I don’t think I did justice for my first ever fashion show post and I’d like to write it in detail so that one day, I can truly reminisce that moment, In Sya Allah and it might be because I’m not over it yet.
When I received the invitation, only “what to wear?!” crossed my mind. I mean, come on, what do I, a complete newbie in the fashion industry, would wear to a fashion show filled with the nation’s leading fashionistas?
If my cupboard could talk, it would’ve cried because all I ever did on that morning was take clothes, wear it, stand in front of the mirror, then take it off and put it back in and I probably did that about 20 times (pfft, who’s counting?).
I had to be there at 5.30 pm so thank goodness I still had some time to plan my outfit in the morning. Finally, I settled on white on white because I was going for the gracefully sophisticated look and also because it was a headache trying to mix and match clothes (halfway through the show I realised that my outfit resembled the Puteri Islam uniform sans the pink kain -_-‘)
Insyi and I arrived right when another fashion show ended and omgeee, I think that was my first time seeing so many famous people in one place. Like it wasn’t awkward at all, totally kept my cool -___- (I was hyperventilating inside, it wasn’t cool at all).
That was when I saw Vivy Yusof for the first time as if all those amazing people aren’t enough, Vivy had to come out of the Black Box at the same time when I was mentally about to pass out. But it was just a glimpse because about eight to ten people were crowding her getting her photo taken so I just stood there completely gobsmacked.
We finally went into the Black Box (the fashion show took place there) and oh my, I felt super important guys, escorted to Schmiley Mo’s area and we were allowed to sit wherever we wanted (they did it to all the guests but I’m going to ignore that). I have to admit, I felt a tad insecure, that surge of emotion where you feel as if you don’t belong somewhere, yeah. You see, I’ve never had that feeling before, ever and I legit had it before the show started what’s with all the gorgeous creatures that sat in front of me.
But it’s okay, it was just for a while. When the show commenced, I was happy again going gaga on all the baju kurungs. Super nice and beautiful. The designs were just cantik gila macam boleh nangis sebab lawa sangat (try to translate that in english because I couldn’t find the words for that).
And guess what! They also gave ‘goodie bags’ for all the guests (so imagine those who were invited multiple times, omaigod). The goodies in the bag was nice too; lotion, masks, adapters (random but they were given by silkair (?), Singaporean flight) and angpau packets (this I had to include the picture because they were adorable and all good things has to be shared but I don’t think I’ll give anyone money in these packets).
All in all, it was a fantastic experience and you guys should participate in events like this too. Loads of clothing brands will probably do 1 or 2 giveaways during fashion week for raya so grab it. It’ll be an experience that you’ll never forget and I hope I won’t too, In Sya Allah.
Ramadhan will be here in a few days, In Sya Allah and I’m beyond excited! I can already sense the calming environment whats with the National al-Quran Competition is on full swing and Yusuf Taiyoob advertisement is up on the tv like every year. May we all have a wonderful Ramadhan filled with blessings and try to increase our deeds in this holy month, In Sya Allah!
