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?

Fashion Style : Flying off in Fierce Utilitarian Chic


Utilitarian Chic 01Utilitarian Chic 02Utilitarian Chic 03Utilitarian Chic 04c

This is the day I fly off to Kota Kinabalu (KK), Sabah. To chill. To breathe.

I made a little extra effort this time and chose to rock this look to travel. Fierce Utilitarian Chic look was what I aimed for.

I don’t usually travel in shorts except if I’m flying to an island, but KL is extremely hot and humid. I figured that the aircraft would be like a freezer as it always is, so I pulled up the mesh leggings (yes, it’s leggings, not stockings) with my basic white top and the brown boots I got at a steal price! The army jacket is actually for male. A real army jacket. But it was the perfect finish to my Utilitarian Chic.

Top: H&M. Shorts: Cotton On. Belt: Pull & Bear. Mesh Leggings: flea market. Boots: River Island. Jacket: from a friend. Handbag: Tod’s. Sunglasses: Rack by Kila Fairy. Bracelet & Skull Ring: Lovisa.  Leopard Ring: House of Eight. Watch: Casio Databank Calculator

The F Words

image

When we say the F words, what are the first few words that come up of your mind? The word F*ck defintely was the very first one for me. Haha.

Truth is my favourite alphabet is F. Hence, The F Words was chosen for me to talk and share about my take on Fashion, Food, Feast, Festivals, Fun times, Faves, Family, Friends and I could go on and on Forever with F.

The F word for today is First. For First write up. First article. First for all the Fs I shall talk and share with you.

It’s been years, a decade or more perhaps, that my family, friends, acquaintances and clients have been trying to persuade me to start to blog and share.

So, here goes The F Words for you by me. My way. Let’s spread some F*cking love here!
