts with the bacteria on your skin, it forms sweat stains on your clothing, and certain chemicals, like the aluminum in the deodorant that you are wearing. 

If you were to view sweat on its own, you would find that it is not yellow-colored, but because of these reactions, it turns yellow.

HOW TO REMOVE SWEAT STAINS

If you want to know more about how to get those nasty sweat stains out of your clothes, the good news is that there's no shortage of tried-and-tested methods.

So let's find out how to get rid of them and ensure that you look your best when out and about. Remember, however, that removing perspiration marks often leads to more than a little perspiration!

White vinegar

First, soak the stained part of your clothing item in white vinegar for an hour. Then scrub with a clean toothbrush, flannel, or brush.
Try to be meticulous without being too aggressive with the clothing. Once you finish, put it in the washing machine.
 

Baking soda & hydrogen peroxide

Take three parts baking soda and one part water. Form a thick paste and then rub this mixture into the sweat stain with a clean toothbrush.
If the clothing is white, you can add hydrogen peroxide to make it look extra radiant.

Lemons

Mix an equal part of lemon juice with water and scrub the stain.
Once you have finished doing this, leave the piece of clothing in direct sunlight. This will allow the lemon's natural bleaching properties to take effect.
 

Salt

Salt is a mild abrasive you can use to scrub out the stain.
You'll need to rub vigorously, however, as salt does not have a natural bleaching effect.
 
Now that you know how to get rid of those stains, let me tell you about this new deodorant spray from Nivea.

My opinion on the NIVEA MEN Black & White Invisible Fresh Anti-Transpirant Spray

My husband's favorite color is black, so he has lots of black T-shirts, sweaters, and shirts. He also likes to stay fresh throughout the day, so you might think this deodorant spray would be perfect for him.

I'd have to say it comes pretty close to being perfect. It seems to last much longer than other comparative antiperspirants. The lockable cap is an outstanding characteristic they should include in all deodorants. This ensures the spray won't go off accidentally if it falls to the floor.

What I think is most important is the deodorant prevents and protects against marks and stains on clothing as they say. The only negative for my hubby was the scent. This one from Nivea is his favorite.

Picture by Seadbeady

Not that he dislikes the scent, but he just likes the fresh kick more, so he decided it might be a great idea to get them both in the future. He wants to keep on using his favorite one and plans to use this new one for when he wears black or white. At least until they combine the both. 

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day
