Amber Shi: Mix


Photography and Brand Concept by Amber Shi, Copyright 2018




When it comes to mix and match your clothes, there is no universal equation. The attraction of mixology lies in “clash beauty” where different elements of fashion, colors and styles are combined together to create a unique look. The brand concept revolves around several ideas, including “you are as beautiful as you are”, “bold and young”. In a world where conformity is widely pursued, being yourself and expressing yourself through your clothes becomes a bold but exciting idea.

Moreover, it doesn’t take a whole outfit to create this “clash look”. Even when you are wearing all black, adding some “pop pieces” can all of a sudden brighten up your whole outfit. Pop pieces are jewelry, scarves, belts, shoes, handbags or any small details that may represent your personality. Growing up in China, I was asked to wear the same uniform as everyone else to school every day. After coming to the States, I had more freedom to choose my own wardrobe and started to develop my own style. The most important aspect of “mix and match” is to be confident about yourself and be who you are. There is no standard of beauty of the choice of color when it comes to your personal brand, and you are as beautiful as you are.
