NEW YORK (Oct. 28, 2012) — Mochi Magazine’s Fall 2012 issue celebrates style, encouraging readers to get creative, and show off their personalities. In addition to sharing our favorite fashion and beauty trends, Mochi profiles iconic individuals whose distinctive styles have kept them at the forefront of their industries.
Mochi’s cover star is Korean-born fashion designer Marissa Webb, who previously worked at J. Crew for 11 years and is now stepping into the spotlight with her own solo line. Webb shares her own inspiration for her new collection and demonstrates how creative integrity, mixed with a strong work ethic, can lead to success.
Personal style also embodies lifestyle. Mochi asked actors Daniel Henney and Steve Byrne about how their unique backgrounds have influenced their work. Heartthrob Daniel Henney’s humble attitude has led him to international success, while standup comedian Steve Byrne’s hard work landed him a hit new show, Sullivan & Son.
Readers can incorporate runway trends into their everyday outfits with tips from Mochi editors in our accessories photo-shoot, fall fashion spread, and our tips for dressing for a job interview. Mochi embraces inner beauty, too—one writer accepts her monolids, and we interview celebrity makeup artist Taylor Chang-Babaian, author of Asian Faces. Also highlighted are popular Asian-American YouTube beauty gurus, who can guide readers to achieve perfectly styled looks.
Style isn’t just limited to clothing and beauty–anybody can get creative with different mediums. Mochi spoke with Jimmy Wong and Ashley Adams of YouTube’s Feast of Fiction, where the two have brought their own flair and flavor to the world of cooking. And two young aspiring politicians are inspiring us to make a change during election season.
