Remember how I wrote that article on fashion designer Moo Piyasombatkul for the Concordiensis in the fall? (blog post available here) Well, last week I was helping my mother pick out new glasses and stumbled across the most amazing Versace pair that obviously drew inspiration from Moo’s novel designs. While the Versace design is a bit subtler and has some ’50’s Ray-Ban influence, the pair’s white details definitely hearken back to Moo’s porcelain accents. My mom would never go for them, but I was able to coerce my little sister into modeling the fabulous frames!
About The Author
My name is Catherine Elizabeth Ziac (Cat, for short) and I am a senior at Union College in Schenectady, NY. When I'm not studying for my major in economics or my minor in Russian, you can find me skimming through catalogs, playing the flute, fishing, online window shopping, chatting with my sisters (my twin, Julia, studying physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA, or my little sister Maddy, currently a senior in high school), or out and about in good old Schenectady with my wonderful Union friends! I love pink nails, long showers, office supplies, and going to the public library. I spend too much time looking at blogs and skimming the WSJ online, but I still believe in the merits of a hand-written letter. I am always in the mood for yogurt and granola and am never without a piece of gum. I usually answer "blue" when asked my favorite color, but I know in my heart that it's always been and always will be garnet!
