Launch of Women’s Fashion Week 2011 Haute Couture Exhibition at Marina Bay Sands

Last Thursday, my girlfriends Bini, Kat and I attended VIP Launch of Women’s Fashion Week Haute Couture Exhibition, thanks to Senatus, the online magazine that’s bringing us all these fashion goodness. ๐Ÿ™‚

We had classes in the day, so we proceeded to Bini’s pad to watch half a movie (Drag Me to Hell which was too much for me to bear, so I pleaded / took the remote and shut it :P) before we freshen up and change for the night’s event! We also took the opportunity to spam some photos. ^^V

I really like my new bangs with a new coat of purple dye! ^^

Here’s a picture of us posted on Senatus website. ๐Ÿ™‚

A selection of dresses by the 8 french hautes couturiers were on exhibition. Here are just a few that were presented!

This dress is designed by Eymeric Francois.

This is by Gustavo Lins. I like the warrior-like buckle elements of the dress.I forgot to note who designed this purple dress, but it’s one of the most striking coloured dress exhibited. *Update* This dress is designed by Maxime Simoens! ๐Ÿ™‚The reason why I post about this dress is because…Blair from Gossip Girl wore it! She is wearing a dress by Maxime Simoens. Note a funny looking Serena standing behind her. ๐Ÿ˜›ย Chairman of WFW 2011 was there to greet the press and VIPs. He says it will be the first time 8 french haute couturiers will be showing outside of Paris! It is such a landmark fashion event, happening in Singapore. ๐Ÿ™‚A short preview collection byย Alexis Mabille! He says this is a teaser of what he will be showcasing, all of the dresses are white because during his actual runway collection he will showcase his coloured dresses. The models look like fairies in these dresses. There is an ethereal feel and they remind me of how the female immortals dress like in old chinese dramas!ย Guess where we went after the event?

MBS Cold Storage Specialty store! HAHA.

I thought it’d be funny to take photos with the food and stock. So here are a few goofy shots of us!

With Andy Warhol’s favourite and approved Campbell Soup Can.
One shot of the Queen of Poses!
I meant to head home after the event because I was lugging a big bag but my girlfriends Bel and Jacq convinced me to head out to Overeasy to meet new friends and some drinks. After some drinks our new friends brought us to Avalon as they got us on their friend’s list for the night. So there I was, back at MBS for the second time that night. Haha. The night was uneventful for me, but I can’t say the same for the other girls. ๐Ÿ˜› In anycase, here’s the beautiful scenery just outside the club.

Back in those days, Nanyang (as Singapore was then known) was the stuff of dreams. Now in the 21st century, it still is the stuff of dreams and many more to come. ๐Ÿ˜€

Wishing you a blessed week ahead! Wish me all the best in finding and securing a wonderful internship! I need your prayers!
