Love Bonito Mid Valley Launch & Fashion Show

Comments (1) Fashion, Fashion, Style & Beauty

Just before i left for my #KBFsummer15 trip, KinkyBlueFairy and MadHat did the fashion show and launch for Love Bonito's first flagship store in Asia, at Mid Valley Megamall! It was a mad scramble coordinating the F&B, models, sponsors, venue set up... and it was a new level of stress altogether. I did think about Rahul and Livescape and how they organise events for tens of thousands of people... i don't know how they do it. Mad respect. I think i'd pass out and die from the pressure!

Gift bags in the ready filled with with laser treatments from Glo Laser Centres, facial treatments and masks from Bluunis, and vouchers from Triumph International Malaysia and Love Bonito; all collectively worth over RM1200.

I shot this pic some time in the afternoon during the dry run and in between the make up and hair sessions for the models and celebs who were walking the runway for that evening. We got Siew Wai to do the models, and she popped by for a bit as she had another major show to do at Starhill or something, so i sorta became the mother hen who had to herd everyone back and forth the venue and hair salon on the other side of the mall. I was trying not to stress about the time as everyone had a set block of time for hair and make up... and i knew the schedule by heart cos i was the one who created it!

Everyone had their hair and make up done at Centro Hair Salon in Gardens.

Make up was done by Urban Decay Cosmetics.
I am currently using their 'Crush' blusher you see in pic as my every day blush.
It looks like a daring pink but comes out lovely on the cheeks!

I call her my giraffe. Because i love giraffes and i love her and they are both lanky and tall and oh you know what i mean.

I got my hair and make up done too, and Centro Hair Salon were so diligent as to ensure i had a hair look despite my not being on the runway that evening! Power la.

Registration started and i put on my calm face while getting the canapes and drinks to come out while greeting arriving guests... I really wish there was a machine to split myself up!

I didn't take these pix, obviously wouldn't have the time. Our designer Andrew did, thankssss!

Canapes from Benquet by BIG, beer from Heineken, and wine from Boozeat

Joseph Germani and Alicia Tan.
It was so funny how i'd never met Alicia before the whole thing, but wanted her to come for it, emailed her an invite, and bumped into her in the dressing room of Dude and the Duchess boutique a week before the event when i was there for a fitting!

Erin from Glo, thank you for sponsoring the laser treatments!
Can't wait to try it myself when i'm back! I'll need it after all the sunshine i've been hiking under...

L-R: Thanu, Amber, Rachel, Viola, Carey, and Meliha.

Viola: "Since establishing our first pop-up store only eight months ago, we’ve been overwhelmed by the response and immense support from women in Malaysia. This has definitely given us the confidence to make the leap into investment of a permanent outlet here. We feel so at home here in KL!”

Rachel: “Malaysia was our first real foray outside of Singapore and it has been a tremendous springboard to our regional expansion. Our experience thus far has been an inspiring one and we’re very excited about growing our presence here, starting with the Mid Valley Megamall store.”
