Well you’ve probably seen my IG updates from months back when I attended a few shows from Singapore Fashion Week, mostly the young designers show, namely LASALLE Graduation show & Harpers Bazaar Next Gen show. Also attended the Star Creation & Zalora shows but did not manage to snap any nice photos so there’s none from those shows for this post~ 😛
While I definitely enjoyed both LASALLE Grad show and Harpers Bazaar Next Gen show – I find that LASALLE show designs focused more on artistic concepts & were more explorative, understandably as it’s an arts school (and my Alma mater, where I studied Fashion Media & Industries, majoring in Management), while Harpers’ show designs were a lot more “commercialized”, collections that look like they already belonged in the store. There’s no critical judgement from me either ways, as I would love to have pieces from select designers (you’ll know which from my comments/captions below, heh) from both shows in my wardrobe!
Alright, enough with my introductions~ Loving my make up for the day, hence the slew of selfies, heh. Am missing my hair from those days before I bleached it. Lol.
Getting ready to meet my inspiration, Miroslava Duma. In case you don’t know her, she was a fashion magazine editor, currently a street style icon and founder of buro247.com – which is now present in more than 7-8 countries featuring luxury fashion and lifestyle topics. She’s extremely well connected, business minded and savvy! While she still look like a teenager, she’s in her thirties and she has 2 kids! Don’t ask me how she does it!
Met up with Sifra my LASALLE school mate & Smita for the talk!
The emcee did such a bad job honestly. Her questions were so bad, some didn’t even make sense. It would have been much better if Duma and Dion Lee interviewed each other. It was such a waste that we did not get to hear more from the two of them as the questions were a waste of time/did not make sense.Nonetheless, with the little that was shared, it was inspiring to hear from Duma, who shared about having good work ethics – you’ve got to work for it, don’t expect things to drop down from the sky!
And got a pic with her!!! <3 Thanks to Smita! <3
And some ootds at LASALLE~We headed to Providore at Mandarin Gallery for some drinks. I had flat white, they had this pineapple cocktail which was good too!
Snapped a pic of this dude with this crazy and cool tiger head bag.
Headed to Chez Vous to get my hair done for Star Creation later in the evening. Belatedly realize that I should have gone for sleek back hair since I was wearing a rather edgy dress. Ohwells!
With cuties Q-li & Jem whom I met at SFW!
Day 2 of SFW, decided to have my hair done at the salon near my place before heading down!
Before getting my hair done…
While getting my hair done by Shiro.
And after it’s done, selfie taken on the cab! Decided to go for a very defined and red carpet-style hair and makeup look. Sleek hair back is actually no longer on trend since it’s been done 2-3 years back, but who cares as long as I like the look, heh!
Starting with the LASALLE Fashion graduation show – fashion students’ names as captured on the photos:
I love the vibrant, contrasting yet complementary colours in this collection! Super love this outfit! Want the entire look!
Not exactly high fashion runway quality, and it reminds me of Japanese Manga “Naruto” but there’s something cool about this sporty chic meets Asian royalty prints collection that I like.
Blur pic, but shows designer name Hwang Jun.A clearer shot. My friend, Chua YingHui’s (went to Japan together on a school trip, you can read about the trip on my blog) prints. Collection fit for the fashionable boys! I would wear these prints too!
And Hair of the day! Met up with our fashion tutors post show.
On to Harpers Bazaar show! With the editor & emcee. Photo taken by me, nice right? 😛 Didn’t get good shots of the winner’s collection by Silvia Teh. Inspired by Japanese culture, her collection won the judges over. I realize that in general, fashion collection with Japan inspired collections tend to do well. I really like Ha Hong Lam’s magic mushroom inspired prints and elegant designs.
With Circe & Lionel, our LASALLE fashion dept head & tutor respectively!With Clozette gals Cass, Anico, Kersie & Smita~Ended the day at Genki Sushi with dear Belle. Food here is so good, and it’s so cute that they serve you the plates on a train~ I wanna go back!
