It was an entire week of one of the biggest fashion events in Singapore. From our local labels to having Diane Von Furtensburg, Thakoon and Victoria Beckham coming, it was really a huge deal. Moreover, for all fashionistas in Singapore, it was an excellent time to showcase your #ootd!
I was certainly very blessed to have been given the opportunity to meet the founders of the extremely popular online store Love Bonito, Rachel Lim & Viola Tan, together with one of Singapore’s top style blogger, Melissa Celestine Koh. I received backstage access to the Tex Saverio x Love Bonito fashion show.
If you don’t happen to know who is Tex Saverio, I’m sure you would have heard of the Hunger Games movie. He was the designer who designed Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games Catching Fire where she wore the dramatic chiffon and metal wedding gown for the advanced publicity material. His works have also been worn by Ayumi Hamasaki and Lady Gaga. By the way, Tex is from our neighbouring country, Indonesia.
So, before the fashion event, I visited my hair sponsor, BRANCHÉ. My stylist, Kai couldn’t make it for the last minute appointment, so they had another top stylist, Ichi to do my hair. I did a hair treatment and then hair styling.
Kai was using the VIP room so I sat at the non-VIP area this time. It was still very exclusive because the sides they have got partitions so you won’t know who is sitting beside you.
As usual, I ordered my favorite TWG chamomile tea.
After the treatment is over, it was time to do some styling. Ichi did some braids for me.
And it’s done!
The speckles you see on my hair are gold dust. In real life, it shimmers.
Loving my hair for the day!
Here’s one with the hair stylist.
Then, my husband picked me up and we headed to the fashion show.
Fashionistas standing around. My outfit for the day.
Shoes: Stuart Weitzman
In this photo you can’t see my shoes coz’ the husband didn’t move back enough as there were people standing around, there will be another outfit photo later.
Finally I met Melissa who brought me backstage. Tex Saverio was standing just behind us, checking the oufits.
Then, Rachel and Viola was introduced. They were very nice and warm especially Rachel. She made us feel very welcomed and she’s very personal too. Viola was a little more shy but she was also nice. I asked her how long it took for the collaboration to happen between Tex Saverio and Love bonito. All in all it took about 2 months. It was very rush but it was all good. I’m already digging their pieces! Can’t wait for the launch.
The hustle and bustle of backstage. Rui En was there too for an interview.
Then, we were ushered out to attend the show as it was starting soon and guests were asked to be seated. Alot of celebrities were spotted, including Rui En, Ah Boys to Men Tosh and Joshua, Rozz, Vernon and his blogger wife Jayne, blogger Xiaxue etc.
Let the show begin.
I love the outfit below the most.
I think the entire collection was somewhat of a nature/forest dark theme with some hues to it. It was really pretty.
After the show was over, we went to have dinner at our favorite food place in Orchard- Chatterbox chicken rice. No photos coz we go there all too often.
Digress a little that’s my entire outfit.
After which, we went to Mitzo at Grand Park Orchard for complimentary Belvedere martinis, courtesy of Singapore Fashion Week. The staffs were warm an nice and the bartender gave us some suggestions on what to have for the martinis.
The blue tank which you see are filled with real jellyfishes.
Close up of my fringe an therefore a selfie.
Last but not least, here’s what I got in the goodie bag from the show, which consisted of multiple brochures, Tex Saverio and Love Bonito shawl for the VIPs, which you can see I used as a backdrop for the things showcased, some writing materials from Kikki K, a Strongbow Apple Cider drink which is in my home fridge :P.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Till then, talk to you soon!
