About a couple of days ago, I received a text message. It was an invitation to an interview and a special feature in a September issue of a magazine. A huge local magazine. As most people in the fashion scene knows, September issue is a big fashion issue, annually.
I was honestly shocked. Excited and nervous nonetheless, but was definitely in shocked. I mean, I always feel I’m just a small little person in this industry. Yes, I have been in it for quite sometimes, doing a little of this and a little of that, all for my love for fashion. But, I still feel it’s minuscule as compared to everyone else in the industry. I was automatically shy about it, but encouraged and happy to receive such news. This is an opportunity I must not missed. So, I replied with a smiley face and accepted the invitation graciously.
Then, I was told that there will be a photoshoot for it. Alamak! I haven’t been in front of the camera for years. I have been behind the scene for so long that I find the idea of being the subject of a camera as a chore and I feel very shy about it. But then again, this is a not a fashion editorial shoot. I don’t have to do the “H to T” model poses and all, right? So, with that thought in my mind, I was soothed and became excited about the shoot.
I was advised by the magazine to dress the way I am. My personal style. Great. A bit pressured though, but I love it that I am going to be featured as myself. So, what to wear? How much can I play dress up? Which look should I go for? Will I overdo it? Oh, there were so many questions in my head. This, must stop.
I flipped through some magazines to get some inspiration and I finally got it. It’s very, Me. And I can’t wait to show it to you. But of course, I can’t. Not yet. Anticipation darling. I too, have to wait for the magazine to be out before I can share it with you.
So here are some photos that I could share with you. Some teasing doesn’t hurt to make you want more. (:
The photoshoot went very well. I wasn’t the only one being featured. There were some friends too. Who? Shhhhh…it’s a secret for now. But I’m telling you it’s gonna be worth the wait. I know I can’t wait but patience is a virtue they say.
So, watch this space always for my updates once its out. Stay tuned!
