Brand Story


I Design and STYle women using the art of illuSIONISTs to enhance their appearance bringing out the best style. It is from these passions that I came up with the 'DSTYSIONIST' brand name. After revealing this on social media and receiving many positive responses, I am able to make this decision confidently.

Besides being my favourite colour, studies also show that blue is the most soothing colour. I continue to aim for the stars even though fashion always come full circle. They are also my newly discovered extra sensory perception. These explain their presence in the logo. 

The woman in the silhouette is my muse, Amanda. She the feature of my first illustration. She is now immortalised here, as the blue sun brightens the fashion scene.

Fully Armed Name Cards



As I do NOT have qualifications and experiences in graphic design, I have to learn from mistakes and public feedback. My NEWLY replenished Name Cards have clearer texts. The fifth (5th) and additional tip for name card design will be:

5)    NO overlapping - Ensure that texts do NOT overlap with logos or symbols (if any)

Now, we are fully armed!

WONDER WOMAN - Rise of Feminism

 
Wonder Woman (DIANE PRINCE) has come out at a perfect time ;-)  She is a much needed icon for women in these desperate times of gender inequalities and adversities.


Elegance and mystique. 

In design functions, all are well. Wonder Woman and her Amazonian warriors' costumes have vertical and 'V' shape linear contours. Both give a taller and streamline appearance. These are very functional for some of her bigger build warrior counterparts. The mostly gold colour is suits very well here. It reflects value and superiority. It also camouflages them perfectly in the home island landscape.  


On the whole, I still continue to question superhero costume movie adaptations. They are always far from the original. The original always has more vibrant COLOUR.

The blue ballroom dress that DIANE PRINCE wears at the dance scene is also glamorous and functional. The big 'V' shape chest point drape neckline brings out the best in feminine physique by enhancing strengths and accentuating height. The shin length trail on her rear left shoulder further strengthens this. Unfortunately, I am NOT a fan of ground dragging trails on her right rear hemlines. I do NOT think this is practical >:-( 

On the movie, the scene that moves me the most is when Wonder Woman rises from the battered front line and single 'shieldedly' attack while fending of intense gun fire by enemy soldiers.




"Our generation is becoming so busy trying to prove that women can do what man can do that women are losing their uniqueness. Women are crated to do everything a man CANNOT do", quote fits these scenes perfectly.

I believe women are capable of groundbreaking and sky reaching achievements. As a supporter of 'He for She' campaign, I personally write here, "FORGET men's capabilities. Create YOURSELF". 

For men who have faith in women, this movie is a MUST watch in the CINEMA! For women, my review is self explanatory ;-)
