There are around 30 contestants from 18 regions showcasing their creations for 2009-2010 fall/winter series into the Workshop of Beijing's D.PARK. The pieces involved the favorite fall season colors of white, grey, and black, but also many daring contrasting juxtaposition colors with bold geometric designs, oversized volume, sophisticated folds and swirling corrugation.
Chen Jiawei, a senior student from south China's Shenzhen University won the top prize of the 'Hempel Award' with her white-colored collection, 'Dot-Line-Scene'. "She has drawn the elements, dot, line, scene, from the culture of China's Yi ethnic group, the pattern, style (of their costume) as well as the craftsmanship of ruffle making," said Chen's instructor after she won the award, "However, the overall design comes with a look of grandeur and elegance which may mirror a concept that's quite popular with Western designers. [Her collection] is actually a combination of something local and international."
The hooded designs are my favorite:
Some from the knitwear collection:
And a few more pieces by China's Central Academy of Fine Arts graduate students, Academy of Arts & Design Tsinghua University graduates, or Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology students:

I love the green contrasted with the purple.
I love how the dresses flow and the color that makes each photograph so beautiful.

Just Cavalli Spring Summer 2009 Milan Ready To Wear
Although this dress is full of colors and different animal prints, but somehow it all seem to pull itself together elegantly.
However, many, many, MANY times, the leopard print becomes too much of a 'try-hard' fashion style. Here are a few examples that I will not even bother commenting as I feel it is very self explanatory:
'The Pink Leopard' starring Paula Abdul?
Just to alleviate some of the bitchiness I am radiating right now, I will post up the newest Spring/Summer '09 campaign for Just Cavalli featuring the legendary supermodel Kate Moss with several leopard print pieces that work.
So, Unless you have a good sense of judgment, or you're Kate Moss, please just stick to being human and leave it to the leopards to do their job of wearing their skin.

In London for his new Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream collection at Harvey Nichols. Loving the cardigan with the lining and pocket detail, as well as his blue sneakers.
At the Louis Vuitton Party in Dec 08. Love the pink shirt and the vest, and the mix of jeans with a more formal look on top.
At the opening of his BBC/Ice Cream NYC Flagship Store opening in Nov 07. I love the grey cardigan paired with his t-shirt.
Outside of the David Letterman show. His blue sneakers bring a splash of color to his outfit along with his red hat. I love that he wears clothing from his own brand, unlike the other celebs that "design" their own line.
