Review & Sneak A Peek.....

(Photo from Style Insider )

Yesterday I was working backstage from my university GFW show:)
 We started off with checking the garments to see if it need pressing or not,when the models arrive we then move to to fittings, afterward of course is the actually show! everything was running really smooth until the last outfit!it was a jumpsuit without any zip so it was really hard to identitfy the back and front,we end up had to put it on him for like three times until we got it right,I was have a panic attack already and on top of that the woman was dealing with the line just had to come and had a go at me " you should have figure this out earlier" but what she didnt understand was" ITS REALLY HARD TO PUT IT ON WITHOUT ANY ZIP!!!" Thanks god we finally had it on him but he had to be in line already,with no time to fix it at all...etc Lucky for me,when I looked around I saw him was still standing there with just 5seconds to spare before just he go on stage,I ran up to fix the outfit really quicky with people around me telling me not to panic but how can I not panic,I never been this panic in my life before but I am just glad we made it at the end!!!

But over all the whole day was just AMAZING!and I am not gonna lie,my model he was so lovely :D I am trying to find pictures of the show (couldn't take any because I was backstage) so just have a sneak a peek of some of the clothes and models for now :)

Style Bubble At UCA Rochester

Couple weeks ago we were honored to have Susan Lau from Style Bubble to come in to our uni (UCA Rochester) and give us a talk about her blog.It was such a great experience for me as a student as well as a blogger, and also at that time I was working on an article on "How blogging has become such a big thing in the fashion industry", it helped me a lot with it and got a lot of useful facts/information,so of course at the end I got quite a good grade for it :D

I am sure everyone know she is a  powerful fashion player,how amazing she is...etc but I really want to say "SHE REALLY IS AMAZING!!!" and I wish I did go and speak to her after the talk,I wish I did even more when I found out she can speak cantonese? on her blog today!damn it :( Can we go back to that day again,pretty please?:(


P.S I got an exciting week coming up,heehee :D

(The models)

(Photos of the collection)

(Designer-Julio Doherty)

Last week today one of my best friends,Julio has his first very own fashion show,I known him for 4 years now and I have watched him grown up as a person as well as a designer,he desevre everything he got now,because he worked hard for them.

Unfortunately,I wasn't at the show to see the collection itself but I got to say I am very very very proud of him and the collection is amazing,love every single garments in it but if I have to pick my favorite,it have to be the last garment,which was model by his girlfriend, Jacqueline :). Lucky for me,he is selling them so I am trying to save up and buy it off him but personally I think he should give it to me for free as my 21st birthday present :P (Joke)

And you can watch the whole show HERE,I hope you guys will like the collection as much as I do :)


P.S he is a student who is currently in his 2nd year in menswear at London College Of Fashion and intern for Gareth Pugh.

Being A Model.

I promise I haven't gone crazy or changed my look or anything,guys!!! :D
I was modeling for 1st and 2nd years fashion design student fashion show today and I really loved the make-up,I felt like a geisha with my red lips.haha :D
This was a totally last minute thing.literally got asked in this morning!I was suppose to just model for just one outfit but at the end the tutor kept giving me clothes so I ended up with FIVE and I didnt have a dresser to help me! :( it was madness at the backstage,clothes were everywhere and because I was the only girl who has five outfits so when it get to the last two I had to get off stage ran to my next outfit,put them on and I was on stage again,got off stage then on stage again for the finale!!and the worst thing was,the last dress was really really really short,it just about to cover my bum and I had to kept pulling it down on the runway,thanks god I didnt fall over or anything!

Seriously being a model is not a easy job!but I had so much thing though :)

What do you think of the make-up?
