Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Oh Wow! (Murakami Pt II)

I got caught up in Murakami fever! I couldn't help it. As I drove on Sunset downtown the pink Murakami billboard looked down on me and the world...goading me...calling me!

Who else got caught up in Mura-madness? Pharrel and Nigo of Billionaire Boys Club fame were in town and Keanu Reeves was there last night too.

15 minutes of fame.
I cornered Murakami with my UK-imported Kanye West "Stronger" 12".
His assistant looked at me as he was doodling Mr DOB and said, "that's from the UK..."
"You know your stuff", I replied.
"It was my project", she said as she moved Murakami through the crowd that was closing in.

He's famous. I'm famous ;-)

Halloween goblins and ghouls
I loved that it was Halloween weekend. As Britt said, it's an excuse for all the girls to dress like hoes! Hah, love it! There were some freaky folks out at the Murakami show...but I was too shy to get pics of all of them. Which are your faves...mine have to be the "Kitty girls", for all the right reasons. ;-)

Louis Vuitton x Murakami
I survived the night without getting my LV jacket confiscated by the LV brand police...nope, mine wasn't made in Paris! (Paris wasn't cool enough in the 90s to design my velour LV baseball jacket. Hahhaa.) But, in the apres-party Japanese restaurant I had an incident with a Chinese girl and a glass of water. I was not best pleased!

A bit more trivia...I just read that Pharrel was LV's face for 2006 and BBC designed a range of sunnies for LV.

Special thanks to: Brandon Shigeta and Eric Nakamura (Giant Robot) for the additional pictures.
