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 Diary : An Interview and A Special Feature in A Magazine.

DSC_0406bAbout 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!
