For the first time, an entourage of more than a dozen personalities, influencers and artistes from Singapore and around the region joined the Orchard Fashion Runway. They include JJ Lin [Singapore]; VJ Daniel [Indonesia]; Min Chen [Malaysia]; Laureen Uy [Philippines]; Aisyah Aziz [Singapore], Sheila Sim [Singapore], Hayley Woo [Singapore], and more. I was invited to the show by Saffron Comms as a media partner. It’s my first time to a fashion show – while I didn’t really know what to expect, I am glad I have Shawn with me and at the end of it all, I am sure this will not be my last fashion show!
Read to the end of the post coz I will be doing 2 giveaways with 4 deluxe size Shiseido Skincare samples!! (Local SG and international!)
So that night, Orchard Road was barricaded and transformed into a super long run-way with models strutting down the runway – Samsung Fashion Steps Out is in fact Singapore’s longest and largest fashion show! More views, less words – let my pictures and vlog show you the spectacles of the show!
Here are some quick snaps from the show!
These kids for Fox fashoin were amazing! Squeals could be heard from the crowd when they appear and they got the loudest applause for their dance! The youngest (above) is only 4 years old! Just what kind of grooming could produce these well behaved and confident children?!
My fav of the lot – bold colours that brings out individuality and carries a unique personality – never taking yourself too seriously! Life is all about the adventures you’ve been through and the clothes you wear should carry some trances of these adventures!
Of course, we have to take some mandatory shots with our friends!
