Moon in Cancer + Chiron in Pisces | 20 November 2013
 Be truthful, gentle and fearless. #Gandhi ○ With the new day, comes new vision and insight. Revisiting the past for 
 the purpose of learning can be possible at this time, because we are given the bird's eye view, and a bigger 
 space in the heart. We can see how the present holds much more importance as we let go of the old 
 and welcome the new. Everything we think and feel about others will change when we learn 
 to embrace our own personal freedom. We have the ability to heal the past 
 and know that no matter what our life has been up to this point, 
 we are a divine spark of love and light.

Moon in Leo + Sun in Sagittarius | 23 November 2013
 Don't worry, Be happy. Remember the magic of life by walking the path of the inner child. Savoring our passions can 
 be a source of joy now, and whatever we choose to create|express can have a touch of artistry and sincerity 
 as we find a way to connect more with our core center, the heart chakra. With both the Sun and Moon in 
 fire signs, we should start feeling more uplifted and open hearted, and we can soon see that our 
 creative expression has been one of our true guiding lights all along. Blaze the trail*

 It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end. #UrsulaKLeGuin ○ Trust in 
 the strength of your spirit. The new week begins on a good note, with our problem solving skills running at peak 
 performance. We can expect to feel more determined and more focused on tasks at hand to find the best 
 possible solutions. We are reminded that there are many roads to our dreams. We just need to 
 remain open minded, committed, and creative. Live the journey.

The Goddess Aphrodite



● | ● | ● | ●

She clothed herself with garments which the Graces and Hours had made for her and dyed in flowers of spring
such flowers as the Seasons wear - in crocus and hyacinth and flourishing violet and the rose's lovely
bloom, so sweet and delicious, and heavenly buds, the flowers of the narcissus and lily. In such
perfumed garments is Aphrodite clothed at all seasons. Then laughter-loving Aphrodite
and her handmaidens wove sweet-smelling crowns of flowers of the earth and
put them upon their heads - the bright-coiffed goddesses, the Nymphs
and Graces, and golden Aphrodite too, while they sang sweetly
on the mount of many-fountained Ida.

Moon, Jupiter and Varuna in Cancer + the Sun | 24 October 2013
Welcome to the realm of intuition. Our deepest feelings and emotions can take center stage at this time - granting more wisdom and insight. Seeing the truth with genuine compassion and spirit is possible, as we start to appreciate that all is truly a part of being a living human. New clarity ahead. http://youtu.be/9yAxIdkF2Qo

The beauty you see in me is a reflection of you. #Rumi ○ Love is in the air. It's a wonderful time for a little romance and to focus on the more playful side of life. Seeing the world with a heart filled with patience and forgiveness + opening the eyes of the inner child, everything is in perfect harmony.

Moon and Mars in Virgo | 29 October 2013
Life is never stagnation. It is a constant movement, unrhythmic movement, as well as constant change. Things live by moving and gain strength as they go. #BruceLee ○ Bringing back total focus into our daily life, we are motivated once again to put more energy into understanding the connection between inspiration vs action + destiny and free will. Going further ahead in expressing our self more freely and intuitively, we can start seeing more signs from the universe as our dreams begin to take shape. This is our defining moment. Adventure awaits.

Moon in Cancer | 28 September 2013
Our intuition wants to be heard.

Moon in Leo | 29 September 2013
Feel and own your light.

Moon in Virgo + Sun square Pluto | 2 October 2013
Find balance through your patience. There's true inspiration in your courage.
Listen to your questions for insights.

New Moon in Libra + Uranus square Pluto | October 2013
Happy New Moon in Libra! It's another wonderful time for a fresh new start in our life and to send our loving
intentions out to the universe! Although the energies can get a little tricky at this time, with the New Moon
in challenging aspects to Pluto and Uranus (aka planets of intensity + surprises) ● there could be issues
regarding love/ individuality/ equality to think about /// but with faith, understanding, and full
commitment to our values and dreams, we can deal with whatever is in front of us with open
mind and heart. I truly believe that life is a schoolroom, and we're here to learn,
express our passions and create a circle of love and light wherever we go. So
no matter what happens, always try to see the positive side of life and
trust that everything will work out for our highest good
in the end. Just keep believing and keep reaching
for the stars*. * . (/◔ ◡ ◔)/* . * . * . *!

Moon in Scorpio + North Node, Mercury and Saturn | October 2013
There's more opportunity to see things from a different perspective, a more
familiar one - that can lead to new roads.

Moon in Sagittarius + Venus | October 2013
The pain of not doing it can be worse than the pain of doing it. With the energies generally lightening up, our focus
is back on the bigger vision - this time with an unshakable, grounded sense of magic and optimism.

Moon and Pluto in Capricorn + Neptune | 11 October 2013
As we look with love at the root of our goals and dreams, we discover a new level of
clarity - bringing the key to open the eyes of the soul.

Moon and Juno in Aquarius + Mars | 13 October 2013
Even though we are separated spatially, our souls are constantly unified. As we look to the future with brand new
insights, we are reminded of the power we have in the present moment - and get a good glimpse of what
we're truly capable of. The power is within.

Moon, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces | 15 October 2013
It is human nature to think wisely. Moving to the next level of consciousness, we are guided to once again retrace our
journey. To paint our own picture, draw our own personal conclusion on what it means to forgive, let go and
remain clear-minded. A new path unfolding can help us see that all truly is well.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and Uranus in Aries + Pluto | 18 October 2013
It is always the ego that questions because it is only the ego that doubts. A major turning point is possible at this time,
bringing a genuine heartfelt acceptance that all we are is truly the sum of all that we've learnt so far through our
actions and interactions. Finding balance between 'I am' vs 'we are', inspiration vs action - we move
further ahead in expressing our truest passions with full tenacity and originality.

Moon and Amor in Taurus + Neptune and the Sun | 19 October 2013
Dear God, thank you for helping me to only consume, crave, and desire healthful and life-affirming foods,
beverages, and actions. #DoreenVirtue ○ Magical opportunities are dawning, drawing us to new people,
new places and new projects. It's a wonderful period to bring back the universal flow of
abundance into our life, with renewed vigor and well being - just as we greet
the new dawn, the new day, with love, hope and joy.

Moon in Gemini + Mercury Rx and Jupiter | 21 October 2013
What do you know that you know, that you don't know how you know? It's a wonderful period to find more inspiration
from our inner world. The more questions we ask, the more answers can come in the coming days ahead. Our
actions can also be led by our inquisitiveness at this time, enabling more confidence to flow through
us in ways that are truly rewarding and inspiring. A brand new courage awaits.

Y Oh Y | Bronx Magazine Interview



● | ● | ● | ●

An adjective to describe yourself?
Passionate.

When did you realize it was time to launch your first collection?
When everything fell into place! I found my inspiration back in 2009/2010 when I was working at my uncle’s
textile company. Then finding the right kind of fabric, the right production team, the photographer
to help make the campaign, the retailers – everything sort of snowballed from there. The
first collection was launched in June 2011 because I felt it was the right time
to do so, and I’m grateful for that decision.

Usually, how does inspiration for an item or collection is born?
They seem to come to me at the right time, and I like to work things out as I go along. But if I have to be more
specific, then I’d say they mostly come from my imaginations and moods at the time.
They can also come when I see the kinds of fabric I like!

Where do you usually find the inspiration to make your collection?
I can easily find inspirations from art, movies, photographs, nature. But as I’ve mentioned before, I can also find
them when I see the kinds of fabric I like! And I find them by going to fashion events, visiting
traditional fabric manufacturers, and so on.

What is the thing that gets you excited when making your collection?
When things come together in my mind. Ways I can turn the fabrics into wearable creations, because that
feels like figuring out a puzzle! Next I would do the sketches, and then discuss them with
the production team. They’re definitely the most exciting parts for me!

How would you define your style?
Personal, with a mix of classic and contemporary.

Whom is the brand The Y Label created for?
Anyone who is confident, creative, open-minded and rebellious.

Today, who would be the man/woman who more than anyone else embodies the spirit of your brand?
A man, I’d have to say James Franco. He’s wonderful! Super fun and upbeat! A woman,
I love Lily Cole! She’s beautiful, natural, creative and a wonderful humanitarian!

Who have you wanted to dress up?
Daniel Radcliffe. He’s wonderful too! Very talented and artistic! I definitely would love to see him in The Y Label.

An adjective to describe The Y Label mood?
Confident.

How will your next collection be?
Right now I’m focusing on The Y Label’s first collection for women. It’s still in production, but I hope
it can be ready for release sometime this year. The moods, the fabrics, shapes and
cuts will have some similarities to that of the menswear.

A garment and color which represent you?
That’s a hard question, but off the top of my head, red cotton.

A song that represents your style? A film which you would have wanted to be the stylist?
A book that might inspire your collection?
A song, Gypsy & The Cat’s Parallel Universe. As with film, Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby would’ve been great to style,
but a fantasy one like The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus would’ve been just as fun! A book, The Alchemist.

Your favorite artist?
Pablo Picasso.

Your favorite book?
Right now, The Alchemist.

The designer you appreciate most? The collection you will never forget?
John Galliano and his Autumn/Winter 2003 Women’s Ready-to-Wear collection for Dior.
Powerful, colourful and unique – as always coming from Galliano!

Fashion… dream or business? Why?
Fashion is a wonderful dream, but it cannot truly exist on its own. Just like all dreams, they take hard work
and practicality to make them come true. So can I say business of dreams?

Fashion… past, present or future? Why?
It’s mostly the present, the now and what feels best for this moment, because I feel that is what life is all about.
But true creativity can be timeless, so it can also be the past, the present and future all rolled in one!

What is beauty and luxury according to you?
Honesty and authenticity.

Your childhood dream?
To become a painter.

Your motto?
Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. It’s my all-time favourite quote by M. C. Escher!
Simply put, you really shouldn’t be afraid to try something new – not because other people
tell you to, but because you want to, and then see what happens!

Your philosophy?
Follow your heart.

Your future plan?
I’d like to open my own store. Create more items for the men and women’s collections,
for kids, and hopefully some furniture items as well later on.

What makes you feel young & loud?
Being myself!
