John Newinn, a talented singer, model, actor, photographer, and even an Elvis impersonator, sought my advice on what to wear for his evening as the Master of Ceremony of the 2016 Miss Chinatown Houston Pageant. We had limited time due to his travel plans, so I had him stop by my boutique, Shop In Wonderland, to get styled the day before the pageant. Formal occasion? We both agreed to go with Japanese designer brand, Atelier Boz.
Fit is one of the most important factors for John when buying a suit. Because of John’s muscular physique, he sometimes alter his suits and jackets to get a sleek and athletic fit.
After trying several distinguished jackets and accessories by Boz, I advised him to go with a light fabric for comfort, and a longer navy blue trim for a stylish fit.
“I only recently got into the world of J-fashion and I love it! I’m excited to be involved with it more in the future.”

Miss Chinatown Houston Pageant begins after a formal dinner with local and prominent guests. After introductions and thanking sponsors, John took the Houston stage as the MC wearing Atelier Boz. To my surprise, his Co-emcee, Channel 11 News anchor Lily Jang, complimented how amazing he looked and had him show off his ensemble in front of the large ballroom audience. Everyone applauded, and I couldn’t be more proud.
“I felt so comfortable in it both on and off the stage and love how elegant it always makes me feel.”
I may have been a little biased, but It’s hard not to notice John stand out on stage among the splendid candidates throughout the pageant.
As the evening closed with the newly crowned Karen Yang as the Miss Chinatown Houston of 2016, I could not help but to feel a sense of accomplishment. I’ve been going to the Miss Chinatown Houston Pageant for eight years, but this year was extra special because Japanese brand Atelier Boz was worn on its stage. How exciting to see history in the making with Japanese fashion!
