If you thought designer clothing are only for the rich and famous, think again. The invasion of foreign brands have opened doors to everyone who loves designer clothing but has a budget to watch.
Now, you don't have to go to fancy stores to get items with tags that shout the designer's name as malls are already filled with various shops that offer affordable tops, bottoms, and what-have-you, all made by the popular men and women of fashion.
Perfect example? Uniqlo and Christophe Lemaire.
Lemaire and his team
Lemaire, a Frenchman who previously worked for luxurious brands such as Lacoste and Hermès, is the newest artistic director of Japanese brand Uniqlo. You should be excited because with him at the helm, you can be assured that every purchase you make is of top-notch quality.
Excited? We certainly are. We'll get to experience the Lemaire touch as Uniqlo introduces its new line, Uniqlo U, on October 14.
