Hey y'all! Sorry I've been neglecting my blog.. I've been busy studying for my final exams! I've been meaning to blog about Fashion Week for a long time but just couldn't find the time.. Anyway, here it is!
It has always been my wish to attend Fashion Week, to see the beautiful models strut down the catwalk in unique designer pieces that are out of this world. So it was like a dream come true for me when I got invited to the Mercedes-Benz Stylo Asia Fashion Week (MBSTYLOAFW) or better known as the inaugural Malaysia Fashion Week (MFW)! Thank you Jess and Jane my dearest babes for bringing me there :D
The event lasted for a whole week but because of my final assignment, I had to miss most of it. I did manage to go for the MFW Gala Night and MFS & MBStyloAFW Fashion Shows though, which is enough to make me ecstatic already! I'll be writing two separate posts for each day so do stay tuned for my Fashion Show post tomorrow!
There was so much to see and do at the event. I think the best thing for me to do is to show you through pictures. :) Enjoy!
Before entering the fashion hall, there are many booths outside as part of the FACIT Trade Fair. FACIT is an abbreviation for Fashion, Accessories, Cosmetics, Interior and Textile and is a lifestyle installation within INTRADE.
Before entering the fashion gallery in the centre of MATRADE, we walked along the gown display section which featured gowns from various Asian designers. Here are a few of my favourites!
These are creative pieces made by young and budding designers. This dress is made with PLASTIC SPOONS!
The TV Cable dress. So creative!
My favourite part of the Fashion Exhibition is the carousel right in the middle of the hall. It just oozes elegance and class!
Check out all the designer pieces on display!
Whoa a two-storey high gown?!
Nope, these are not mannequins but real-life models posing perfectly still in the midst of the mannequins. They're so gorgeous :o
Since this is the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, how can you forget the classic Mercedes right? What a beauty.
Managed to take a photo with Miss Chinese International Pageant 2012 and 2013 winner, Miss Denise Camillia. I look so awkward next to her omg. -_-

With Jane and our new friend, Chris who is also a journalist for a French publication.
After dinner, we headed upstairs for the fashion show. It started late so we mingled around the Fashion Showcase booths. Each designer had a booth and you could spot them and have a chat with them. Most of them are really friendly and nice! I especially love this range of gowns from Angela Chung, an Indonesian designer!
Rafi Ridwan, 12-year-old Indonesian designer!
This dress that attracted me the most was from Rosenthal Tee of Philippines!
Check out the beautiful set-up inside the hall! Not even kidding, it was SO packed and we couldn't really get good seats.
Officiating ceremony by our Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Dato' Hj Muhyiddin Hj Mohd Yassin, YB Datuk Noraini Ahmad (Chairman of MATRADE), Datuk Dr. Wong Lai Sum (CEO of MATRADE and Chairman of MFW), Datuk Prof. (Dr) Jimmy Choo (Honorary Advisor of MFW), Datuk Nancy Yeoh (President & CEO of STYLE International: Co-Chairman of MFW) and Mr Roland Folger (President & CEO of Mercedes-Benz Malaysia).
Mr Dennis Lau, Malaysia's funkiest violinist, opened the stage and got the crowd pumped up for the fashion show!
The catwalk comprised of models wearing the signature pieces from designers for the new season. There were 61 designers from 15 countries and 100+ models on the runway so obviously I can't show you all the photos I took, even though I'd love to. You can check out this video made by my friend Jane, HERE!!
Spot your favourite piece!! The models and dresses all so gorgeous, it's like eye-candy to me. :p
Selfie with Jess, Jane, Adriana and Suri!
Ending the post with my OOTN. I couldn't find a gown so I opted for a jumpsit instead. Hope I didn't look TOO casual..
