Dockers’ Fall Into Khaki for the Malaysian “Fashion Kaki”

DOCKERS-B01

Dockers’ Fall/Winter 2013 Collection showcases the brands latest Alpha Khaki designs, engineered for the Alpha men.

Dockers recently showcased its full range of Fall/Winter 2013 Collection, at the Chandan Gallery in Publika Shopping Gallery. The event also showcased the brands latest Alpha Khaki designs, engineered for the Alpha men. If you think you are the go-getter sort of men and your female friends always refer to you as the Alpha man….. you should be heading to Dockers fashion gallery as soon as you possibly could…. they have the sort of clothing especially designed for man like you. Yes, you, the Alpha man…… 

Well, if you don’t think you belong to this category of men….. well you could always try “Dorkers”….. available exclusively from Petaling Street…….

But seriously, Dockers is always associated with man’s pants, as far as I am concerned…. I have been wearing this brand ever since I was studying in the USA, many many moons ago. And I am still wearing them to this day. I don’t think you need any introduction to this brand and I will spare you the bore and show you some photos instead. 🙂

Starhill Gallery Fashion Week S/S 2013

Tini showcasing the beautiful Red Valentino dress complete with a matching handbag.

This is the time of the year again when all the respectable shopping malls (or mall wanabe) will throw an elaborate party to showcase their tenant’s new fashion collections for the year. This year Starhill Gallery has become the first of the many shopping malls to do so with much fanfare.

The whole Indulge floor was cordoned off by means of switching the operating direction to only one way  – to exit only. Therefore guests were forced to either use the lifts or the only designated escalator near the customer service counter to enter the beautifully decorated venue. I find it a hassle though but it’s a refreshing change from the mundane.

The guests were feted to free flowing drinks and finger food and there is even a studio photography set up by Leica for those who would like to be a model for the day. Overall it was a successful opening party for the mall’s S/S 2013 Fashionweek. The brands that were feature during the fashion showcase include Kenzo, M Missoni, Parosh, Red Valentino, Khoon Hooi, Klutched, McQ Alexander McQueen and Valentino.

L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2012 Grand Finale – Part 2

“The Parisan House of Hairdressing” theme was a story that transmit the idea that hair as a piece of garment that can both embody and transcend fashion, therefore inspiring the hairdressers to see their craft as bespoke couture.

Prior to the winner’s announcement, guests were treated to a spectacular hair show featuring five established L’Oréal Artistic Ambassadors who lend their expertise in creating looks inspired by L’Oréal Professionnel Spring/Summer 2012 Colour Collection. Entitled ‘Artisanal Expressions’, Albert Nico, founder of Albert Nico Boutique Salon; Andy Chan, founder of AndyChan Hair Studio; Kevin Woo, founder of Centro Hair Salon; Miko Au, founder of Miko Galere and Simon Koh, founder of ELLE Hair Studio paid homage to “The Parisian House of Hairdressing”, celebrating the tradition of Parisan haute couture where the art of hairdressing is revered, practiced and perfected. The showcase transmitted the idea that hair as a piece of garment can both embody and transcend fashion, therefore inspiring the hairdressers to see their craft as bespoke couture.

The concept of ‘Artisanal Expressions’ looked into the artisanal work of craftsmanship, creating desire amongst other hairdressers. It is a continuing story of ‘La Couture’ and ‘Retro Nouveau’ with a modern twist with timeless vision of beauty. The story was unveiled in 3 chapters.

Photos of Chapters 1 and 2 were presented in Part 1.

Chapter 3 which is the ‘The Parisian House of Hairdressing’ will be showcased in Part 2 of this blog. Chapter 3 proved yet again why the 5 famed hairdressers were chosen as the L’Oréal Artistic Ambassadors. They were truly creative geniuses in the ‘hairy’ sense and I was really impressed with the combination of the hair pieces, makeup and garments which totally transformed the models into women of our wildest fantasies. A job well done guys!

X Top Model Search 2012 – Malaysia Grand Final.

Sim Hui, Winner of X Top Model Search 2011, making a special guest appearance during the Grand Final of the 2012 edition.

Kuala Lumpur, September 15 2012.

The success of the X Top Model Search 2011 has once again paved the way for the extraordinary conclusion of the 2012 edition at a building aptly named The Icon! The success of X Top Model Search in Malaysia has proven to be a breeding ground for newly minted models in the Malaysia fashion and modelling scene. The inaugural edition last year has produced a few successful models that are now gracing the local magazines and fashion shows regularly. The method deployed by X Top Model Search organisation such as their intensive training program, special shopping malls appearances, brand’s thematic photography shoots, fashion modelling, fashion photography exposure and overseas exposure has proven to produce confident and well trained models ready for the local market.

Most of those that came for this year audition, brought nothing more than their hopes to enter the final selection. Most if not all has no background in modelling, and has never ever step on a runway before. And most  of them do not even know how to execute a decent cat walk let alone posing in front of the judges. But their transformation from a duckling to a graceful swan, within such a short period of time had not only stunned many sceptics but the contestants themselves. In this regards, I really have to credit the founder, Victoria Vikki and Event Director Kenji Chan for their undying commitment and positive attitude to develop the Model Search Industry in Malaysia and also their passion to see through the success of the models personally. Bravo for a job well done. I for one have been following their Organisation since their inception last year and I have to say I am truly impressed with what they have achieved thus far.

For 2012, the X Top Model Search edition has once again produced a stunning array of potential successful models judging by the quality of their cat walk and modelling personality. I wish them all the best in their future modelling endeavour. Good Luck girls! If you are interested to view all the photos taken during the event, click on Read More……. but be warned, there are more than 100 photos inside. 🙂

Vibrant Springfield @ Fashion On 1

Once in a while we will see fashion show where the stylist will dress up the models with more than the brand’s dresses and apparels. They will use their creativity to adorn the models with anything under the sun, such as head gears, shades, arm candies and even colorful socks. So it’s quite refreshing, when Springfield showcased their Spring Summer collection with models carrying sun flowers, groceries bag and even having their models biting the flowers by their steams. Nice touch!

A Cutesy Presentation by Okaidi Obaibi @ Fashion On 1

Okaidi Obaibi presents: A Tintin look-alike! Now where is Snowy & Captain Haddock?

Child models can never ceased to amaze and surprise me whenever they take to the runways. They can sometimes be so confident and other times so freaked out that make the unpredictability of children fashion shows so entertaining and fun to watch. If you have never seen one before, you should make way to one soon with your kids or babies. Who knows? They might be inspired to be a child models too!
