Ara jo’s outfits on Lady Gaga:
I really like Ara Jo’s designs, it is presenting a kind of young glamorous. She uses Lady Gaga as her muse of design, presenting some of her exaggerated look. Her design also has another side of glamorous, not only exaggerates. In her latest collection “Vampire”, I can see some many delicate details on the outfit. She also reminds me one of my favorite designer Alexander McQueen. Ara Jo likes to create exaggerated and dramatic designs, she also has a kind of young style in compare of Alexander McQueen. I believe that she has the ability to become next famous dramatic fashion designer, hope she can presents the glamorous beauty that McQueen created before.
