Lisa Ho dresses.

Lisa Ho Design Philosphy.

Lisa Ho Conquers Online Fashion and the Design World

Author: bizman2008
Born in Australia Lisa Ho had the fashion and textile bug from when she was a young child. Following in the footsteps of her grandmother Lisa began sewing when she was only four. This early experience with fabric and textiles only encouraged her passion, going on to do formal training in fashion design. Her initial stint working for a company led her to a resolve that she wanted to create something of her own. Starting out in the Paddington Markets led to her work being recognized for its unique qualities. This attention gave Lisa the encouragement she needed to begin her brand. Lisa Ho continued to wow the public including several celebrities who fell in love with the romantic and vintage aesthetic, where she could source and create striking textiles.  

Her high profile links to A listers and the major role she takes in shaping the Australian fashion industry prompted the recognition of her work in Australian fashion during the opening of the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Humbled by the appreciation Lisa Ho hopes to inspire other upcoming designer. Reminding us the appreciation of beauty is evident in all forms of design from art to music, it is all an inspiration process.

Like many of Australia's fashion designers, fresh out of college in 1982, Lisa Ho started her career at the Paddington markets with her designs that quickly brought her retail and media attention and began the Lisa Ho brand.

With a design philosophy inspired by the romanticism of vintage textiles, Lisa Ho has been at the forefront of the Australian Fashion Industry for the past 22 years.

The Lisa Ho brand has continued to build into one of the most recognised brands in Australia and has a strong celebrity following with signature pieces being worn by Delta Goodrem, Sarah Wynter, Elle Macpherson, Sarah Michelle Geller, Olivia Newton John and Jennifer Lopez.

Her international reputation, was first recognized during the Sydney 2000 Opening Ceremony, which featured a special Lisa Ho designed segment celebrating her role in Australian fashion.

Top 2010 Fashion Trends

With every new year, fashionistas across the globe eagerly await the fashion world's newest trends – and this year is certainly no different. It's time to say goodbye to asymmetry, baggy pants, and washed out hues, and get ready to welcome a whole to range of vibrant colours, prints and styles.

It seems every year sees a fashion revival of some kind – and this year, it's all about the 80s and 90s. Expect to see biker shorts, bumbags, and bodysuits – for example, from the likes of Rochas, Stella McCartney, Celine, and Donna Karan. Don't shy away from 80s or 90s graphic prints. In fact, the bolder the better. 2010 is also a year to don your inner wear as outer wear. From lace-trimmed slips and corsets to frilly bras underneath sheer tops, you don't have to hide those beautiful intimate pieces anymore. Instead, show them off all you can. Clean cut pieces - for example, crisp white shirts, tailored trousers, and shaped parkas - will also be huge this spring.

When it comes to accessories like handbags, quilted and patchwork designs are at the top of the trend list. However, these designs will also emerge in apparel – particularly as patchwork skirts and springtime jackets. Those looking for an ultra casual look can opt for rustic straw and wicker bags – also among the key fashion accessory pieces this season. Looking for shoes? 2010 has traded sky-high heels for flats, kitten heels, and low-level heels – and Missoni, Louis Vuitton and Jimmy Choo are eagerly offering inspiration.

However, one of the biggest fashion trends for 2010 is in printed apparel and accessories. You're bound to see a lot of pinstripes, graphics, and leopard prints. But two of the most prominent designs will be vintage and tribal prints; from bold, ethnic designs to more intricate tribal patterns, 2010 is the year to flaunt those prints.

And, of course, no trend report is complete without a word or two on colour. It seems 2010 will be the year of blues and yellows – particularly lemon yellow and ice blue. So whether you're shopping for clothes, shoes, or accessories, gravitate towards colours inspired by the sun and the sky. Don't be afraid to combine and layer various shades of either colour. As far as spring's neutral colours go, it's all about fleshy tones such as blush, rose, soft tan and apricot – as relayed by the Warehouse collection.

Retailers everywhere are already rolling out their springtime collections – which means you'll be able to see these trends in action, whether in high street stores, boutiques, or department stores. So get a head start on 2010's springtime fashions, and look your best in the latest trends.
