January 8, 2010
If you’ve picked up the January 2010 issue of AsiaLIFE, you’ve likely noticed the first installment of our new fashion series “On the Scene”, featuring the keen eye of Massimo Ferrari Boutique founder and AsiaLIFE columnist Luis Antonio Torres and the superb photography of photo editor Fred Wissink. Antonio and Fred hit the streets to seek out some standout fashion in Ho Chi Minh City, and it seems that people are taking notice. We received this email earlier today:
My name is Chau and I am a big fan of Asialife magazine. On fashion pages, vol 22, I am impressed with the fashionable look of the hair dresser named Ton with photo taken by you. I’d love to try my hair styled with him so please give me his salon address if you have it by chance.
Thanks Chau–we’re glad you liked the spread. You can find Ton’s salon at 597 Nguyen Trai St., Ward 7, District 5. Tell him AsiaLIFE sent you (this will in no way procure you preferential treatment, but you know, it’s nice to be acknowledged).
For everyone else who liked January’s fashion pages, keep your eye on the blog, as we’ll soon be featuring more photos and fashion insight from Antonio and Fred’s first sojourn into Vietnam’s fashion scene. We hate to leave good material on the cutting room floor.
