The editorial originally presented 32 male and female models of different ethnicity and backgrounds. Each represented beauty and strength in their own unique way. And I love the styling they did here. Raw, fierce, edgy and sharp. I’d wear all of ’em. You can check out here for the whole editorial.

For The F Words, I wanted to highlight the Asian models from this beautiful editorial. Being an Asian myself, I raise my hat to all the Asian talents. Be it, the Oriental, the Exotic, the Natives and other ethnicity. Here are some of the fresh faces hitting the international modelling scene with kappow! Watch out for them! My fave? Shanina, Pritika and Lily Zhi. Which one is your fave?

Fashion Styling : Behind The Scene of “Reflections” Photo Shoot

DSC_0857

Few weeks ago, Idan asked me if I want to do styling for a test shoot. There can only be one answer and I obviously said Yessssss…!

The shoot was scheduled three days after Idan’s invitation. I was still in KK and was only coming back to KL a day before the shoot. Go figure lah! This was gonna be a challenge. A minor one but a challenge nonetheless and I decided to go for it.

The photo shoot team were:

Photographer: Idan
Art Direction: Idan and Myself (Nareez Zabidi)
Stylist: Myself (Nareez Zabidi)
Wardrobe Assistant: Iskandar
Hairstylist: Ckay Liow
Make Up Artist: Alvin Loh
Models: Yuen & Noelle

The theme and concept for the shoot is Reflections. Basically anything shiny, mirror-ish, metallic and reflective will be the main accents. Based on the references, I’m going to need to do some DIY to achieve some of the looks. After some brainstorm, I had some ideas, which I will share only after the edited photos are out soon.

Upon landing in KL, I contacted a dear friend, Megat from Syaiful Baharim to loan some outfits for the shoot and he fabulously agreed. Yay! So credits to Syaiful Baharim too for giving the green light. On the day of the shoot, I made a stop at Syaiful Baharim Atelier to get the outfits. Right before the shoot, I made a stop at a hardware store to get some supplies for my on-the-spot DIY for the shoot.

Excited? Do tune in to The F Words for final edited photos. For now, here are some sneak peaks and teasers for yah!

Fashion Feed : J Mendel Resort 2014 Collection.

I love J. Mendel’s Resort 2014 Collection. The lines, patterns, shapes and silhouettes were all well executed.

“Ma Sirène”, a poem written by Robest Desnos was said to be part of Gilles Mendel’s inspiration behind this collection. It was about the underwater blue siren. There weren’t much blue in the collection though. There were black, white, cream, and soft pink. I can see some layering done. Probably inspired from the waves of the sea.

There were a lot of stripes. I love stripes. Mendel has always avoided this but he wanted to experiment it this time and it worked. The stripes on the dresses and skirt were flattering and dramatic but subtle in a way. Sheer organza was prominently used. A peek-a-boo accent in all the right places.

So tell me, which one is your favourite?
