In the Spring 2007 collection he presented on Wednesday, September 13th in the Atelier at Bryant Park, Richard Chai once again hewed close to the Asian-tinged minimalism for which he's become known the past few seasons, with wonderfully wearable results.
Citing Irving Penn's flower photos and Bruce Davidson's "Brooklyn Gang" images as his jumping off point, Chai navigated between the flou of one and the urban edginess of the other seamlessly, for the most part, in a collection that could easily go from day to night and uptown to down.

Steve J and Yoni P are CSM and LCF graduates and Yoni Pai has already wowed the fashion crowd with her collection at the LCF Centenary MA show in January.  Steve J and Yoni P recently showed their collaborative collection on the Off schedule at London Fashion Week  which managed to balance Mongolian/Tibetan tribal costumes with modern contemporary wear.

Inspired by mystical Tibet, Steve and Yoni sent out a mouthwatering selection of mens and womenswear that has a distinctly tribal feel to it. Texture, pattern and colour (red, purple, burnt orange, olive green) are key elements in pieces that range from woollen coats and knitted jumpers to printed skirts and embroidered blouses. Models, both boys and girls, wore long plaits decorated with specially created metallic discs and we're loving those orange leather 3/4–length leggings with knitted cuffs, the leather top hats and the unisex patent platform slippers with sheepskin trims.

Magna Carta 2 is the followup to the PC game released in 2002.
The follow-up to Korean developer Softmax's ancient fantasy RPG, expanding on the PC/PS2 original with this next-gen sequel. Magna Carta 2 Japan

Magna Carta: Tears of Blood is a generally unremarkable game that manages to pull itself together thanks to its story and interesting characters.

Magna Carta: Tears of Blood takes place in the world of Efferia, where two races, the humans and the Yason, are locked in a bitter struggle for control of the land. The humans and the Yason are pretty much the same. The Yason are a bit more in tune with nature, and they have strange-looking ears, but functionally there isn't much of a difference between the two races. You control a hotheaded transvestite named Calintz, who is the captain of a group of mercenaries known as the Tears of Blood. The game picks up the story just as the humans launch a massive attack on the Yason in an attempt to end the war once and for all. The Tears of Blood join the effort, but the attack is foiled by the mysterious Queen Amilia of the Yason. As the Tears of Blood retreat, Calintz meets a strange amnesic girl named Reith, who has mystical healing powers beyond anything anyone has seen. more
