Deanna Pei-Ju Lo Fall 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion week. From Taipei, Taiwan, Deanna wanted to create “a modern Teddy Boy look” in her collection. She took inspiration from a borrowed-from-the-boys feel, but adding the femininity by using soft, luxurious metallic fabric. Black and navy color dominated Deanna’s collection creating a midnight sensation.
